Apologies to all  and sincere apologies to the person who I asked a lot of during this!

Villain in the T8 vs AA hand is Guy?

First time posters itt. Obv it was, yea.

Is it my first post itt? Apologies for not posting sooner, I read it often. Sorry it's also not on a lighter not also!

I could be wrong, but if I was looking at that hand as a part of a collusion investigation, I wouldn't be looking at preflop from you - it's obv standard and I'm sure even the I poker team are familiar with folding aces on the bubble of satellites.

Don't like to be the one to say it, but I'm afraid post flop (and indeed preflop from him) it looks like a really clear cut chip dump / soft play to me.

He's limped with junk rather than jamming so he doesn't put you at risk, he's then gone ahead on the flop so doesn't bet, nor on the turn, then he gives you 1bb on the river when you go ahead.

It's hard on you because you've done nothing specifically wrong, but it's hard to argue that you didn't communicate your cards with each other when you're in the same house and the hand plays out this way.

Again not saying you did, I'm just saying I can see why they think it's black and white.

Can you see what I'm saying?

Feel for you though mate, it's horrible spot to be in, esp if you literally do nothing wrong, maybe guy just unprompted tells you "oh shit I flopped two pair here mate!" Then you're in a horrible spot with no way out.


I find it very difficult to believe you would post something like that!

From the kid who threw his toys out of the pram when someone suggested he & his house mates might possibly collude both online at home and maybe even live, I strongly suggest you consider how you wish to be judged in this spot

I am frequently astounded how many judgements people have made about this hand, spot and total HH without knowing anything about it

If I told you that I opened every single one of Daves bbs when folded to would you still contest soft play?

If I told you that the complainant made 3x more chips from me in resteals than dave did would you still think its soft play and collusion ?

The aa hand is the most standard hand in satty history! Ignoring all the possibilities of how the hand plays out, ask yourself one question, if we were colluding do you think the hand ever goes to showdown?

Bumping for 2014

Having had a plumber in to fit new boiler and bathroom, am doing as much of the other stuff as I can.

Recently took out all the old bathroom ( new one upstairs, old one was downstairs), sorted the soil stack and pipework . Bricked up/cemented all the holes left by the pipes. Even sorted out the pipes/scrap left over to get weighed in, instead of just taking to the tip.

Got to fill floor where I took the old shower out as it was a cast stone tray that was sunk into the floor. Undecided whether to use concrete or just use cement.

how deep is the hole?

Im going to guess that a modern epoxy based mortar is going to be the preferred solution here. Im also assuming its the ground floor you are referring to?

Also I presume you aren't putting a shower back in? Is the void not useful? Or are you going wet room stylee?

What happened to the thread where I was accused of cheating?

It stays up for 5 days so people can look & point and in some cases accuse.

I start to post a few facts itt and it gets taken down?

I would just like to point out to the blonde community that neither Dave nor myself have asked for this to be taken down.   

We maintain our innocence and have nothing to hide. We haven't been presented with a single jot of evidence of our alleged collusion

We are continuing to try and clear our name privately but are happy for the thread to remain so as to make it absolutely clear we have nothing to hide nor fear.

I am astounded that a company (Dusk Till Dawn) claim that they have no desire to air their issues on a public forum, and yet their owner feels it is appropriate to post the "outcome" of an investigation on a forum prior to advising the parties involved of the alleged findings.

Given the serious nature of the allegations against me (and David), and the manner in which Dusk Till Dawn have conducted themselves I think it is important to put some facts out there, so that people can understand the situation, and how Dusk Till Dawn have conducted themselves in this matter.

1.   We have not seen a single piece of evidence to suggest any form of collusion between us. This has been requested but denied. 

2.   We have been provided with 5 hands (in a vacuum) and asked to comment upon them which we have done.  None of these hands show collusion.

3.   We have not seen a single piece of correspondence from Ipoker in respect of this matter. This has been requested but denied.

4.   Dusk Till Dawn have not responded to a single query we have raised. We have requested copies of all correspondence between DTD & Ipoker, which has been refused. We specifically requested the copies of correspondence which DTD have issued in our defence, this was also refused.

5.   We have been refused sight of the report which allegedly confirms our collusion.

6.   We have been refused access to a copy of the full Hand History, or access to the client in order that we could retrieve the hand history for ourselves.

7.   We proposed a Satellite/ICM expert to be appointed as mediator/adjudicator and this request was ignored.

The list could go on but they are the salient points.

In short, we have been accused of something which could significantly harm our reputations in poker. We have not been given any opportunity to provide an explanation (with the exception of commenting on 5 hands).

We have subsequently been advised of our alleged guilt on a public forum, without a single jot of evidence being presented to us. We have not been offered any recourse. We have been refused contact with Ipoker. Dusk Till Dawn have refused to correspond to our queries.

I am not sure what kind of justice this is supposed to represent but it isn’t one that I recognise.

