PartyPoker confiscated winning from WPT500 champion
There are many stories telling about players who lost their winnings due to dishonest play.
Such a story happened to the player from the UK, who won a big tournament at PartyPoker over a week ago.
David Afework played in $530 WPT500 tournament at PartyPoker with a prize pool of $1 044 000. He managed to take the first place and earned $160 210.
However, Afework didn’t celebrate his victory for long, because he received e-mail from the support service of the poker room. According to the letter, the player’s winning will be confiscated due to the fact that David gave access to his account for the third parties.
Afework told this story on one of the poker forums and gave comments concerning this situation. According to his words, the suspicions in multi-accounting have arose due to the fact that he has been living with another poker player for 7 months. Probably, the poker room sees the game from the same IP or something like that.
David states that he hasn’t provided access to his account and he is honest about it. Afework also added that he was completely alone during the entire period of his play in this tournament. Moreover, he will sue the poker room for his winning.
PartyPoker representatives haven’t yet reacted to David's accusations. However, they posted excerpts from their User Agreement that indicate certain actions, which violate the poker room’s rules.
By the way, PartyPoker shared the British player’s winning among other participants of the event. The Swede Henning Andre was awarded the champion title, but initially he finished as a runner-up with a payout of $108 790.
