I was banned from WSOP for no reason

Hello, community! My name is Vladimir Dobrovolskii.

http://pokerdb.thehendonmob.com/player.php?a=r&n=239672

I have become a victim of some system mistake

First day i arrived to Vegas this summer i was trying to register into Tournament in Aria casino. But supervisor told me that im in a black list on all money games in all there network. They are never was told why.

I also was trying to get in touch with security but was also not able to get any info.

Next day i had a meeting with police by my own initiative. They asked me few strange questions. I told that last years im a professional poker player. I also asked them to talk to security to unblock me and that im open to any conversation and questions.

Days later i have played few WSOP events in RIO. But one day i came to register next one and was walked away to the street by security and manager. They told i banned to play in all Caesars for one year now. They also told i can send email to security department for further information.

The most horrible thing is that I'm banned from playing WSOP. It's killing me as a professional poker player who is playing poker for living.

Im sure that i never was involved into any bad games, cheating activities or something like that. Im really sure that it's some big mistake. I have good rating and contract.

I need help from the poker community. Maybe somebody had same problems in the past. Maybe somebody have contacts of WSOP management, WSOP lawyer or just some good professional lawyer that can really help.

Any help is appreciated!
Thanks

Well, at risk of asking the obvious, have you emailed the relevant security departments? What did they say?

Re: I was banned from WSOP for no reason

In virtually every "... for no reason" thread on 2+2 that I have read, there is one fact that the OP leaves out that would likely explain everything.

So, what is that one fact that -- as crazy as it must seem -- maybe/could be/possibly be misunderstood/misinterpreted by the authorities to cause them to ban you?

They gave me the only phone security Ceasars. I called this number, the operator listened to me and said they will call back. No one called back. Now I'm trying to figure out the appropriate problem's email

How many games did you play at wsop this year? How many cashes if any did you make? You must know something more then what you are telling us here. They had to have given you some kind of specific reason. Why did they tell you you were banned for 1 year? Did you email them yet?

Did you give them any strange answers?

To be serious for a second, this case sounds pretty interesting. If you're completely legit, it sounds like a case of mistaken identity. Maybe someone with the same (or similar) name is on a banned list. It's hard for NVG to help, so I suspect you should keep asking the supervisors/security for more info or you should go direct to the tournament director or something. Presumably a well known pro can vouch for you?

+1 Also, defendingthehonour do you have a Russian friend there with you who can speak proper English because your English is quite hard to understand here on the forum.

In the meantime, tell us the rest of the story, so we know why you are actually banned.

Re: I was banned from WSOP for no reason

Reminds me of a job I used to have. Customers would get error messages asking them to call a certain number for resolution and then they'd contact my department, repeat the message and then get mad when we told them well you need to call the number you were told to call to resolve this.
