Poker Bot users sue Full Tilt Poker

October 5, 2009

pokerbotAt the moment two individuals; Lary Kennedy and Greg Omotoy are claiming they were defrauded while on an online poker site and are suing some famous poker pros. The lawsuit was filed today in L.A. County Superior Court and the claim is that they opened an account at FullTilt Poker and they built up bankroll winnings of more than $80,000.

These winnings were then all confiscated as Chris “Jesus” Ferguson, Howard Lederer, Phil Ivey and Mike Matusow supposedly accused the two players of using an automated play function called robots rather than playing the game themselves. The money was confiscated because using robots goes against Full Tilt’s online regulations.

To add onto this; the individuals are also allegedly accusing that they manipulate the game through the use of poker bots of their own making it a game of luck rather than skill; something which is illegal in the state of California.

    I hope FT loses !!
    This is definitely not a game of skill !!
    pure luck !
    how can you explain that I’ve won over 50K dollars in Atlantic City, but cant manage to win 100 dollars on FT ?
    all those online poker companies manipulate the hands and the games !! they make sure that two players have good hands and one of them wins on the river!

    I also hope those two bots don’t get their money back !

    I managed to create a bot that sees hole cards and is undetectable (took me over two years to create this)

    I don’t use it because I have the skills to win! however, I’m not so sure about this anymore.

Got something to say?
