They are cheating. It is really as simple as that.
It is a win win situation for the poker room though. The bot makes them money through rake by playing for these long unbelievable stints and the bots, even though losing make money through RB when they can get a good deal like the ones offered on that site.
It would literally cost the poker rooms tens of thousands of pounds if they were to ban these players.
I think if they are accepting that these players are taught by a `poker school` then they should release a full list of players that they know about so people can choose whether to play them or not because if they are in a single sweat shop or whatever then they could easily collude against us. Obviously thats not the case though because even playing for 12 hours at a time these players dont change their style and play exactly the same poker from start to finish.
What is the story behind these schools though. I just wonder because as i pointed out in this thread last week there was one day when the bots changed their play up and about 6 of the accounts i played against(the only ones i did that day) started limping and folding 100% of the time when raised. Ive never seen one of them limp before then all of a sudden 6 of them start doing it. All seems a bit strange and what poker school lets players continuously play losing poker?
On another note does anyone know who regulates Ipoker because it may be worth going to them on this issue as well if we can get enough evidence on this.
For me William Hills response has raised more questions than answers.
