When playing online or in person, both amateur and professional poker players are expected to follow all the rules. In short, don’t lie. If you do that, you’ll probably be caught.
Ali Imsirovic and Jake Schindler, who are both professional poker players, have been accused of cheating at the game. Because of this, OKBet Casino has banned them from events until further notice.
Taken off OKBet Casino
The two did not play in the recent Poker Masters, and they are not on the leaderboard for the OKBet Casino Tour. The players can’t win, and they now have to face the charges that they cheated. In a statement about the situation, OKBet Casino company said that the bans were permanent and would last until the 2022 season. There will be a review, and a choice will be made at that time.
“The PGT is committed to upholding the highest standards of honesty and puts a lot of emphasis on good behavior to make sure that its players and events are safe and secure.”
Several other professional poker players have said that both of these players cheated in live games and used tools online to get an edge. This is sad to hear. The claims have not been answered by Imsirovic or Schindler.
The people on trial are good poker players who have won more than $53 million in live tournaments. If the cheating claims turn out to be true, their poker careers would take a big hit.
Strong claims that someone cheated
Alex Foxen, a poker pro, said that Imsirovic was cheating in April 2022. He says that Imsirovic gets help online in real time and that he is known to use multiple accounts and work together with players he pays for live events.
Foxen also says that during a high roller event with a $100,000 buy-in, Imsirovic looked at another player’s hole cards. Foxen said on Twitter that a lot of high rollers know that Imsirovic cheats, but they don’t say much because they don’t have much “ironclad proof.”
Other players, like Justin Bonomo and Chance Kornuth, have also said similar things about Imsirovic. In spite of the accusations, Imsirovic went to the WSOP and played in tournaments. During the series, he caused a lot of trouble by being there.
It will be interesting to see if either poker player comes forward now that OKBet online Casino has decided to stop them from playing. The move is a big one, and poker pros who want to make sure the game stays fair are probably happy about it.
