How do you get a contract for online poker when your name is soured in the online poker community? Through a sub-contractor, of course. Too bad someone at iovation forget to change a line of code!

Turns out at the very least, potential Ernst & Young Pacific Northwest Entrepreneur of the Year 2013 Greg Pierson participated in the cover up at Ultimate Poker. Is he one of the 5 unnamed co-conspirators 60 Minutes mentioned in their story about Ultimate Bet Cheating and Greg Pierson ?
At any rate, Ultimate Poker has officially dropped iovation, and hopefully others will take notice.
“As of late Thursday night, May 9th, Ultimate Poker discontinued the use of all services from Iovation,” per Two Plus Two
“Iovation is subcontracted through CAMS/Verifi, a third-party service which provides player identification and anti-fraud checks. CAMS is authorized by the Nevada Gaming Commission to provide its services to online poker operators.

This will be a long post, but in this missive you’ll find a good deal of the circumstantial net of evidence pointing to Pierson, and also learn of the virtual Pandora’s Box (and the very sordid key) that almost certainly triggered what would become online poker’s largest cheating scandal.”
