Re: **NEGATIVE Feedback Thread (for Marketplace and all Subforums)**

Jesse Carlton (BOL -mamelas, WPN – GUARACHES/ElMalandrin) started with our group (Three Amigos Staking) In December of 2019. Things went well outside of the normal up and down grind that is MTT poker. Fast forward to January this year; we had been notified that he had an incident with our accountant. We all talked and thought the incident was behind us. Unfortunately, Jesse’s behavior became erratic, and he bailed on our group after being topped up $1,000. If you want more details on why he thought this was ok, you can search the negative feedback thread.

We have received $605 ($154.60 on 1-12 and $450.40 on 1-25) out of $1,000 (1-8) Jesse was conveniently topped up before bailing on the stake, and then slandering our group. He owes us the total invested amount of $6,743.33. He continues to play on his BOL/WPN accounts. Jesse/mamelas/guaraches is not to be trusted.

He disappeared from the pool, then came back and begged to take him back, we checked the results and took him back. Then his account was frozen with the money, he did not transfer $ 4237, did not say that his account was unfrozen, and disappeared. Can use multiple accounts.
Davide returned all the money, the Steel Phoenix pool has no claims

Henry Strudwick, a.k.a 'Strudman'
Location: Chessington, London (previously Nottingham)
Remaining makeup: £32,388.

Henry took actions to forcibly ended his staking agreement in order to skip his playing through his losses. He has taken on a new staking deal behind my back without informing his new backers of his existing makeup.

Background
Henry's staking came from 3 parties; myself, and two other pokerstars regulars; ThusPrider and Adzman300. We each provided 1/3 of the stake, and took part in mentoring, coaching, providing learning resources for Henry to improve and maintain his game, and arranged transfers to his Pokerstars account.

History
Henry initially won at $100 and $200 zoom. Results started to suffer from April 2020 onwards. Over time, Henry became resistant to advice, and his approach to the grind was increasingly unprofessional.
In October 2020, Henry subjected me to a barrage of verbal abuse in a group skype call, and attempted to forcibly drop me as one of his backers. He removed me from the staking group chats and blocked me from contacting him. ThusPrider/Adzman were able to talk Henry around to adding me back into the staking group chat, after a couple of weeks. Shortly thereafter, Henry had another losing session and required a top-up to continue playing. At this point in time, Adzman stated he no longer wanted to back Henry. Myself and ThusPrider expressed a desire to continue with the staking arrangement.

It was agreed that Henry would pause playing until a solution was found. Adzman had dropped Henry, but did nothing to seek out a replacement backer for his 1/3 of the stake. Myself and ThusPrider began a search, but suggestions of new stakers were consistently met with resistance from Henry. The potential sale of the entire stake to a stable was discussed, but Henry expressed he did not want to be part of any stable. Henry also rejected the idea being advertised to the poker market on forums in order to sell the stake.

The potential restart of the staking arrangement was brought up towards the end of 2020, with Adzman offering continued involvement, however, Henry stated that he had no motivation to play and would be working on his CV in order to get a job - something which I supported. Around the new year, without any warning or incident, Henry blocked on all social media.

In January, I noticed Henry playing $100 zoom, and his sharkscope results showed that he had played some MTTs. I messaged the staking group chat and informed Henry directly that he was breaking his staking contract if he'd taken a deal with another backer. His response, which came days later, was littered with lies and supposed misunderstandings about how staking contracts work. In further discussions, he had such a delusional version of events that I decided my only option was to find his new backers in order to resolve the matter. After speaking to his new backers, it was clear that he had not made them aware of his outstanding makeup. They did not wish to purchase it, and paused Henry's new deal while we worked on a resolution.

In an attempt to find a solution that worked for everyone, myself, ThusPrider, Adzman and Henry discussed selling the stake once again. Henry initially agreed to exploring this option. However, immediately after this group call, Henry wrote out a list of absurd demands about what any new backer had to stake him for. These included; 500 NL online, £1k NL live, and MTTs (something he does not even have enough volume for in order to be considered for staking). This was all in spite of the fact that the staking deal Henry had signed behind my back was just for $100 zoom initially. These demands were obviously impossible to meet, and by not backing down, Henry essentially blocked the sale of his makeup. He also seemed determined to avoid any form of repaying any of the debt, despite generous repayment plans suggested by myself and ThusPrider. When holding him to account, he attacked my character to his new backer's representative, suggesting I was 'abusive' - even after I'd repeatedly offered to help him in the process by writing off a portion of his makeup as part of any sale.

