Coming Sunday: The Poker Cheats
In the past decade, online poker has grown into a lucrative industry, with millions of players placing billions of dollars worth of bets every year. The money flows to Web sites with often-murky ownership, based outside the United States in places without gambling laws. On Sunday, The Washington Post will publish an investigation of online poker and an inside account of the two largest cases of cheating in the industry's short history.
The report by Post investigative reporter Gilbert M. Gaul, in conjunction with CBS' 60 Minutes, will also include online extras: A reconstruction of how cheaters gamed the system to get an inside peek at other players' cards. A live discussion with Gaul and prominent online poker player Serge Ravitch. And a reporter's notebook from Gaul about how he investigated online poker.
See you back here on Sunday.
