In the beginining of july 2010 the account "gordylamb" started playing high stakes PLO and NLH on pokerstars. Previously the account had very little cash game experience and primarily played low stakes MTTS since early 2007.
The gordylamb account was linked to pocketfives user Rochustler
In the profile it says hes from Rochester, NY. His username on Pokerstars is Gordylamb, and on FTP it is ISHWER.
Here is Gordylambs PTR
In about 4 months time, playing against some of the best players on the internet, this lowstakes mtt player went on to win nearly 1 million dollars.
Around the end up August Gordylamb disappeared from the games on pokerstars.
Stars invesitaged this account and found enough evidence to perma ban this player from their site.
At the same time Gordylamb account appeared to start playing High stakes PLO and NLH, ISHWER on FTP started as well.
Only July 17th this account started playing and stopped playing July 21st, after dropping nearly 120,000.
Both accounts had little cash game experience before July 2010.
I heard rumors that owner of the gordylamb account was friends with poker player boobysmiles/ugotabana Harry Kaczka.
After hearing this I emailed stars wondering why neither account had appeared since august 2010.
Here is stars response
After a few more emails it became clear that there was a connection between the two accounts and that both were banned.
Only 1/13/2011 2p2 user Jrosealm confirmed that Harry Kaczka was playing under the Gordylamb account and that both accounts were banned and that Pokerstars allowed the funds to be cashed out.
This isn't the first time Harry had been accused of playing under another account
Jrosealm confirmed that Harry had "ghosted him" while playing 4 tables hu vs sootedjokers on ftp. After an investigation on FTP they found enough evidence to ban him, but allowed him to cash out the funds won.
I am unsure if ISHWER is banned from FTP, I am not even sure if Harry Kaczka played under that account. But I think there is a strong possibility that he did.
After allowing Harry Kaczka to cash out the money won on gordylamb, both the gordylamb account and Boobysmiles got permanently banned from pokerstars.
This past week Pokerstars was running the PCA in the Bahamas. Harry Kaczka was allowed to play in the main event down in the Bahamas, after being permanently banned from Pokerstars.
7 figures stolen from poker community by Harry Kaczka, playing under gordylamb.
Investigated by stars, enough evidence to ban, not enough to confiscate funds
Stars allows Harry Kaczka to play in their flagship Live tournament after being banned from their website.
Harry Kaczka is a cheater.
