    The cashier is available for me and i cashed my money. They only blocked my poker account and they don't answer me for a month. I wrote to the online chat. They don't know how to help me. They say to wait for a response from the Validation team ...

    Who had a similar problem? are there any chances of unblocking?

    If they allowed to withdraw the money then only reason why they closed their account is because they believe you are a winner and you will damage their profits.

    What games were you playing and what country are you from? Chances are if they give you the boot you won't be able to get it reversed.

    While this is true, you are still taking money out of their economy. If I lose $1,000 to you and they rake $3 that's a lot less than what they can expect to net had I decided to take my $1,000 into the casino or place a bet in the sportsbook.

    I'm from another continent, now I live in Mexico.
    I am economically benefit for the poker room ....because many regular players try to play HU and run away from strong opponents. I was evil for such bumhunters, I played all the games in a row, in any lineup.
    I created a real meat grinder .... now without me, money easily goes to weak regulars.

    What you aren't understanding is weak regs are better to a site than good regs. Smaller winrates by regs means the fun players last longer and more rake gets taken.

    This is not true ... when regulars try to select a game, play only with fish, they seriously ruin the economy for the poker room. It's more profitable for poker rooms to have "rake machines" like me ... who are ready to fly into any game.

    It is true. Yes, games are important to get running but Bovada/Bodog is anonymous. People sit $10/$20 with $821.74 to pretend they are a fish with their whole roll on the table. After a few HU hands the tables break when the other player realizes they aren't some fish. Not sure how you can dispute what I said. Poker sites want games to run, but if you are beating the games for some absurd rate then it doesn't matter if you are starting games or not. Just because you give action to all players doesn't mean you're good to the site. If anything you are giving action because you feel as though you are the best player at that particular stake/pool.

    It doesn't really matter much, though. Once you are restricted and paid out you won't be able to get back in to your account to play.

    Almost no chance they think he cheated if they did not block withdrawals.

    Crusher's logic seems solid to me.

    this is only an educated guess, but intuitively, I would think that it is true. they want weaker players for the reason given above.

    If a Poker room profiles its players and can ID fish and strong players, is there anything wrong with putting the strong players together, and the fish together? This would keep the fish around the longest, and make the most rake. It would also keep the pros from busting about the fish too quickly, before they can be raked. So it's an interesting business idea. Is it wrong to non-randomly place players at tables to maximize poker room revenue?

    HUDs are fine on Bovada/Bodog/Ignition site. They could give him the boot if they think hes running other programs like solvers or any real time assistance.

    the only thing I can guess off hand is that are checking on possible collusion. This happened to me on another site, but it was resolved in less than a month.
