Superuser Scandal Led To Jason Koon’s Exit From GGPoker?


People in the poker universe were in for a shock when high stakes player Jason Koon tweeted announcing his exit from GGPoker. The poker pro wrote in his tweet, “GGPoker and I have gone our separate ways. I wish them continued success.” The comments section was full of users showing concern for this untimely exit and wanted to know if his contract was over or was it due to the superuser scandal that rocked GGPoker’s boat. 

 

Many users in the comments section mentioned how it was obvious for the pro to leave given that GGPoker has been suffering with online cheating cases which puts its reputation and integrity on the line. 

Not just this, as per news reports on the superuser scandal, GGPoker was aware that an account called ‘Moneytaker69’ was exploiting a client vulnerability which automatically gave this player an unfair advantage over his opponents. 

Fedor Holz signs on as GGPoker Ambassador

 

A user named ‘GGSuperUser’ blew the lid on ‘MoneyTaker69’ and exposed his superusing tactics on GGPoker. This expose was made on a popular forum called 2+2. This lengthy post shows the tournament win and the great run of the cheating player and how his moves were suspicious given that he had access to VIP features and had gained an upper hand in the game whilst exploiting the software glitch on the platform. 

GGPoker Superuser Scandal

In the post shared on 2+2 one of the questions raised was how this player was cheating to make money. The post further explains that he can see his rival’s cards given his action in the hands played. RTA couldn’t possibly make this happen for ‘Moneytaker 69’. 

GGPoker soon shared an update about a security breach which certainly saw many players posting about their disappointment over the incident. The platform mentioned that the poker cheater’s account was blocked and his winnings were confiscated. 

 

But does this solve the problem? Not fully. Many players and folks in the community demand a stronger action from GGPoker given the poker giant is putting in much effort to stop online cheating on its website but hasn’t been fully successful in making that happen. The superuser scandal only added to GGPoker’s headache further.

Koon parting ways with GGPoker is looked at as a sign that not all is well at GGPoker. The poker brand replaced Koon with German poker pro Fedor Holz as the Integrity Ambassador. Will this move by GGPoker help save its sinking ship when it comes to trust and maintaining the site’s integrity amid the cheating scandal? Only time will tell.
