      If it's on stars, they just give you cash, so I don't think it would change anything (you don't have to use the 10k for the entry), dunno about other sites though

      A Swedish 20 year old player used a fake ID a couple of years ago. He placed quite deep into the money so he had to go through a deeper ID check and all of the winnings were frozen. He was at home in Sweden when everything was done so apart from not being able to collect his winnings he is also wanted for counterfeiting documents so he can't go to the states in 10 years, if he does he will be arrested :rolleyes: .

      A 12000$ fine for doing something that isn't very uncommon and hurtful to anybody is a bit severe, don't you think.

      That is not his greatest punishment. He is one of Swedens best tournament and cash-game players and he is not able to play any tournaments in the states for ten years. He would be quite capable of collecting a couple of bracelets if they would only let him. I think he is regretting his desition now and if he knew how much trouble this would cause him he would probably never have done it. The buy-in is not his greatest loss here (about two weeks winnings at the cashtables at his normal winrate).

      And I think that his actions are only his own fault but hey, if you never did anything when you were young that you should't have raise your hand and keep it up. Don't think anyone will have shoulderpains after that :rolleyes:

      I was never asked in any casino for my ID card. So if you don't win too much and/or look like a baby, they don't seem to care.

      #2, however i was always afraid to play a higher stake for fear of not being able to cash out
