Daniel Negreanu has revealed to his Twitter followers that he is willing to bet Jake Schindler and Ali Imsirovic do not play any of the upcoming Poker Masters events. It is unclear if he has inside information or not but does sound sure of himself.
Alleged Poker Cheaters Jake Schindler and Ali Imsirovic Possibly Banned from Poker Masters
Poker Masters today and I’m betting we don’t see Jake Schindler or Ali Imsirovic play any of the events…

The question on everybody’s lips is likely to be: is there an official ban on the pair that has been implemented privately?
Jake Schindler and Ali Imsirovic are both alleged cheaters, having been accused of using real-time assistance in online poker and multi-accounting, but they haven’t been found guilty of breaking any laws so it is unclear why they would be singled out given the lengthy list of offenders.
Or have more players been told they are not welcome? We have no idea but hope that more information regarding the Daniel Negreanu reveal comes to light.
Where do we draw the line with banning cheaters? There has to be some kind of agreement on the different levels of offence.
Justin Bonomo, for example, was sanctioned by PokerStars for multi-accounting around 15 years ago. Is this the same as using RTA in the modern day? Possibly not but opinions will be divided for sure.
Multi accounting 15 years ago is not the same using RTA at the highest stakes for multiple years. And possibly running stables where people are taught to use this RTA. Throw in some form of colluding and soft playing, it’s for sure worse than Bonomo

Back in May, 2022, Jake Schindler and Ali Imsirovic played in a $100K event at the EPT Monte Carlo but were conspicuously missing from the $50K.
Dietrich Fast tweeted that the disgraced pair were enjoying the beach instead of playing but he had no news of an official ban.
Breaking: Ali and Jake enjoying the Beach in Monte Carlo instead of playing the 50k. A ban is possible but not confirmed. I will keep you updated

We await to see what effect the new GGPoker Integrity council has on cheating in the game. Live series organisers are already on board and once there is congruence and agreement in thinking and how to proceed we should see some concrete action.
