Online Poker Poker Bot
scandal may be nearing an end as the world's second largest online poker room, Online Poker, performed a wholesale sweep of more than 1400 accounts they caught using poker bots.
Online Poker Sites implemented a new online poker algorithm a few weeks ago to detect poker bots and has decided to aggressively pursue users that operate such rogue software. An email from Full Tilt Poker to users warned and banned their accounts for use of poker bots
A poker bot is a piece of software that essentially can play the game of online poker without any human interaction. Because a poker bot posses the knowledge of correct strategy and lacks the inclination to go on tilt as humans often will, a poker bot is considered cheating by the poker sites, including all major Online Poker Sites Poker and Pokerstars.
One company has blatantly provided poker bots to players at a relatively inexpensive price, thereby making it profitable for anyone to use such software. Online Poker bots
were easily obtained and used without any interaction from the online poker site. Until the implementation of online poker algorithms, most users were getting away with cheating online poker.
The poker bot crisis has long been reported on by Gambling911.com.
Several reports in the past year or two have surfaced as news organizations investigated and warned players of the poker bot scandal. One prominent report even stated that human players will always lose as proven by the University of Alberta's Computer Poker Research Group (CPRG) the first developer of a working poker bot.
One of the most effective methods that online poker sites, such as Online Poker and Pokerstars has in detecting poker bots are the online poker algorithms
used as part of their poker client. However, those algorithms are only so effective as they are also the cause behind many bad beats and a lot of improbable winning hands.
The solution for players who may be involved against a poker bot is simply to understand how those online poker algorithms
work and how to adapt your game against such situations. Although many experts may disagree whether a human has the ability to beat a poker bot
, the reality is that the poker sites have software which prevents the poker bots from winning consistently.
That same software, also known as an online poker algorithm, is what will assist a player in winning against poker bots. It is in learning how online poker algorithms work
that makes it possible for a person to become more capable of winning, even against a poker bot.
Although the poker sites do not want to openly admit the use of poker algorithms anymore than they will admit openly about the latest poker bot scandal, the truth is that by learning how those algorithms work is the real solution to winning in online poker.
