Magic The Gathering Cheating Scandal
As ridiculous as it might sound, Williams was the center of a huge cheating scandal at the 2001 World Championships of Magic: The Gathering in Toronto. Judges found that Williams had bent specific cards in his deck to make it easier for him to cut the cards after his opponent had shuffled it. Williams was disqualified and barred from playing Magic: The Gathering tournaments for one year. During this time, Williams started to play high stakes Texas Hold'em.
