Because of these bots i can not make money and because of the software who destroys me with ugly bad beats or with bizarre situations. I knew this was happening a lot but many players said it was not true. I would like these guilty persons to be captured and punished with jail. Blink

That shows how serious the issue is with the bots.
Now imagine how many more they might have missed, along with how many bots
can exist in other sites, where they dont have the means, to deal with it.
Good thing to see, that a site is taking this matter seriously.

the presence of bots in poker rooms is of course a big trouble for everyone .... it’s very good that PartyPoker somehow learned to identify them and now accounts are being removed and their funds are redistributed .... I had a situation at PartyPoker when I lost in a row very much many sit and go tournaments to some Hungarian players .... maybe it was a similar case? ... or is it my bad game? Confused

Well done to Party Poker for doing this and they must be applauded for doing this. You always get a suspicion from time to time that one of the people at the tables are bots and it is good to see them being stopped

I received a minus vote again when i'm right. The men who votes does not even know my bizarre situations when players call all in after flop with nothing or after river with one ugly pair and they won. In these situations it is clear that something is wrong and here it exists only two guilty bots or the poker room who does not want to make money. Duck Poker is one of them ( now is disbanded ) but there are a few more who are active but i do not want to give their names because of the rules.

Now, imagine if they did not catch even 5% of the active bots they have on their site. Because I am prettg sure they did not. So the rest is still there outsmarting casual players on a daily basis because that is just how the math works out...

There will always be bots in the poker world and not only.
And this is because the new generations are into the "whole game" internet, programming
etc.
Whilst it was harder some years ago, now it becomes easier and easier to make your own
program.
Most of the kids now almost have a screen attached on their eyes Smile

holy 277 bots and 734k :O Maybe I played against the bots myself. Will PartyPoker give back some money for this, I doubt it. PartyPoker has to deal with software security as well as all other poker rooms. There are many bots in all rooms, and for that reason a lot of players stop playing online cash games.

It is important for a site to be credible, and to get such matters seriously.
Not like some others, where after repeating messages and online chats with their
support, about some obvious collusion in sng's they were doing nothing about it.
How more obvious can it be when you see two players sitting in more than
one tables at the same time, using the chat of the poker client to tell the cards
to each other and play accordingly... Smile After about a month with support i gave up. But they were still up and playing Smile It was an ipoker skin back in the days Smile

scammers in poker will always be of course .... some play tell each other cards ... some use various illegal programs or some other software that makes a game against these players senseless .... of course the poker rooms struggle with it but how It seems to me to catch a fraudster quite difficult ... but it is good that the poker rooms are dealing with these problems

I am disappointed because there is no program to detect these bots. If there is no such thing then one should be invented because customers are the most important. This is inadmissible and many upset players he does not play online poker anymore for this reason. Sad

It is of course good news for players from party poker and to me personally because most my play of poker is in this room. To me also interesting that poker bots beat players most times, it show how bad many players play, because bot play always same rules so if beter player it is not so hard to win i think

Are they really struggle though?
Feels like it's not that hard to find these kind of activites among 'players' since most bots follow certain pattern of behaviour etc. but sites have less incentive to throw them out because they pay the rake just the same, so why bother with them in the first place?

.... Big Smile< ...This thread has shown me that I have been totally wrong... Confused

... Big Smile< ...Actually,...a few folks have suspected that I play like a bot and actually was one...!!!

Think about 277 bots and how much money they've earned, until Party Poker detects and confiscates that money. Then think that they did not manage to catch them all. Unfortunately, the one who votes with minus is parallel to reality, because this news is real and if it was a fake one, then i agreed with his votes. In this situation, i do not agree. Sad

Of course, rake is very important for poker sites ... if it were not for rake, as if they would have a profit ... in any way ... but on the other hand, if there are obvious signs of bots, then you need to do something about it ... otherwise the players will leave this poker site .... go to another where the fight against bots is made .... Here’s such a dilemma for poker sites

If players that get affected get the money back after all, or at least a portion of it,
then it is fine. Now talking about the rake, for a site like party poker, doesnt really make
any difference.
With the amount of players and games they have, the rake is the same for them,
either with bots or not. It is not and advantage for them, having them, in any case.

277 is too much. Think about how much money these bots players played and how much they managed to withdraw. Nobody makes a complaint to the police and of course the Party Poker they should but they do not do it. This is horrible and is not normal.

Yea this is not normal and this is big robbery from PP. They need to return that 734k to players who lose from this bots, I think its not hard to check bots cash game history and every players who lose from them need to get money back. Big big robbery from PP. Gl
