Ivan Tang – also known at Kit Sing Tang who is originally from Hong Kong is believed to be a scammer and a thief who plays in the London casinos and some London private games.
We staked Ivan for ~18 months and have a written contract saying all poker played is on stake.
Ivan lied to us continually and said he had no time for poker anymore as he was working on his business – Legit App (an app to check if shoes are fakes). Around 10 months later with Ivan playing close to 0 volume we found out according to other people playing the same private games, that Ivan had played hundreds of hours of poker in these games during the period he said he had not played.
He since admitted on a recorded call he played these games off stake (which is a clear breach of the staking agreement we signed with Ivan) although still having access to coaching and stable resources.
We were friends with Ivan outside of poker but this did not stop him. He went behind our backs to avoid paying off makeup. We have offered arbitration, and tried countless times to show him he was in the wrong. But he is not interested and instead informed us if we post this, he will sue us for libel.
Ivan owes us £15,211 and informed us he would not be paying us back. It is in our opinion Ivan Tang is a scammer, we recommend you not to do any financial transaction with him.
