  • Redistribution of funds

    Firstly, this is not a thread regarding the outcome of the current investigation of Datzang and Sharkattack. I would like it if no comment is made regarding their current status.

    After reading about the investigation it made me wonder what would happen if the outcome were to be unfavourable to the pair of them and as such I sent an email to support asking what will happen to the funds. Here is the reply

    Hello (AlphaAero), Thank you for your email. Please note that this case will be handled as any other collusion case, and after the investigation has been completed and the allegations of cheating are confirmed (or denied), the money will be distributed between the affected players. Feel free to contact us should the need arise. Regards, Kervin D.PokerStars Support Team
    I thought, wow, this is going to be a big mess to sort out!!

    How do other players think the funds will be distributed?

      First, the response is a general response and it applies to Pokerstar tournaments, sng's or cash. It has nothing to do with PokerSchoolOnline.
      Only PokerSchoolOnline will decide what happens.

      Second, why do you even care? Let the situation take it's course

              I would have brought it up if dat and me somehow got screwed. But as I see it. They don't pay out the extra funds left over if a white star makes t200, so, I don't see it being paid out. But, think u guys are jumping the gun here. Dat and I have done nothing wrong. We hope to see ya at the tables as soon as this review is over. -Shark

                You can put all the disclaimers at the front of this post that you want,the mere fact that you felt the need to do so shows that you at least had an inkling that posting this while the issue invoving shark and dat is STILL UNDER REVIEW,was in poor taste. But you felt the need to do so anyway,and try to couch it in context of being little Mr. Helpful. Why am I not surprised?

                And what makes you think ANY descision vis-a-vis this prize money would affect you anyway?

                Does PSO have a Donks Direct Aid Program of which we have not been told?

                  They do, in fact. It's called "Sit at a table with Moxie." umbup:

                      D. EVERYONE already KNOWS about the table with Moxie Donks Direct Aid program. I asked if there was one we did'nt know about.

                        A. True, I should have taken my time and thought more about my reply. From now on I won't reply until I am told "ssuglia, you have 12 seconds to act." umbup: B. When have I ever jumped to anyone's defense? C. Haven't found him... and honestly I'm too lazy tonight to hunt him down. D. A friendly reminder is always helpful. E. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

                          The disclaimer was there because there is another thread already, started by one of the players in question in which people can discuss the ins and outs. This is simply a thread to find out peoples opinions on the remaining funds should the ruling go against the players. I did consider making it a hyperthetical player x and player y type post, but figured that everyone would know what I was talking about anyway. The very fact that Sharkattack has been so open with his position idicated to me that this is in no way a taboo subject and might be interesting to get some suggestions from players.

                          Freerolls for whitestars
                          Freerolls for top 2002
                          Send it to Oxfam
                          bump everyone up a position

                          this is a pertinent current events topic so I don't really get your angle.

                          good luck all

                            It's just that there was no need to bring this up There was no results of wrong doing If there was a negative result, it's not up to you nor players to suggest or decide on the outcome of the money. It's not ours, it belongs to PokerSchoolOnline. It's just looks like you wanted to stir the pot, that's why we're saying there was no need to bring this up. That's all umbup:

                              Valid points.

                              I now I agree that I should have sat on this and waited for the outcome, this would have been better suited as a "what if'" post after the outcome.

                              Hope I haven't caused too much offence.

                              Regards
