In the midst of a players strike where some high volume players on PokerStars are protesting against announced changes to the company’s VIP Rewards Program, high profile poker professional Dani Stern is encouraging players to take their actions a step farther and “cashout” from the site.
For those wondering about my take on strike thus far: It’s working. Keep going. Believe me this is bigger than total players online. CASHOUT— Dani Stern (@TheRealAnsky) December 02, 2015
Stern, also known as Ansky online is heating up the rhetoric by calling those that cross the pickett line “scabs”.
As I said at the time of the London verdict last October, it is not in my nature to cheat which is why I was so bitterly disappointed by the judge’s decision a year ago, even though he said that I was a truthful witness and that he was sure that I didn’t believe that what I was doing was cheating. This wording from the Court of Appeal, that the grounds of our appeal raise an important question of law and have real prospects of success is quite simply the best news I’ve had since I won the £7.8m at Crockfords over three years ago in August 2012.
