It's been asked for repeatedly, so here it is.
Here is a place you can name and shame the scummy regs you encounter at the tables. Please explain why they are scummy or better yet provide some evidence such as a screenshot or some hand histories.
Hopefully by applying public pressure to these guys, we can instigate some changes in behaviour at the tables that currently stars seems unable or unwilling to do themselves.
This thread has to be maintained properly and done with at least some dignity. It's not here just for name calling and it's not here so you can wage petty battles.
Every reg has the right to dispute their name being added to this thread (since everyone makes mistakes occasionally). And everyone should consider who is reporting the reg and whether it is just. As such, just because someone gets mentioned in this thread once, it doesn't mean that he is inherently scummy.
However you can have greater confidence that the players who are repeatedly mentioned are indeed a "scummy reg".
What constitutes being scummy
can be quite subjective, but here is a list of some (but not all) of the areas to look out for, most of which contravene stars TOS or there ring game rules found here (http://www.pokerstars.ee/en//poker/room/policies/ring/
tables when hu, especially starting tables (less so when tables close but extreme offenders may be worth mentioning)
- Sitting out when fish does
and then sitting back in as soon as they do too (don't be retards)
to get fish to leave a ring game to play HU (without any previous animosity between the two players). No It is not alright to try and break the game like this without good reason.
- Fake tablestarting
Tricky to fully define. The sort of reg that will sit 4 or 5 empty tables but refuse to start a game with anyone bar a -30BB fish, when other regs sit they either sit out or worse leave, then open a new empty table. Fake tablestarting also should be clarified if they sit alone but leave (and don't sit at new tables) if another reg tries to play them it's not scummy. If no one else is really starting tables and a reg wants to start but will only play fish shorthanded that is fine also and should not be noted in this list.
Am sure there are other examples also that i haven't listed.
We should be aware not to include players we suspect of botting
, if you suspect some one of that then please report it to stars support and do not post in this thread. It is in everyones interest that the botters are unaware of us identifying their accounts.
Finally, Scummy is a subjective word so please don't just throw it around without giving it due thought
. If this thread ends up getting too derailed or just becomes a poo flinging contest then i will just ask a mod to close and delete it.
I will try to occasionally complie and update a list of the definite culprits. And will ask one or two other regs to help me in deciding whether someone deserves to be added to it or not. Gl at the tables.
