Just days after another popular poker pro was accused of cheating, news broke that Anton Wigg is claiming Mikita Badziakouski of Colluding in the $10K WSOP Circuit Event.

The clip shared by Wigg shows a very short-stacked Mikita Badziakouski 3-bet Polish pro and table chip leader Wiktor Malinowski, leaving less than a small blind behind. 

Malinowski in the cut-off, getting 2.5-1 on the call with a pretty decent but hardly stellar holding, elects to fold. 

This prompted a few cries of ‘wtf’ along the way on Twitter, as well as those claiming ‘standard’ and ‘hand caught in the cookie jar’…

CEO David Cordish, whose firm owns a host of major U.S. entertainment venues including the Maryland Live Casino in Arundel Mills and Power Plant Live in Baltimore, told Bisnow he is preparing to open a sportsbook in D.C.

"We will for sure 100% be operating a major sportsbook in D.C.," Cordish wrote in an email to Bisnow.
