Cracking Down on Poker Cheaters | Poker Integrity Council | Jason Koon

GGPoker is launching a Poker Integrity Council (PIC) to help put a stop to rampant cheating within the game.

The council includes five well-respected members, and not all are connected to GGPoker. Jason Koon and Fedor Holz (GGPoker), Andrew "LuckyChewy" Lichtenberger (LearnWPT), Seth Davies (Run it Once), and Nick Petrangelo (Upswing Poker) have been selected to help fix one of poker's biggest problems — cheating.

Council members will be called upon to investigate integrity issues on a case-by-case basis. Once an online poker account is flagged for reasons such as potential real-time assistance (RTA) use, ghosting, or other illegal activities, the PIC will review hand histories and then make a ruling on if disciplinary action is necessary.

Punishment for being caught cheating at GGPoker following a ruling from the PIC could include a simple warning, an account suspension, or a permanent ban from the poker site with the confiscation of funds. That will all depend on how blatant the violation is, among other factors.

Even worse for those permanently banned for serious offenses, the PIC is working with major live tournament operators to install an industry-wide ban. That includes the World Series of Poker (WSOP), World Poker Tour (WPT), Triton Poker, Poker After Dark, Kings Casino, Asian Poker Tour (APT) and many more.
