  • Cheating allegations were over a game featuring Robbi Jade Lew and Garrett Adelstein
  • Cyber investigators conclude no evidence to suggest any form of cheating

One of the huge talking points in the global poker community in 2022 were the alleged cheating allegations that surfaced over a poker game that involved Robbi Jade Lew and Garrett Adelstein at a live US poker event hosted by Hustler Casino Live.

Robbi Jade Lew Reputation Tarnished Over Allegations

The allegations came to light after Robbi Jade Lew was accused of cheating an all in hand on Sep 29 against Garrett Adelstein that enabled her to win a big pot of $269,000. The hand in question received a lot of attention in the poker media after Adelstein was convinced that Robbi Jade Lew used underhand tactics to get the better of him.

Robbi Jade Lew denied those allegations and claimed she was innocent. Things got murkier after video surveillance surfaced that a casino employee by the name of Bryan Sagbigsal had stolen $15,000 in chips from Lew during the Sep 29 game. Initially, Lew decided not to press charges against Sagbigsal but would later change her mind and file charges.

The controversial game divided the poker community as some sided with Lew while others backed Adelstein. High Stakes Poker Productions (HSPP) which runs the Hustle Casino live show hired three firms to carry out an investigation. The first firm was legal representatives Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton, the second was The Solution Group that consists of private and legal investigators and the third Bulletproof – a cybersecurity firm that focuses on the gaming industry.


Investigation Shows No Evidence Of Cheating

HSPP has now confirmed that it has received a report from Bulletproof which confirms that the shuffling machine used during the Sep 29 game was secure and not compromised. The firm also says it was highly unlikely that Lew resorted to using a card reading device to intercept card signals before it was sent to the production booth for the event.

The report also confirmed that the radio-frequency identification (RFID) in use and the PokerGFX system used during the game was not compromised and showed no signs of malware or programs that could intercept hands.
