If you look at Gal Yifrach’s numbers at Hendon Mob, you’ll see that the American player’s numbers are pretty good. Having earned over $2,250,000 in live tournament winnings during his career, Yifrach is a well-known figure in the poker community and also holds a 2018 WSOP bracelet.

The problem is that U.S. authorities not only have an incredible 142,689 pages of evidence in his indictment proving that Yifrach was the mastermind behind an illegal gambling operation two years ago. He was charged in March 2022 with operating slot machines and laundering money by investing the funds he received in real estate.

Yifrach often appears in famous cash games such as Hustler Casino Live. According to the charges, he “collected illicit funds from various institutions throughout California” and devised a method to conceal the source of the funds. In this way, he was able to hide the fact that his wealth came from illegal sources. The player was even arrested due to the high risk of leaving the United States, but was released on bail.

If convicted, the American player faces up to five years in prison for operating an illegal game and up to 20 years in prison for conspiracy to launder money. Lawyers for both sides will meet on March 4 ahead of a formal trial.
