          Thanks for the update. Seemingly those 2008/9 events add up to his loss against J.Honest. Still, I fail to see hard evidence of his being involved with the bets directly, which is what a solid case needs to have. Amounting suspicions does not prove anything. If every comical betting pattern leads to a ban, then the tour will be quite empty after a while...

            They don't need hard evidence of his being involved with the bets directly. Unlike criminal cases, which do require a certain level of 'hard' evidence, civil investigations (like this one) can come to a decision based solely on the 'balance of probability'.

            If I was a betting man, I would bet good money that Stephen Lee will be banned for at least a year.

              The only problem with a year ban is that it will not stop the scams. Better a life ban - that sends out a real message to all the unscrupulous villains out there - and it allow an honest John to join the tour to make up the 128
