Full Tilt Poker says the sharing of hand histories is collusion, and some guys from Card Runners say that they shared their collective hand histories to take down ilsidur1, so if sharing hand histories is collusion, and collusion is cheating, these guys should be banned, and ilsidur1 refunded right?
Hastings had played Isildur1 three times previously, so he, Townsend and Cole South conglomerated their hand histories, allowing them to study the mystery man’s playing style. – ESPN
Wait, it’s not that simple say many an online poker player, the players contend that everyone shares histories, and there’s definitely evidence of the practice in many online poker forums and who the players ask is going to punish or even seek out every single player to ever share his hand history and make him give the money back to every player that lost a match as a result?
One thing seems to be certain, the fella’s at Card Runners haven’t read the Full Tilt Poker rules and Regs recently, or they wouldn’t have been so public as to tell ESPN in an interview that they’d colluded.
Below is an exert from Full Tilt Poker’s rules and regulations, as provided by a forum poster on the 2+2 poker forum:
Not Permitted Under Any Circumstances:
The use of shared hand histories provides detailed information on opponents a player has little or no personal experience playing against, and is deemed to be an unfair advantage. Violating this policy is subject to the maximum penalties for prohibited software use.
Players are not permitted to use the hand histories for hands that they have not personally participated in. Software designed to collect hand history information from games that the player did not participate in is prohibited. Some specific examples include:
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢community shared hand histories
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢exchanging hand histories with a friend
Rumor has it that the CardRunners gang teamed up against ilsidur1 and together took him for $4.1 MILLION dollars.Ã‚Â According to the poker community, Brian Townsend admitted publicly that hand histories were shared, studied, compared, however you want to put it, and then the community further assumes the team put together a strategy to take the high stakes online poker player down.