Current Status
ThusPrider is happy to put his portion of Henry's makeup on hiatus, he has stated that he doesn't have much time to work with Henry at this time but believes there may be opportunities in the future. He stated to me that he was unaware of Henry's actions in terms of seeking out a new staking deal without letting us know.

Adzman is happy to put Henry's makeup on hiatus. However, it is important to note that he was the person that dropped Henry and did nothing to help find a new backer in order for the stake continue. Having spoken to other professional stakers, it's evident that Adzman's portion of the makeup should have been transferred to myself and ThusPrider, or entirely wiped out. The reason he wasn't removed from the staking group after dropping Henry was that I believed Adzman to be acting in good faith at the time. It has come to light that he was in fact aware of what Henry was doing the entire time. Allowing this to happen behind the back of a business partner (or former business partner) is clearly out of line.

I have no confidence in Henry ever reopening a staking deal with over £30k of attached makeup, especially since he already went behind my back to secure himself a fresh new deal. As such, a hiatus is not something I am willing to accept. I am certain Henry was desperate to avoid playing through the makeup, as it exemplified by his attempts to write-off some of the makeup by dropping me as a backer.

Henry has admitted some fault in the matter, but only offered me £1500 to buy out the £10,796 debt that he owes to my 1/3 of the stake. After consulting other staking professionals about what would be a reasonable settlement, this seems to fall well below the mark. To avoid having to out Henry, I asked for an initial £3000 repayment, with a further £3000 within the calendar year from Henry's future profits. This would write off almost half of the debt. Nonetheless, Henry refused to negotiate, and told me he doesn't care if I out him. So here we are.

Henry owes me £10,796.

Henry's primary defence to his actions has been that I don't deserve my money back on account of being 'abusive.' Something that anyone who knows me remotely well would find laughable. Nonetheless, I attach below a voice clip of the event where Henry first attempted to skip his makeup by dropping me as a backer to give some insight into his true character, and who the abusive person was in this situation. Adzman (Maxwell) is present in the call, along with another player in the group who remains 'Anon'

Why is this information being released now instead of months ago?
Despite being grimmed numerous times in the 15 years I've been involved in the poker world, I've never outed anyone. I wanted to give Henry time to re-consider his position, and make sure I outed him at a time when the fallout wouldn't cause me distraction from important games. As such, I delayed this post until after SCOOP and other major events I've recently played.

Re: **NEGATIVE Feedback Thread (for Marketplace and all Subforums)**

Hello, I’m Adzman, one of the aforementioned backers in the above staking dispute between Guy Taylor and Henry Strudwick, I would like to offer my account of events to provide some clarity on the above situation.

Firstly I’m very disappointed Guy has decided to post this, especially considering the omission of important information regarding this dispute.

“Henry initially won at $100 and $200 zoom. Results started to suffer from April 2020 onwards. Over time, Henry became resistant to advice, and his approach to the grind was increasingly unprofessional.
In October 2020, Henry subjected me to a barrage of verbal abuse in a group skype call, and attempted to forcibly drop me as one of his backers. He removed me from the staking group chats and blocked me from contacting him. ThusPrider/Adzman were able to talk Henry around to adding me back into the staking group chat, after a couple of weeks. Shortly thereafter, Henry had another losing session and required a top-up to continue playing. At this point in time, Adzman stated he no longer wanted to back Henry. Myself and ThusPrider expressed a desire to continue with the staking arrangement.”

This recounting of events is sort of misleading, Guy and Henry had a big argument the night of 7th October 2020, which is when Guy was removed from the staking chats, and myself and ThusPrider managed the stake with both Guy and Henry for the next month until some of the issues between the two were resolved and Guy was re-added to the staking chat on the 6th November. Whilst not being an ideal situation between the two Guy was kept fully involved in the stake and no one was grimmed or anything of the sort.

Shortly after this I decided to discontinue my part of the stake sometime around the 21st November.

As a collective we agreed to hiatus the stake on the 26th November, citing that while we search for someone to purchase my portion of the stake or otherwise resolve the issue, which Guy and ThusPrider set out to do, whilst this was happening we agreed Henry was free to play games off his own back until then, and by the 13th December we had been unable to find any suitable buyers for my 1/3 of the stake, so we officially decided to put the stake on ‘hiatus’, meaning for the time being Henry was under no obligation to play for us in this time and all outstanding float/stake money was returned to the 3 of us. We were also aware that reopening the stake was unlikely to be viable for at least a reasonable period of time at this stage.

