Mike McDonald Says 2021 Was the Year With the Most Giant Poker Scams

Mike McDonald has tweeted his thanks to those in the poker community who have resisted the urge to scam people, even when their backs are to the wall. Timex is shocked by the recent reporting of scam stories involving people with previously flawless reputations. Check out the list of the biggest poker scams of 2021 below!

Mike McDonald Shouts Out to Those Who Resist the Urge to Scam

It’s been a tough year for live poker professionals, particularly those based in the US with limited online options. For this reason, with a steady supply of scam stories coming from that sector we should reasonably expect this number to rise.

There are a lot of broke live players around right now and desperation might be kicking in.

Mike McDonald does add:

“For every selfish person out there who rugs our community- there are probably 20 more with their back against the wall who chose to take their losses on the chin.”

And also cheekily points out that anyone who lost a house on the click of a mouse can at least applaud themselves for having integrity.

Dan Colman calls out Sean Perry as DFS scammer

High-stakes tournament player Dan Colman recently went public with accusations of Sean Perry scamming him for seven figures.


The story was that Perry allegedly controlled multiple accounts on a daily fantasy sports website without disclosing the fact. He then encouraged Sam Soverel to find additional action for him which Colman was more than happy to give.

Many in the poker community thought this was such an outrageous manoeuvre that it was on the same level as the Mike Postle story.
