Once in a while there's a ban from the poker world, which will send some shock waves through the community. One of those came yesterday as Scott Ricotta aka “ICANTSNG” posted a thread on the popular poker forum twoplustwo, where he told the world he was being banned from the site, due to allegations of him multi-accounting on “ICANTSNG” and “WhySoMadFor” accounts.
In the first post, Ricotta posts the conversations between him and Pokerstars, where Ricotta claims that the allegations towards him are completely untrue and that he thinks that Pokerstars are using the powers they have as the biggest poker site in the world to make fake allegations and ban his account.
The thread quickly escalated however, as people started coming out and shared their experience with Ricotta, claiming that he had blackmailed them in the past, did ghosting as well other bad things which is not something well seen in the poker community.
Later on in the thread, the owner of the “WhySoMadFor” joins the discussion, claiming she is a French native woman who was scammed by Ricotta. She was not only backing Ricotta, but also letting him play from her account, where he didn't follow the staking rules and told her to never tell anyone about him using the accounts, otherwise she would never see the money.
Should you feel like reading the thread, which currently has 24 pages, then you can take a look right here. One thing is very certain, nobody in the high stakes sit and go community feels for Ricotta or seems to like him very much.
