is it really that shocking a guy whos made like 40k in poker disappears when he gets 50k+ sent to him? I took a brief look at his stats and he hasn't made much online atleast(in mtts anyways).......these ppl are getting big sums of money for the wsop when they probably have less then that to their name - its not quite shocking when they run with it.

The link that he posts in the OP for Stars OPR is actually Merge stats.

I am sure scarer is reading this thread. The best thing he can do is just come in here, post what happened, post how he plans top solve it all, and start to work towards that goal.


leaving your investors in the dark just isnt good and is very disrespectful.

He hasn't posted itt since 7/24. Last login 7/25. He refused a friend offering to assist with payments. He's missed the deadline for his return home when he was supposed to pay everyone back. About time to blow this up imo.

Pretty sure it is tbh man - just not a ton that people can do but sit tight and hope OP does the right thing (that's the scary thing about staking - it's happened to us all at some stage).

I'd assume some people close enough to him are keeping up with this thread and would have knowledge about that if that was the case.

From what I've seen it seems like a fair amount of threads have ended like this or at best the investors slowly getting their money back. Makes you not want to buy any action.

Even the ones where people aren't getting scammed, the people end up not playing the pkg, or lie about it and get caught, and refund the money in a painstaking fashion.

Just randomly click on some finished stakes on here and it won't take long to run into one.

There are many packages run smoothly here with no issues. This unfortunately isn't one of them.

fwiw this happened more in previous years where the wsopdb wasn't available and people would like about what events they actually played, it happens a lot less now (this was the only one i know of this year on mp) because people will find out quickly if you're not playing.

David, if you've made a mistake, come clean now and we can assess the damage together, and figure out next steps. I'm (personally) not looking to excoriate you for any mistakes, I just want you to avoid doing anything desperate and digging a deeper hole for yourself. If you've lost some backer money gambling, fess up now, let's put you on a payment plan and everyone can move on.

If you consider ~2 per summer a fair amount then yeah.

It should be fairly obvious why - either the victims are bumping those threads to keep them alive or the scammer is posting updates on getting the funds back to investors so they stay towards the top.
