Online Poker Cheats

Online Poker Offenders have been an ever growing threat, especially in recent time with everyone looking to make a ‘Fast Buck or Two’. Not to worry Players!! As threats keep evolving so too does the capacity of the online poker industry to tackle such online poker cheats. The constant fear that revolves around online transaction is wiped out not only by cutting edge security systems but also by highly  qualified backend security personnel. Online poker cheating does occur and may exist in two forms active cheating and passive cheating.

This play manages to maximize value bets. Online collusion is the other extreme, something which I would term as passive cheating. This is when players share their cards with one another to help them make better choices when it comes to odds. It is much harder to catch.

Online Hacking just cannot happen, at least not from the outside. Why? Well any online poker company employs 128bit encryption. Such as digital certificates from companies like THAWTE. The value of these certificates is that the client side program connects on a secure level to their server - therefore it is encrypted on your computer and decrypted on the server side. Making it nearly impossible to hack. Other techniques utilized by online poker cheats include Phishing, Collusion, Poker Bots and using online poker cheat software.

Phishing attacks use 'spoofed' e-mails and fraudulent websites designed to fool recipients into divulging personal financial data such as credit card numbers, account usernames and passwords, social security numbers, etc. All of which is valuable information about you which is like a gold mine for online poker cheats.

It could be as simple as two guys using IM to warn each other when they have a big hand. More intricate collusion methods include employing specific strategies to get other players to put more money in the pot. The standard method is the squeeze play.

A poker bot is a sophisticated card playing robot created using a computer program that gives its controller an unfair mathematical advantage during an online poker game.
