Yes, but i do not understand why these bots are not being complained to the police? They will try again and until they are discovered will earn money again. It's a terrible chaos in this internet and those who have to lose are generally those who lose money in poker. Sad

Again - any bot discovered in this scheme was just a 'regular paying customer' two weeks ago from the casino's standpoint. They pay the rake just the same so these places won't care until you make them care.

The article says "redistributes" which probably means, giving money back to the players
that were affected by it.
It would have been silly for a site like party poker just to confiscate all that money
and leave their players, that had done nothing wrong, with no compensation at all.
There was another example of this in the past wit a site returning money to the players,
but cant remember which one was it. I think it was poker stars...

Peoples find methods very fast to create other accounts and to use illegal programs. I read in the past more about this. Even Justin Bonomo was caught with multiple accounts in 2006. It is very difficult for us to be successful, if the poker rooms have too many bots. Sad

for me would be strange that they will check every hand and every table,tournament or whatever for every single player from this bots and then to see who losted against them and to payback to this player!this would need weeks for something like this!

I doubt it is that complicated. They will have to check who has played against them,
the buy ins and the result after the end of the game.
And they must be storing more information than the players, get from their own history.
No matter what, they are having the personnel and means to do it.
And they have to after all, since they went out with this announcement.

It's not hard to do that but perhaps Party Poker is not very interested in tracking these bots in every day. If there is such a quick detection program, then it must always to be used. We can not protect ourselves. We do not have this talent to find bots. Only poker rooms can do it.

The only thing you can do is track your games and players.
If you are regular in a sng game for example, at some point you will bump to the same
players. You cant avoid them here.
In cash games though, you can avoid sitting on the same table with some specific players,
that you are suspecting their play is not normal.

first is question do they want to track every hand and every tournaments from this bots accounts and what will be from this cases!maybe they have in their rules,that they dont have to pay money after this kind of problems and other players dont have to know about it and to know names of this bots!

The only guilty in this case are the ones who deals with the laws. A hard law for bots which would start from 10 years of imprisonment or more will stop this phenomenon in most cases. We have to make a request for a law like this and this law to be adopted. Blink

Very rarely i made this mistake. I think one or maybe twice from the fall of 2017. Instead, i've seen a lot of the wrong moves in online poker and of course... the software offered to other players the right cards and they win on the turn and river. I lost dramatically many strange hands and it is clear that: I played with bots and many do not understand this. I also receive minus votes on my righteousness.

The thing that you have played games and you got some "strange" cards on turn and river,
doesnt mean you were playing against bots.
It is not normal, for a real player to make the wrong moves ?
There are all sorts of players out there, and everyone is playing the way they want
Especially on low limits you can see everything from real players Smile

I played against bots many times. I can swear with precision and their moves say everything. I'm not talking about the beginning of the games. I'm talking about tournaments and after 4-5 hours they had strange moves. Even beginners do not make these moves. No, it's not normal for them to make these moves. You can not pay all stack, after the flop, my all-in with nothing. I'm sorry because this google translate is execrable but there are other strange moves and it's not normal. Anyone who knows a little poker knows these things.

And what makes you say this.
You mean the normal play, for all players is the one that follow your guide lines? Smile
So everyone else outside them is either a bot or doesnt know how to play? Smile
AT the end if you still think so, just take the time and contact the site you are playing.
Not hard to give them the heads up. Why arent you doing this, since you are so
sure about it...

You do not understand. I can not explain well if we do not speak the same language and this translate is too weak. What i want to explain is: These things is what you see only in movies or as in the final with Isildur1 and Pavel Plesuv from Moldova ( last hand ). Nobody plays in that way, except bots. Sad
