Poker great and World Series of Poker champ Russ Hamilton is the focus of a online gambling scandal within the jurisdiction of the Kahnawake Gaming Commission following an audit that uncovered big losses involving Absolute Poker and UltimateBet.com. The estimated losses are in the millions, according to multiple online sources.
