The bill came for good for the cheaters. Pivots of the biggest controversy in recent times (with Bryn Kenney also mentioned), online cheating, players Ali Imsirovic and Jake Schindler are suffering from the post-scandal measures. After the EPT banned their presence at its events, it was PokerGo's turn to follow suit.
The first indication of the banning of these two players was the “disappearance” of their names in the PokerGo Tour rankings. A few days ago, the list was updated and Britain's Stephen Chidwick had taken the lead. However, just behind him was Jake Schindler, in second, and Ali Imsirovic, the current titleholder, was fourth.

However, the names of the two players no longer appear in the dispute. With Chidwick still leading, who appears in second place is Phil Ivey, followed by Michael Duek, in third, and Jason Koon, in fourth. Both Imsirovic and Schindler were removed from the list without further explanation.
The second sign was the start of the Poker Masters. Neither of the two mentioned attended the first event of the series, in a tournament where they would definitely be. Poker Masters also counts points for the PokerGo Tour and is organized by PokerGo, so once again it is clear that the absence is a company determination.
In addition, Daniel Negreanu even commented on his Twitter about the players: "Poker Masters today and I bet we won't see Jake Schindler or Ali Imsirovic playing any of the events...", wrote the Canadian. The “suspect” has been confirmed and now it seems that the “cheaters” are paying the price for their actions.
