JJProdigy Loses Prize

I am glad they resolved this issue in the way they did. I guess it was Party Poker and not Pokerstars where this happened. He does not deserve to win and for once Party Poker did what was right.

Dear Brent,

On Sunday February 12th, 2006 you participated in our $500k Guaranteed
$215 Buy-in Tournament.

After the tournament concluded, our investigations team conducted an
investigation into two of the accounts that had participated in the
tournament (ABlackCar and JJProdigy). After an in-depth investigation, the
investigations team; in conjunction with the poker manager, legal and
management, made a determination that, based on the evidence, the two
accounts had played in the $500k Tournament from the same IP address and
both from the same computer.

A decision was made to disqualify both accounts from the tournament and
redistribute the prize money accordingly. One of the accounts placed
1st in the tournament while the other placed 2,162nd (out of the money).
In addition, both accounts have been suspended and will no longer be
allowed to play at PartyPoker.com.

Each player that placed in the money has been moved up one spot,
including the player that had previously finished 401st (one spot out of the
money). Although there is no perfect way to rectify this situation, we
feel that this was the best way to redistribute the money.

Previously you had placed 4th in the tournament and won $41,300.
Moving you up to 3rd place, resulted in a new prize payout of $51,800, an
increase of $10,500.The additional money will be credited to your account
within the next week.

We appreciate the diligence with which our players help to keep our
tables safe and friendly.

If you have any further questions, comments or concerns, please contact
us at alerts@PartyPoker.com and we will be more than glad to assist
you.

Regards,
Investigations Team

PP doing the right thing? I guess this one was just too obvious to let go. And he sounds so sorry, why don't you just give him your extra 10k and make him promise not to do it again.

Huh? What the hell are you saying? I am happy the cheater does not get to win. I do think Party should give him his other 40K back unless they can prove he made that by cheating.
