re: Poker & Fraud in online poker
Fraud in online poker real - Collusion
The most common form of fraud in online - collusion. Two or more players tell each other about their hole cards and act as a team. Organize a conspiracy easily. Enough to call a friend or write in Skype and invite him to join the same table where you play .
Playing with multiple accounts
Another tricky type of fraud where one person creates multiple accounts in the poker room and acts with them at the same time at the same table. This is a very complex and expensive option, which makes sense to resort, playing only at very high rates. Servers, individual ip-address, mask, all this requires a large cash investment. More often than not a conspiracy - a pair of unscrupulous players who play at the same table simultaneously talking on a cell phone.
Controversial issue, but it is believed that a good programmer with a strong desire can create a poker bot that will consistently make a profit at the tables at the lower rates.
