Tournament Ranking Site Takes Action Against French Pros

Tags: Cedric Rossi, Global Poker Index, live tournament ranking, Paul Pierre Pasqualin.
Posted on 14 February 2013 by "T".

A video montage of alleged cheating at the 2009 Partouche Poker Tour Grand Final was uploaded to You Tube on January 28. The man behind the video, Nordine Bouya, claimed that the winner (Paul Pierre Pasqualini) and the second place finisher (Cedric Rossi) used a simple code to signal to each other what cards they had. The video has been viewed over 115,000 times so far and has generated a wild debate.

Global Poker Index (GPI), a ranking site of the top 300 live tournament players in the world, has debated the matter internally for the last 10 days and now decided to suspend Paul Pierre Pasqualin and Cedric Rossi.

"By taking this action, we are not claiming that we know they cheated - this is up to the casinos and the overseeing regulatory bodies to decide. What we are convinced of is that there wasn't fairness at the table. Unfair behaviour will not be promoted via the Global Poker Index. It goes against everything I'm trying to do to promote poker, players and events," wrote Alexndre Dreyfus on GPI's website.

I think GPI did well in taking this decision. Of course it won’t be them the identity responsible for judging the acts of the two players, but advancing with such an attitude towards the suspicion is a way to show the poker world and all its intervenient the way they look at activities like this. Now we will have to wait for other identities to act to see how will they answer to such things.

just watched the video on youtube and unless they both have bad nerves and tics they were definately colluding as there actions when they had certain cards are tooo similar all through the tournament

There’s no way this could be just similar nervous reflections of them. Ok, so they could have been in different tables during the tourney (don’t know how it start or the size of the field), but while they were at the same table, it’s obvious what they were doing. That AK is definitely one hand to take in consideration: who would, at least, see the flop? Ok, we’re talking about pros who don’t play any hand, but AK? No excuse!
