Random question here. Where is your avatar from? For some reason I find it a little weird/creepy but at the same time I feel like its some kids cartoon

anyone suspecting/reported 88*88Rock88*88 being a bot? guy only played 100nl regular tables for ages (and if i correctly recall was one of the biggest winners there) and ever since zoom is not tracked by russian ptr he switched to zoom, which would make no sense + he does some suspicious stuff so just curious if anyones got info this dude..

Wait what? He was a winner? He's utterly atrocious (and folds far too much to be a bot)! Also FWIW he's been playing some zoom for at least 2 years.

So much for not outing suspects in the biggest poker forum.
It looks like a witch hunt and it also warns a potentially guilty player that he is being suspected.

Problem with discussing accounts in private is that people who don't want their SN outed on here can't gain access to that information (assuming to be a part of this discussion one would have to share their SN).

I don't see why people would care about their SN being outed nowadays, nobody discusses strat or posts HHs any more.

This, I remember playing with that guy at 50-100z 1-2 years ago and always thought he was one of the worst regs in the pool, a 19/16 nit with a tendency to run a nonsense bluff from time to time.

he's been around for quite a while and I don't think a bot would 3b/5b then tank 2minutes before 7b jam 93s 150bb deep bvb

Anyone interested in a anti-bot skype group? Very paranoid everytime I play against eastern euros with >50% WWSF. I don't have the expertise in datamining to spot bots but I have my suspicions and interested in talking to regs at 100z/200z, PM me if interested.

Stars emailed me out of nowhere they increase my table cap to 28. Played 18k hands this month there not a lot of tables.

So this is the way they want to improve recreational player experience??
Are there that suprised **** regs left a site??

Sure, but making ridic exaggerations but makes the issue seem like a joke to uninformed people, and then he's surprised he gets trolled for it.

It is a very serious issue, and we should definitely try to inform as many people as possible about it (not sure what else we can do on our side, besides reporting them to Stars, but they don't seem to do much). But mis-information like saying half the player pool is bots is just counter productive.

country doesn't mean anything. People vpn stars from america anyway. These guys aren't stupid, they will 100% be looking to set up accounts in other countries so not to arouse suspicion.
