Millionaire Bill Perkins has become one of the world’s most-popular recreational poker players. He frequently mixes it up with top high rollers.
However, Perkins recently alluded to a major cheating scandal that he’s part of. The legendary gas trader won’t offer any actual details as of yet, though.
What Tidbits Is Perkins Offering on the Cheating?
Again, Perkins is very vague about the potential cheating scandal. He merely offered a few confusing tweets on the matter.
The founder of Thirst Lounge noted that he knows of a “Cheating scandal in poker going on that would make the Mike Postle scandal look like a church service.”
As you may know, Mike Postle was caught cheating in live televised poker games. Postle’s actions made prime time poker news.
“Really hard to wrap my head around. I’m very disappointed in many people,” Perkins continued tweeting. “Some you would call poker heroes. 1 person/pro showed integrity others failed miserably.”
Is It Possible to Top Postle Cheating Scandal?
Postle is currently at the heart of a $10 million lawsuit. He stands accused of cheating opponents out of six figures during Stones Live streams from 2018 to 2019.
Postle’s cheating scandal made national and international headlines. Therefore, Perkins’ scandal would have to be extremely big by comparison.
Not surprisingly, Bill Perkins’ cryptic tweets have caused rampant speculation throughout the poker community. Many want to know who tried ripping him off.
The only solid detail is that Jason Koon isn’t the alleged perpetrator. In fact, he’s the only player who “acted in integrity” during the game.
“I have been permission to say that @JasonKoon was the pro who was tempted and acted in integrity,” Perkins clarified. “I’ve always liked Jason and now I love him.
“So you can stop speculating about him. I’m still in investigative mode and not ready to discuss. As I said hard to wrap my head around.”
