re: *** Official PokerStars Regulars Thread ***

amazing. non-koth is such a **** ballache. You still get all the grimmers but you have to sit at about 20 tables if you want to just grind 6-9

i dont get how its a kick in the nuts to those without script? instead of only getting half of the fish due to 20 annoying regs opening tables, you get all the fish now. and you reach your table limit much quicker

I reported some grimmers and stars emailed me saying they banned them for like 1 day lol.

It would be nice to see the countries with the highest number of accounts busted for botting/cheating get a hugely reduced table cap (down to maybe 4 or even 2). Yes the determined cheaters would move country/multiaccount harder but it would put a dent in the problem without affecting recs from that country too much.

Feel free to double check some of these in case i made a mistake but it looks like we have a bit of a problem:/

re: *** Official PokerStars Regulars Thread ***

I have a quick question for you guys,

I'm generally curious about why you choose to play on stars over Ipoker, Micro etc etc. Given the fact you get a ton of rakeback on these sites. Do you think it's to reg infested where as stars has a lot more recreational players to play against?

Software? games spread... you can grind tourneys whilst playing?

Or does the rakeback not really have a effect in the long term? Not sure what the total rakeback is nowadays on stars for a Platinum or Supernova.

Stsrs has plenty of fish and bad regs. And more are joining everyday probably ten-fold to other smaller sites.

Stars' traffic and software win hands down to any other site I've played on. Plus the fact I've been there for two years since I first played real money and have always had completely smooth withdrawals and first class service from support also add to why I play there.

easiest way to check is see if you have a refund in your cashier history.

I'm really not sure, they haven't been playing though. I assume that they're all in a similar position to Romulaz but who knows, stars could still just be investigating some of them.

Time to be on the look out for random new accounts that turn up and crush. The good thing is we can now rely on stars to ban them 2-3 years after we first warn them about the suspicious accounts.

Did that bot detection skype group for regs to discuss suspected bots in a private forum ever get formed?

Romulaz and Kalben were suspected/accused of using smth 2 years ago?
In PS' defense it seems hard to catch someone using game advice
