Default Online cheats

Just played against a guy who would 'disconnect' every time he was on the draw. Very frustrating. Unfortunately for me I wanted to bust him so bad I kapt playing. He got 'disconnected' 4 times and out drew me twice.

I forwarded hand historied to Party Poker so we'll see what happens to him.......

Anyone else seen anything similar?

At some sites, if you have remaining disconnect protections, you can disconnect yourself and you will be treated as all in and the hand will be played out.

So if you have $100 in front of you and there is $50in the pot. You have a flush draw, someone bets $25 to you, now you just disconnect and after you time out, the turn and river will be dealt and you can win the $50 pot without having to call the $25 or any future bets.

That's why sites have a limited amount of disconnect protections.

You don't have to commit any more chips into the pot, the betting is frozen if you're heads up. So my KK can't make him pay for the draw when the board id 589 rainbow and he has A7s.

a bit from the reply from Party

Using the information listed above we have investigated the history of the
player thoroughly and have found that not only was the hand you reported
suspicious but this player has shown a pattern of suspicious disconnects in the
past. Based on this information we have taken away the disconnect protection
privilege for this player. In the event he is disconnected in the future his
hand will be folded. We have sent an email to the player informing him of the
investigation.

Wow never even realised that cheating method. I've never witnessed it myself. Nice to see Party support actually do something for a change (I don't play on Party but you know I do read the forums!)

Where I play it happens a bunch but a person can only do it once every 24 hours. I'm always complaining about it and if I see it happen to me I normally ream the guy a new ass hole verbally.

Then I put it in my notes. In fact every cheater I make a note, then if then hope on my table I tell the table he is a cheater. In a nice way. NORMALLY cheaters are fish so you don't want to be TOO mean.