I would like to make it clear that I have no desire for Dusk Till Dawn to represent my interests in this matter. They have made it quite clear that my best interests are not what they have in mind given their actions. I would like to be able to represent myself directly with Ipoker with experts in satellite strategy to comment upon the hands. I also expect the hands to be given consideration along with the game flow and not in a vacuum.

As I have done I will continue to clear my name in a private manner.

Feeling pretty dizzy at the moment. I haven’t read this thread in any detail since it has been reopened, I just wanted to make a point.

I stated last night/early this morning that I didn’t cheat with anyone in the Satellite and I absolutely maintain that position.

To be clear on the position I poker have temporarily suspended account privileges whilst I am under investigation and Dave is in the same position. DTD verbally advised us that collusion HAS been identified and hence their position today, which I can respect at this time.

However, I am now going to spend as much time as it will take to clear my name (and Daves) because I/we didn’t cheat.
I don’t want to mention any specifics on here so as not to potentially prejudice my position. Needless to say once its resolved I will comment further.

Spent all night going through the 46 bubble hands.

Imo 7 of them are very interesting and i've asked ipoker to look into them fully.

Apologies to Nathan, I don't think you were involved now after due consideration.

Lol! Please go back & read your op where you were certain it was me & ultra!

I honestly have no concerns what so ever. I would recommend you start your HH review from 500/1000 blinds. I would also suggest you do that whilst considering if I was colluding with you.  I must have r/f vs you at least 7 times in a very short period if time

Im sure I poker will confirm the same.

So I call off vs rns when he has KK
The kid i busted with my qq
I called off frasers jam bvb when he had 77

Yeah sounds like I was picking on you

11  Poker Forums / The Rail / Re: Felt colluded against in UKPC DTD Mega sat just finished now on ipoker.. on: February 20, 2014, 02:44:07 AM
You didn't complain when you doubled with JJ.

Infact I would ask you to recall just how many time you 3b ai vs me when there were 14/16 players left? Maybe 7 times? Some terrible over jams too!

And I raise folded to you all 7 times? No?

Are people not just as likely to accuse me of colluding with you too?

Please review the HHS from 500/1000 blinds and I'm sure you will realise its sour grapes.

I haven't logged into blonde for 6 months and your post is embarrassing!

I am yarp23, I am delighted you were so specific about who I was "cheating" with

Dave Milligan is my best friend in poker, and you are clear I didn't collude with him

I am friendly with Fraser Bellamy I believe I 3 bet him about 7/8 times with 14 people left

I also 3 bet rsnxxxxxxxxxx 7/8 times too 15 people out (no idea who that is)

I am aware of ultra balls have met him once irl.

So seriously who am I going to help if I really want to cheat? ........

Infact if you recall correctly I called off Fraser on the pure bubble long before I called you off! Your reporting of the HHS seem a little lacking in fullness don't they?

I am more than happy that Dtd review my HHS. I am happy for any independent person to check it too.

I am also happy that every other of my recent satty HHS are also reviewed to show exactly the same play style when I'm cl on the bubble

I am insulted by your accusation and I await your apology! It's quite clear it is sour grapes. I think you will find 86ss plays fine HU for 3bbs when you gave 40% of chips in play!

I would expect better of someone like you. Infact I'm very disappointed! Gl with your collusion report thou

Absolutely nothing I have said in this thread is disrespectful to you mate! Zero!

All I did was point out the obvious! And maybe highlight a reason why it hasn't flown of the shelves (in a piecemeal manner).

If I have pissed you off Im sorry, But Milligan can confirm that I am on your side in this. Feel free to ask him about the nice things I said about you (and Tomsom) by text.

I notice that you didn't highlight anything that Dave said ITT? Which is basically the same as I have said!

If you wanna have the hump feel free, but no harm intended.  At the end of the day ALL staking threads speak for themselves don't they.

If you keep making these investments you will very quickly start making a lot of money for an extremely low risk.

If you check the early posts of my stable graph in my diary you can see how investing small amounts at low risk can build up quickly into something worth having.

this isn't disputed,

but not many people invest 200 to return 250 on these boards. The fact the period is capped isn't an incentive either

15  Poker Forums / Online Tournament Staking / Re: Short term 180s backing... on: September 03, 2013, 02:23:14 PM
I don't want to comment too much, but in short

This opportunity is a terrible "punt", as returns are going to be marginal. However the reality is it is structured to the punters market

But, it is relatively low risk - but again that's not a punters MO

It seems to me to benefit Ray exponentially more than investors, and the fact it is short term increases that gap
You realise he isn't quitting in makeup ever? So by providing capital you essentially breakeven at worst? Seems like a good deal to me. I mean I've just woken up and been offered the chance of some free money which i've decided to take. If it wasn't for that caveat I wouldn't be interested at such a split. Gonna suck for ray if he breaks even for 7k more games but I have the faith.

yes I do - try reading my post again

it quite clearly says it is low risk
