In this week’s episode of Poker In The Ears, the first of a series of summer specials, James Hartigan and Joe Stapleton tackle a more serious issue – cheating at the poker tables.
How big a problem is it? What other methods are players using to try to gain an unfair advantage? How does Stars stop people breaking the rules?
In the wake of some high profile cases involving the use of RTA software, there has never been a more pressing time to discuss the subject.
An interview with Francis Lincoln, Head of Gaming Integrity at PokerStars, reveals how the company uses a synergy of AI and human detective work to shut down bots, stop collusion, and prevent the use of Real Time Assistant (RTA) software application.
There’s a certain amount of secrecy involved. Francis Lincoln can’t reveal all. He can’t give away all the tricks of the trade. Nevertheless, this is an enlightening discussion. PokerStars don’t tolerate cheating, and the company dedicates a tremendous amount of resources to combat it. Find out how by listening to the podcast.
