Are you kidding me UB?

I was talking to my friend whose screen name is Forcewithme on the phone today while he was playing UB. I told him I'd sweat him for a few minutes while we were on the phone and pulled up the Lobby. Without realizing it, I logged in as Forcewithme. Apparently when he was at my house last week he played on my computer and saved the log in to my computer. SO when I thought I was logging in as me I actually logged in as him. After watching him play for a few minutes I checked the cashier to see if I had any money in there and saw quite a bit of money and that is when I noticed that I was logged in as him......while he was sitting at 6 tables!!! So I told him that I was logged in as him and he was like, "Are you kidding me?" So we decided to see if I could play some tables and sure enough I sat and played some .01/.02 NL tables while he had 6 tables fired up from his house 100 miles away. We couldn't even believe it. Has it really gotten this bad over at UB?

Re: Are you kidding me UB?

I know people who used to share UB accounts to take advantage of very massive rakeback and often played on the accounts at the same time while logged in from locations miles away. I have never heard of anyone getting in trouble for this. Ub security is terrible and I doubt they would even care if they noticed. Is this really a big deal or even suprising?

Re: Are you kidding me UB?

Well I must say that this disturbs me a little. I just recently started playing at UB after making an account like 8 months ago. Now they are saying I can't cashout because my address is different from the one I registered it with. But I changed my address before I made my deposits into my account so shouldn't everything be fine?

Anyway, I have to go through some inconviences to solve this. Makes me a little confused about their security...

UB has no multiaccounting policy and this has kind of been known for awhile

why would you wish this?

lol at the people who cant figure out what some of the problems with this are

for one, you can be multitabling a cash game against someone, and playing 3 different people on the same screen name, making it impossible to form a read

is the level of common sense here this low?

Re: Are you kidding me UB?

Now that I think about it something like this has happened to me before on UB. I think it's bad because it shows a real incompetence by the software designers, but this specific glitch isn't that big a deal.

you dont think that is a huge problem for people playing high stakes frequently against the same opponents?

if you one table 10NL you are never going to get cheated so why bother giving a **** about any of the shady online stuff..for you to not realize how big of a problem this is really is laughable

Re: Are you kidding me UB?

This is why so many mentor-student set-ups use UB. The mentor can see your cards and your play. Makes it much easier to teach from two locations.

And it supports the new 12 players to a hand rule.

blatantly wrong. if you log in from 2 different sites, you cant access the same tables.
