Not one to add to conspiracies.. but..

I did talk with support about this, and they said there's nothing suspicious here...
TLDR: Checked a royal flush as last to act on the river.

  • Bots in the $2 tourney.
  • BTW he didn't check the river and I would be worried about your own game if you are leading with the 3rd best hand into two opponents....and also that you don't know what a check is....
  • Okay, so he just calls the river with a Royal, not checks..
    And my play? 2 things..... two 10's on the flop checked there and turn? I can rep a 10 with a bet out I thought.... but then also, I was drinking too lol :)

  • Well last time I was at moose's he seemed adamant that there are BOTs on Poker Stars.
    However, in all likelihood he was only pulling my chain aka only joking around.

    His logic was that he should be crushing $0.01/.02 (paraphrasing what I remember him saying)...
  • I’m going to guess it was either a misclick or they didn’t realize they made the royal. I did that once with a straight flush playing live. I was so focused on my flush draw that I didn’t even notice I made the nuts. I led out, got raised, just called, and inadvertently slowed the ace high flush.

    Or online poker is rigged.

    I've done the exact same thing, folded my (unknown) straight flush to Moose's higher strait flush. He was not happy for some reason! something about bad luck and its the only luck..

    BTW there are bot on PS but as you can imagine they are programmed to be not detectable! The more they get caught the more they refine the software. as long as they play like a human and act like a human PS cannot tell that they are not a human. I have gotten many a refund from PS because I was in a tournament with a bot. you now got 60th place instead of 61. Or I have played a cash games against one and they just give you all losses back they took from you!
