Dennis Blieden, who won $1 million from his first serious live entry at the World Poker Tour LA Poker Classic, stole the money from StyleHaul, a former employer during his stint as VP of Accounting and Finance.

From GamblingNews.com:

According to the prosecutors and the cited evidence, Blieden had spent four years siphoning off funds from his company into personal accounts and used the proceedings to gamble. The fraud took place between October 2015 and March 2019.

Blieden is facing 11 counts of wire fraud, identity theft and forfeiture counts.
