Brandon Steven, 2010 WSOP Main Event Top-10 Poker Player, Subject of Federal Investigation

Kansas businessman and well-known poker player Brandon Steven is under surveillance by the US Department of Justice (DOJ), and he apparently wants the world to know about it.

Millionaire Brandon Steven is one of the best poker players who doesn’t consider it his profession, but his casino and gambling activity has now put him at the center of a DOJ probe.

Media outlets in Kansas have published a letter this week provided by Steven that clearly shows his involvement in a federal investigation. According to the document, the DOJ’s District of Kansas office revealed to the businessman that a telephone line he’s been utilizing was wire tapped for 30 days between May 14 and June 13, 2015.

Steven says the federal probe relates to his involvement with trying to build a casino in southeast Kansas, as well his routine playing of high-stakes poker. He explained to the Wichita Eagle that he’s fully cooperating and has committed no wrongdoing, nor have any charges or allegations been levied at him.

Steven is certainly no stranger to the poker circuit. He’s amassed over $3.1 million in live tournament earnings since 2006, and finished 10th at the 2010 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event for a win of $635,011. His distinguished poker resume includes 14 WSOP cashes.

No Crime Committed

The DOJ letter doesn’t assert any criminal misconduct, but simply informs Steven that he’s been watched.

MGM Springfield in Massachusetts is causing quite a stir, as another Connecticut casino is in the works to offset the impact of the megaresort.

The Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan Native American tribes are working together to bring the Constitution State a third casino venue. The joint venture is in response to MGM Springfield, the $950 million resort currently under construction in southern Massachusetts.

State lawmakers permitted the two tribal groups to build a third casino off their sovereign lands in order to keep gambling revenue in the state and protect jobs.

The Mashantucket and Mohegan people are considering building in the northern part of the state in the towns of Windsor Locks or East Windsor. That would place the Connecticut casino just 15 miles from MGM Springfield.

With MGM, state lawmakers, and residents anxiously waiting, the tribes say the official announcement of the casino will be revealed in the coming days. ‚We’re days, not weeks or months . . . from announcing a decision,‘ Mohegan Chairman Kevin Brown said this week.
