Different Methods of Cheating Adopted Online!

Jul 23, 2008
Playing poker online is convenient and fun but is not bereft of malpractices. There are several issues that one must understand in order not to fall prey to these cheats.

Slow tables are not good to play with as people who cheat throng these tables to take away money from unsuspecting players. They usually form teams and sit at tables and cheat others of their money. The technique that is used by them is known as "AIMing", which means automated instant messaging. They use messages to tell each other their cards. Knowing six cards that are taken out of the deck improves the chances of winning.

In a ring game, which has ten players, there are hot spots for these cheaters and because they have more people in their team and play against more number of players, the profits are usually pretty high. The other players usually stand no chance to win with so much going on, unless they get the perfect winning cards.

When playing online, you must also be aware of two or more players that keep raising, to push other players out of a pot. When these cheaters raise and re-raise in this manner, the other players usually tend to think that they have a very good hand. But most of the time, these players have very bad hands, and when you see this happening too much, you can either fold or even play these cheaters at their own game, by calling in and many a time this pays off very well. They would have raised and re-raised enough to give you a good stack.

One of the more common cheats is the one that takes place in huge tournaments. There are usually several people of may be six or seven working together as this gives them a good advantage of gaining well from cheating. The cheat is known as chip dumping, where these cheating players dump their chips to one another and finally to one end guy. Although, they start playing at different tables, as soon as they get to the same table as a teammate, they dump their chips to each other. This is the most guaranteed way of getting to the final table.

There is wide-spread cheating that goes on in the brick-mortar casinos but it occurs in online casinos too. It is part of the game just as spitballs are in baseball. In any case, the main thing that a player has to do to ensure that the crooks do not get hold of the money is to speak to the casino authorities. You should not obviously be ranting about every small thing you see, but if you happen to have major suspicions, then do not keep them to yourself.

It is important that all players know how to protect themselves from these cheats, but should never ever resort to such cheap tactics, because cheating is the birth right of losers.
