Online Poker Is Rigged, ver. 2.0

Taking the online-poker-is-rigged conspiracy to a new levelWas up until way past sunrise this a.m. following the $3,000 Limit Hold ’em event (Event No. 34), which played down to the final nine. Perhaps as a result, I found myself back at the limit tables online some today. Kind of enjoyed the serene, low risk atmosphere after the last few months of riding the pot limit Omaha rollercoaster.

Haven’t the energy for a long post, but wanted to share some chat from one of my tables today. Fellow to my left -- I’ll call him WaryWarren -- had been bleeding chips at a fairly impressive clip. That’s when I noticed the same fellow had been typing something over in the chat box.

WaryWarren: bo you dont lay a man to good of odds ha

Wasn’t sure to whom the comment was directed. On the previous hand I had been dealt pocket rockets, had raised preflop only to see five or six callers, then had to let the hand go in the face of possible straights and flushes. This was on Bodog, where the chat box is located off to the side, the chat being segregated from the “dealer” commentary. Since the chat doesn’t appear with the hand descriptions -- and since I don’t pay that much attention to the chat, anyway -- I often don’t know when a particular comment has been made.

Anyway, a few hands later Warren pipes up again:

WaryWarren: i see ya bo that suppose to be funny you not

Who the hell is Bo? No one is responding to WaryWarren’s comments. I glance around at the player names and don’t see a Bo among them. As Warren’s stack trickles down to his last five bucks or so, his comments become more piercing.

WaryWarren: yea rub in you crooked ass
WaryWarren: you think you die tonight you taking it with you sorry you got to answer to man upstairs

Amen, brother. And whatever. I watch as he chases another draw, again failing to hit.

WaryWarren: i bet you grinning aint you bo
WaryWarren: bo look up my account see how many deposits i given you then look how much ive cased in sad ha

Now I’m starting to wonder if perhaps he’s got a buddy at the table, someone to whom he’s made player-to-player transfers. And with whom he is now -- possibly -- colluding. I’ve seen such applesauce before. Just about this time last year when I wrote a post about encountering collusion at the online table, the perps having betrayed themselves in chat. Warren loses yet another pot, and is now down to his last buck. He mucks his hand and types:

WaryWarren: good god bodog thats getting sad

Ahhhh . . . now I see. Warren has taken the whole “this-site-is-so-rigged” whine to the next level, personifying the site as his much-hated arch-nemesis. Hilarious.

Wouldn’t it have been great if “Bo” responded? What would he say?

Oh, I know.

If only I get a dollar everytime I hear from some player on the same table, that online poker is rigged. I'd be rich, instead of grinding it out on a $10NL table.

You'd have to love bodog though. And their casino... :)
