What, Bots not Allowed at Full Tilt?!
Full Tilt Poker strikes down on the bots and refunds players who lost money to bots. Bot developer Shanky Technologies apologizes to their customers.
Oh come on. You all knew you weren’t allowed to do that.
Both players and developers knew this. That’s just plain obvious to each and everyone. Hey, in their product information Shanky even advices its customers to rename the executable file in order to avoid detection.
Bots are not in accordance with the poker sites’ terms and conditions that we all have to accept before downloading the poker software.
So come on guys, you’ve been selling and using bots with open eyes and you should take the consequences as men (or women). Anything else is just ridiculous.
I tried out a poker bot a while back. If FTP blocks my account, there’s nothing I can say about it. That’s why I keep a small bankroll in my account. (LOL good one.)
Personally, I’m not hysterical about playing against a bot now and then. I think I can beat them just as well as the rest of the players. (Meaning, I’ll lose at the same rate regardless.)
I base this on an empirical observation: my bot lost my money really quick.
PS Or am I wrong? Did FTP really have a soft policy vis-à-vis poker bots?
