Default Trouble at Absolute Poker

This looks very disturbing.
Solid evidence of someone able to see other player's holecards at Absolute Poker, and it appears to be an inside job.

Yeah, it's pretty much settled that someone was leaking hole card info. Probably wasn't management, but they have handled this terribly.

I seriously am beginning to dislike online poker alot. I was reading about this new generation of "internet poker players" who generally get their asses handed to them in live play because they only have 2 moves--go all in when you have decent pocket cards or fold if you don't. I was playing in an online tournament 2 days ago and some guy went all in before the flop in the first 3 hands...pulling in HUGE $15 pots. So I got annoyed at this and called him when i had AJ...guess what he had.. 7 2 OFFSUIT, it's not only him either, I've seen this happen too many times to even count and the funny thing is you would never see this happen in live play, not by any good poker players anyway.

i stopped playing pokerstars because of this. I think i lost 6 heads up matches in a row at one point...and it was the river card on a LONG SHOT that gave the other player the win everytime. I had them outbeaten to the river every time. Granted, that means nothing, i should have lost a couple and won a couple...but winning all 6 or losing all 6 has to be huge on long shot odds. I recall one time an admin came to our table to chat with the other player in the chat screen....needless to say i got my ass handed to me . Too bad i can't stand live poker because its a fun game, the people just make it a miserable time...touche
