Evidence on RTA case GlitchSystem / Fedor Kruse

We didn’t think it would be necessary to publicly put all the in depth information out there and were trusting the various sites to do their job properly & fast with all the provided proof – this unfortunately doesn’t seem to be the case. At this point it is also clear that GlitchSystem (Fedor Kruse) is not going for the honest path (admitting & apologizing for what he has been doing) but instead keeps building up his web of lies. Creating this post has been contemplated & thought through a lot by all the people having an interest in revealing the truth & that is why it took some time to go public with all the evidence. In the following passages all the information/prove there is will be disclosed and everyone will be able to get an idea of what was/is going on and decide for themselves if GlitchSystem is guilty or innocent.

First of all the text Stars Security has been provided with by the roommates (the original text was sent in German & then later got translated by Stars into English – so the exact wording might be off sometimes):



Unfortunately this has not been taken serious for a long period of time, the account hasn’t even been blocked for investigations and GlitchSystem could continue to play normally - the actual investigation only recently got started when several German Highstakes Players (MTTs & Cashgames) brought up what they found to be potential evidence and reported GlitchSystem as well. Without even knowing that he has already been reported they got suspicious by his abrupt upmoving in stakes and the weirdly perfect lines from a player that less than a year ago was seen as “spot/shitreg” on only NL200. The German crew has been railing his games, solved hands that looked suspicious (to mostly find it was played perfectly) and kept building up more and more evidence. Here is what they found:



On 8th September PokerStars & GGNetwork got provided with even more clear evidence in case GlitchSystem. Screenshots of chats in which Kruse was talking about his “dream machine” including explanation – the mail they got provided with:


#1 - a screenshot of Niklas' whatsapp conversation with Fedor. Fedor bragging about a hand where he called down two pair on a 4 card flush board stating he was shocked you gotta call that combo 100% of the time on the River - Niklas reacting mad already just saying "you played with solver anyways" and Fedor replying "YES but Sandro & me were shocked" (side note - Sandro is his German friend who made the solves with him - nosuperstarr on Stars / forgermany on N8)


#2 - a screenshot of Manuels discord conversation with Fedor. Fedor stating "without dream machine you will be destroyed by the regs" ... "I actually even play HU (heads up) and just use BTN vs BB (talking about these specific solves)" "also works quite well"


#3 - since we clearly forbid him to use his assistance in our apartment & told him we do not tolerate it anymore and if he keeps using it we'll have to report him he was afraid and asked Manuel to play on PokerStars 200z stating "yo - will be clicking 200z without machine - for real - just so you know - no tables open and I wanna click"


#4 - same thing like in #3 - Fedor asking Manuel over whatsapp to play 200z - "will be clicking zoom and won't be using solves I promise"


Setup picture 1 - here you can clearly see him having his 2 mouse, 2 keyboards & the cheating monitor to his left with the folders where he has stored the solves for every single cashgame spot. On the grind monitor we can see him sitting the N8 tables & currently playing a hand on ACR.


Setup picture 2 - here he even has the solver (simple postflop) open and is using it for a River spot on ACR as we can see on the other monitor.


Who is his German friend & what’s his role in this – all the information there currently is:
- His real name appears to be Sandro
- Kruse has been online friends with him for years, talking over discord regularly, playing games etc. – but for unknown reasons Sandro always avoided real life contact and even videocalling with him
- His Starsname is nosuperstarr (longterm 100z grinder) and his N8 name is forgermany
- Sandro has been renting servers to mass script and create the required database
- It appears Sandro has not been using the assistance himself but instead only sold the massive database to Kruse and had action in some of his games
- It is unclear if he has been giving it to other players as well
- If someone has been in contact with this guy or even has been contacted to also use RTA please speak out


Apparently Kruse has accused the room mates of hating him and making this all up which seems pretty absurd especially in contrary to the recent Twitch comment stating “they both had action in my highstakes games” – which basically is admitting he cheated but kind of trying to justify it with HEY they had action ?!





Roommates statement to the accusation of having action in Kruse’s games:
Yes, the roommates did have action but this does not reflect the minority of games in which this was the case – so to what extent and in which games exactly will be fully disclosed now:

Manuel:
Manuel had action in exactly two games that totalled in only a few hours of play. 5% in an NL10k game and 2% in an NL40k game as you can see in the screenshots below.





Niklas:
Niklas had 2.5-5% in Fedor’s games over a period of two weeks in May as you can see in the screenshot. 26th May was the last time he ever had action in Kruse.

https://gyazo.com/8224a1e2efa206171acb9daf49172811


It was easy to get excited about the highstakes games going on and seeing 40.000$+ pots and having that thrill when railing a highstakes table where you got a small piece of action yourself while almost forgetting about that all this was based on cheating other hardworking players. At some point Manuel & Niklas had a long talk and realized together how this escalated, how many people are being damaged by Kruse and that this had to come to an immediate end. A dinner meeting has been summoned including Kruse, Niklas, Manuel and Henri Bühler. Kruse once again agreed to stop using ingame assistance and actually came up with the plan of going back to MTTs (since without his assistance he could not have been playing cashgames profitably). After taking a few days off from Poker he slowly returned back to highstakes cashgames – starting with NL1/2k to make it not too obvious for his roommates that he is still cheating and quickly moving up to the highest stakes again. From this point on progressing to the future up to recently he allegedly has been using the solver less and less while proudly claiming to his roommates that he was good enough in SRPs already and only uses it for tough 3bet and 4bet pots these days.

