      If it's true it's cheating.

      There are lots of people doing this every time there a billionth hand promotion.

      And since I doubt its against PS rules, don't think there's much you can do about that.

      It's certainly true. It's all a matter of whether or not Stars will choose to ignore it.

      Definately,

      I think it is strange stars did not think of this prior to this promotion. Did they not notice similar behaviour building up to the hand?

      Agreeing to fold every hand unless it's the milestone hand is collusion. Collusion is against the rules. Easy as that imo...

      Don't know if it's cheating or not, but i don't see any rules against folding all the hands u r dealt on pokerstars website either.

      EDIT- But pretty sure that they were both together in this :)

      Smart move, but they will probably get banned.

      I hope the money is confiscated and donated to degenerate fish in need of more money to throw away.

      Well that is cheating, they obviously were colluding. But you have to give them credit, that was fucking smart!

      Is it collusion if people do it at random time? I doubt the fact there is a promotion changes something from allowed to "collusion".

      Do you people know how many NL2, PLO2 tables run where every1 instafolds approaching main 50/60/70 Billion hands? (hundreds at least) Thousands of people should be banned for that?

      Btw. just to clarify I'm in no way supporting what they did. (and countless others in previous promotions)

      I just challenge the claim that this is worthy of a ban. They abused the rules of the promotion and may get stripped of that promotion money. (i've yet to see this happening and I've seen several of these tables win milestone hands) If you have evidence/statements from stars that people lost the promotion money/got banned, correct me if I'm wrong.

      I've no problem with replying, I just don't want an argument over nonsense. And I really don't like the tone of your posts, I'm not your "enemy".

      You are comparing 2 players folding each hand on 24 tables to 9 players doing random stuff.
