An investigation of Absolute Poker is underway over allegations of cheating by an insider.
Absolute Poker, established in 2003, is ranked the 4th largest online poker destination by 4Flush.com, an information site for online gambling. Absolute Poker is based on the Kahnawake Mohawk Indian reservation that spans the US-Canadian border south of Montreal. While this location has been infamous as a route for smuggling, cheating in online gambling could ruin any company that does not exercise considerable vigilence.
Looking at player responses to the scandal, it surprises me how many people aren’t bothered by the event and plan to continue to play poker online.
