Absolute Poker was founded by Scott Tom. From early in the life of the site the owners were involved in large scale cheating on the site.

In 2008 AbsolutePoker was merged with UltimateBet in an attempt to clean up the image of both companies after they were wrapped in a huge cheating scandal where they stone tens of millions of dollars from their players.

AbsolutePoker has been represented by Mark Seif and Michael Mizrachi for several of the last few years. Seif has been implicated in the cheating scandals on the site.
