Bet on the NFL Poker News Update for November 12, 2010: Her is the latest from the Partouche Poker Tour.
The WSOP's November Nine wasn't the only final table of last weekend and what's more surprising, it probably didn't have as much drama and excitement as the final table at the Partouche Poker Tour in Cannes, France. Vanessa Selbst took first on the final table earning 1.3 million euros. But the big story was the disqualification of fellow final table member Ali Tekintamgac. Apparently the German poker player secured his Partouche Poker Tour Season 3 final table seat illegally.
It is said that Tekintamgac received signals hinting at what his opponent's were holding. As a result, Tekintamgac's chips were removed from the table and his potential earnings were taken and donated to charity.
