Here's The Nevada Criminal Complaint Against Poker Pro Bryan Micon

Micon Faces Up To 10 Years If Convicted Of Alleged Crime


Poker pro Bryan Micon is currently being accused of operating an unlicensed Internet gaming site by the state of Nevada. The alleged misconduct carries a possible prison term of up to 10 years, plus a five-figure fine. Nevada currently regulates two online poker sites within its borders.

Micon allegedly broke the law by running bitcoin-fueled Seals with Clubs, which was shut down in February. He wrote on the site dedicated to raising money for his legal defense: “I maintain that I have committed no wrongdoing.” Micon added that he has “legal representation in both Antigua and Nevada.” He has so far raised $3,530 in a week.

Micon is being represented by Las Vegas-based attorney David Chesnoff, who has represented well-known poker players Phil Ivey, Paul Phua and Dan Bilzerian in the past.

“Mr. Micon maintains his innocence and we’re looking forward to litigating on what appears to be a case of first impression,” Chesnoff told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “We are going to advise our client that he’s been charged in Las Vegas and what his legal obligations are.”
