I don't doubt you are profitable or not.
And I understand that you will make this program play almost identical to your true play.
So let's analyze it:
Do I think this is a good idea?
Yes. I do.
Will it work?
Yes it will. (or it should if you do it right)
So what's the problem?
The poker sites
have access to your harddrive.
They know what you are running when you have the poker client running.
This type of program is against their T&Cs.
They will close your account. They will confiscate ALL the money in that account.
That's where I was going with my Original Post.
If you are from one of the forums I suspect you are from, I suggest that you make a "gnome" account, run up the post count in the Off Topic lounge for a few weeks, then post your question there.
You will get about 15 stupid responses, but you might, just might get one good one. Which is exactly why I believe you are here.
You know that.
Seriously dude, it just isn't worth it.
To make any decent money at it. You would have to have some sort of roll on there, and the amount you make vs the risk of having it confiscated is just too -EV to even try it.
It just MIGHT work on a smaller site, but again, I still think it's too -EV.
Good luck dude.
