Poker Cheaters/Colluders Beware!

If you cheat when playing online Poker you are a loser and a theif. Plain and simple.


Last week 16 year old JJProdigy got caught playing 2 accounts in one Tourney. His explaination "damit granny" didn't fly. Party sucked up 140,000 of cheater profit.

This week they caught a bigger cheat. ZeeJustin, online sit n go and Tourney pro was caught playing at least 6 different accounts. Often in sit n gos! He later admitted to having more then 1 entry in a one table sit n go! This is unbelievable. His lame and sad semi apology is below.

This is a good thing for online poker. The cheats are finally getting the smack down they deserve. Hitting guys in the wallet will be a huge eye opener for other cheats.

Can you imagine what would happen to these punks if caught cheating in a live game? My guess is that several players that faced ZEE in $500 sit n gos (or $5000, he plays both) have some plans brewing for the kid when things cool off. He probably cheated several strong sit n go players out of thousands of dollars. You cheat the wrong guy you might lose more then just money.

I hear his friends say "hey, hes just a kid, he made a mistake". That statement might have smoothed things over with some guys (mostly ones that didnt lose huge chunks of their BR's). But then, came this horrible rant from the boy with his private parts caught in his zipper.

Zeeee responds to his being caught cheating players, and PartyPoker.

Zee:

Here is the email I got from PartyPoker yesterday morning:

Dear Mr Bonomo,

This communication is to inform you of the findings of an investigation launched internally by partypoker.com into six accounts originating from your own location and computer.

These are the accounts in question:

ZeeJustin
IBLUFFUOUT69
jwilson55
vapoker58
mehsab
greenb272

These accounts have been systematically used to enter the same Multi Table Tournaments as a ýteamý, in a deception that is in direct violation of our Terms and Conditions.

Although registered in different names, these accounts have been created with the sole intention of playing as multiple accounts in the same tournaments. All six accounts were consistently logged into at the same time from the same IP/System and show a consistent pattern of being played by the same person.

A decision has been made, in consultation with the Poker Room Manager, Legal and Management, to close these accounts permanently and confiscate all funds. I would ask that you do not attempt to open any further accounts with our company, as these will be closed and any monies therein will be deemed forfeited.

Furthermore, please be informed that we have withdrawn your PPMV Cruise Package and you will no longer appear on the passenger list.

Steve Winter
Manager, Investigations Team

Yes, it’s true. I did use these accounts to enter multiple accounts in the same multi table tournaments. I have never done this in a tournament with less than 1,000 players.

I have been at the same table as myself. For what it’s worth, my standard protocol has been to increase my number of tables when this happens. As most of you know, I will very rarely be playing fewer than six tables at a time. If I had 6 tables open and two of my accounts were brought to the same table, I would simply open up 4-6 more SNGs. I felt that this would negate my unethical advantage. With 10 tables open, I just play tight and solid. I can’t even remember the hole cards one account folded after the flop, and I’m certainly unable to pay special attention to that table. After talking to Curtains, I realize my standard play should have been to sit one account out when this happens, but I want to make it clear that I never used collusion to my advantage, never chip dumped, or did anything of the sort.

However, what Party emailed me is wrong on several subjects.
First of all, the accounts were NOT created solely for MTT use. They were originally created for SNG play. It got to the point where everyone knew that ZeeJustin would steal the blinds often, and everyone called him liberally. I created these accounts to erase this loose image. Everyone would be readless against me, and it was a huge advantage. These accounts all did very well in the big SNGs on PartyPoker.

N82 referred to a hack that let you open multiple Party clients. I have no clue how no one has mentioned this yet, but no such hack was necessary. This is important, so listen up.

All you had to do was click the PartyPoker icon on your desktop very rapidly. If you did that, multiple clients would open up.

Using this bug, I was able to play multiple accounts on the same computer at the same time. I would be in a step 5 on one name, while playing a mini step 5 on another, and no one would ever suspect that it was me.

All of the money that was seized from me was from sit’n’go play where nothing unethical was done. I never entered multiple accounts into the same sit’n’go, never colluded with anyone, never soft played anyone and never chip dumped with anyone.

The other accounts I used never had any big MTT scores. Combined, I am pretty sure they were all long-term losers in the few MTT’s they played. Despite this, almost $100,000 was seized from my accounts.

For those of you that feel safe because my money was taken, open up your eyes. This money will not be returned to the players in any way. PartyPoker is keeping it because they can, just like they did with JJProdigy’s $40,000, and just like they will do to you when you get caught.

I know what you’re thinking right now, “I won’t get caught, because I didn’t do anything wrong.”

First of all, that doesn’t matter. PartyPoker reserves the right to take your money for any reason at any time (although I should point out that this does not make it legal).

