Druff, try to get in touch with Booth and see if he will spill his 'new found' dirt on UB.

call Yukon out on his word "I cant be silenced for $ 5 million 3:20 in
if Brad did get a recent 6 figure payment, it would most likely come from deep pockets, with a current business that would have a lot to lose, if Booth has the goods, that person just might be............................. Greg Pierson %#^&%&*, this is only an estimation, just guessing, I have no evidence, Phil Hellmuth may have had a hand in it as a go between but he is a piker and wouldn't even part with a wood nickle if he didn't have to
guy is a lunatic
and also, why should he be treated any differently than anyone else who got rolled by a poker site ? I'm a fan, but boo hoo, cry me a fucking river. he is never getting any of his money back, and making that video is just pathetic. time to move on with your life and quit crying ffs
Russ Hamilton put the beatdown so bad on Brad he can't even afford a webcam.
I haven't kept up on the recent Brad Booth situation.
Did he threaten to reveal new info and then go silent?
At the big meeting they where deciding who UB had to refund at what percentage they stole and who they could screw and get away with it. So besides Yukon the one that got it worse and didn't get a one cent refund was Ben Affleck because they knew he couldn't afford to taint his public image because its worth a hell of a lot more than $2 million or whatever the real # Ben lost, another nut job that took a big hit was Prahlad an y'all know the rest of that story. They must of had some really good dirt on Matusow to keep his mouth relatively shut
You gotta hand it to the UB execs they must have ordered psychological profiles on their big victims because they were pretty much right on their assessments, one guy a 2+2 poster with a big mouth got paid to shut up and we know about the financial threat to Nat Arem & that they got Haley Hinze fired but she was going to go after them no matter what anyways, Tom Scott even had his Attorney send poor MOOKMAN a letter scaring the bejeesus out of Mike,
idk if they tried to mess with Todd or not, maybe Druff will do an all star radio show about UB again instead of a bizzillion word blog, Druff does get huge props for helping bust the scandal starting with AP

Todd's not easy to fuck with, though. You can't get him fired, you can't really blackmail him to shut up, and the harder you push against him, the more entrenched he becomes and the more he fights back. As easy a target as Brad is, Todd seems like the absolute opposite.
Nobody from UB ever contacted or threatened me.
Who would have paid Brad, though? Isn't Cereus broke? And didn't this happen within the past year?
Do you think Hellmuth paid him off?
I may have heard it on DD radio, not sure, but one of the funnier things that Brad said about his whole UB fiasco was that Phil Hellmuth bet him something like 25k that Brad would get a 6 figure refund within 30 days, knowing already that the refund was coming and also knowing brad would look at this like a freeroll because if he wins the bet he gets 25k and even if he loses the bet he will have gotten a 6 figure refund.
Class act that poker brat
this was over in the 2+2 thread that i have say i have second hand knowledge of this to be correct. i have friends who play homegames with brad and they have all said this from time to time, for what its worth.
I have a hard time being 100% on Booth's side. Its awful what happened and he was a clear victim in that situation. However, most people dont know how shady booth was towards others before/during his awareness of Ub victimization. Booth victimized and conned lots of people in vancouver. took/borrowed lots of money based on lies. So the holier than thou attitude is bs.
He created a reputation and exploited it to younger poker players, borrowed money from them under the guise of paying back right away, then didnt payback. he implied he had money to pay back, thats why loans were given to him.
going golfing, he would make wagers with people and if he lost, he would say he doesnt have the money and not pay. but if he won, he collects, totally free rolling people. he asks people to send him online cash, then doesnt repay. he asks a kid who just binked some money in tourny to borrow money for wsop and will return it, he doesnt. public doesnt know how shady he has acted over the years within the private poker games in vancouver. he convinces the house to stake him, he plays in the games, juices up the pot to create higher rake for the house. he's on heavy credit, gets the house stuck a lot of money. lies to house about potential future revenues from casino deals etc so that they keep staking him.
he was victimized, but he also victimized lots of people on his way down.
sure he's a nice guy but has skeletons as well.
he admits to owing lots of money, but has never detailed how he got into owing so much money to many individuals. most of whom he lied and conned. they wouldnt have lent him the money if they knew he was broke. he freerolled a lot of people. and some of those guys have no recourse but to just wait and hope he pays back.
they dont go on poker forums and make immature empty threats to hellmuth acting holier than thou. poker community in vancouver doesnt trust him anymore and he's not welcomed to play in games unless he brings cash. has zero credit with people.
he created his own mess. hope he makes a comeback so that others can get repaid.