“In January, I noticed Henry playing $100 zoom, and his sharkscope results showed that he had played some MTTs. I messaged the staking group chat and informed Henry directly that he was breaking his staking contract if he'd taken a deal with another backer. After speaking to his new backers, it was clear that he had not made them aware of his outstanding makeup. They did not wish to purchase it, and paused Henry's new deal while we worked on a resolution.”

In an attempt to find a solution that worked for everyone, myself, ThusPrider, Adzman and Henry discussed selling the stake once again. Henry initially agreed to exploring this option.”

Due to the hiatus of Henry’s stake, both myself and ThusPrider had no issue with Henry playing $100 zoom in January, due to the inactivity of our stake and so I had told Henry I had no issue with him playing for another backer, as I perhaps naïvely did not anticipate the potential messiness of Henry playing for another backer whilst our stake was on hiatus, however his new backer was made aware of this outstanding stake, which they expressed concern about, and all parties (Myself, Guy, ThusPrider, Henry and his new backers) set out to resolve this so Henry had a stake moving forward, be it the original one or the new one. On the 25th February, the agreement we came to between all parties was that it was unfair to keep Henry’s stake in limbo, so we set a timeline for us either selling the stake, restarting it, or writing off his losses if we couldn’t find an appropriate solution by the 24th March and that after that point Henry was free to play for himself.

“However, immediately after this group call, Henry wrote out a list of absurd demands about what any new backer had to stake him for. These included; 500 NL online, £1k NL live, and MTTs (something he does not even have enough volume for in order to be considered for staking). This was all in spite of the fact that the staking deal Henry had signed behind my back was just for $100 zoom initially. These demands were obviously impossible to meet, and by not backing down, Henry essentially blocked the sale of his makeup.”

These demands Henry made were the stakes Henry had been playing at the time the stake was ended, his desire to keep playing the stakes he had whilst this makeup was accumulated isn’t an unreasonable request to make, especially given his previous success in all variants he had played for stake, and was merely a starting point for negotiating stakes with both ourselves and any future buyer; hardly an attempt to skip makeup as Guy claims. It’s also important to mention that at no point did we ever have a formal staking offer to buy any portion of the stake to present to Henry to discuss. I would also say whatever new staking deal he signed in the interim is completely irrelevant to the original stake as he’s not in £30k of makeup for a new backer, so him starting at a smaller stake for them is irrelevant.

“Adzman is happy to put Henry's makeup on hiatus. However, it is important to note that he was the person that dropped Henry and did nothing to help find a new backer in order for the stake continue. Having spoken to other professional stakers, it's evident that Adzman's portion of the makeup should have been transferred to myself and ThusPrider, or entirely wiped out. The reason he wasn't removed from the staking group after dropping Henry was that I believed Adzman to be acting in good faith at the time. It has come to light that he was in fact aware of what Henry was doing the entire time. Allowing this to happen behind the back of a business partner (or former business partner) is clearly out of line.”

I have never suggested that I was entitled to any portion of the makeup and if you two had decided to continue you would’ve inherited it for next to nothing. As for not acting in “good faith”, my awareness of events is not in my financial interest at all and I believed they were fair actions for Henry to take given my knowledge of the overall situation, if you feel I didn’t communicate this to you appropriately Guy I apologise for that, but to make out that I have some kind of ulterior motive or gain something from not selling the stake is untrue.

“I have no confidence in Henry ever reopening a staking deal with over £30k of attached makeup, especially since he already went behind my back to secure himself a fresh new deal. As such, a hiatus is not something I am willing to accept. I am certain Henry was desperate to avoid playing through the makeup, as it exemplified by his attempts to write-off some of the makeup by dropping me as a backer.”

As for this, Henry has on multiple occasions re-iterated to you he is/was happy to reopen the stake if he is provided funds, and the fact that the time period in which we agreed to resolve this in (by the 24th of March) has long expired, it is simply unfair to continue to bind Henry in a stake (for what is over 6 months now) with no funds to play, and also have the audacity to attempt to pin this as his fault and him attempting to grim and nothing to do with the stake’s lack of ability to administer the stake is very poor form on Guy’s part.

