Melanie Weisner and Dylan Wilkerson accused of collusion
Here is an excerpt from Bill Grinstead's article: British poker pro Jack Salter has accused fellow pros Melanie Callisto 5 Weisner (pictured) and Dylan Wilkerson of collusion and soft-playing each other during sit and gos at the World Series of Poker. Through his Twitter account, Salter told his 2,400 followers that he was sure that the pair were "working together as a team in the WSOP
SNGs" and urged others to re-Tweet the posts "for awareness."
He also posted a hand which he found suspicious and added that "several regs already suspected them of soft play before this happened and some have come out to say they were doing the same thing last summer."
Weisner hit back by admitting that she and Wilkerson swapped 20% of their action, but noted that Salter and other pros regularly do the same. She also said that the hand in question was not accurately recalled by Salter.
Wilkerson posted his own rebuttal which included a different version of the hand in question. He added, "Jack gave me relentless sh*t for this at the time, but has since changed his mind and claimed he would play it the same." He added that Salter had incorrectly depicted the stack sizes, but even so, the British pro still found the hand to be suspicious.
I thought Nevada Gaming has proposed and anti staking bill for these types of reasons. I wonder if these reported allegations will push the anti staking bill through.
I think with this and the TDA, tourney poker is becoming too much trouble. M
