No other pokerstars account had ever been logged from my PC, I never used an illegal program while i was playing, i really do not know what close asociation means promotion abuse, ofcourse i never had second acount .I do not know what to expect after this email. Did anyone reiceve ever tha same email?

Re: Account closed by pokerstars

After closing my acount and denying any further information and connection with me about the evidence that shows i have done something illegal(which until know i yet do not know what it is) i sent them the following email:
Dear Pokerstars
I am a man with dignity and even if i have to fight to keep it that way i will.
1)You have closed my acount without giving me the evidence for doing that which is totaly anupropriate
2)For such a big issue you denied phone connection which is ridiculus for a company with your name
3) ido not have any acount association with anybody
4)I have never abused your promotional recourses
5)If by saying promotional recources you mean the Pyramid puzle ,as a regural for 3-4 years i play at least 2000 hands per day and can easily achieve it , without the need of others acounts.I saw other players at nl10 playing and always checking to achieve it. The reason i saw them is because i believed they were recreational and i could make profit from them so i seated at the table. What kind of connection could i have with them? Also i
am from Greece and as i remember they were Russian or Ukranian .
6)You did not respont with responcibility. You are the first that should sent me an email.
7)Destroying a poker career which someone fights for several years so easy by closing an account without further information by your side is outragious for our poker comunity ,I will make sure everybody will know my situation and i am thinking of taking further actions in law because acusing someone without even leting him know what the acussions really are

Because i am a kind person so let me answer you, i live in a town greece far away from cazinos which offer many poker options, many sites in Greece are illegal even know,i live in a poor family. I was building a bankroll for 9 months at nl5(12bb/100),nl10(6,5bb/10) and reached 3300$ and i was trying to become better with coaching. If you can give me advise it would be really helpfull . I know the first thing to think is that i have done something illegal. I believe i did not but even if idid THEY DO NOT inform me what it is . I am not another angry moron who tryed to cheat i can assure for that. Thank you for your time at least reading this post

Re: Account closed by pokerstars

Seems pretty obvious that OP got his other half, children, parents, pets and dead pets to all make accounts to use the first deposit bonus more than they should, probably also registering for the million on winning days to avoid tax in the process

You're being accused of multi-accounting and/or colluding with other players.
When Pokerstars wrote to you, did they ask you if you were associated with any other specific screennames? (They usually ask something like "What is your relationship with PlayerXXXXX and PlayerYYYYYY?")

In some cases, they don't need to ask, because it's obvious from your playing history that most/all of your games were on the same tables as your buddies/family members.

The email doesn't say they've confiscated your balance. Did they allow you to withdraw your funds? Where are the other emails? You need to show them all or it doesn't wash.

You agreed to PokerStars' Terms & Conditions. They do not have to demonstrate with 100% certainty that you broke their rules, they can close accounts without giving a reason & many sites in the general gambling world will close accounts without giving a reason - for example if you are a winning bettor

Perhaps you can make a case in law if they confiscated your funds, but clearly they have not done so.

Yeah, if no money is being confiscated, then OP should save his energy and move on.

Dear fellow grinders ,i know in this life that sometimes it is dificult even to prove that you are not an elephant. I also know that if i had read this post i would definetly say " come on he surely made collusion or something like that". I know i can not prove anything .I also know that i am a man with dignity . i will show you all the email history one by one

ME:
Dear Pokerstars ,
While i was playing ,i was informed that my acout is frozen and that i should send you amessage .
Could you inform me the reason to froze my acount because i was not using any not legal software, all of them are at your list which is at your website.