It’s also worth pointing out that out of the 3 parties involved in administering the stake, 2 out of the 3 parties feel there is no wrongdoing nor is Henry liable for his losses whilst on stake, and unfortunately the bad blood between the two has boiled over and Guy is now taking a swipe at Henry’s reputation as a result of the issues that arose during stake between the two, rather than the actual facts of the matter, which is that Henry is not liable for anything lost on stake.

I hope this helps clarify the situation a bit.

Re: **NEGATIVE Feedback Thread (for Marketplace and all Subforums)**

This will likely be the first and last statement I make regarding the allegations made by Guy Taylor.

I first met all three of the backers in Dusk Till Dawn Casino in Nottingham. We were at first friends who would go for dinners and drinks either side of poker sessions throughout Nottingham (though I knew ThusPrider the least well at the time).

Guy, Adzman and Thusprider approached me some time in late 2019 regarding a staking agreement they wished to setup whereby I would be staked and coached for MTTs and cash games alike both live and online. My understand was that Guy would lead the MTT part and the other two the cash game part.

I started out playing 50nl online and quickly moved up to 200zoom and 500zoom on occasions which became my main grind for the next few months although it should be noted my volume at 200z was far greater, though throughout my time playing cash I would regularly play full MTT sessions under Guy’s guidance.

Sometime around April of 2020 I played a full SCOOP for the first time ever, I was very excited. Unfortunately as things go in the MTT world sometimes I suffered quite a severe downswing and ended up between £17000 and £18000 in makeup.
At this time I was asked to move back to grinding cash games as profits had been far more consistent here and though I was frustrated by this given the size of the makeup I agreed. Unfortunately I then suffered a cash game downswing that went on several months.

During this time Guy’s relationship with myself suffered and arguments over hand history’s (even though he was the MTT coach) and everyday topics became more and more frequent. This unfortunately reached a head sometime late in 2020 where the posted voice recording is taken. That evening I took it upon myself to remove Guy from a Skype chat with myself and the other two backers. He remained removed from that chat for around 1 month although remained part of the staking agreement despite our falling out. I have since apologised to Guy for this.

Sometime in late November after I had bust what was a consistently low balance stars account and after a series of upswings and downswings Adzman announced that he would be leaving the stake.

Multiple days went by before anyone contacted me regarding topping up of the balance and it was suggested at that point that the stake should be sold. I reluctantly agreed to this and the four of us went about looking for potential buyers. Nothing was found.
Some months went by and no buyer was found. Things looked hopeless and I had stopped receiving funds completely at this point, despite wanting to play.

Around late January to early February I was offered a stake elsewhere to initially play 100z again. As my old stake was on hiatus I asked Adzman if I could play elsewhere so that I could make some money. He said I could, at this point money was tough to get on stars so I asked Thusprider for a transfer so that I could make a kind of ‘demonstration video’ for the new stake. He has since mentioned that he didn’t fully understand the ‘demonstration video’ was for a new stake at the time, and was under the impression it was an audition of sorts for a streaming position. He has however mentioned that he has no problem with me playing for a new stake given the state of the situation at hand.

2 weeks went by before Guy Taylor contacted my new stake and informed them that I was currently in makeup and should not be partaking in a new stake without his consent. Some conversations were had and it was decided that I should not play for the stake and that the group would continue to look for a buyer again (despite my willingness to play).

I set a date to find a buyer of a further month, bringing the total of unstaked time to roughly 4 months. In order to ensure I got a fair deal and basically wasn’t sent to grind out of £30000 of makeup at 100z I set expectations for what a buyer should include for me as part of a new staking agreement. These were simply the stakes (up to 500nl online and some 2/5 and 5/10 live) and formats of poker (cash game and MTTs) that had got me into makeup initially.

After sending this message some weeks followed before Guy Taylor announced that I was being unreasonable and was attempting to block the selling of the stake. This was simply untrue and I was in fact going out of my way to find potential buyers for the stake despite it not being my responsibility.

And so here we are. I have continued to play outside their staking agreement as there was nobody to buy the stake and the stake hasn’t continued to stake me. It’s been around 6 months since I was last staked by this group and Guy Taylor, despite a willingness to play. Guy last told me when I mentioned the idea of continuing the stake that he no longer thought I was suitable.

As for Thusprider and Adzman, they have both told me they are happy for me to move on and honestly I had always hoped the stake would reopen one day and they would have a chance to recoup some of their money.

