    This guy, Mark Telstcher (a.k.a TheVOid) won the WSOOP on PokerStars not too long ago. First prize, $1.3 MILLION, and now it's GONE because he was found to have cheated!!

    In a release posted today at PocketFives.com PokerStars has announced they have concluded their investigation and TheV0id (Mark Telstcher) has been disqualified.

    The issue of multi-accounting has been a hot issue this year, and caused great concern among online players. Kudos to PokerStars for taking this action.

    It should be noted that PokerStars does not provide the specific reason for disqualification, but again, there was abundant speculation that TheV0id had entered multiple accounts into this tournament.
