Bill Perkins dropped a bombshell on the poker community without releasing details. The high-stakes player teased on Twitter a potential major poker cheating scandal that he has knowledge of. But he’s leaving the public hanging, for now.
This is a developing story. When more details are available, we’ll let you know. For now, all we have on this story is a pair of tweets from the Thirst Lounge founder. Perkins first fired off a confusing tweet on Saturday evening, suggesting he has details on a major scandal.
Cheating scandal in poker going on that would make the Mike Postle scandal look like a church service. Really hard to wrap my head around. I'm very disappointed in many people. Some you would call poker heroes. 1 person/pro showed integrity others failed miserably #POKER

Mike Postle is currently facing a $10 million lawsuit for allegedly cheating his opponents out of hundreds of thousands of dollars during numerous Stones Live streams from 2018-2019. If what Perkins said is accurate, the new scandal will put that alleged incident to shame.
Poker fans on Twitter immediately began speculating on who is involved in the new supposed poker cheating scandal. We don’t know specifically who Perkins is accusing of cheating, but we know it isn’t Jason Koon.
“I have been permission to say that @JasonKoon was the pro who was tempted and acted in integrity. I’ve always liked Jason and now I love him. So you can stop speculating about him. I’m still in investigative mode and not ready to discuss. As I said hard to wrap my head around,” Bill Perkins wrote in a follow-up tweet.
We’ll keep you updated with all the details when they become available.
