A player made a complaint against online poker room SBG Global Poker for seizing his funds and blocking his account. The player joined SBG, won a freeroll, and proceeded to play the required hands in order to cash-out. Then he won another tourney and amassed a bigger balance. One day, while killing time waiting for a tourney to start, he played heads up at a table with the owner of another poker site on the same network as SBG. The last hand he played on this table, he had 3 Kings and lost to a flush, wiping out approximately $150. At some point, this player also opened an account at PokerHost.com and began to play there. He was then informed that the network was blocking his account and reviewing his play at SBG, claiming he dumped $200 in chips on the heads up table. They subsequently locked his account and seized his funds. The player he was alleged to be chip dumping to, the owner of a poker site, intervened on the accused player’s behalf, and PokerHost eventually released his balance. SBG however, has refused to return the amount this player is owed on their site. PokerRoomReview is currently looking into this matter.
