  • Cheat alert !

    I alledge (careful choice of word there) that all is not as it should be in the satellites and have therefore submitted a report to support that I believe will show active same table multi accounting.

    No names unless and until my allegation proves founded. So just make sure you watch what EVERYBODY'S doing on your table.

              Help is on it's way SAP. It appears that there is agreement on the need to fully investigate this one Hello Darkman61, Thank you for your mail. Based on a preliminary review of the situation you reported, a complete review of the players involved has been initiated. This will include checking on relationships, location and play. Depending on our findings, the players may be contacted and asked to explain relationships and/or play. The entire process generally takes up to 2 weeks, but can be delayed if we don't receive prompt responses. The poker specialist handling this review will contact you directly when the review is complete or if there are unusual delays. Thank you for your patience while we complete this process. Regards, PokerStars Support Team Watch this space umbup:

                What a shame Well if it's true Dman then i think it's sad. I really enjoy the 1k monthly added tourney. It's 1 of the tournaments left that has a good field - good banter - and you tend to know most players who compete in it. Abit like the old PSO league comp. So if some1 is sad enough to cheat in order to win an $11 ticket then they need stopping. Sterling work old boy. B umbup:

                  Oh it's true mate. I don't make such allegations lightly....................

                  "Hello Alan,

                  Again, thank you very much for your report. Our review of
                  'codypie01' and 'B_Swizzle81' is now complete. We confirmed a
                  relationship and found that they did go easy on one another
                  (known as soft play) on occasion. This is a violation of our
                  tournament rule #20 as posted at:

                  http://www.pokerstars.com/tournamentsrules.html

                  We have the advantage of being able to replay the games with all
                  cards exposed. We carefully reviewed all events in which at least
                  one of the two finished in the money. As a result of our
                  findings, players who were likely harmed by the unfair play have
                  been advanced and have received credits consistent with their new
                  finish position. Because we found reason to believe that they
                  were not aware of the seriousness of the unfair play, the cost to
                  advance these players has been paid by PokerStars. You finished
                  7th in T#444365630 behind both 'codypie01' and 'B_Swizzle81'. As
                  such we have advanced you into 5th and I have credited your
                  account with $10.00 to reflect your new finish.

                  It is not uncommon to find that players are not aware of the
                  seriousness of such action in tournament play. The overall
                  review, which included requests for explanations from the players
                  and consideration of all account information, led us to conclude
                  that their action was not malicious. Therefore they will be
                  allowed to continue playing on the site. That said, we did take
                  action to see that they do not play in the same Sit & Go
                  Tournaments in the future, or at the same cash game table for
                  that matter.

                  The integrity of our games is of utmost importance as is fair
                  resolution of situations such as this. Our primary concern is to
                  assure our players of a fair and secure environment in which to
                  enjoy online poker. Your vigilance in noticing the situation and
                  reporting your concerns are appreciated. Please don't hesitate to
                  let us know anytime you have questions or concerns.

                  Regards,

                  Bret W
                  PokerStars Game Security Team"

                  Now. Let me say that had these guys been found innocent I wouldn't have named them. Similarly, had they been booted from the site they would have remained nameless. However. The action that's been taken against them, or more specifically "hasn't", means you need to know who they are. Although I can appreciate that steps are now in place to prevent these people easily cheating others again, they are still allowed to play the game in which I found them out.

                  So if you're playing the satellites tonight, you might want to pay a little extra attention to what's going on if they both land on your table.

                    So as a customer are you pleased with the outcome or do you think more should have been done?


                    "It is not uncommon to find that players are not aware of the
                    seriousness of such action in tournament play"


                    The above is my main issue with how they conduct investigations.
                    This response will be the response if its their first violation or 6th.

                          Very good investigative work Darkman.

                          However, if anyone does see them playing at the same table again then there should be serious consequences for both.

                          I do remember someone posting a link for the reasoning behind allowing such instances to be treated leniently by the guy that is in charge of the Poker room, Lee something or other. I remember thinking he is making some reasonable points here.

                          However, if there ever a second occurrence then these players should have their accounts terminated.

                          Cheers,

                          TC

                              Yes and I know more will be done if it reoccurs

                              Question about your last comment, do you have proof of this or are you just assuming?
