      Translated from Dutch forum

      Shit ... I'm so pissed, got robbed actually.

      Today I was helping out my mom who needed an extra waiter after one got sick for was supposed to be a busy day, which it wasn't. So, I leave earlier from the restaurant and as I arrived home I see my 13 year old nephew crying in panic as he kept screaching "sorry" at me.

      What happened ?
      He passed by home and is a bit unstable since his dad passed away 2 months ago so he often visited for company. Apparently he was left alone with the computer for a while and found PartyPoker with my password autofill still on (as I thought anyone at home was trustworthy enough) and he started playing on my account. He lost a little and then started tilting and panicking as he thought I'd get really pissed at him and in his attempt to win back the money lost he's squandered my entire roll

      What can I do now ? :O
      Demand he'd take on student weekend or holidays jobs and repays me bit by bit as you'd do when you'd crash a friend's car is impossible as he's too young to be allowed to work. As he's a minor and it would probably be considered to be "negligance" from my part I'm pretty powerless ...
      Luckily I withdrew 1000 € just yesterday for some personal stuff, which I could now redeposit and forget about spending the money as planned, changing all my passwords and unable all autofills and restart with that money.

      I cashed in my partypoints to still be able to do the coachings until my money arrives but I dunno ... it's gonna take soooo long to rebuild this roll :( :(

      So sick it :@
      Who the f* thinks about this ... even though I got good external security software installed and changed my password every 2 weeks, I now got screwed over this way... pff
      I feel so f'ing sick now ...

      WOW.......
      After reading this the first thing I did was go into my account and made sure I unchecked remember password. Its a "good" warning to all of us not to leave are password remembered and as a small solace could stop this happening to others in the future.
      Good luck,
      Mack

      Sorry to here that SonicXT..... :(

      Yes, hand histories would be funny.... :D


      Sonic I think you should just tell him in 15 years he has to give you 5000$. He is old enough to know better. Make him sign something. :D

      Dude, I felt so hammered when I read your post yesterday, I haven't been able to respond until today.

      Commiserations. But remember, he is family, young, and in distress. He fucked up big time, and you are paying. If he understands how much it hurts you, without having to believe he is an irredeemable retard for ever after, he can learn to avoid situations like this for the rest of his life, a major plus.

      In terms of your bankroll, if you want to do some one on one coaching, I'll sign up for 10 lessons, paid in advance, the times worked out when it can suit both of us.

      Let me know.

      I'm wvery sorry for your bankroll. It would take you couple of months of hard work to earn it again probably. 5000$ is like average salary for 4 months in my country... :(

      As a punishment you should force him to learn poker! With such a burn playing poker for the first time, he should have an iron discipline for the rest of his life. He'll never forget what it's like to be tilting and will never allow that again :P

      On a more serious note, you can tell yourself that if you built your BR up there you can still do it again. You can't let a mishap demoralize you. Think of all those guys that went bankrupt 2/3 times before becoming millionaires!

      Good luck!
