Did she cheat?  That's the question everyone is asking in regard to a shock scandal rocking the poker world involving a vibrating device and apparent novice player.


Inside Edition has gone as far as to call it "the biggest scandal in the game's history".  Not sure we'd go that far but it's certainly the only thing folks are talking about right now in the poker world.

Rookie professional poker player Robbie Jade Lew won a $269,000 pot allegedly using the pocket vibrator in question. The win surprised many fans watching a Hustler Casino livestream of the tournament. The result also stunned Lew’s opponent, former "Survivor" contestant Garrett Adelstein, who is now accusing Lew of cheating.  She apparently paid him back in a "dark hallway" but felt threatened.  All this is transpiring as the game organizers and Hustler Casino are conducting their own probe.

Everyone seems to have their own opinion on whether there was cheating involved. 

Even Phil Ivey has chimed in on the matter.  Ivey's been embroiled in some high profile scandals of his own involving card counting. 

He backs Lew's claim that she misread her own hand but admits he 'could be wrong'.

And it wouldn't be a controversy if outspoken poker pro Mike "The Mouth" Matusow wasn't offering up his (and his followers) opinion(s).  One of his followers called into Mike's podcast.

Our own Thomas Somach has reached out to both parties involved but is yet to hear back.