Dear Pokerstars
Closing an account is a major issue . I can assure that i did not make any kind of collusion and never had multipull acounts. I can explain the way i played every single hand because i am a regular nl5,nl10,nl16,nl25 player for 3 years.
How is it possible to prove to you that through email?? At least sent the hands in order to respond. I am a victim here as you are . My account is closed and i dont even know why!!!!! I am not a bot , you have my id number e.t.c
I am o noble person who is abused , at least i want to get in touch with someone from the support of pokerstars

pokerstars:Hello Konstantinos,

Thank you for your email

of course they took myfunds 3300$ the main reason i am devastated is i do not know why. I am 31 years old maths teacher and of course i will move one with my life, the main reason i post this is because of the way they treated me wich is unrespectfull at least. I know i have signed the terms of use and i know they could close my acount if they wanted. I just dont know why ,and i am angry not because of the money but of making look like a criminal i can not stand a thing like that. I can show you my graphs if you want to see that i am a reg .

Re: Account closed by pokerstars

Why dont you post the names of your and the other accounts? I have a feeling that other accounts are greek allso. And if youre innocent it doesnt really matter if your friends account is banned. Stars can ban yours allso in that case.

They did not tell other acounts ,I do not know!!!!!!!!

And because you speak about family , my older brother and parents have nothing to do with poker and even cards and of course they do not have acounts. I am afraid that someone in greece could have the same first and last name and made an acount or what hapenned with the pyramid puzle from other player who is unknown to me(they checked to make the puzle as i saw at holdem manager review) and i seated at their table because i thought they were fish. Their nicknames were desr21, DEERZKI . avoid seting with them

PokerStars didn't mention that in the email exchange you published in this thread! Freezing or outright closing an account doesn't mean that they've seized your account balance. When they seize funds I think they explicitly say so as in this RANDOM EXAMPLE from another 2+2 thread:
Quote:
"...in accordance with our Terms of Services, we would like to inform you that your account balance has been seized and your funds will be redistributed to appropriate responsible gaming charities around the world"
It is equally strange that you didn't say to them "I want my funds!"

At the moment I'm thinking your Patatosalata is short on the potatoes. Where are you hiding the potatoes?

Your email exchange doesn't make sense to me. It could be me at fault. Is it?

[A] PokerStars turns down your request to talk to them by telephone before you ask to talk to them by phone

[B] Then you write this to PokerStars:
Quote:

5)...What kind of connection could i have with them? Also i am from Greece and as i remember they were Russian or Ukranian...
Why do you mention specific players & nationalities for no reason? Why those players when PokerStars didn't mention specific players? Or have you left out that information in your copy/paste here?

I suppose that your emails [as you've pasted them here] are in the wrong order & there's emails missing. You are not very organised for a mathematics teacher & you give the impression to me that you're holding stuff back

This. About every other similar case ps told op what are the other accounts. Can't understnd why they wouldn't do that in this case. Should take screenshots from those emails just like in that another fresh thread.

Re: Account closed by pokerstars

The parts in bold from Stars Security are all that matters:
Quote:
Subject: Stars Security - Account Permanently Closed: Promotional Abuse

Hello Konstantinos,

Your account has been closed as we have found your close association with another accounts: Question from _LOKI_: was there some account names here in the email? Did you remove those names? The email looks strange the way it is phrased, I'm expecting at least two names here

These accounts have been created to abuse our promotional resources;
therefore, we do not consider within the best interest of our customers to allow reinstatement of your account.

Kind regards,
Mário
Stars Security
I do not understand you Kostas. You are a mathematics teacher & you are in your 30s so you should be able to write rationally & clearly, but you are the opposite of what I expect. You send replies to Stars Security & you post material here that is irrelevant & careless. For example, your first posts here left some of the emails out so that your email content makes no sense. Now you give us all the emails with none missing [it seems], but still it makes no sense because your comments to Stars Security are so irrational. You do yourself no favours by being so 'Mr. Bean' in the emails & in your presentation of your case in this thread:

EXAMPLES:
** Posting a link to your HM2 graph in this thread is a waste of time - it is not relevant
** Most of your comments to PokerStars are irrelevant & don't help you
** You tell PokerStars that they're "destroying a poker career" so these emails to PokerStars are very important to you, but you cannot be bothered to use an English spell checking program & your writing is incoherent
** You mention bots to Stars Security when it's clear in their first email it's nothing to do with bots
** You mention sitting with Russian/Ukrainian players for absolutely no reason