Ultimately, it started out as four friends all in it together.

With regard to the recording, obviously it’s a horrific clip of me at my absolute worst. It’s many months ago now so tough to know what on earth I was really thinking. I made a horrible mistake that night and I’m fully to blame for that night in saying what I did and removing guy from the staking chat. I have since apologised to what was once a good friend, numerous times.

I have also seen that Guy has taken it upon himself to make another post showing a conversation between him and a ‘Hugo Ragnarsson’ claiming that I owe him 4.5k. I don’t really know where to begin with this, I’ve never been subjected to something quite as outlandish before.. I simply have never met, heard of, nor had any contact with anyone called ‘Hugo Ragnarsson’ in my life. Nor do I owe anyone 4.5k. I’m concerned either Guy has taken a message at face value from a random account seeking attention which I encourage him not to do at this time given the public nature of this post, or has either gone out of his way to create another false narrative about me. I can only hope it is the former.

I hope I have addressed most things and as mentioned this will be my only post, I won’t be engaging in any back-and-forth dialogue on the matter and honestly wish Guy and the others well.

What a mess..

The bigoted use of autism as a derogatory phrase in that video clip is quite gross. I hope Henry has learnt a lesson from listening back on that.

Protip: don't stake or be staked by your friends.

Hi guys!
Negative feedback:
Name: Tiberiu (Tibi) Dobrovat
Screen name: Pokerstars: Tibi-nached
skype nached.dobrovat
discord Patronski#9088

After almost 1year of collaboration, he decided that it's time to go own dime. He asked me to give him some money to pay the rent+living costs and after making 2 prechops (2x500eur), he informed me that we will end up the staking deal with him keeping my money. Although i explained him that it is no problem having the deal finished after sending back the make up, he said he'll do that in increments, sometimes in the future.
I gave him some time to reconsider the situation but he doesn't answer the messages anymore.
I will keep you up to date regarding the funds returning.
GL!

We wouldn't post this without being confident in the source, but have been told Bruno has a gambling problem and often plays on other Stars accounts that are not his own.

Bruno owes us $4,230 which includes his starting bankroll for us and makeup. He's breached our agreement at the very least by not hitting the volume/study requirements many months in a row and not securing his accounts (getting hacked is on the player in our agreements).

Combining that with what we've been told about a gambling addiction and playing on other Stars accounts, we cannot back Bruno any longer and have to ask he repay the full makeup and SBR as he's made it impossible to back him to recover these funds.
Bruno has settled this debt with us.

I first met all three of the backers in Dusk Till Dawn Casino in Nottingham. We were at first friends who would go for dinners and drinks either side of poker sessions throughout Nottingham (though I knew ThusPrider the least well at the time).

Guy, Adzman and Thusprider approached me some time in late 2019 regarding a staking agreement they wished to setup whereby I would be staked and coached for MTTs and cash games alike both live and online. My understand was that Guy would lead the MTT part and the other two the cash game part.

I started out playing 50nl online and quickly moved up to 200zoom and 500zoom on occasions which became my main grind for the next few months although it should be noted my volume at 200z was far greater, though throughout my time playing cash I would regularly play full MTT sessions under Guy’s guidance.

Sometime around April of 2020 I played a full SCOOP for the first time ever, I was very excited. Unfortunately as things go in the MTT world sometimes I suffered quite a severe downswing and ended up between £17000 and £18000 in makeup.
At this time I was asked to move back to grinding cash games as profits had been far more consistent here and though I was frustrated by this given the size of the makeup I agreed. Unfortunately I then suffered a cash game downswing that went on several months.

During this time Guy’s relationship with myself suffered and arguments over hand history’s (even though he was the MTT coach) and everyday topics became more and more frequent. This unfortunately reached a head sometime late in 2020 where the posted voice recording is taken. That evening I took it upon myself to remove Guy from a Skype chat with myself and the other two backers. He remained removed from that chat for around 1 month although remained part of the staking agreement despite our falling out. I have since apologised to Guy for this.

Sometime in late November after I had bust what was a consistently low balance stars account and after a series of upswings and downswings Adzman announced that he would be leaving the stake.

Multiple days went by before anyone contacted me regarding topping up of the balance and it was suggested at that point that the stake should be sold. I reluctantly agreed to this and the four of us went about looking for potential buyers. Nothing was found.
Some months went by and no buyer was found. Things looked hopeless and I had stopped receiving funds completely at this point, despite wanting to play.

