Disgraced Midway Poker Tour owner, Dan Bekavac, resurfaced this past weekend.  He was spotted playing at a live event near Siouz Falls, Iowa.  Bekavac reportedly continues to refuse reimbursement of more than $55,000 to players from a failed Chicago area tournament back in October.

Prior to the tournament getting underway, the director announced that "due to Illinois charity gaming regulations, we can only pay out $1,600 in cash. Anything above that will be given out in precious metals".  It's doubtful that anyone would have participated in the event had they known they'd be paid out in worthless metals.

Poker pro Chad Holloway provided a breakdown of who is still owed and those made whole:

Bekavac later blamed Illinois regulators for not allowing him to evade the state’s gaming regulations, which were designed expressly to protect the public from such occurrences, according to Haley Hintze of PokerTube.
