Former PokerStars Boss Isai Scheinberg Crushes The Competition All Over Again

Former PokerStars boss wins UKIPT Isle of Man High Roller.

As if he didn’t already have all the money poker has to offer, the founder and former owner of online beast PokerStars went ahead and scooped a little more by winning the UKIPT Isle of Man High Roller Tournament this weekend.

That’s right, Isai Scheinberg, still currently wanted by the US Dept. of Justice, actually played a little poker this weekend and ended up taking down the biggest event on the Isle of Man schedule, the £2000+£200 High Roller.

While it’s not the high-rollingest of high rollers and, according to The Hendon Mob, there were only 15 total runners, having the well-liked mastermind behind the world’s biggest online poker site win a PokerStars tournament in front of his former employees is still a pretty cool story.

For his efforts Isai pocketed some loose change in the form of £13,850 ($22,253) to go along with the nearly $5Billion dollars that Amaya recent paid for PokerStars.