Around late January to early February I was offered a stake elsewhere to initially play 100z again. As my old stake was on hiatus I asked Adzman if I could play elsewhere so that I could make some money. He said I could, at this point money was tough to get on stars so I asked Thusprider for a transfer so that I could make a kind of ‘demonstration video’ for the new stake. He has since mentioned that he didn’t fully understand the ‘demonstration video’ was for a new stake at the time, and was under the impression it was an audition of sorts for a streaming position. He has however mentioned that he has no problem with me playing for a new stake given the state of the situation at hand.

2 weeks went by before Guy Taylor contacted my new stake and informed them that I was currently in makeup and should not be partaking in a new stake without his consent. Some conversations were had and it was decided that I should not play for the stake and that the group would continue to look for a buyer again (despite my willingness to play).

I set a date to find a buyer of a further month, bringing the total of unstaked time to roughly 4 months. In order to ensure I got a fair deal and basically wasn’t sent to grind out of £30000 of makeup at 100z I set expectations for what a buyer should include for me as part of a new staking agreement. These were simply the stakes (up to 500nl online and some 2/5 and 5/10 live) and formats of poker (cash game and MTTs) that had got me into makeup initially.

After sending this message some weeks followed before Guy Taylor announced that I was being unreasonable and was attempting to block the selling of the stake. This was simply untrue and I was in fact going out of my way to find potential buyers for the stake despite it not being my responsibility.

And so here we are. I have continued to play outside their staking agreement as there was nobody to buy the stake and the stake hasn’t continued to stake me. It’s been around 6 months since I was last staked by this group and Guy Taylor, despite a willingness to play. Guy last told me when I mentioned the idea of continuing the stake that he no longer thought I was suitable.

As for Thusprider and Adzman, they have both told me they are happy for me to move on and honestly I had always hoped the stake would reopen one day and they would have a chance to recoup some of their money.

Ultimately, it started out as four friends all in it together.

With regard to the recording, obviously it’s a horrific clip of me at my absolute worst. It’s many months ago now so tough to know what on earth I was really thinking. I made a horrible mistake that night and I’m fully to blame for that night in saying what I did and removing guy from the staking chat. I have since apologised to what was once a good friend, numerous times.

I have also seen that Guy has taken it upon himself to make another post showing a conversation between him and a ‘Hugo Ragnarsson’ claiming that I owe him 4.5k. I don’t really know where to begin with this, I’ve never been subjected to something quite as outlandish before.. I simply have never met, heard of, nor had any contact with anyone called ‘Hugo Ragnarsson’ in my life. Nor do I owe anyone 4.5k. I’m concerned either Guy has taken a message at face value from a random account seeking attention which I encourage him not to do at this time given the public nature of this post, or has either gone out of his way to create another false narrative about me. I can only hope it is the former.

I hope I have addressed most things and as mentioned this will be my only post, I won’t be engaging in any back-and-forth dialogue on the matter and honestly wish Guy and the others well.
im not taking either side on this dispute, I was asked by Guy Taylor to post here.

around mid december I was looking for horses to stake with my partner, facebook ads in groups were one part of seeking out horses, henry msged me and provided this graph



he introduced himself as a 200z /500z regular, I ultimately decided against staking him for personal reasons I dont wanna mention, nothing to do with his results

whether he left out the 10k downswing or not is not my business and this will most likely be the last post from me regarding this case, dont wanna get too involved.

Whoever this "Henry Henry" is, is clearly a fake name lol. I am not sure if he said his location was Jakarta, India or you mistyped it, but the city of Jakarta is located in Indonesia.

It's coming. I have just been discussing things with one of the other staking partners - ThusPrider, regarding the situation.

I had a online staking deal with Nathan quite awhile ago and we agreed to switch it over to a live staking deal because I never had issues with him while doing an online deal even though he was losing in the games. The live cash stake we set-up was extremely soft and the deal was set-up where he would make some money while grinding off the make-up at the same time. He burned through quite a bit of money at the stakes he was playing and after I reloaded him in mid June and have not heard anything from him since early August. No responses to skype messages, texts, or phone calls. Hopefully everything is ok with him but in the poker world it's usually just a guy stealing funds and then not contacting you anymore unfortunately. Will update the thread if he gets in contact for a payment plan.
Nathan is no longer playing poker and has got in contact and resolved this issue.
