The "Madbotter" online poker cheat comes clean on poker forum--Do you and I believe it?
An online poker player calling himself “themadbotter”
recently admitted on the Two plus Two poker forum that he’s been successfully bot-cheating
online poker for the past six months and has racked up more than &30,000 in
profits in that time.
He has also stated that he is retiring from
what he calls his lucrative online poker cheating endeavor because he has found
some other lucrative career and he no longer wants to put his time into the
online poker cheating (which he doesn’t really consider cheating).
So—do you believe him?
I understand that lots of you are skeptics.
After all, why would a guy who’s been successfully cheating for that much time
without taking heat in the poker forums admit to this? Especially in light of
the fact that his new endeavor might fail, which could propel his re-entry into
poker bot cheating?
Well, I was asked the same question when I
went public with my huge brick and mortar casino cheating career. I openly
admitted and described my ultra-casino cheating move (the Savannah) even though
I knew I could have gone on doing it for years if not forever.
Not many people believed me at first
either. In fact, until casino security and surveillance insiders backed up my
claims, I was generally considered a fiction writer when it came to casino
So yes, I do believe the guy (or girl—you never
He also stated that lots of work and
tune-ups were necessary to keep his bot functioning properly and to make sure
he stayed under the radar. I understand that statement very well, as I had to
do tons of work preparing my brick and mortar cheat moves and at the same time
doing my own security work to make sure I didn’t end up in jail.
Casino cheating in any form, online or off,
is very difficult and takes tons of work.
So far the reactions across the online
poker world vary. Some people believe it and want to hear more. Others believe
it and condemn the guy for his online poker cheating and then bragging about
Still others are doubtful about the
veracity of the claims.
One guy on the forum says he thinks he
knows who themadbotter might be and is even launching his own investigation to
come up with more.
Well, good luck to him and I hope you all
continue to stay abreast of this very interesting online poker cheating
And one more thing: If you, Mr. or Ms. themadbotter,

My book, AMERICAN ROULETTE (St. Martin's Press), tells the true story of my twenty-five years as a professional casino cheater. Upon arriving in Las Vegas, in my early twenties, I supported myself solely through legitimate gambling. However, I soon found myself broke and homeless, living under a highway overpass. I eventually sought gainful employment in the only industry I had knowledge of, becoming a Blackjack and Baccarat dealer. Armed with experience on both sides of the tables, my mentor to be, Joe Classon taught the ways of a professional casino cheater.
Although retired, I keep up on the various cons and scams that law enforcement is largely unable to adequately police.
