Indeed what a joke. How on earth can they do that? He must of been able to deposit or something in the first place to play in the event. If he was playing from his dads account, then so what if he said "just won blahblah $$$$" He could take the tone of his dad won it so whats his dads is his sort of thing.
If indeed it is his own account then this is wrong on every level, they will of known his age and so on to start with and if someone was transferring him funds it's their fault for not flagging it up on their system. He shouldn't of been able to join real money
games, how disgusting of poker stars.
As for the money, I assume it will be distributed to among the money finishes.
Where is this news item by the way? I can't see it.
EDIT: Just noticed it was zeurr who got elimited in 6th, wasn't he the one making all the fuss and wanting 650k ? lol He kind of brought attention himself on that final table and likely a gobby teenager who coulden't keep his gob shut so inevitably dropped himself in it. Silly boy.
It still disgusting though if it was his account and they now decided after he has played with real money before to now stop him taking home the money.
EDIT two: Just seen and read some more posts and does seem like his own fault now, silly idiot. The thing is, even if it was from his dads account and they had a little idea he the 17 year old was playing they might of probs kept hush about it, but the fact he has been blabbing his mouth about it they had no choice but to forfeit his winnings so they don't end up getting sued or something themselves.
Christ what an idiotic stupid boy. His father should of been monitoring him during the end, surely he knew about it but I guess he was creaming in his pants at the same time and got too excited about the whole thing and let his kid start ranting about it all.
Sigh to them both, they must be stupid or just so over whelmed at the money they couldn't help it.
