Tony G is with Coin Poker, after playing on that site, I don't think trustworthy would come to mind.

Re: honest poker players

If we are talking about Recs, then sure, there are thousands of them.

If we are talking about Pros, then it is like we are talking about virgin porn stars: there are a few of them out there, but the condition is only temporary.

I agree. And by the same token, value bets also are deceptive. For when we bet for value we tell our opponent we have a weaker hand than his.
