Re: The old pokerstars PLO botring, this time on WPN

Yes, because pokersites have never confiscated or stole anyone's funds without a reason before, so he has 0 reasons to worry.

Re: The old pokerstars PLO botring, this time on WPN

The players have to police (better described as monitor) the games. If I recall correctly, 7 of the 10 biggest winners on PokerStars PLO200 were bots. AND it was the players who caught them not PokerStars !

The bot hunt requires casting a wide net. Unfortunately innocents can get snagged in the net. But player to bot comparisons like done by Schwein in the other thread quickly separate the similar from the dis-similar.

Most sites list the player's country. WPN also list the player's sign up date. The charts above would be well served to add rows for country and start up date. There are some suspicious groups of players with similar sign up dates. Out of the blue a few months back a large number of PLO200 players signed up to WPN and started playing. Sure Stars has ringed off certain countries or stopped serving them. But the the accounts in question on WPN aren't countries that lost service to Stars recently. Either WPN is fortunate to have a lot of new low to mid-stakes PLO players or more likely they just got a PLO bot infestation. WPN PLO action use to be a ghost town compared to this year's action.

The bot search continues...keep looking. WPN PLO25 to PLO200 (and above) has had some strange things happen this year.

Re: The old pokerstars PLO botring, this time on WPN

The betcoin skins dont show the player country. You play in a newtork where some players are forced to show country and city and others dont. If you have a bot where do you go? yep...

There are some new female accounts from Estonia, Turkey, Israel, Ukraine etc. that are pretty suspicious.

Re: The old pokerstars PLO botring, this time on WPN

Everyone should play Ignition... PLO is way better and softer

Not a brag... but maybe this will get WPN to crack down, +30K on ignition in the last 72 hours... meanwhile sketchy **** happens every time I deposit WPN

Maybe the good Karma from getting robbed at WPN is translating to the run good of my life ;-)

hmmmm

While Ignition withdraws do take longer than WPN withdraws...

Let's look at the fact you can withdraw $9500 BTC on Ignition and currently WPN doesn't allow me to withdraw at all via BTC (may not be true for all accounts)

Also Ignition let me process two bitcoins in 3 days as well as a check the week before which in WPN I would only have been able to do a check per week.

Yes I admit WPN gets you checks fast I've received a check as fast as next day from when I withdrew but usually 2-4 days max.

So you have the downside of certifiable BOTS on WPN with slightly faster withdrawls VS. Slower withdrawals at Ignition, softer games, and no proven bots

Although in fairness bots could be everywhere

There are bots on the ignition network. Many of the good regs are aware of this. PLO 1k and 2k specifically. Not sure about other stakes.

Serious accusation (though I wouldn't be surprised if true) to make and then just drop the mic and be out of the thread.

I don't have the proof. I have talked to a few regs that crush on Ignition and they are sure of it. I haven't played on there long enough to have proof of it myself. Go ask ChicagoJoey

Just search in google, there is plenty confirmation that people are running bots on wpn, bovada. The only question is how high are they playing.

GranatoBetano is now the most obvious bot on the WPN network for PLO. Plays all limits from PLO 100 - 1k

Re: The old pokerstars PLO botring, this time on WPN

I remember reading about TonyTrips being considered as a bot? Was there anything behind this?

Was playing 25/50 on ongame last night and he classically popped up to bumhunt me #beat. I questioned him on it. He never used to chat at all but now he responds in a really weird way. ie it was literally like talking to a robot.

TonyTrips is a very weird nit and a pretty big loser in my db
