The Luxury Of Being An Online Poker Cheat

The Luxury of Online Poker Cheating really is just that. As most of you are well aware, the past year has been filled with huge online poker scams happening at top sites such as Absolute Poker, UltimateBet and Full Tilt. We have heard about $500,000fines, rebukes from the Kahnawake Online Gaming Commission (which to many is a complete joke), comments from ex-US senators such as Alphonse D’Amato and even signings of players guilty of online poker cheating to represent online poker rooms! But the one thing we have NOT heard about in the wake of all these online poker cheat scams is arrests. That’s right, not a single person has been arrested for online poker cheating in any of these major scams, nor am I aware of a single person anywhere in the world ever being arrested for cheating at online poker.

But in the real brick and mortar world of casinos and poker rooms such is not the case. In the past year there have been many major cheating scams as well, the most infamous of which was the US/Canadian dealer/player collusion false shuffle baccarat scam. The only difference between an online casino or poker cheating scam and a real brick and mortar poker or casino cheating scam is that when you hear about the latter, you always hear about the arrests—and even often the mention of FBI or even Interpol involvement in the case! So, if I were a cheating man—and some of you may know that I once was!—LOL!—I would surely stake my efforts to cheating online poker and casinos rather than real ones. Why? Because I’d truly have nothing to lose!
