Ethan “Rampage” Yau has admitted multi-accounting on ACR Poker. An X account named Paul Risman posted screenshots of Yau’s own tweets showing that he had access to two different ACR Poker accounts.
Rampage Thought He Was Doomswitched
Unusually for a poker player accused of doing wrong, Yau immediately admitted he had tdone wrong, claiming that he thought the original account was “doomswitched” after a poor run of 900 tournaments.
“I created rampagepoker in the early stages. After 900 straight downswing tournaments and thinking my account was doomswitched, I created a new username to test it out. Somehow found infinitely more success with ‘WoodenBat’ but have never played the tournament with both account”
Also unusually for poker players on social media, the majority of posters were satisfied with Yau’s explanation and made it clear that they didn’t think he was cheating in any way. Yau has good standing among his peers and there has never been any untoward allegations levelled at his character.
Phil Nagy tweeted to let everyone know his security team was checking the accounts out and he also let Yau know that he would not be looking to confiscate his funds “just trying to keep things fair.” He added, “Your money is your money”
