You know I never would of put the phone on my mind but you can get some dirty B's that would do it.and also on the phone thing you can get a conference thing going too.4 people to clean up or whatever.
That would suck in poker if it worked.
I don't see how you could ever spot this type of cheating.BingoT said:You know I never would of put the phone on my mind but you can get some dirty B's that would do it.and also on the phone thing you can get a conference thing going too.4 people to clean up or whatever.

If two or more people are sharing info over the phone, by live chat in another window, or even sitting in the same room with a separate PC and IP connection each - how on earth could you tell? More importantly the poker room could not detect it either.
I expect this type of activity is very widespread in online poker which is why I only play low limit games just for fun.
If I was a high limit poker player I would be VERY cautious about playing it online...
Don't know how you managed that, as it's impossible to do, you get a pop-up telling you that someone from that computer/IP is already sitting at the table. You telling porkies?tantalos said:It's not SO hard as some of you may think.
I tried to do it once, and I found out that it ACTUALLY WORKED :
I logged in at a William Hill's Poker-Table, $1/$2 Limit. You may know that William Hill, Interpoker, Betfair (and some other sites I am unaware of, although I know they exist) share the same poker tables.
I also have an account at Interpoker and logged in , seating at the VERY SAME table I had sat just a minute ago, with my WH account.
And there I was, at a 6-ring table, with 2 accounts of mine at the same time.
I stayed on line for 15 mins, played 3-4 hands, and then quit. I didn't want to risk being tracked down and banned from both Poker Rooms - I enjoy being their member .
So I guess, in case you have one account in all (three? Four? Five? More?) Websites that share the same poker rooms, you can take 5 out of 6 seats of a poker table at the same time ...
The big question is, how do all these Cryptologic Poker Rooms deal with this problem?

Well why do it then, I just tried it on a fun money table, and I got the exact message I've seen before on real monery tables telling me that there is already a player from my IP playing at the table.tantalos said:I am a rather busy man and I have no time to waste visiting Poker Forums and telling/writing nonsense.
You want to believe it, good. You don't, see if I care. That's what happened to me TWICE - actually the second time I told everyone at the table that I had 2 seats of the table occupied, and they were all amazed. And I thought about sharing it with you people, just to be more cautious next time you enter such poker rooms (as I have been, from that day ).
But for all I care, you , fatshaft, can keep believing that "that is impossible to do".
As I wrote above, I enter this forum strictly to gather useful info and share my experiences with all the other forum visitors, and NOT to spend my precious time submitting silly posts.
It happens especially with voice conferencing with messenging services such as msn. But it is quite easily identifiable. Pattern of play can and does give it away after time.
You are never going to stamp it out 100%, but the necessary safeguards are in place at the backend of the online poker rooms and networks to ensure it is very much limited and caught when it does occurs.

for cheating/colluding in the smaller games of $5-10 and under, I'd say there's just so many games it doesn't pay to worry about it to the point where you're stressing.