I have no knowledge if that story is true, but if I had to guess, I'd say it's probably 100% accurate.
Sounds like, while being cheated (and not realizing it), he might have cheated others in order to stay in action.
Reminds me of a conversation I had with my mom as a 5-year-old.
We passed a hitchhiker on the road, and I asked her why the guy had his thumb up.
She explained what a hitchhiker was, and then said it was very dangerous to pick one up, because he could be a bad man with a gun.
She then went on to explain that you also shouldn't BE a hitchhiker, because you might get picked up by a bad man with a gun.
I thought for a second and asked, "So what if a bad hitchhiker is picked up by a bad driver?"
She didn't know how to answer that one.
Bottom line: Scam and cheat victims are sometimes scammers and cheats themselves.
A "Yukon Brad" signed onto the site, and PM'd me.
I encouraged him to post here.
The account isn't verified, but I'm guessing it's really him, as a dupe would have already come out and grandstanded publicly.
There is zero chance PH didn't have any information Re: inner workings of UB. He plays the part of the blind monkey well. I'm so hoping Brad has SOMETHING on PH.
baffling that Danny N went after Annie and everyone else involved at UB, for which he deserves big props but never criticized his buddy Phil for repeating corporate lies
this is the company Greg Peirson launched with stolen UB $ that PH has a big investment in
So you don't have to go to that site.
Poker Player Brad Booth stole ~$28,000 from Me
I recently had the misfortune of coming across brad booth via one of my friends. He was playing in some of the higher stakes games at the wynn, and Brad told him that he was looking to get back into playing online. At the time he had something like $50,000 on him, as a rough estimate that I was given by my friend. My friend had been hanging out with him a bit outside of poker and they had gotten dinner several times. I was relayed the information that Brad Booth was looking for a transfer for lock poker. I asked him if he thought it was safe to transfer. He told me that he wasnt really sure, but that Brad did have a lot of money on him so it seemed like it would be ok. With this information I sent Brad $13,000 online for what was presumably $13,000 cash. He wanted more, but i declined as i was looking to limit my risk.
Brad then gave my friend an envelope with $13,000 cash, which was given to me. Then Brad asked if he could get a bigger transfer. It seemed to me like it was safer, with the first transfer being successful. At this point he asked for ~$30,000, which I sent him online. Several days later, when we were trying to reach an agreement on when to meet up and transfer, he told me the unfortunate news via text message. The messages are long and rambly, but we eventually agreed to meet up and discuss things. When we met up, he told me the unsettling news of many of his other debts, how little money he has, and the inside scoop on many additional things. I told him if he continues to work with me and stay in contact, and make some small payments at a time, that we can work things out. He agreed, and a week later made me a payment of $2,200. However since then, he has left the country, changed his phone number, and has started completely ignoring me.
Im not really looking for sympathy, its a ****ty situation and I wish things hadnt gone this direction. I am very unfamiliar with the live poker arena, and i have now been informed this is somewhat standard for Brad. I guess i made a mistake in trusting someone because i had seen them play in "high stakes" poker and had heard he had money on him.
I know of many of Brads Debts, and i have some other information about him as well. I also have our complete text message log. Unless Brad finds a way to get into contact with me I will be releasing this information. I feel like this should have happened a long time ago, but many people worried about not seeing payment havent come out and outed him. Im not going to take this approach. Brad is a scammer and a thief, and if this had happened earlier perhaps it would of saved me $27,800, so hopefully if this saves someone else some money, then its worth it.
Brad Booth was seen playing online ~2 weeks later at 10/20 plo on stars. I can only imagine something similar had happened in that scenario. He was also playing with me in some of the las vegas games with money that he had on a stake, while he owed me the money. Any information that can be offered as to the whereabouts or contact information that results in me seeing additional money back will not go unrewarded.
I want my money Brad, and im not going to just stay quiet until i am paid or the world knows what a scumbag you truly are.
Of all the money e'er I had, I spent it in good company
