A poker player who claimed she was owed $1.2 mil from the world's largest online poker room, PokerStars.com, has withdrawn her complaint this week in an Isle of Man court. The Isle of Man is where PokerStars maintains its license, though it operates in various jurisdictions including the online gambling super power of Costa Rica.

Natalie Teltscher was accused by the poker room of letting someone else use her account for the entirety of the 2007 World Championship of Online Poker, which was deemed a company violation.

Earlier this summer Natalie filed a case against PokerStars claiming that she had played the account, but eventually, when faced with the results of the PokerStars investigation, she admitted she hadn't played.

Ms. Telscher is the sister of poker pro Mark Teltscher who has amassed $2,600,000 in winnings over his professional poker career.
