Poker High Roller Sues Former Roommate Over Unpaid Rent, Basketball Tickets, Penny Stock Loan
Lawsuit Seeks To Recover More Than $90,000
Poker pro Yevgeniy Timoshenko, who has cashed for $7.3 million lifetime in poker tournaments, wants his former roommate to pay up.
A lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court pits Timoshenko, a World Poker Tour champion, against a man by the name of Frank Gu. According to the suit, the two had rented a $7,000-a-month apartment in New York City in September 2010.
Gu has about $10,000 in lifetime poker tournament scores.
They only had the place together for a year, but Gu allegedly owes Timoshenko $15,484 in unpaid rent and $2,181 in utility bills.
The New York Daily News was first to report on the suit, which also claims that Timoshenko loaned Gu $50,000 to invest in penny stocks and was never repaid.
Timoshenko now resides in Seattle.
Another allegation is that Timoshenko handed over $10,000 in cash to Gu for safekeeping while the former was abroad. Gu allegedly didn’t give the money back.
Timoshenko also wants $1,160 that he spent on court side basketball tickets.
Altogether, the lawsuit is for more than $90,000.
