The ongoing high-stakes cheating scandal hasn’t put off the accused from showing their face at the 2022 World Series of Poker. Bryn Kenney, Ali Imsirovic, and Jake Schindler all arrived to take their seats in Event #2: $100,000 High Roller Bounty amid the controversy.
Serious AccusationsExcept for Bryn Kenney’s “soft” interview with PokerNews, the trio has remained out of sight since the serious accusations broke. Chatter on social media left us all wondering if they would dare to show their faces in Las Vegas but in typical poker style, they showed no shame and arrived in Sin City as they usually would.
As of yet, the WSOP organisers have yet to comment on the possibility of a cheaters blacklist. This is one of the hot topics currently being discussed in the poker community and an idea that partypoker has taken up for its MILLIONS Live festival in Barcelona.
The proposal now needs some momentum and other major series organisers to get on board for a universal agreement to come into place.

Doug Polk Fires Shots at Ali ImsirovicAlthough Ali Imsirovic hasn’t made any public comment on the cheating allegations laid at his doorstep, he did recently tweet that he would be donating 50% of his winnings from events with buy-ins of $25k and less to a childrens charity.
Doug Polk wasn’t impressed, however, making his feelings clear in the tweet below.
