Norman Chad Calls for Minimum 10 Years WSOP Ban for Poker Cheaters

Norman Chad has called for a minimum 10-year WSOP ban for players found guilty of any kind of cheating no matter if live or online. The veteran poker commentator tweeted his opinions following a statement by Phil Galfond regarding the recent high-stakes cheating scandal on PokerGO.

Norman Chad Wants 10-Year WSOP Ban for Poker Cheaters

The reaction to the high number of cheating accusations and bans from major online poker platforms has led to calls for a poker blacklist that excludes such players from entering events in prestigious live festivals.

The World Series of Poker organisers have remained silent on the matter while others are now starting to take action. With the likes of Phil Galfond speaking out, surely it’s only a matter of time before cheaters find themselves unwelcome everywhere.

Ali Imsirovic and Jake Schindler are two of the most hated characters in the game right now. Both are accused of using real-time assistance during play and yet they still showed up in Las Vegas without a hint of shame.

This might actually end up being their downfall. Their profile in the game and success during the series has made them even more visible than usual during the summer and now the pressure to take action is building rapidly.

PokerNews Slammed for Promoting Known Cheaters

Even PokerNews has found itself under fire for promoting known cheaters Ali Imsirovic, Bryn Kenney and Jake Schindler in their 2022 WSOP Main Event coverage.

Twitter posters, including Matt Berkey, were disappointed that the accused appeared in so many tournament write-ups by the media outlet.

Maybe this is unfair, and as mentioned above, the fact that such players can play in major series might end up being the catalyst for their ultimate banning, so it could be a good thing in the end.
