  • Is this collusion?

    Durring a game today a player (Link2Me) entered the chat box and told another player to go allin against me and another player who is on around the same pts as him is this allowed? and if its not what is the penalty for it.
    Link2me [observer]: right on woody keep playing all in agianst steve and de hitman
    I would class this as very un-sportsmanship play as i dont no the player and he is in direct competition with me as were on the same amount of pts in the top 50, Has this player done this to any-one else in the league? if so i think he needs reporting for it.

    that type of chat is 100% unacceptable. Pls send the hand history with chat to support.

      Like JW said..unacceptable.
      The penalty will be a chat ban, (or possibly just a warning if this is their first offense) as support sees fit. The bans will increase in length for each offense, until the maximum of a permanent expulsion from pokerstars is reached. This is why it's so important to reach support at every offense that you encounter. Eventually, these players will be playing elsewhere.

      Link, I'm not sure if you have a forum ban because I haven't seen you lately. As someone who attempted to help and befriend you when you came to the pso, I will ask you to calm down. Lately your actions in the forum and tables has taken a turn for the deplorable. If you can't compete with someone at the tables, don't ask others to do your work for you. This is a community of respectable and friendly people. Deceptive talk is one thing at the tables, but collusion and insults are just not part of the game, or acceptable.

      To report this, like JW said, email chat@pokerstars.com with the hand history from this game, which will include all chat. You may also send your info to support@pokerschoolonline.com , they are pretty good at keeping tabs on people who continuously disrupt the community.
      Best o' luck!

                I found that line quite amusing.

                So would he be the pot, or the kettle?

                      Seems to be a collusion profusion.

                      Glad to see all the campers are still happy.

                        Hmmm, I think both players shown to be colluding in this thread need reporting.

                          Yep. It's collusion.

                          Also, thanks to CrumbyCondomz, it's very, very funny.

                          In that "there are a bunch of people here that ignore the rules" kind-of-way.

                          Eff me. No matter how goofy this place gets, all I can think is that I really want to get back here and play for real again. Soon.

                          Thanks for making me laugh, folks. This thread is an instant classic.

                          30 peeps told me so.

                            Black stones throwing kettles in pot glasshouses, hope that the rolling moss gathers no stone on its way to the report submission.

                            Think this one deserves a double face palm.

                              LOL Bog

                              Collusion: another bugbear of mine, along with abuse at the tables and rife in the PSO league at the moment.

                              Fair play to Dan for speaking up about Link2me and kudos to Cookies for highlighting the double standards of the OP

                              As Dan says report it, the sooner these type of players are chat banned or face the ultimate sanction of being removed from the site the better.
