re: Poker & Victim of colluding
think i posted on here somewhere in one of those pitbull poker bashing threads about collusion. that happened to me once at pitbull but it was just a 10 cent sng....3 people. i just didn't play there anymore after...i knocked one of them out at least and cashed for my little 20 cents or whatever it was.
i just figured it was 3 assholes who wanted to give it a shot...test the waters at the micro-micro-micro stakes on a lame ass site. they weren't that good, even with 3 of them, i don't think they were good enough that it would work out for them unless they improved their game. really tight till there were 5 or 6 ppl left. then the one that was stacked would raise big, get re-raised by one of the other ones, he'd call, check/fold to their little bet, and they'd giggle about it. then they'd try to bully everyone's blinds, i guess it worked because the other ppl got impatient and busted out. i just started shoving, the weakest stacked one was next to me so he couldn't risk it. if i remember, i knocked out the former big stack after he re-loaded the weak stack. he couldn't let go of his pair of aces he hit against my 2 pair.
my take on it would be...if i hooked up with someone and tried to cheat, i don't exactly think it would be *that* easy to just take the thing over. that's my opinion...even in a sng. in a mtt, they would still have to final table or be at the same table at once and it shouldn't make too big a difference. its usually lousy players i would guess that would take a shot at that...which of course, is why they'd do it. it would take a few all ready decent players as far as i'm concerned
