      i'm i playing real people?

      the chat box on WH never gets used?

      people always seam to sit their and do nothing all game apart from going all in with an ace or a flush draw pre flop

      some players seam to fold at the same time every time about 3/4 seconds

      so i was just asking

      Hi SNes73,

      Yes, you are playing against other real people.

      A lot of players don't actually like to chat as it can distract your thinking. Others are possibly playing several different tables at the same time which of course requires even more concentration.
      You will occasionally find some players who like to chat. Some will purposely try to distract you or throw insults around so pick and choose who you chat too. You can always use the mute function if anyone is really annoying you ;)

      Good luck & enjoy your poker on William Hill.

      Best regards,


      Bart

      Most people in order to increase their hourly play lots of tables like 12 and so on, they don't bother chatting because obviously while playing so many tables it's hard to do and distracts from the hands. As for folding at same time, multitablers have at least basic understanding of preflop/flop play so in most common situations it doesn't take very long to figure out what to do.

      There are some cases of bots playing online, but poker rooms pay back the players who lost to them as soon as they find those bots. Anyway, even if you'd happen to find one bot at your table, there's nothing to be worried about since they can't beat winning human players, they will not be capable of playing full stacked either so if you are so worried about playing not vs real people just play 50bb minimum buy-in tables. :)

      You mean you don't always go all-in with a flush draw pre-flop?

      In short: yes, no, probably and almost certainly not.

      I'll never forget the first time that I got bored enough to google one of my nicknames and randomly wandered into some small poker forum where I, among some other players, was listed as a bot. Some people go to extreme lengths to justify their losses... As for the chatbox, you shouldn't even have it open to begin with.

      When I play on WH I use a HUD, and display issues make it necessary for me to put the hand history display over top of the chat box, so I have chat turned off by default. That doesn't make me unfriendly, I just have to choose between using a HUD and chatting, so I make the obvious choice. :)

      Perhaps some of the other players you're up against are in the same situation.

      On Cake, where HUDs are prohibited, I _do_ glance at the chat box from time to time, but there's rarely much more there than "NH" and "TY."

      I am afraid that is provably not true.

      The iPoker network is bot friendly and there are many well-known bots on the network. Most of the ones I ran into are pretty bad though.
