OK, I hate to even post this because most think I'm wack-o after my "5 card flop" post. I'm 68 Nov. 27, married to a great woman for 47 years, 2 children, 7 grandchildren, been there, done that, no need to waste my time with tall tails. Just thought maybe some would like to be informed of online poker mis-happenings.
Will here is another one.
I just played the $1000.00 freeroll on bodog. Table 263. The "player" to my lift had NO NAME, folded every hand. I played at that table for about 10-15 hands. This players NAME NEVER SHOWED. Others in chat also could not believe it. Some said it must be rigged. I don't think so because this "player" never played a hand, just another software screw up.
I have attached three pictures I took with my camera, (I don't know how to take a screen shot?)(???) They are not too clear & I hope they are included with this post.
I am very sure that these online sites can screw up now and then. DLMoose:cool:

To take a screen shot:

Press the Print Screen/SysReq key (which is to the right of F12, above "Insert" on most keyboards). Open up an image editing program (my favorite is Paint, because it's easy and quick to load). Then press Ctrl+V, or go to Edit>>Paste. Then save the image to wherever.

Thats weird, the guy didn't play a single hand either?

And as for taking screen shots, just press the print screen button(It's somewhere on the upper right of the keyboard), and then open up any photo editor(ms paint works), and hit paste.

Dang, Dotde beat me to it.

New at this CP thing. I see it now right in front of me. Next time (hope not). You can make out where the no name is. :cool:

Moose, you can also use Paint to resize these pics that you posted.

To do that, go to Paint, the click Edit, then "Paste From...". Go to your pics and choose the one you want to edit. It will pop up in the Paint program. To resize, go to Image, then Stretch/Skew. Knock it down about 50% or so (both length and height). That should bring it down to a more viewable size. When you save your edited pic, be sure to save it as a .jpg or .jpeg file, as those are the easiest to upload here.

Hope that helps.

OK Moose, I got ya covered on this one as I have seen it several times. I've been meaning to call bodog support...just haven't gotten around to it. By the way, I have kicked "no name's" tail on several occasions so I'm not sure whether it's sigificant or not.

There is probably no reason that someone could not have a null string or an unprintable character as a name. If there is only one noname, isn't that unique? Like Captain Nemo.

Perhaps I have a possible explanation....

I have been in live tournaments where late registration is allowed until the first break, which is about an hour.

To allow for late registrations, and to insure that late registrations are not given an advantage, the casino places a number of stacks on several table for the late comers. The blinds are taken from these stacks in turn.

When a late comer arrives, they are given one of these stacks.

During the first break, the unused stacks are removed.

Perhaps, a similar process was underway during the online tournament. These proxies for the late registration would not have a name and would not play any hands.

I have never seen it online, but new things are introduced every day. I will email support and ask them why "no name".:cool:

I've come across this situation several times and it has baffeled me as to how this "user" could not have any data on him.

I figured it was a Bodog Prop... Why a Prop in a play money games? I reconned that it was to test software. But what do I know...

bodog support answer.

I did call support. They looked up the table and all hands I played. They told me they showed no player without a name and told me I was "experiencing a slight display issue". I told them I could see that for one hand but not 10-15 hands plus some other players did not see any name for this player either. Support INSISTED that it was a "slight (10-15 hands display issue for all of us. Go figure:rolleyes: :cool:
