Former High-Stakes Pro Accused Of Fraud

Tags: fraud, high stakes, trojan.
Posted on 11 December 2014 by "T".

A former Danish high-stakes poker player has been reported to the department of economical fraud in Denmark. The reason is that several players of the Danish poker community have found trojan horses on their computers that they believe were installed by the suspect in question. The accused could allegedly see the other players hole cards on different poker sites.

One of the victims told that he became suspicious when his computer had been restarted while he was out of the house. He checked his surveillance cameras and discovered that they had turned off for 15 minutes earlier that evening when someone had broken in to his house and installed a trojan on his computer.

Police-commissary Torben Koldborg Fredriksen told Danish press that they are currently investigating the matter but that no arrest have been made so far. The accused is described as one of the most famous Danish high-stakes players, having won an EPT title. We know the name of the alleged fraudster, but we have decided not to mention it here until more information has been released.

The more you look into this story the more murkier it becomes,I did wonder how a poker player has the skills to break into a home,disable a home security system,plant a trojan and get out but then I read that he could have......." received help from a mystery partner within the Danish police force, who specialises in the creation of trojans to “spy on the computer activity of suspected criminals.”
Also it seems this activity could have been going on for up to a decade so it will be interesting to see how this story evolves.

What a story this is. It is like something out of a James Bond film and you wonder how many more case of this there are. They can come and spy on my 1c tables anytime they want!!

Hey snippy.....I think it is quite easy to break into your own house but this top poker player has said he had cctv so I'm sure he also had a decent alarm/security system and probably had better than normal security on his laptop.
If she was your "ex" then surely your suspicions were not too hard to figure out and if you then broke into her house and put spyware on her computer then maybe.....just maybe.....she was not the ying to your yang!!Hopefully next time you will use marriage guidance instead of burglary and computer espionage.

Well that is the price to pay if you play poker and is well known and you making lots of money and living a baller life, you will always get some unscrupulous people always around and wanting to get your money by stealing or doing some bad shit and they will not work hard like you did or like every player at the top to deserve the money and fame they win. Anyway peace out and nice article good luck!

It seems too complicated to be done for just one person. Unless he had access to that computer, for example, being a friend or well known from the victim. That could be one of the ways to explore the case. Never the less, this is another big stain in the image of poker players in general and that should be what worries us the most.
