this is insane. of all the times there have been talk of a player boycott, this needs to be the one where regs refuse to play. you are not playing in fair poker games. you are being cheated. dont sit.

Maybe we can get a statement from Party Poker at least?

Started looking like and hour ago and I got 4 of those already, identical to the Stars ones. Same **** with 3bet=Sqz, BB Agg=Agg, WWSF>49 WTSD=28+-, those low folds to cbets on flop, cbet flop IP around 70%, C/R F-T-R 15-15-3. Everything is as it should be.

I look for them and its either 3-4 stats max matching and then the rest different, or its 20+ stats being exactly the same as for the botters on Stars.

There is totally no middle ground. If its a match, its a 100% one. For the rest of the regs I can tell very quickly that they are different and not one of them.

I stopped pursuing this theory completely.

I saw data from some pretty big DBs. Totally no reason to believe that they are colluding, card sharing or working together in any way. I never claimed they are.

They dont run above EV when seated at the same table, and they have much lower observed winrate as they should when seated with another good reg instead of a random player.

I think this is a losing proposition to most of the regs at the stake level.

They also profit from fun players and seriously hurt the PLO ecosystem by crushing each limit they play.

Taking out money from the econemy is the main concern. They play far from GTO-balanced and are quite exploitable. There is a reason they never played 5-10+.

Indeed, they did badly at 500+.

They are not GTO as in game theory optimal, but if we had to distinguish between exploitable approach and GTO approach, they sure take the GTO road. Trying to be unexploitable and actually managing to be unexploitable are 2 different things

Yes I would highlight the word somewhat and not being exploited by the players at their stake level.
If they had huge leaks in their game they wouldn't be crushing zoom like they are now.

Re: Massive bot ring on PokerStars and how to spot them

Well, the fact of the matter is that plo games 200 and below are still fairly soft (in terms of overall player skill, dont wana start a rake discussion here or whatever), so accounts who are able to play ridiculous number of hands and never go on tilt will prey on the recs and weaker regs thus destroying the overall economy.

Even the bosses of plo5k+ should be concerned because of this fact even tho these bots obviously wont have a chance against them.

Making it tougher for weak regs to shot take is a huge problem for higher stakes players

Why are you so interested in forcing your views as facts?

You JUST moved to plo10(5cent/10cents), how do you know anything about the level these boats can beat? The NL bots beat 1k, why wouldnt the plo bot beat plo1k+ right now or very soon?

They might not have chance against them now but future will bring better equity calculations and more computing power.

He is a zoom 500 reg. But lets keep ego battles out of this thread.

Re: Massive bot ring on PokerStars and how to spot them

i think theres 2 big reasons bots won a lot:

1- nobody knew they were bots. if everyone knew they were bots, they wouldn't win like they did. its a lot diference play vs a bot when you know its a bot, than when you are sure its a human playing . history/metgame plays a lot when you multitabling same guys everyday .

you are lost when you play vs a bot, being sure its a human . but you have lots of chances to beat the same bot, when you know its a bot .

2- they don't tilt .

It's still dumb as **** to claim that bots don't beat plo1k because the "regs are so good". There's a decent chance the best bots around are those guys at nl and plo1k+ that nobody understands. (ie ICEMAN for NL)

But i did get excited, sorry. Happens to often that an old reg date plays nl2cent and comments with infinite knowledge of highstake games. Thought you were one of them :>

Funny enough today PS fires a bunch of staff, game integrity and a lot other positions. Not because theyre failing at their job but to reduce costs. So we can deff expect PS to do worse than what theyre doing right now

Re: Massive bot ring on PokerStars and how to spot them

I have no idea how to group them, so i'll just list the main ones I could find in VsPlayer tab of HM2
FedorZaysev +3879
Samanta81 +4051
4somniare +802
seregaxx -679 (very few hands as i dont think he plays zoom)
emper0r92 +248(also very few hands)
IpushmyPrius -785
SuSaaNiN -1949
SSELrive +1440
IMissFender -160
RockfellaJ +1735 (few hands)

I might've played some hands against others on the list, but their names dont ring a bell.
Anyways, not sure why it matters.
