My soon to be co-worker, Ephro, sent me the following that he lifted from an un-named message board (I assume):
I hear many people talk about “Poker Tracker” program (or other similar type programs), who’s to say that these programs are not also set up so that they dont show any thing is wrong. It’s all programing and anything can be done with programing.
If these sites are making HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS from rigged sites wouldnt they invest some of this into a dumby software company/s and write a program/s that checks for adnormalities in hands then have these hands check out as being OK.
Do you know for sure that the programs you use to check the programs you use are not fixed just like the program your trying to check to see if it’s fixed or not.
Something tells me that this guy makes a lot of phone calls to government agencies regarding black helicopters and secret messages being beamed into his head by spy satellites. It think there’s an interesting angle on people who think like this. I mean, this guy is so convinced that the reason he’s a losing player is because there’s a world-wide conspiracy to thrwart him, that it’s pointless to even attempt a rational discussion. If you released the source code for PokerTracker he would claim that the guys who wrote C++ (assuming that’s what PokerTracker is written in) put in traps so that if/then signaled the compiler to insert instructions that would make normal source code hide abnormalities. Hell, Intel might as well be in on it too. Maybe their chips are designed to perform some special math routine whenever they’re presented with calculations that would implicate online poker rooms in cheating.
