The middle ace is a pixel too high, which would never happen if it were legitimate.Hello Tomas,
Thank you for your Email. We have seen this before, and can say with
certainty that the image there is a fake.
T# 14705493 was the $10 + $1 Deep Stacks tournament held on 12th
November 2005. The top four players in this event were:
The player "Big Devin" didn't take part in this tournament.
Next, you can see the observer "style12" in chat on the table. "style12"
is not a User ID on our database as of June 2006 -- he doesn't exist.
There are also two hands mentioned here. One is # 3044245011 and the
other # 3044243120. I've attached them both below so that you can see
the hands as they originally happened. As you can see, the chip
stacks are totally consistent from one hand to the next. Further
more, "Big Devin" didn't take part.
Finally, it is clearly demonstrable that the image has been edited.
Attached please find a closeup of several of the cards on the screen.
If you look closely, you'll see that the ace of clubs is one pixel too
high. The prankster that tried to run this hoax was not quite careful
enough with his editing and left this evidence behind.
I hope that this sets your mind at ease, but if you have further queries,
please do not hesitate to let us know.

That's an idea for a new PS theme - make all the cards aces, and call it the "All Aces" theme... then you would have to guess what's an ace and what isn't...I've seen this before too. Notice how long ago the hand #'s were too. I don't think it would have taken this long. Also if one really wanted to fake this they could replace a few cards with aces in their image files and then the board would have looked more legit.
