Colman accuses Perry of cheating in a million-dollar DFS contest
Perhaps many see poker as a fun game where people with great skills are able to win a lot of money. However, over the last few years, the issue has gone beyond that. Unfortunately, being a game where a lot of money is involved, there are certain people who turn something entertaining into a total cheating controversy. There have been several of these situations so far, but this time it has involved daily fantasy sports (DFS) betting. According to what has been reported, Dan Colman has allegedly been swindled by fellow poker pro, Sean Perry, and we’re not talking about just a little money, but a total of seven figures at the time the two had a DFS betting agreement.
Although Sam Soverel was also a participant in these bets, the evidence points to Perry being solely responsible for the criminal action. Colman, who has been a player well known for occupying a leading position in Hendon Mob’s all-time money list, has taken to his official Twitter account to make the respective accusation against Perry, calling him a “swindler” through a long statement and detailing everything that happened during that event. After several moves in the DFS competition, Colman began to notice that something wasn’t adding up and noticed that three of the accounts were set up their lineups strangely, leading him to believe that something suspicious was going on.
DFS experts Aaron Jones and Ryan Daut arrived to help confirm these suspicions through extensive analysis. Based on the results, the two verified the suspicions and noted that Colman had been duped and that the one in control of the three accounts was precisely Perry. Not that Colman was able to confirm this, but he compared Perry’s action to what Mike Postle had done a few years ago. Many comments were expressed after Colman’s publication, some supporting Perry and others saying they are sure he is a fraudster.
