There was quite a lot of deleted stuff in this thread

Re: Unconfirmed claim on Russian forum - Pokerstars superusers/pre-determined tournament winner

This has been a pretty entertaining thread!

Can't say I believe any of it, but having said that, it's wise to keep an open mind on this type of thing in light of all the AP, FT and UB stuff in the past.

Regular auditing of poker sites would definitely be a good thing IMO.

Untrue.

There is a huge difference between asking the author of the post for any proof/to explain the massive inconsistencies in his story, and demanding that PokerStars comment.

The latter is ignorant conspiracy bs, the former is the correct approach to invalidate the .1% chance the thing is true.

Many people immediately questioned PokerStars and started making comments that were akin to the rigtard thread bad beat stories.

PokerStars has never employed anyone even remotely similar to the description provided by the original poster.

There are no 'superusers' on PokerStars and there is no ability to predetermine the outcome of tournaments.

Sincerely,

if you ask edward snowden if it were possible to know the outcome of tournaments, or each game in cash games, what do you think his answer would be?

my suggestion, use ftp's continous shuffle.

Yeah, is there any reason I should read this? The fact that it's open, and four pages long, gives legitimacy to OP's claim. Either this is the biggest news in the poker world or this should be locked or moved to the rigged thread.

[ ] Russian posts claims are backed on solid proof

[ ] Billion dollar corporations are inmune to shady mangement

[X] If technology allow it, greedy CEO's will do anything to make more money and control market/cash flow/risk of their investments (we have 2+ years of solid evidence)

[X] Blind denial of the possibility that PS is crooked is no contribution to this thread, and doesn't prove anything

But conspiracy theories are perfectly worthwhile of course.

I reopened it to post the link to the bit saying the original claim was bogus. But you guys are right, it can be shut back down again.
