Poker tournaments, like other gambling games, are often accompanied by scandals, conflicts and other unpleasant events. When cash winnings are at stake, it's not far off. Every participant or player wants to win.
This is confirmed by the recent poker tournament in Los Angeles, which was followed by accusations of cheating the participant, who became the winner of a substantial cash prize.
The essence of a new scandal in the world of poker is that a newcomer to this level of competition cheated her opponent and the judges:
The scene of the scandalous end game was the Hustler Casino Live tournament held in Los Angeles.
All the details of the scandal are revealed by the Daily Mail tabloid. First briefly about the poker players themselves:
According to the poker pro, the opponent won by accident because she was using a hidden vibrating device, which she needed to get information about how good the cards she was holding were.
The woman went all-in when she had a rather weak combination in poker, that is, "the hand". She came the high jack, which brought the victory.
Adelstein's reasons for doubting fair play were quite high: he needed a clubs, jacks, or sixes. The opponent was in a much worse situation.
Garrett Adelstein's bewilderment was boundless, and therefore further events unfolded as follows:
The explanation, of course, did not satisfy the losing side. The conflict was not over.
A little later there is a message from Garrett Adelstein about an alleged offer he received from Robbie Lew to return his bet. Behind this, the loser sees something that clearly points to her guilt.
Garrett Adelstein engaged in an extensive analysis of the previous games of his 35-year-old rival. Based on that, he suggested the presence of a vibrating device or some other type of cheating. There was no evidence from his side.
Hustler Casino Live co-founder Nick Vertucci suggests that Robbie Liew, due to her inexperience, simply misjudged her cards. He also notes the fact that the organizers have carefully checked everything and could not have missed any devices.
By the way, a similar scandal previously took place in the chess world. After the world champion Magnus Carlsen lost a game to Hans Niemann, the latter was accused of cheating. A protest against foul play was announced, which was followed by withdrawal from the Sinquefield Cup tournament, which subsequently annulled all Niemann's results.
