January 31, 2015 Jordan Greene Poker World

According to reports, Woods was recently sentenced to fifteen months in prison for charges of fraud related to his play on several online poker sites. Woods, a player from the UK best known for his 2010 WSOP bracelet win, is also required to pay £1 million in restitution within six months or have his prison time increased by an additional six years.

Woods was accused of opening several online poker accounts using other people’s identities. He then set up a computer network which made it appear that the different users (which were really just him) were playing from different locations. He then sat multiple accounts at tables to essentially collude with himself. His activities took place between 2007 and 2012.
