Friday, Nov 28, 2008 CBS 60 Minutes on the recent poker scandals
This weekend CBS 60 minutes will air a piece about the recent online poker cheating scandals. "The Cheaters" will air on Sunday on CBS.
There's been a talk for a while in the poker community about a piece on the Absolute Poker and Ultimate Bet scandals being broadcasted in CBS 60 Minutes. It was first supposed to be showed October 26, but now the time has finally come.
The Absolute Poker and Ultimate Bet scandals shocked the poker community. Player's using "super user" accounts could see the other players' cards winning millions of dollars in the process. One of the alleged cheaters is former world champion Russ Hamilton.
Since then the Kahnawake gaming Commission has fined the two poker rooms, the players that lost money have been refunded and measures have been taken to assure that it can never happen again.
The piece on Sunday will feature interviews with WSOP Champion Greg Raymer and WPT-host Mike Sexton.
