    So Seth Yates ran 3 SB pools on twitter. Took 3 K from all different people via PayPal and Venmo and never paid out the winners. He hasn’t tweeted since Super Bowl Sunday but has been active on RG as early as yesterday. I wasn’t a victim but he just screwed 3 K from members of the DFS community and maybe some people in this very forum. He was an Active poster on RG and also wrote a few columns in the past. Anyone hear anything? The guy use to tweet everyday all day and now nothing. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

    I work in the same place Seth does and can tell you that next to nobody here was not working during the most recent shutdown. Almost all of the work done here falls under DOD which is fully funded for the year.

    Wait so have you seen him in the last week or so?

    I am certainly not suing anyone over a thousand dollars. I’ll consider twitter and this thread as great value for my hundred dollars. I am however sad twitter has slowed down. Was really rolling yesterday.

    This place employs ~25k people. I’ve never met him, but can confirm that the type of work he does/did was not effected by the most recent gov’t shutdown.

    I don’t know Seth (other than following him on Twitter) and I’m just catching up on what happened with his Squares pool, but I think it’s worth noting that Squares are still technically illegal:

    https://www.forbes.com/sites/marcedelman/2019/01/31/super-bowl-squares-pools-are-legally-risky-even-after-the-fall-of-paspa/

    and people do get busted for this kind of thing, particularly when it reaches a certain level of exposure (Seth has over 13,000 Twitter followers):

    https://www.nj.com/sports/index.ssf/2015/03/the_800000_office_pool_how_a_teacher_got_busted_an.html

    Isn’t it possible that the money has all been seized anyway, and Seth currently has no access to Twitter (or at least can’t access it without leaving more evidence / further committing a crime)?

    I was someone in the pool the nj.com article referenced. Within a few days of him being arrested, he emailed everyone in the pool saying he was arrested. This was also $800K and he made it seem in the final year, he was taking 10% or you would not be allowed to participate in future pools (I.e., charged a rake).

    Even if Seth had been arrested and had the pool money confiscated (highly doubtful), he’d have been able to make a statement now stating what happened.

    Wasn’t someone saying he was a losing player anyways………..so a ban would probably help him.

    Ah but lets be honest, we’re all losing players really aren’t we?

    Couple hookers couple 8 balls by by 3k

    It’s too bad you weren’t all invited to his $3K SuperBowl party.

  • Southie777

    It’s really a shame that the Super Bowl isn’t played with undrafted free agents and 7th round picks, he’d have hit on all his bets and all you guys would’ve gotten paid and maybe even a little bonus on top!

    I was talking about what someone said about him but yes……I don’t win….but I am glad that I realized that a couple years back and pretty much stopped. I toss peanuts at fantasy draft and yahoo golf but nothing else anymore.

    Was he one of the 20-25 witnesses that saw TheSeige bet Duke in-game at 30:1?

    Underrated post.

    Good thread. Hopefully someone kicks this guy’s teeth in. There’s no worse human being than one who collects people’s money in good faith and steals it. Even though there’s no way it’s true, even if it was this whole rehab thing, there’s no excuse. Unless he’s dead or on his deathbed he should’ve paid the money out in a timely manner.

    Yates responsible the rain at Riviera as well?? Food for thought.

    Con Artist in Ohio, rain in California. Don’t see the connection unless he entered the Cliffside Rehab center in Malibu

  • Southie777

    What is the background on the DKWheels story I’ve seen mentioned a few times? Just curious.
