Following up here.

Brandon Veilleux had a contract with Imawhale. Same deal we have for all MTT players. 70/30 split in our favor, but with expiring makeup. Every 300 games the set is settled, profits are chopped, and any makeup is wiped away and forgiven. Brandon did run hot during his short time staked by Imawhale. Anyone who plays MTTs for a long enough period of time will experience 300 tournament stretches where they experience SIGNIFICANT downswings. When those occur, Imawhale eats all of the losses and the player loses nothing. We structure this way to protect both ourselves and players from the bad situations that arise when an MTT horse is buried in a huge amount of makeup.

He decided that since he had been winning, he would steal $5k+ of our money, and rationalize it by saying "forget about the contract, forget about potential losses, they should just be happy they made some money". Of course had Brandon lost, he would not have come out of pocket and reimbursed our losses because the current profit split wasn't working out to 50/50. We wouldn't expect him to. If he continued to play he'd eventually hit a nasty downswing, as all players do from time to time, at which time we would swallow some big losses and just keep going at no penalty to him.

Brandon was free to opt out of the contract at any time. He kept renewing the deal over and over up until the point he decided to steal. At any point he felt the arrangement wasn't fair, he could have walked away and we could have settled up. Instead, he kept going and ultimately ran off with the cash.
This has to be one of the best MTT staking deals I've seen in favour of the horse.

I worked with the guys at Imawhale for many years earlier in my career. They are all incredibly fair/kind/helpful people. It's super unlikely that the poor communication was from their end. And as was already said even if there was bad communication there is no excuse for theft. With expiring makeup this was obviously a very fair deal and trying to justify stealing funds because they still ended up money overall is asinine.

Marius at times seemed like a good hard working horse but he kind of felt entitled to play games that were above the limits approved for him. We had a few instances where we had to warn him. At one point we thought things were going well for awhile and didn't audit him as often as we should have. We were disappointed to find out he put us in this terrible of a position and played well over $5000 worth of games that were not approved. He was roughly $25,000 in make-up and we were forced to cut him as this was way above crossing the line. He hasn't made any legitimate attempt at coming up with a solution for paying us back over time. He made some jokes about sending us some laughable amounts but has yet to work something reasonable out with us over time. He is definitely a problematic horse that you should stay away from. If he actually has intentions of making things right and does so I will update this thread.
I reached an agreement with Marius awhile back and he has paid back what we agreed upon to resolve the issue. The issue has been fully resolved. I wish him the best moving forward.

I was part of a group that staked this player from 2014-2018. The name we were given was Bogdan Cojocariu, which is definitely a male, as seen by the ID he sent us.

Ah i thought so i also asked for a selfie which wasn't provided, he used a fake Romanian ID i have a copy of, i also found he uses the same ID for a twitter account and a instagram, and a site when tries to sell pictures for crypto. Did you have issues with this player?

We ended up letting him go after 4 years, but all funds were returned, so in our case, he did nothing wrong.
