Online Poker, Cheating Could Cost You
All over the world, poker seems to have taken the internet by storm. It’s all over the television, in movies, and it seems to be a good portion of the SPAM I receive each and every day! With such popularity, people are of course flocking to play for themselves, but not everyone has a bunch of friends willing & able to get together for a Friday night game. But this is the internet age, and if it’s worth doing in person, it’s twice as worth doing alone in a room with your keyboard.
Many people would rather play in the privacy of their home, against people they never see in person. There are many reasons for this, as well as many advantages to the poker player Poker88. Fewer distractions, no concerns of your bad poker face, no worries that someone is going to peek over your shoulder and see your cards… or can they? Rumour has it online that it actually is possible to cheat, even at these so-called safe online poker rooms.
While it may be extremely challenging to directly cheat the online poker rooms themselves, it’s less challenging to cheat the other players individually. And not everything is actually cheating either. Many of the techniques that can be learned that are specific to online poker, have more to do with good strategy as well as leveraging the inherent advantages playing online poker has, than they have to do with cheating per se. But there are a few tricks that aren’t talked about much, but that are downright well unethical at least.
It’s a natural attraction. Poker players that have chronically lost money to the game, want a chance to even the score, so they decide to turn to cheating. It’s easy to think that nobody gets hurt when it’s just you and the computer it doesn’t feel like there are real people on the other side of the poker table. The fact is however that there are real people, and you are going to have to deceive them if you want to cheat them out of their money. Numerous techniques have leaked onto the internet recently, and many of them involve cracking the random number generators that the poker sites use, or analyzing thousands of hands of play in order to predict card patterns, etc.
