    Men the Master Nguyen involved in another live poker cheating controversy

    Men "the Master" Nguyen has been in a ton of controversies over the years, all involving allegations of live poker cheating.

    In LA he was repeatedly accused of having horses in tournaments who would intentionally dump chips to him.

    Today there was a controversy regarding Men the Master at the WSOP, and once again he looks damn shady.

    Here's the video of the incident. The second video clearly shows Men pulling back his chips which were in the pot all in, after losing:

    Oddly, the floor didn't stop the clock, and made the player "Smitty" keep playing with his shorted stack. They finally decided to give him two 1m (million) chips -- one from Men and one from a guy who fully paid correctly in the first place.

    Nothing apparently happened to Men for this.

    They need to just ban him.

    It's from Nicky Palma, so take it with a grain of salt. I don't think Nicky is making it up, but I also can't be sure he has the details right. Wouldn't be surprised if this were true, though.

    Damn, that is shady and atrocious. Two of the guys get screwed over, plus is the dealer asleep? Are the other players brain dead? And part of me thinks the Smitty guy is being a tool with over-celebrating his J5 win. Part of me thinks he almost deserves the chip loss for turning his back on a known cheat.

    A lot of bad dealing at WSOP this year...

    As much as I dislike Men the Master this seems like more of a dealer error. Why wasn't the main pot of 15m correctly created before a single card was dealt? And why wasn't the player paying enough attention to object?

    Player was too excited that his J5 got called by two stacks all in, and he won the hand. (Fortunately he was against two AKs!)

    The dealer just wasn't paying attention.

    Almost 100% this was intentional on Men's part, given his history. If this occurred with a player with a longtime clean rep, I might give them the benefit of the doubt.

    ok so I feel for the dude that got shorted, and I am not putting this on him as this was pretty clearly a malicious case of cheating imo, and men is known for this shit, for years......but why the fuck would you not sit down and make sure your chips are right before you celebrate? I get it, it is a big spot for the dude but holy shit, he just cost himself however much equity because he couldn't pay the fuck attention?

    again obviously not cool and not condoning men at all but as an MTT player being in one of the biggest spots in your life at the end of the day you have that responsibility to ensure that the pot is right
