Default give the man his due

I know on the net that forrest pump is either you love him or you hate him

but I have to say he is a man of his word ....I was in a tourny he was running and saw blatant chip dumping....

2nd hand of tourny on a/p and both players it showed were from Las Vegas

player 1 bets 200 chips
player 2 reraised 400 chips....
everyone else folds
player one calls
see the flop
player one bets 1090 chips
player 2 goes all in with 1100 chips
player 1 folds

the table was livid .....

I emailed forrest and asked him to review the play logs from the table.
he emailed back and said reviewed and 2 clicks and both are now history.

I wish the poker sites were as quick to act and police. So I have to say that forrest didnt screw around he followed up and took immediate and permanent action action 2 idiots ....btw player 2 was out in less then 10 minutes ....

I qualified for that AP 100K tournament that I posted about a little while ago through a tourney that was set up by Forrest_Pump.

I had some complications getting into the tourney, and ended up missing the first 10 or 15 minutes before final getting it worked out. Forrest helped me get into the tourney, and suggested that I email AP and let them know about the problem. I ended up getting $20 out of the whole thing.

So I agree, Forrest is a good guy, with good intentions, and won't stand for the crap that many people/sites put out there.

Yeah, just an extra 10 chips to call out of 1100 is TOO obvious. Both with the origin of Las Vegas is too funny. I've seen some suspicious play before, but was too slow to catch any evidence. Next time, I'll have a pen in hand.

I see more and more collusion now and days. If it's at a regular table I just get up leave and send support a note of the players involved, the table and the time. They usually monitor the players then and catch them. If I see it in a sit and go tourney I would do the same thing, but try and get my money back if I lost. I havn't had the problem in a sit and go or tourney yet but I'm sure I will run into colluding players more and more down the road. If you want to see collusion though, go to a big NL table. Like $30/$60. OMG, I see 2 players come into a table with a few guys and it's so obvious they're playing together it makes me sick. I don't tell titan about them though because I cant be for sure and I'm not playing against them.
I got the nuts!!!

Good to hear that he took action right away and let the players know that this was not acceptable.
Never move all-in with Q-6.

Dont you need like at least 3 - 4 spots to make collusion work properly? I mean even if you could wrangle 2 spots on a table somehow, there still are many possible variations that could come out of a 52 card deck?
