Re: UB!! Why can I see what people fold?

i don't know nearly as much about a certain ub hsnl reg who's eye closes when he sees an X, but all the evidence i've seen points to him being a cheat, the biggest reason being that he makes horrible plays all the time an still crushes.

Re: UB!! Why can I see what people fold?

if he actually cheated to win all that money, i find it hard to believe he'd be stupid enough to come over to ftp and jump into the same games knowing he no longer had that advantage

Is there any actual evidence that the FTP guy is the same guy? (Sorry if that's a dumb question.. I stopped following this story a while ago)

Very few random people sit with 5-6 regs at hu lhe at 100 200+ at one time and like 6 table. I saw him do it on ap a couple times and on ftp on that new account a couple times. I figured it was him on that ftp account right when he did that.

Re: UB!! Why can I see what people fold?

I'm pretty convinced Xwink is Xblink and that he isn't cheating on FTP nor was he cheating on UB. Look at Xwink's sharkscope on FTP. The guy isn't nearly as bad as you guys like to make him out to be. However he has ran like the sun.

I've played some against xwink on ftp at HU PLO, I won and didn't notice anything fishy although he played somewhat unorthodox.

Re: UB!! Why can I see what people fold?

its just a software glitch thats making only certain people show their hole cards EVERY TIME when they fold.. instead of fold and mucking. Yesterday was pretty hilarious in the 1k buy-in ryanbluf and 011pokerdr had to show every fold they made the entire tourney, a bit of a disadvantage i'd say?

i was playing on 1020 with him on UB when he asked around for FTP monies saying he was going to start playing there. the next week he turns up on FTP.

XBLINK on UB has a massive tilt problem. XWINK on FTP also has a massive tilt problem. both play high stakes HU.

id say its pretty likely

Re: UB!! Why can I see what people fold?

fwiw, when I played badseed the same thing happened, as well as a few other SnG players like cuteipi maybe? I forget now. Just htought it was some random thing that SnG players decided to start fold and showing lol. But fwiw, I don't recall it being every hand, just most?
