Bad Debts Cause Brad Booth To Flee Canada
When Brad “Yukon” Booth made his debut on GSN’s High Stakes Poker a few years ago, the Canadian cash game player became an overnight sensation. These days, however, if rumours are to be believed “Yukon” has since hit rock bottom.
According to a thread started by Douglas “WCGrinder” Polk on the TwoPlusTwo forums, Booth entered into an agreement whereby a large transfer of $30,000 was transferred to him over Lock Poker, but failed to live up to the conditions he had promised.
Polk, the player who is currently out of pocket due to Booth’s alleged conduct, explained: “When we met up, he told me the unsettling news of many of his other debts, how little money he has and the inside scoop on many additional things. I told him if he continues to work with me and stay in contact, and make some small payments at a time, we can work something out.
“He agreed and a week later made me a payment of $2,200,” continued Polk. “However, since then he has left the country, changed his phone number and started completely ignoring me.”
The news of Booth’s alleged welching comes as yet another low point for the Canadian’s career which, by his own admission, has been stuck in a downward spiral since he lost $2 million of his own money during the UltimateBet super-user scandal plus another $500,000 he borrowed to stay afloat.
