The GG Poker network has started a fight against funds. the beginning was laid by the PokerOK showcase and the main network did not stand aside and said that players who are members of the fund will be blocked on their site. What do you think about it?

fund ? That's budget. I think you mean another word.
At least I don't really understand what you are saying

I'm kinda curious about what they mean by "illegal training practices" or why they haven't banned them before if they noticed team play, collusion, soft play, multi accounting and the list of evils goes on or so they say... and what does "ready to blackmail them" even mean?, sounds a little crazy

Yes "fund" is definitly not the word. Maybe he mean stable? Stables are a pretty common thing especially in the high stakes MTT community. At the end of the day poker sites are free to choose, who they will allow to play. So as long as they pay out players their balance, I dont care to much, who they ban or for what reason. If someone is found to have been cheating for a significant amount of money, they should hand over the evidence to the police.

Well to a lawyer 🙃 but even that takes a lot of time . That is also what pokerrooms speculate with . ...
PS for instance is in debt over 1 million in fines from our highest court for years... They operate without a license and therefore players over here can sue for casino losses

The funds he talking about refers to backers who fund players in stables..
it's a direct quote from the Ok poker statement on banning funds and stables.

...they banned a lot of players they say are in stables, they also banned players in the same sweep who aren't in stables.

I don't think banning players who did nothing wrong and play solo is good for business, at least I wouldn't play on a site that banned people that did nothing but they don't let US players play anyway lol

I don't think you're familiar with the funds he's referring to, he means funds as in backers who fund stables.

I thought they were banning all stables, but no only those that break the rules, so basically no meaningful change in policy. Just a bit of restriction on advertising backing.

I think banning stables altogether would be a good idea as there are so many cheaters and opportunities for cheating

I mean organizations that train and give money for the game, but they have to pay a percentage of the winnings, most often it is 50% of the winning amount. below they write such a definition as "stables", we call it a fund
