Just when you thought it was safe to go back on the highstakes online tables, alleged poker cheat Bryn Kenney has re-appeared on GGPoker, making it to the final table of the SuperMillion$ this week… Kenney was at the centre of a massive cheating storm earlier this year when he was accused of everything from ghosting and collusion to abusing his “horses”, with the bizarre use of shamans and frog poison thrown into the mix for good measure.

Incredibly, Kenney’s return to the GGPoker arena comes just weeks after the site introduced the launch of the Poker Integrity Council (PIC), with Jason Koon named […]
