This is going to sound ridiculous but there's 100's of bots playing on stars in the HU play money (lol) games. Go open sit at 50/100 and you're almost guaranteed to be sat (within 30 seconds or so) by a bot. I would say play for 15-20 minutes before sitting out and open sitting a new table. Do this a few times and you will realise there is a whole load of players playing the exact same strategy preflop, they have identical bet sizes post flop and similar overall tendencies.
don't get me wrong they aren't very good, but i would bet my life that they are bots.
You won't bet real money on a poker hand but will bet your life they are bots?
FWIW, according to high stakes DB, they are both losing players in tracked games. Maybe the kill it at 10/20 and lower.

40and7 has also been very suspicious. He's been making some plays that humans would never do. For example 4-betting Khigh flush on 4-flushcard boards for value etc. I remember people calling him a fish because of his out of ordinary plays, but clearly hes one of the biggest winners at heads up.
...let me guess, those "same betsizings" are 2,5x pre and 75% postflop? 2,5x pre is the most common open, and 75% pot is default sizing button in the software.
Nope I played for a few hours an found quite a few who was min opening 85-90% of hands from the sb, from the bb they was defending well against 2.2x-2.5x opens. They also do a lot of really weird stuff post flop like min betting loads of flops/turns. Occasionally they would donk lead the flop from the bb for for around pot, but the most common theme of them all was the over bets. They wasn't just smashing the 300% of pot all over the place, they actually seemed to be doing it in reasonable spots.
I actually question if they are even beatable with the rake at play money
Also I tried chatting to a few of them whilst playing and there was no reply. For players at playmoney HUNL to be playing VERY similar is suspicious. They don't seem to differ from the style either, same pot sizes pre/post and overall similar tendencies.
