Who At Your Brick and Mortar Poker Table is NOT Cheating?
On the low-stakes tournament side I am seeing lots of scams revolving around collusion and chip dumping, especially holding out chips from one tournament-level and re-introducing them in a higher one. Many casino poker rooms are still allowing players to choose their tables and seat numbers, a practice that breeds collusion, chip-dumping and soft-playing.
So with all this dirty dealing and playing...who at the poker table is NOT cheating? Well, sorry, I don't have the answer to that one, but I do have the answer to this one: Who at the table has NEVER cheated in a brick and mortar poker game? If collusion and softplaying are to be considered cheating, then the answer is probably "no one."
