I feel bad for brad as he lost about 1 1/2 million in the cheating scandal but was reimbursed only about 250 thousand,,,, but the thing is brad admitted he lost on 7 or 8 different accounts, some he created then some he borrowed from friends,,,, he claims multi accounting was'nt a big deal a few years back when all of this took place!!! , if it was'nt a big deal it's because not enough players had been caught yet, and yes it is a big deal !!,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, i feel bad for anyone who gets cheated but whats the chance that he was using 2 or 3 accounts at one table previous to the scandal, for all we know that could be how a lot of these so called pros build up thier big rolls, not saying brad did this but you know somebody somewhere has and still does! ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, i think a high percentage of online players have more than one account at the same site, especially higher limit type players,,, if for no other reason when they lose a bunch of money and have to move down in stakes they could use a different account for grinding back up and avoid some embaresment! ,,,,,,,,,, each time the sites figure out how to detect some of this the cheaters figure out another way to go undetected for another year or 2!

the interview i heard sounds like most of the money he lost was heads up back when russ hamilton and a few others could see opponents hole cards!  ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, brad says he lost his money then would borrow money to play the next day and lose it again within 10 or 15 minutes! ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, i can understand a good player like brad thinking he could get it back but after you're down a few hundred thousand on the internet and you're gettin crushed each session you have to start to think something aint right,,,, how does he let himself lose 1 1/2 million?,,,,, ,,,,,,, to compound the problem brad says he got into betting sports to try to get back some of his poker losses and ended up owing the bookies a ton!,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, the interview is on donkdown , they have a 4 hour podcast each wednesday night, this interview was wednesday before last, they leave the old ones up in case you want to listen to some of it.

I'll check that out.

I know he used to LIVE in the Bellagio...

Can't imagine I would continue playing someone after losing that much that fast...

I find it hard to feel empathy for Booth because he admitted to cheating himself using several different accounts but as I stated in another thread Russ Hamilton is a genius. IMO most of the higher limit players have multiple accounts(cheaters) and he found a way to profit roughly $20 million from these people and apparently will get away with it.Scam the sammers.
