I you wish to contest this I am more than willing to post the names of those concerned itt
The poker farm only staked players on Ipoker, micro gaming, merge and cake. This is a fact and can be verified by any one of our ex players.
If 20+ players are playing every day together in an office or that sort of environment do you really think it's in conceivable for those players and friends to play on other personal accounts? If they did, they did on there own accord or with there own staking/deal arrangements. This was not part of the poker farm.
As you mention above, if James was backing them personally then this is his own prerogative and agenda. What you mention above is hardly a crime and although perceived as unethical it's part and parcel of the unfortunate state and nature of the online poker industry as it stands, back then and still today.
We would not support or necessarily approve of these actions but given the circumstances and environment all these players were playing in then it's hardly inconceivable to imagine that players wont share or use friends accounts or even play tournaments together when using there personal accounts and being in the same room as on another.
We had no control or authority over there actions when playing on there own accounts, other than us trying to prohibit it as much as possible when they were being staked by us.
