Poker Pros Lodge Formal Complaint Against Ultimate Bet

Brad Booth, Tom Koral and Dustin “neverwin” Woolf were three of the more high-profile names to file a RICO complaint against the former owners of Ultimate Bet, Excapsa Software, earlier this week.

A total of eight plaintiffs – all of them former players – have claimed that the defunct online poker site stole $20 million from their regular users via an in-house hole-card scam perpetuated by their former employees.

Between them, the players are seeking an injunction and damagers for a range of charges including RICO conspiracy, conversion, interference with prospective economic damage, international infliction of emotional distress, unfair business practices and fraud and negligence, according to the complaint filed previously.

The defendants in the complaint are 6356095 Canada Inc. (Excapsa Software) and 10 unnamed individuals employed by the company and it will now be down to them answer the charges individually and give their explanation of the cheating scandal.

For those who don’t recall the event, the hole-card scam Booth and his fellow plaintiffs are referring to was a subject of great public interest and scrutiny several years ago after players complained that employees playing under mysterious usernames were using software that enabled them to see opponent’s secret hole cards.

Booth in particular has been very vocal about the incident, stating that it had ruined his life and explaining to DonkDown Radio last year that he had been cheated out of $2 million of his own money and even more that he’d borrowed from his peers.
