Yet another cheating scandal is about to emerge in the online poker world. This time it's two high stakes players that have fallen victim to a scam. Both players have had trojan horses installed on their computers by a German poker player who has won about $400,000 from them. The victims come from Switzerland and Austria and the German cheater is now located in England. One of the victims is rumored to be EPT Tallinn winner Ronny Kaiser.
All three players have been present at the Poker EM which is currently being played in Baden, Austria, and according to a German poker news site, the two victims managed to make it into the German's hotel room and confronted him and pressured him to confess.
Police arrived at the hotel shortly after, however, the German didn't admit once the police were present. He told the police that they had forced him to confess.
The local police is investigating the case as Internet Fraud at the moment.
