Chris 'BluffMagCV' Vaughn and Sorel 'Imper1um' Mizzi Admit to Account Selling

Sorel Mizzi busted by Full Tilt PokerPoker News landed an exclusive interview with Chris Vaughn and Sorel Mizzi (at right) where the two come clean about their joint victory in the Full Tilt $1M Guaranteed tournament, a victory FTP has since taken away and awarded to second place finisher Soren Kongsgaard.

In Part I of the interview, Vaughn describes how his FTP account began freezing up when there was around 24 players remaining in the tournament. He was on instant messenger with Mizzi, and asked him to log in to his account while Vaughn, a Bluff Magazine employee, drove to work for a better connection. The conversation quickly turned to selling the account. Mizzi then took over and won the event.

However, Mizzi then emphatically denies he regularly cheats, account sells, or ghosts:

"...I'm not a – I'm not a cheater; I'm not a multi-accounter. I acted fast without malice and didn't intend to hurt Chris and myself, opponents, or the entire poker community. This is something that was a one-time – it was a one-time thing and I clearly didn't give it much thought, which is exactly why I got caught, because… because of actually logging into his account which would be traced. But, I want to make it clear that this is something that was an isolated incident and it's, it's not something that I've done in the past."

Vaughn later admits he "lied" in an interview on thepokerroad.com with Harbabalosis Voulgabalosisisis and Scott Huff when he denied selling the account.

With all these unethical young punks around these days, this doesn't surprise me at all. Play Low stakes and stay away from cheaters like Imper1um.

Tony

Just another punk kid that thinks that he is untouchable until caught. I hope Full Tilt permanently bans his Pee-Wee Herman look-a-like a##, but I highly doubt it. No wonder online poker continues to get a bad name. Nerds like him have to resort to cheating because they can't win any other way either online or in the real world.

Did someone mention the forbidden term in poker? INSTANT MESSAGE. If two guys at the same table know four cards before anyone bets, they could beat God. Of course, the new breed of online player would never do something so easy, so obvious, so nut-cinch producing. Now if three guys know six cards!! O.K., let's all take a Gambler's Oath not to use INSTANT MESSAGE. And a Scout's Oath too. Put three fingers in the air. Johnny Hughes
