so many times I've made posts about some of the fishy happenings on poker site...and all too often the response from players is something like " it doesnt happen that much".....and "the sites catch them" or "that only happens in high stakes, so I dont have to worry" ect....
it does happen often..... (any time there's money involved, some people will try to steal it...especially when there's basically no consequences even if you get caught red handed ...ie: has anyone been punished in any form from the AP or UB cases ? NO !
the sites only catch the stupid or careless..... (poker site security is pretty lax.... ie: a 10 yr old can make a dozen accts from same connection, same puter, on the same day, then go an reg all those accts in the same MTT)
and dont think for a minute that small stakes aren't worth their time,...a well organized ring can make a crapload of money from micro-stakes....
cheating in any
form takes place online, be it from collusion, multi-accounting, or tecnological in nature... it not only increases the odds
that you personally will be ripped off......but it also threatens the game itself.... enough of it and the numbers of honest players will diminish and you'll be left with an even higher concentration of players working together.....not too mention that every instance only provides more ammo for those that would like to ban online poker
(on that voronezh site there was another post (from site admin)about how and where you could get fake passports made ....I'm assuming that's because when you try to cash out, alot of poker sites want photocopies of ID if you hadn't previously deposited)
