I used to beat the drum for years that Doyle Brunson was a cheat, and through simple logic most of the old school vegas pros were likely cheats and I got shouted down by Rounders fanboys who had signed copies of super system and said everything I was saying was just slander. And I just laughed and shook my head. These days, I've seen you make several long posts on the issue and no one even bothers to speak out against them. Maybe it's just because FCP is so dead that there's no one left even to take issue. But I think part of it is that people aren't quite as naive as you think they are anymore. In 2007? No doubt . But after online company after online company rips people off, Poker Legend after Poker legend are revealed to be irrefutable thieves that the cognitive dissonance required to defend these degenerates simply becomes too difficult to maintain.
LOL lets see some old posts over the course of "years" with you "beating the drum" about brunson being a cheat. these rants about the corrupt nature of poker in general from you, scram, and sklansky are really hilarious. sounds like three losing players to me.

At least, with corporate fraud, embezzlement and the like, there are laws against it. Fines that can be levied. Theoretical punishments. THey may not be enforced, but the laws are there. There's NOTHING illegal about marking a deck of cards at a casino. Nothing illegal about getting on skype with 3 friends and colluding in an online room. No punishments. No consequences.
wow this gets worse and worse. i mean, what the hell are you talking about? and what is motivating this weird tirade about the poker world. people get away with all sorts of shit in every field. and many don't. and it has little to do with legality. but this is lost on you.and i don't get it, it's ok for people to get away with things as long as there are laws against it that aren't enforced? what a strange idea. as long as the laws are there? laws aren't there if they aren't enforced...a casino will kick out someone marking cards. poker sites have for the most part always done what they can to get rid of colluders when they have some evidence of the act. should it be illegal to collude on some third party poker site? its already against the rules of the poker site... wtf... you really think there should be federal laws or something against collusion on poker sites?you have played online poker before right?

Sounds like a complete fucking retard to me.The developmental trajectory of the poker world and the naive retards its scalped in the process is what's hilarious. Whether the 'old Vegas poker crew' were cheats or not isn't even a matter of debate. They were. Most have admitted to as much, if you know any of them personally (or know anyone who knows them), that era is openly discussed/mocked when there aren't any cameras around. Of course, when the cul-de-sac kids needed gods to lord over this new poker world they stumbled into, that part didn't quite fit in with the squeakier ethics of the new guys, so they pretended it didn't exist.The corrupt nature of online poker has to be the most amusing, though. Corkies like you howled and shouted for YEARS that online poker was pure as the driven snow, created all sorts of contorted narratives as to why it 'wasn't in the best interests' of poker sites to be dishonest... Then, UB/AP.Oh, but that was an outlier! Surely, HOWARD LEDERER, CHRIS FERGUSON and ISAI SCHEINBERG can be trusted!When the economic pyramid collapsed, the narrative changed, but still, the same old retarded Pollyannas, skipping through the snakes, anyone who points it out IS JUST A LOSING PLAYER HAHAHAHA. It's like you couldn't be any more fucking dumb if you sat down and drafted a nine point strategy entitled "How I could be any more fucking dumb"

I sense this thread is heading for a bump in epicness

who are you replying to here? it couldn't be me. i don't even understand what you're going on about. i never thought online poker was pure. no serious people did, unfortunately for your wild story. anyone who plays poker online, which has been technically illegal for a while now, knows they are putting their money at risk. just losing players and weaklings in general who complain about this stuff.and it IS in the best (long term) interest of poker sites to be legit. but people don't always see or follow their best long term interest. the fact that there have been scams doesn't change anything. it was predictable and it proves the rule. full tilt makes more money in the long run if they were still legit, even if they get away with everything. they blew it. i dont see how this whole story of old world gambling shootouts and train robberies relates. a few of these corrupt poker pros ran tilt. but things like enron, worldcom, and bernie madoff happen in entirely regulated, domestic, "respectable" fields as well. so...the poker world today is mostly just honest people playing a card game. yours and bigDs conspiracy theories not withstanding.

You are completely misunderstanding my point. I wasn't arguing that there should be laws against colluding. I am saying that there are no consequences against cheating, no real ones, no punitive ones. And because of that, there is absolutely no incentive for people not to cheat, other than the starry eyed hope that everyone can just agree that cheating is wrong. A casino kicking someone out isn't punishment for theft. Sending someone to jail is punishment for theft. Kicking someone out of a casino is an inconvenience. Getting banned from a poker site is an inconvenience. Those aren't punishments. Listen, I know people will steal even if there are risks involved with it. But there are no risks involved with cheating, particularly in a live, public poker room. The very, very worst thing that will happen to you is you get kicked out. Who is that going to deter? At least online you risk losing the money you stole from people ( that you kept online). A live poker room will even let you walk out with your money. If they even give enough of a shit to kick you out. Because do you really think casinos care about poker cheating? As long as you're paying the rake, casinos are happy. The only time the eyes in the sky bother to watch anything that goes on in a poker room is if there's a jack pot, or there's some dispute between players about one literally taking money off another's stack. Other than that, I promise you there's not a man hour being spent watching the poker room, because if cheating is occurring, it's not the casino's money that's being stolen. Not that the eyes in the sky could even catch things like soft collusion.Also, I think you're probably taking this personally because you consider yourself an honest poker pro, and you think I'm suggesting the only way you can win at poker is to cheat. I don't think that at all. But I do think, that if you've played at any level live other than the very lowest, that you've been cheated by people who don't share your rigorous objectivist ethics. And you're making a large error if you think everyone in the poker world shares your ethical code.
