with all due respect to those who lost big to the "super-users"
Ive been re-reading through the archives at 2+2 and some other sites about the absolute scandal (mainly out of curiousity), there are many players claiming to have lost 100K + to these scumbag cheaters, i can only imagine how frustrating and depressing that must be, it brings me to my question, how can these players putting 50K + on a table be so ignorant to put that much money into a site with no reputation/credibility in the first place? You could make the argument "innocent until proven guilty", but why not take the risk% out of the equation altogether and go to a more reputable/established site? Seriously the only site i would trust more than 10k on is PokerStars
or FT, i would NEVER EVER EVER EVER put this money into a site with trashy easily exploitable software/horrible feedback and no good rep like Absoloute, i wonder what they were thinking?
I have also seen many players claiming that they are dead broke because of POTRIPPER/DoubleDrag etc, i can only ask where the BRM was? You would expect players at this stake to be a little more cautious, we at cardschat are using BRM with mere 3-4 figure BR's, these guys that were playing with 5-6 figure BR's you would think they would have stopped once they lost a certain amount of "big bets" or thought something was fishy?
Seriously even a donk would see that GRAYCAT/POTRIPPER are very dangerous players even after 1 observation, from this they would learn to stay away, i can only assume it was their sheer competetive nature that buried these players, if i was playing such high stakes i would make sure to observe my competetion before play, i would have seen how casually/consistently they were ripping the game and learnt to keep my BR the HELL away from these guys.
I dont mean this post to offend anyone that indeed lost a whole lot of cash to scumbags like AJ Green/Tom Scott, we can only assume/hope these pieces of mold get whats coming to them, until then i can only wonder how these top players could be so careless not to see what was going on before these fools had all their money
