The Las Vegas spending spree that brought down online poker
Here's a fascinating story about the rise and fall of Daniel Tzvetkoff. Who's he? A tech whiz who created a payment processing system for major online poker websites. His lavish and expensive tastes, however, led to bitter money disputes with online poker operators. And then he dropped a dime on his clients. From the Sydney Morning Herald:
Thanks to Tzvetkoff's insider knowledge, the FBI is now rounding up and arresting the 11 men who run the world's biggest online poker websites. But while Tzvetkoff may have got out of jail, he has lost his freedom, probably for life.
