This is a discussion on Bots at the tables?? within the online poker forums, in the Online Poker section; hello poker friends !!! I have a question, is it true that pokerstars play bots at the tables? that's the comment there is !!!
thats the million dollar question! the poker community seems to be divided on this. some swear bots are there 100%. others are not sure, others think corporations cannot possibly be that money hungry to do this. take a pick.
Ww all know there ate bots being used on poker sites. That is the main reason i dont play
cash games online. That and other unfair advantages- But are you asking if Pokerstars itself
uses bots on its site?
If there is a site with the best chances of having no/less bots than it is Pokerstars. But it has high rake and less rakeback, that makes other sites more interesting even when there are bots or other bad things

Welcome to our community.
Maybe yes, maybe no, but it's not really crucial. If you are a skilled and experienced player, you can always pick up your share of the prize pool. Please pay your attention to our free course and no bots will threaten you. https://www.cardschat.com/become-a-w...-poker-player/
I hear all the time from a player at a table swearing there's a Bot at the table usually it's from a player who just lost a hand to the player they're accusing of being a Bot I've also heard that the sites use Bots to fill empty seats to balance out the tournament but who really knows. The site surely isn't going to admit it uses them
I think there are not. And that's what I want to believe because if you don't, you don't want to play poker anymore. It would extract the essence that makes it so cute. Although when very rare hands pass and with sooo little chance of losing, and we end up losing, one has his doubts ahahah
There are Bots period, and if anyone tells you there are not then they are full of it. All you really got to do is go play some mid stake cash games and get back to me on what you figure out. Bounce around from table to table, sit out a few hands, get back in and just see how the behavior give them away. On another note, the sites are 100% trying to combat them at all times. If they were not they would be overran by bots. As long as there are computers involved there are always going to be people out there trying to outsmart the systems.
The presence of bots, team players and super users is disadvantageous to such large companies. This will entail great risks, loss of reputation, scandals and the departure of many famous and regular players.
However, it should not be ruled out that there are any security holes in the system and some users can exploit it. In any case, I do not play and do not advise anyone to play cash games online. Freerolls, MTT and Sit & Go tournaments are created in a fair structure for all participants. The game in them is not so tricky and more straightforward. I like this kind of poker, I hope you too.
Poker apps already take a big part of money with the fees... they should not have to use bots to make more.
That being said, in Québec we already had someone winning too often in a "random" game (not poker). In the end, they discover that the software was not "so" random. I don't remember if they found if it was on purpose or not... but (IMHO) it is quite easy to put something in the software to give some advantage to "favored" players. No accusation... just doubt!!!
Yeah I think there's a big difference between sites having their own bots and a programmer throwing together some code and multi-tabling it.
Maybe I'm just too entrenched in the world of Forex and know how difficult it is to throw together profitable programs, but I don't see them as a major issue.
It seems like they would be easily exploitable in the long run with only a few of them running a profit consistently.
Using automated players (bots) in a poker room is a gross violation of the PokerStars license agreement. The security service of the poker site has developed a number of tools that help to accurately determine artificial intelligence.
Using these tools, experts process player profiles, after which they can make an informed decision about whether they use prohibited software or not. For example, it is possible to distinguish between using a keyboard and mouse by a person compared to using an automated program.
I think it happens. I dont think the pokerroom itself risks killing the goose that lays the golden eggs. Not all bots are cash winners, the easiest way to make money is to sell bots to people who want to get rich quick. It’s hard to complain to the BBB about not getting a refund on your bot that doesn’t actually win money in violation of the rules.
I don’t think this can happen at pokerstars because it’s too big a room and you can lose too much if it turns out.
But nothing can be ruled out or refuted until the contrary is revealed.
I think anything can happen but maybe Pokerstars is an exception i hope.
Casinos make millions and millions of dollars so there is no way that they would use prop players right?? Why wouldn't online poker sites use bots like casinos use prop players. No matter how much money a site or casino makes the ultimate goal is to make more money. Those that argue that "poker sites make so much money why would they use bots" is obviously very naive. I don't care how much money someone or something makes, it is never enough.
Wich the chance of the worlderst larger plataform of poker have something like this??
in my opinion have a lot of people who talk things that dont really know about the sites of poker. if have bots and someone just say that with proves no one would like to play there anymore. without counting that pokerstar if you really look the way the site wins money you will see that they dont need to put boots to win more money.
