Rob Yong managed to get himself swept up in the fall-out between Leon Tsoukernik (owner of Kings Casino) and Australian high stakes poker pro Matt Kirk after a high stakes cash game at the Aria ended with Tsoukernik owing Kirk $3 million USD.
Apparently, the debt comes from a late night high stakes heads-up cash game between the pair — with Tsourkernik (who was drunk) allegedly funding his game with repeated loans from Kirk.
Yong has taken his blog to set the record straight in his involvement in the matter.

As a reminder, earlier in the year, all hell broke loose on the 2+2 forum when images of legal paperwork showing Australian high stakes pro Matthew Kirk is suing Leon Tsoukernik over an unpaid debt to of $2 million appeared.
The papers show high profile Las Vegas attorneys David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld acting on behalf of Aussie Matt in a bid to get the debt paid.
