How do you arrive at 80%.... & 80% of what? This 80% of whatever sample size it is you're speaking of, also 'never' loses? That sounds kinda unbelievable.
I don't think I'd feel bad for someone who was playing HU cash vs. a bot. I think I'd feel sorry for them if they couldn't beat a bot in HU cash & are actually a HU cash player.
lol, no kidding. A bot should be extremely easy to beat HU because they are pretty much the definition of predictable. The only way you're going to be having problems is if you are terrible HU.
Also, I kind of doubt that there is a huge bot ring going on at the HU games on Merge(granted, I do not play them, so I can't say this for 100%). HU games would be about the worst games to try to make a profit with a bot with anyways because:
1. They aren't as popular as FR or 6m
2. You'd have to play more to gain more(problem when there aren't as many running)
3. Because the bot is the sole opponent, it is going to be much more noticeable as being suspicious than if in a FR or 6m room where there are others to concentrate on as well.
