copied off p5s/2+2, i find this funny someone could guess his password, i wonder what it was.
Yes, my account was hacked. I had been playing earlier in the day, as I had VIP matches at 11am, 12pm, and 1pm. I then was playing the weekly TLB match against Shaun Deeb at 2pm. I did play all those matches, failing to cash in all the VIP matches, but managing to win in the TLB match, where I played heads-up limit 5-card draw for the first time ever. I have played some limit 5-card draw before, but not HU.
Anyway, I then went upstairs to watch my buddy Rocco Mediate on TV as he was trying to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational Golf Tournament (he finished 2nd to a super-hot Vijay Singh), and I then went to the driving range. While there I got phone calls from my Dad, my wife, and PokerStars security. So, I rushed home and dealt with things.
It appears that this ikeyrson bastard managed to guess my password after making multiple attempts. He then played like an idiot as you are all aware, blatantly dumping chips from my account to his account. Based upon dozens of emails sent to PokerStars security, they jumped in and froze his account. So, all of my money will be returned, and he gets nothing. PS isn't allowed to tell me this guy's real name (if it is his real name, whatever it is he used to create his relatively new account). If anybody out there finds out who it is, feel free to share his name. I'll be more than happy to try and make sure that every online and live poker room in the world bars him permanently.
So, in summary, account hacked, hacker caught and account frozen, all money safe, I really did go only 1-3 this morning/early afternoon in my VIP and TLB matches.
Thanks to all of you who helped me by alerting PS security.
