I am making a documentary showing how online poker is a scam. I have lots of footage recorded from my laptop. This all began one day when I was closing in on the final table of a money tournament. I had a nice chip stack, and a double-up would have had me among the chip leaders. My hand was dealt, and imagine my excitement when I saw 2 aces, I was raised all in so I called, but then something strange happened. My game froze up, and my internet signal dropped. I was livid, and when I was finally able to get back to my table, I was almost blinded out because of the duration of my absence.

I know what your thinking, it could have of just been a coincidence. That was my first assumption, so I jumped in another tourney and made it to the last table, this time, my signal dropped as before, this time I believe I had AK offsuit, and my signal dropped, by the time I got back on the site, I had about 3 big blinds left, so I try to get back in the tournament, and my sit in button had vanished! No matter what I tried I couldn't get back in the tourney, so I was blinded out. I was steaming at this point, but I noticed how this only happened when I was deep in a tournament with a chance to cash.

From that moment on I recorded every game I played, and I kept my tournament results. The footage that I have recorded is mind boggling to say the least. I have heard similar complaints from players, but when they contact these sites about the issue, they are usually treated rudely. It's one thing to accuse them, but it's another to have proof, and thats where I come in. Recording your screen wasn't available until recently, it's standard in macs, but pcs have software that you can download, which now I understand why some sites aren't compatible with macs.

I still remember being knocked out of a tournament short stacked with a 63 off suit, and sometimes if i'm put out of a tourney, i'll continue to watch the table. On this occasion I watched the player that replaced me at the table receive the same hand I had just lost with over, and over, and over I couldn't believe my eyes I think they dealt him 63 offsuit about 15 times before they closed me out of the table. Realizing that I shouldn't be able to see his hand in the first place in a live game, only in replays. I tried to chat with him to ask him was he being dealt that hand over and over, or was it just on my screen, my chat was blocked, and his comments didn't say anything about it, so that was only viewable on my screen.

They have the ability to see your cards in live games, and jam your internet signal. There are thousands of people with these same stories. I played on about 3 sites regularly, and even though i'm making this documentary I did pretty well, which led me to write a how to win at online poker booklet, but it's still a scam that I figured out how to beat. I believe this project could be huge, and I would definitely appreciate any investment into my documentary. I just keep thinking about super size me. People want to know the truth especially when their are so many out there losing everything to scams.

In this clip, watch how my internet signal drops, and when i'm able to join back in...my buttons disappear!!! basically I had to watch myself get blinded out in a tournament when I had a nice chip stack, I have hours of tourneys, and this happens 90% of the time when I get deep...even in freerolls. When i'm blinded out watch how I try to unregister for the other tourneys I were in, and the button would not work, so they wouldn't return the funds back to my account.
