Like several other players, Mark Teltscher came to poker from a background of other strategy games having gained a great deal of success at backgammon and bridge. When the EPT returned to London for season two, Teltscher emphatically added poker to that list by taking first place on home turf for £280,000. Further tournament success followed including second place at the Barcelona EPT a couple of years later, but these days the Teltscher name is most notably associated with an incident on Pokerstars during the WCOOP main event of 2007. Shortly after the tournament finished it was rumoured that the winner was Mark Teltscher yet the winning account went by the name of TheV0id, whilst Teltscher was known to play as another username which had busted much earlier in the event. Soon afterwards Pokerstars disqualified the winner, but nothing more was revealed about the owner of the account or why it had been disqualified until the following year when a court case was heard in the Isle Of Man. Markâ€™s sister Natalie Teltscher had filed a lawsuit against Pokerstars for unfairly disqualifying her account (TheV0id) and denying her the $1.2 million prize, but in the face of evidence provided by Pokerstars Teltscher admitted that it was not her playing on the account and the claim was withdrawn.
