There were many rumors surrounding Josh Fields who is also know as ‘JJProdigy’ or ‘ablackcar’, that he may be playing in the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure events. However, PokerStars had its own angle to deal multi-user Josh Fields. PokerStars is taking on a new notion on banning players from partakHot Chicking in live events if they are banned from the PokerStars website. Josh Fields was banned on PokerStars and Party Poker back in early 2006 when he was found cheating. He also had over $180,000 confiscated.

This all got stirred up again last week when Josh Fields issued an apology on Pocketfives.com and can be viewed here. Here are a few quotes from his post: “I was fourteen turning fifteen, and I was much too immature to handle the situation (ABlackCar incident, and the underage violations that followed). I am almost embarrassed reading my posts about the situation, but I realize that I was still very young at the time.”
After all that happened, I was banned from PokerStars and PartyPoker, and all my accounts were closed for being underage. .”

I finally realize now that I was cheating completely. I neglected my fellow poker players and cheated a wonderful thing we have with online poker. I betrayed a community I cared so much about all for selfish reasons. It shames me to think about it. I did it for so long, and I never had the courage to quit and admit what I was doing was wrong.”

So, I write this to officially apologize to the community. I apologize to the people that have been close to me and have been given a negative name due to my actions. I apologize to all the players I played with under unknown names and gave myself an unfair advantage. I give my word that I will never multi-account again, and I will not play online until I am 18. I apologize to the sites that I unfairly took advantage of. I don’t expect to be forgiven right away, but I hope I can earn the forgiveness of the community, the sites, and even my friends.”

We kinda feel for the kid since he was quite young when he pulled this shit off. However, it seems quite convenient that he is apologizing now, 2 weeks before he turns 18? Something tells us that Josh has something cooking… Well anyways, we won’t see him at this years Pokerstars Caribbean Adventure.

This all started in 2006, when user name ‘ablackcar’ won the $500,000 GTD on Party Poker and took home $140k. Within an hour after he won, an on the ball poster at Pocketfives forum realized that ‘ablackcar’ and ‘JJProdigy’ has striking similarities. It escalated from there, and before you know it, both accounts were froze by Party Poker and Josh Fields was guilty of multi-accounting and cheating. PokerStars did there own investigation and concluded that he was in fact cheating there.

If Josh Fields was killing tournaments when he was 14, he must possess some serious poker skills. We guarantee we have not heard the last of the infamous Josh Fields.
