Teltscher withdraws claim against PokerStars

Justice scales

Natalie Teltscher will not be seeing any of the $1.2 million-plus that was won on her PokerStars account in the 2007 World Championship of Online Poker last fall.

Today PokerStars announced that Natalie, who is the sister of well-known pro poker player Mark Teltscher, has withdrawn her claim in the Isle of Man's court against PokerStars over the WCOOP main event scandal.

Natalie, who owned the account TheV0id, was rumored to have let someone else play her account for the entirety of the WCOOP main event and because that breached tournament rules, PokerStars opted to disqualify her and let the remaining top finishers move up one place in the money.

Earlier this summer Natalie filed a case against PokerStars claiming that she had played the account, but eventually, when faced with the results of the PokerStars investigation, she admitted she hadn't played.

PokerStars is the largest poker site in the world and is also considered to be one of the most secure. The 2008 WCOOP is looming and the prize pools are almost guaranteed to be some of the biggest ever offered online.
