    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. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

    The most fun part of this thread is trying to identify the Seth Yates burner accounts —- I’ll set the O/U at 3….

    Unfortunately, desperate people will do things like this. It doesn’t make those out the money feel any better but look at the bright side. How much money are you really out? For those who are expected a pay day sorry but again be thankful you’re not out $3,000.

    Why in the world would anyone post “I call BS” when all you’re doing is saying that you’re a person willing to trade the possibility of complete devastation for another human being in exchange for a tiny, tiny bit of self-satisfaction in your own head?

    Nobody knows what happened, and posting “This is BS” can only lead to a bad outcome.

    Posting that he got nabbed by the FBI for running $10 super bowl squares without taking a cut and can’t speak for fear of incriminating everyone is a lot more asinine than anyone calling bullshit.

  • Touchole

    This is really too bad.

    I thought very highly of Seth.

    I can see this thread getting closed any minute.

    An alcoholic, lying degenerate gambler scammed the DFS community? This just can’t be true, our industry is too pristine for this!

  • bigez952

    Maybe at this rehab he is at DFS is a critical part of the recovery process. So everyone is playing but just don’t have access to any other social media lol.

    Or his “friend” when he stumbled across RG and all the great content decided to jump in and get some action under Seth’s account to pay back everyone the $3,000 himself after he wins.

    It is only February 13th but this should qualify as the thread of the year with how entertaining it is to follow.

    Hold your horses everyone.

    Let’s see what Mr. Moral Police Officer Squirrelpatrol has to say about this.

    “The copious amounts of baseless accusations and dangerous speculation in the RG forums were too much for Seth to handle. He had no other option but to break out of rehab and relapse into his self-destructive behavior by entering a $1 DK NBA tournament instead of paying back the money that was owed. Hope the internet pitchfork mob is happy now, as it was your actions that pushed him over the edge. Shame on the members of the DFS community that didn’t blindly give Seth the benefit of the doubt after his friend took the time to address us all.”

    His last day contributing for us was 8/31/17.

    He’s not even a contractor anymore.

  • Messiah717

    Seriously though. He entered DK contests and then posted her pretending to be his friend? Dude just come clean.

    Thanks for providing that info. I think and hope the majority of people on here realize this is NOT a RG issue. Rather, it is an individual issue and that individual’s name is Seth. Oh yeah, his friend too.

    What’s the money line on this?

  • realphipps

    I’m running a squares game for Friday’s Price is Right. Broadcast at 11am est.

    Squares are only $25 a piece. Cash only. DM me on here for my PO Box address.

    Winners announced in the not-so-distant future via the twitter account I plan on making this summer.

  • flip4flop

    I appreciate RG leaving this thread open despite a frequent contributor for here being proven wrong. Good call on RG’s part on this one.

    I agree this looks terrible for Seth. I also stand by my post that if you’re right about him lying, you’re going to get the satisfaction of being right on a near-anonymous message board, and absolutely nothing else. That wasn’t worth the trade-off if you were wrong.

    Are you for real? .. “IF” he’s lying? …Good grief, man.

    “..you’re going to get the satisfaction of being right on a near-anonymous message board, and absolutely nothing else.”

    Riiiiight…“Liars and thieves should be left alone; there’s nothing to be gained by calling them out other than self-satisfaction…”

    A worse take, I can’t recall…

    Do you think it’s good or bad that wrongdoing was exposed by members of the DFS community? I’m trying to understand your worldview that people who try to be anonymously helpful are just self-serving.