The roommates buying action in Kruse's games clearly was a mistake and the fact that it has only been for a minority of the thousands of games Kruse has been playing over the months should not be an excuse for unintendedly supporting all this by buying action - nonetheless the honest path has been chosen and the offer to also transition to highstakes cashgames by using Kruse's dream machine has never been an option for both roommates & was always clearly denied.

Re: Evidence on RTA case GlitchSystem / Fedor Kruse

Pretty damning evidence


repost from twitch chat to back up he is claiming innocence it would seem in reply to kaki tee asking him to come on stream or make a video







Re: Kaki asking him to go on stream and talk about situation or make a video about the accusations






---

When is the whats app convo from OP? Seems whoever he is texting already knows he is cheating but is still having friendly convo with fedor- is this before or after he was reported?


Kind of sounds like the roomates took their time to out him if timestamps on some of these msgs are back in february/march/april and them knowingly buying pieces in the 40k game etc etc , but glad it is outed publicly now at least

Re: Evidence on RTA case GlitchSystem / Fedor Kruse

I'm interested in a timeline
When did his roommates first realize and when did they report him?
What a weird ****ing dynamic that he has to tell his roommates ahead of time that he is going to grind and has to promise he wont use his solves

Bs this is. They explained it in detail how they got swept away by the action. Mad respect for Manu, niklas and Henry. The action selling can be swept under the rug. Most important is what they did afterwards and that is absolutely honourable.

What an idiot that guy is he managed to destroy his whole career cause of greed. He can and will never be sponsored anymore and is entering the the poker hall of shame.

On top Leon, who he obv. Cheated might want some retaliation.

Thanks op, respect.

Re: Evidence on RTA case GlitchSystem / Fedor Kruse

Doesn't look good for Fedor Kruse.

Multiple medium to strong pieces of evidence, but i think the roommates outing him is the biggest piece. There are multiple roommates. It's hard to believe they co-ordinated false claims against him. They would have to all hate him AND all think it's ok to fabricate false claims against someone (No chance really). So only other options is that they are wrong. This is more likely, but it's still unlikely together with the rest of the information and the confidence each individual roommate needs to bring it forward in the first place.

The focus should be solely on Fedor Kruse imo, and the backers left as a separate question. The backer(s) almost always have plausible deniability. Once Fedor Kruse is successfully banned/dealt with then it's possible he rage outs some backer(s) with explicit texts that he shared he was cheating before they backed him.

Re: Evidence on RTA case GlitchSystem / Fedor Kruse

lol at peoples first reaction to probably one of the most important news in Poker(I know this has been happening for a while but guessing lots don't know) is talking about the roommates potential guilt.

The cheater has to be reported to authorities/outed/whatever but there has to be a conversation with sites right now of what the future of Poker will be, the only reason games are running apparently is because of recs ignorance of what's going on, this won't last forever, I'm a rec and I will never play cash again and im guessing any not stupid rec will not play on public sites.
It's time for either legal repercussions for cheating or overhaul of cash games.

Re: Evidence on RTA case GlitchSystem / Fedor Kruse

“We don’t have and never had anything to do with his cheating”
From last paragraph in email to stars.

I’d classify buying action from said cheater as being involved.

It’s good they outted this guy, but why shouldn’t they be banned for this as well?

Buying action from a known cheater is almost as scummy as cheating yourself.

Re: Evidence on RTA case GlitchSystem / Fedor Kruse

Truly insane....playing the biggest stakes on any site is not a good idea imo, the chance u will get cheated is very high and the evidence here is beyond circumstantial. hopefully this story gets the attention it deserves. truly the story of the year and says a lot about online poker in 2020

The backer's are extremely relevant. If he went from NL100 to NL40k in less than a year, it's very likely that he has had <50% of his own action. So there are a lot of people who have been just as incentivized to let him continue with using RTA. He either had very "liberal backers" who let him battle vs BBB, Stefan etc, or they were in it.

Main story is obv about Fedor Kruse, but there's not much more to add at this point really

To give an example everyone can understand, how many Covid cases do you think there is for every positive test?
The details in this case dont matter, the real story is anyone can buy every spot presolved and unless you are telling your friends about it no one will know about it, poker sites are not looking for cheating this way.
I would like to hear a online cash game non cheater thoughts on this because to me it seems that if word gets out there cash in public sites is finished.

Re: Evidence on RTA case GlitchSystem / Fedor Kruse

Potential guilt?
They completely admitted they are guilty, and we’re lying in the email they wrote to stars.

Does doing one good thing absolve you from bad things?

Interested to hear Fedors perspective, as I don’t believe a sudden change of heart to be the reason for the outting.

Fedor deserves to be dealt with if what’s said is true, but that doesn’t mean we should completely ignore the roomates roll in this.

people are fighting over the roommates buying like 5% total action in 2 sessions, but buehlero buying 65%+ over multiple sessions seems unimportant....

Re: Evidence on RTA case GlitchSystem / Fedor Kruse

Maybe I'm missing something but even if everything that is alleged is 100% true.

Is it against the terms of any of the poker sites?

I'm not seeing any real time software being suggested or used?

He is basically using the 2nd computer to look at pre-made charts.

Nothing interacts with his opponent or the software or makes real time adjustments based on the opponent stats as far as I can see?

So it would seem its OK to run sims and memorize them but not to have them written down?

Arnt huds or notetakers more automated than this?

Huds and notes are basically thousands of premade charts with data to help you play your opponent?
