Re: Russian 0rganized Crime Group Stealing MILLIONS from poker players on ACR? (COLLUDING)

I beleive there is collusion after watching this. How else would you explain this kind of behavior? You don't need stats when you open your eyes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fogee6J9ZUY

That is incredibly shady.

It could be explained with seating scripts but even so I dont think human players would jump in and out as much.

I would think it would be super easy for someone to do a much better study of this behavior.

Looks to me like youíre getting bum hunted to me tbh
Iíve played with all these Russian accounts up to 25/50 and while the vast majority are 90% nits, bumhunters, grimmers, idk how much actually cheating is going on. Thereís like maybe 5-10 of these Russian accounts that actually battle at high stakes but the rest are just bumhunters, I havenít seen much suspect stuff in the high stakes lobby other than the stuff I just mentioned.

that is 100 percent normal and has been for 10 years. you have people scripting, and many regs are just watching the lobby even while playing. it sucks but people are basically bumhunting .01/.02 now. theres also most likely collusion going on but i dont think thats it.

I don't doubt that there's some kind of collusion going on at higher stakes on these shady offshore sites (ACR/BOL mainly), but it seems way more likely to me that it'd just be a bunch of scumbags in a grind house or something instead of actually being perpetrated by the Russian mafia. Those guys are involved in drug/arms/human trafficking, extortion, prostitution, money laundering, murder-for-hire, etc., all of which have to be way more lucrative than slowly bleeding a bunch of bumhunters

Posting a video of a guy who doesn't have enough money to sit at the table halfway through probbbbbbb isn't the best example lol

Re: Russian 0rganized Crime Group Stealing MILLIONS from poker players on ACR? (COLLUDING)

Well sorry for previous post, I should have read the thread better and personally don't have any knowledge about LHE on acr. Only play up to NL200 there.

The videos people post, those are seating scripts. Basically if you are not a regular the table will fill up when an unknown sits or they will have to play HU or short handed against players that are better than you. It's really not a good look and personally I don't use them, but if I played a higher limit and couln't get to tables easily I probably would use one if it wasn't prohibited on the site.

Judging by the speed they joined, they most likely did not even have scripts, as those would fill almost instantly, there is enough delay in joining that they are probably just watching the lobby, or perhaps they have one set to a delay.

VIEW: OP writes way too much about having a large online following. Seems like he is bluffing. Poor intimidation tactics. Don't get me wrong I hate wpn, and want a cheating scandal to come out in order to validate a year and a half downswing on there, but this aint it.

OP, you said you and your team have been tracking this ring for months. Post some evidence. I don't see any.

Of course there is collusion going on. There's been collusion going on since the beginning of online poker. Every time I play a jackpot SNG and the other two players are from Russian or closeby countries, I put my big boy pants of and prepare for a wild ride

Bro part of the sophistication of this operation, bc its Russian mob based is always cycling the money off the site so if they get discovered not much gets locked up. Besides theyve got a team of guys on there, its easy to get p2p and refill.
