Doyle has 700 million dollars?

I wonder if he's good at poker or if he's just running good....

He doesn't, it was a pump and dump. The SEC is just trying to find out which of Doyle's friends acquired a few million shares of WPT stock right before the news came out.

Doyle's sample size is too small. He has only been playing for like 50+ years. In order to be statistically correct he would have to play for 178 years, 7 months, 13 days, 4 hours, and seven minutes. It's too early to tell if Doyle is truely a winning player in the long run. He truely might just be a bad player on a winning streak.

Yeah, especially since he primarily plays B&M and we all know that you only get about 35 hands an hour there. I think Gigabet may be the world's only proven winner since he's been 8 tabling for years. [img]/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Is it illegal to do such a thing ? I mean how would they prove this ... Seems like it would be just 100% circumstancial evidence without any witnesses.

They never proved Martha did anything like this. They nailed her on a bogus "lying to a federal investigator" charge because they couldn't make the insder trading charges stick.

I know, just responding to the poster who asked if insider trading was illegal.

okay, I change my comment to "just ask Samuel Waksal" (the guy who pled guilty to insider trading charges in the Stewart case).
