Ye “Mars” Shen stands accused of cheating a private Southern California poker game out of millions of dollars. Poker pros Nikhil “Nik Airball” Arcot and Wesley “Wes Side” Fei have openly accused Shen of using a trick card deck designed to look like a regular pack during a recreational game. They made their allegations on X/Twitter last weekend, with the evidence suggesting that Shen may have used special contact lenses to see through the cards.
The alleged cheating allowed Shen to rake in around $3 million over the course of a year. Other players also took part in the cheating, with two co-conspirators, in addition to Shen himself, pocketing over a million dollars from the games, according to the poker pros.
Allegations and Denials
Shen allegedly admitted that the deck was marked but denied using it for cheating purposes. These allegations are independent of the ‘Hustler Casino Live’ controversies that occurred in the previous year.
Shen has yet to respond directly to these allegations through his social media account, @Marsback2earth on X/Twitter.
