Online Poker Cheating

Posted by hasnainkhatri on February 22nd, 2020

Online poker cheating can be done, but there is no incentive for an online poker site to let it happen or even participate in the scheme. They make their money from the rake they get from each hand and the more hands of poker that are played means they collect more money. More players on a site lead to more games and more games means more hands dealt and more money collected. Since this is the case, players can assume that good sites monitor play to catch players who are trying to cheat the game.

They have algorithms in place to catch partner play and that is pretty much the only form of cheating that can go on. Two players could be on the phone and be in the same game. They could tell each other what they have and the one player could raise in order to build the pot for the player with the better hand. This pattern is not easy to catch, but it can be defeated by the simple method of folding hands that are consistently raised by one player who then folds their hand. The other way to combat this scheme is to report your suspicions to the site and let them monitor the players that you cheating device

Most live casino players do feel that the dealing algorithm is not as fair as most sites claim. It does seem to favor aces more than any other card value. This may not be factually true, but that is the perception that live cash players have when comparing online play with live cash play. This perception could be caused by the fact that an online game is going to have more hands dealt per hour than are dealt in the same hour of play in a live game.

Another reason that some players feel they are being cheated is easy to see. They are terrible players with no concept of money management and when to call and when to fold. It is no wonder that they lose with such consistency. They are just really bad players who are not willing to learn the game correctly.

The sites that are popular with players all over the world have a vested interest in running a clean game with no hint of any schemes being allowed. It is just not in their best interest to let this go on.