THE SUBJECT IS "Promotional abuse" - not your win rate so lets talk about that. In one of your weird emails to Stars Security you seem to be saying that you hunted some players because they are bad players & that's why you are sitting with them. In one email you write this:
Quote:
...pyramid puzle ,as a regural for 3-4 years i play at least 2000 hands per day and can easily achieve it , without the need of others acounts.I saw other players at nl10 playing and always checking to achieve it. The reason i saw them is because i believed they were recreational and i could make profit from them so i seated at the table. What kind of connection could i have with them? Also i am from Greece and as i remember they were Russian or Ukranian.
Questions for Kostas [please number your answers for clarity!]

[01] Stars Security do not mention poker or playing poker. Are you sure this is about poker?
[02] Did you sit with the same players all the time? Many times?
[03] If not why mention these players?
[04] In Greece is PokerStars' Casino allowed?
[05] In Greece is BetStars allowed?
[06] If [04] or [05] are allowed have you used them? In other words - do you ONLY play poker on the PokerStars software?
[07] Have you been trying to clear any PokerStars deposit or betting bonuses? Or have you said "yes" in the s/ware to any other types of promotions?
[08] Have you ever sent or received money to/from other peoples accounts using the PokerStars Player-to-Player transfer system?
[09] Have you withdrawn funds recently?
[10] Have Stars actually said they've seized your funds? I don't see it in the emails. They only say they'll seize your funds if they catch you opening a new account.
[11] Is that all the emails now? Any missing?

Good news, I'm pleased for you. But IMO your case problems have nothing to do with Rational Group being owned now by Amaya [if that's what you're saying] - it is very unusual for these decisions to be reversed & they could have said nothing. GLGL

Dear Loki , i understand every question you did make. My english is not so good and maybe it was my mistake to react like Mr.bean .At least it was not on purpose .About the graph :i just wanted to show that i am regural player so the comunity could take my words more serious.
1)I was not sure
2)No i just once so a table with 2 unknown player so i was seated
3)Because i saw what THEY did was unopropriate(they always checked to fulfil the pyramid)
4)Yes
5)i do not know because i never bet
6) not used any of them
7)Not one for years , i clicked yes to unlock the pyramid, I clicked NO to casino bonus
8)ihave not for 3 years at least
9)NO for 9 months
10)NO stars only said what is in the emails
11) The only 1 emails tha is "missing" from the print screen is one in the 3rd post i made in this thread .I sent it not as a reply thats why i can print screen it alone ( ME:
Dear Pokerstars
Do i have the right to know what you mean << association>> to other acounts? I have this desktop 1 month and noone has ever logged pokerstars
except me.Could be someone who was a bot an tryed to hack my account?
I can not enhace my security at the moment because my account is closed, Iam very woried and hope you can solve and give further for this situation .
Kind Regards
Kostas Katranas

My dear friend 4 years ago Pokerstars froze my acount for 3 days, but they said that they were investigating a case and when they finish invastigation they will take further action. This time they also froze my acount but you can clearly
read by their emails that they had no intention of investigation . They just informed about that.

When you wrote "always checking to achieve it" in your email to Stars Security I didn't understand what you had written. Now I do. In summary these 'Russians/Ukrainians' were...

Creating new accounts [according to PokerStars' email to you]
Then they sit together & play poker in such a way as to clear the daily Pyramid Puzzle Promotion in the cheapest & quickest way

This is a LOT of trouble for not much reward. I've just looked at the payout table & it's a daily average EV of +$1.74 - it doesn't make sense that Stars Security are monitoring this "Promotion Abuse" as they call it & it also doesn't make sense that people are creating accounts just for this promotion. There is something else going on with these new accounts that you are unaware of I think.

Re: Account closed by pokerstars

In the other hand i apreciate that PS after my requests investigated again my case .I have to thank at least the members in the pokerstars support who did not believe my emails where just a waste of time. And also saw that through my hole career as a grinder i never caused such problems.
