So in order to determine what output the RNG will produce not only do you need to know the exact time (to the microsecond) in which the number is generated and the game state. You also need to know, for example, exactly how much noise the CPU fan on the FT server was making. So good luck with that.
im no expert on this, but i dont think hes implying you that you should mess with the rng. wouldnt the easiest just be to set up sort of of trojan that lets you see the other players computer?

Re: *** The Official Isildur1 Thread ***

maybe its just a publicity stunt, to draw attention to the greatness (puke) of fulltilt.did the thought ever cross your mind its just one of the fulltilt pros and him and dwan are sitting in the same room laughing their arses off.at the end of the day they just transfer whatever was won back to the loser.after so many days of people accusing this guy of cheating and no proof, i think its time to start exploring other options.

Since everyone is making wild guess as to whats going on im gonna say he is a FTP gimmick to celebrate Durrrr's joining.

When Durrrr makes a dramatic comeback next week or so this will be confirmed..

Yes, it would indeed be far easier to plant a trojan on Durrr's machine than cracking the RNG. However, it would mean he hacked into PA's , Durrr's and DIH's machines , the chance of which is vanishingly small. Anyways, the guy I replied to was refering specifically to cracking RNGs.

wow the ignorance of your post is quite startling. The fact is that nothing i have posted is groundbreaking stuff, all you have to do is a little research and you'll get plenty of evidence regarding the cracking of RNG's. Indeed, even if I specifically laid out how to do it you would lack the technical vocabulary to understand, in the same way that I lack the poker vocab to understand what all the stats you guys talk about are. However, I'll quit this thread because apparently I know nothing and you guys are the experts. All I will say is to remember these posts because somewhere in the future when it comes out that some guy on some site cracked a rng and stole millions off of you poker players your going to remember my posts.

Why would they have durrrr lose like this though. Wouldn't it make more sense to have their newly signed pro win? Durrrr and other FTP pros were destroyed by Isildur making them all look bad.

its just like a movie dude, he loses all this money for sometime, goes back to studying and listening to rocky music and a week or two later he comes back and crushes this fool.in the end dwan is portrayed as the best there has ever been on fulltilt, then a challenge will be issued to anybody thats brave enough to dare play him..etc...etc...etc..fulltilt is a joke..etc..etc..etc..

Re: *** The Official Isildur1 Thread ***

Whats strange is that he remains anonymus, and nobody knows who he is. I know there has been alot of speculation on who it is but usually the truth comes out eventually. I dont ever remember anyone winning this much money in this short of time

I have never seen this before. So he is basicly winning al his money by betting / bluffing in the right spots and getting people to fold?

Re: *** The Official Isildur1 Thread ***

does anyone know where he came from? and I don't mean location wise, but was he a 10/20 player? 25/50? crushing the 5/10? or did he all of a sudden start playing 500/1k? if the latter, has anyone ever done that (except for Guy perhaps) and isn't that suspicious by itself? doe that narrow the range of potential players? a recent EPT or WSOPE winner, etc.? this can't be a mega-fish-rich dude like Cyril

Are you serious? There's a lot of guys who are LOSING a lot in showdowns but still have decent winrates because of their nonsd winnings.

BTW calling more also makes your nonsd better.

Re: *** The Official Isildur1 Thread ***

in order to win all his money by betting bluffing in the right spots, didn't he had to run insanely good at first ? (look at the left of the graph the red line is lower than showdown). This could have given him confidence while in the same time his opponents were loosing theirs.

Given the sheer vastness of space with millions of galaxys, do you think it reasonable to suggest that there is a possibility that somewhere out there 'cheats' might exist ?

Re: *** The Official Isildur1 Thread ***

From Poker Table Ratings:

Isildur1 is looser than 50% of the population at $500/$1000 NL Hold'em (2 max).

durrrr is looser than 50% of the population at $500/$1000 NL Hold'em (2 max).


Isildur1 is more aggressive than 100% of the population at $500/$1000 NL Hold'em (2 max).

durrrr is more aggressive than 0% of the population at $500/$1000 NL Hold'em (2 max).



Isildur1 goes to Showdown more frequently than 100% of the population at $500/$1000 NL Hold'em (2 max).

durrrr goes to Showdown more frequently than 100% of the population at $500/$1000 NL Hold'em (2 max).



Since it is just him and Durrrr at these stakes HU. It just shows he is more aggressive.


---------------------------------------------

But at $500/$1000 NLH SH (where a large portion of his winnings have come from) and 13 other players that make up the population graph at those stakes, it shows:



Isildur1 is looser than 85.7% of the population at $500/$1000 NL Hold'em (6 max).

durrrr is looser than 85.7% of the population at $500/$1000 NL Hold'em (6 max).



Isildur1 is more aggressive than 100% of the population at $500/$1000 NL Hold'em (6 max).

durrrr is more aggressive than 21.4% of the population at $500/$1000 NL Hold'em (6 max).




Isildur1 goes to Showdown more frequently than 71.4% of the population at $500/$1000 NL Hold'em (6 max).

durrrr goes to Showdown more frequently than 85.7% of the population at $500/$1000 NL Hold'em (6 max).


He is also the 3rd most loose player at those stakes. So, he is playing as loose and much more aggressive than anyone ever has at those stakes, and having a much higher win rate (while being so loose) than anyone at those stakes has. It's unreal. How can he have just come on to the scene in Sept. 09 and be playing so LAG at those stakes? So weird to me.
