    Druff,

    You are not on your game, did PokerStars refund the other players in the tournament, move everyone up a pay spot?

    That’s not their money!

    great stuff as always from HH.

    those forgeries are pretty LOL, but I spotted something on one of them that seemed familiar. Shady, even. Could it be?

    I'd be embarrassed if I represented Poker Stars and I didn't notice the fraud right away. Shouldn't really run up a big bill on this one.

    I heard they moved everyone up a spot, but I'm not sure.

    The Pokerstars attorney claimed he wasn't looking at it from the standpoint as possibly being a forgery, and instead he was focusing upon what those documents proved or didn't prove.

    Haley posted this excerpt from the Pokerstars lawyer:




    I agree with you that, regardless of his focus, the lawyer should have first sought to authenticate those documents, given that they were supposedly Vayo's essential piece of evidence proving his location.

    BTW, I find it very interesting that Vayo's new laywer refused to submit those documents to evidence, but rather just sent them to Pokerstars. It's possible that Vayo's new attorney knew the documents were forgeries, and didn't want to go as far as submitting false evidence to the court. If that's true, and he knowingly submitted false documents to Pokerstars, that's a pretty big risk for an attorney to be taking, even if it wasn't submitted officially to the court.

    Vayo curiously did not timely respond to the Pokerstars Motion For Attorneys Fees. So either they're trying to settle this without the Court deciding or Vayo has no response.
    Will be interesting to see what happens.
