Question Suspicious player on Stars?

Curious what we think.

"Reiarturo"
First Game Date: 2008-09-29 18:47
Count: 229 851
ITM%: 25,1%
Total ROI: -0,3%

Player took precisely 5sec to act in every hand (even when folding pre).
Noticed player first multi-tabled, but no better when down to 1 tabling.

Asked support to have a look at it. But nothing came out of it.

He's got a pocket fives page, and a twitter account, and a blog, if you want to send him your best wishes.

He sounds like a fan of Pokerstars. https://twitter.com/Reiarturo_/statu...51804648542214

While sending him my best wishes, I will enlighten him about the pre-action button "Fold".

Re: Suspicious player on Stars?

What a weird thread. You are complaining about a guy who has played 5,000 tournaments this year (nothing exceptional), who also played a ton of 6 man turbo SnGs (hint, mainly guys were mass tabling tournaments like those in the good ol days) 7ish years ago, which again is nothing exceptional. Perhaps he was doing SNE in those days (his game selection like the $55 6 man turbos was one SNEs played). Looking further it seems that 2011 was a year he went for SNE (about 100,000 games played ABI over $20). 2012 was about half the volume but more than double the ABI, so maybe SNE or close again. 2013 was 9,000 games with a low ABI so the SNE tries were done. He barely played much after that for a couple years and now is back trying his hand in some lower buy in games.


Your average tournaments per day statistic is totally useless. Your assessment of the situation is inane. Nothing came of it because nothing is here, other that you being a bit whiny because this guy takes longer than you would like to play.

You do know there's a thing called "lag" right? So just because he appears to take "precisely" 5 seconds per action it doesn't actually mean he's taking that time.

Also hilarious that you're implying this dude's a bot because of his massive volume of 60 tournies a day, lol.

OP would you be willing to bet money he takes precisely 5 seconds to act on every hand. Not that I'd bet against you, but I would say this is either a thing that is or isn't true and could be proven one way or another. So would you bet? Are you sure?

I'm honestly not sure if you're that sure, so I'm curious.

Edit: I see that Monterey has probably basicly destroyed the thread. I'm out, good day all.

I doubt lag would cause you to take precisely 5 seconds on every single action you take over a certain period of time. But maybe I'm dumb/wrong here.

Anyways I greatly doubt the OP's story now anyways.

Maybe he just using timemojo or similar software.
You can automatically delay user action times with it to avoid timing tells.

Not sure what this is supposed to mean - isn't that exactly what you've been getting?

What is "x time"? It was 5 seconds before; has that changed? And how are you measuring so that you know precisely how long he took each hand? Of course, leaving aside the fact that you have no idea how much lag there could be for both him and you.

Seems like Monteroy broke things down pretty well - no response for him?