Secondly, almost all of you have broken the rules at some point. How many of you have created a second account for rakeback? Neither creating a second account nor receiving rakeback is allowed. Both are expressly forbidden. Maybe you’ll see things my way once all your money is seized for doing that. If I’m a cheater, so are you.

If you are a saint like CSC claims to be, kudos to you. You are in the minority, and are certainly upstanding citizens. I commend you on following Party’s rules and not receiving rakeback. Most of us are too greedy to pass up money that easy.

Furthermore, I would like to point out, that I did NOT break the rules.

5. True Identity and One Account.

The name on your Account must match your true and legal name and identity and the name on your Account registration must match the name on the credit card(s) or other payment accounts used to deposit or receive monies in your Account. You are prohibited from holding more than one Account. If you have more than one (1) Account or Accounts in different names, then you must contact us immediately to have your Accounts managed so that you only have one (1). If you have lost your Account name or password, please contact us for a replacement.

I have one account. That account is named ZeeJustin. My brother also has an account named Bernard61 (formerly jwilson55), and I have used that account quite often. No where in Party’s rules does it say you cannot use someone else’s account. I’m sure many of you have used friends’ accounts before, and there is nothing wrong with this. People will often take over MTT’s for friends that have unforeseen obligations.

I do think what I’ve done is unethical, and I certainly regret doing it, however, I need to point out that no where in Party’s rules is it stated that you cannot enter multiple accounts into the same tournament. Not only do they not forbid it, but to open multiple clients on the same PC, all you have to do is click the icon a bit more rapidly than normal. Great work PartyPoker.

To further show how corrupt PartyPoker is, here is an email I got today from my affiliate manager.

I have not broken the affiliate agreement in any way shape or form, so PartyPoker is using good old clause 5.3 to stop paying me simply because they can. If this makes you feel safe, you are being completely illogical. It can and will happen to more people, this I guarantee. You’re not safe at all.

In conclusion, I want to make it clear that I regret what I did, and have done somethings that were unethical. Despite this, PartyPoker’s actions are unreasonable, and their power to take the same actions against you should not be taken lightly. This rampage that PartyPoker is on will certainly not end with me. So whatever you do, be careful.

Shark: My favorite part is here:

Shark: I felt that this would negate my unethical advantage

haha! He should take this act on the road. What a clown. Cheating other players blatantly (probably even friends of his) then explaining how he "tried to do the right thing".

Of course he doesn't just cheat at PartyPoker, PartyPoker....

Pokerstars opened up their investigation and he goes 0-2 with his robbing of fellow Playas.

Pokerstars wrote this on 2+2:

Hi folks -

We did our own review of ZeeJustin and unfortunately, found that he'd been playing multiple accounts in several tournaments at PokerStars.

* We confiscated the money that he won illicitly.

* We closed his accounts and banned him from PokerStars.

* We are returning the money he won illicitly to players who were harmed by his actions in those same tournaments.

Obviously, we don't like doing this, but the evidence was incontrovertible. We will do whatever it takes to keep our games and tournaments clean.

Best regards,
Lee Jones

Good Post from Pro "Shaniac"
Am I the only won who thinks the MOST remarkable aspect of this is not that he won these tournaments (the big scores on PP and PS) while he was engaged in illicit activities....but that he was able to write about these victories as great accomplishments, with a straight face, on his blog?

I'll post more of this later......

I believe I've played with this ass clown before; the name sounds familiar but I can't remember what site it was. lmao of Shark; his explanation of being at the same table and then opening more tables and can't remembering his whole cards... This guy should do stand up comedy or something.

Hope all is well Sharky,

Student

Does anybody know if he played other sites, surely he has accounts at other sites, like probably UltimateBet, and Absolute Poker, they should probably be alerted to the actions taken by Party and Stars so they can do their own review. Someone may want to give them a heads up on this, nudge-nudge (Sharky), might earn some brownie points with the sites.

Don't worry. Theres an army of players that are turning in cheaters now and asking for investigations. It just needed to be out in the open. IMO, this will be a great thing for Poker long term.

WOW, You have opened my eyes to somehing that I never dreamed could happen. It is sad that one would even want to win in this maner. I don't play poker for the "money" I make a nice living in my real job. I get a high from th strategy of the game. I am glad that these people were caught.

Good stuff, Shark.

I had always suspected this was going on, there just doesn't seem to be a good way to stop it (yet), but it should get better now. What really bothers me is how these two kids have tried to justify their actions. Today's youth are tomorrow's leaders? If that's the case, we are screwed.

These kids are lucky that these poker sites cannot go "Old Vegas" on them and take them on a visit to the desert after pulling these stunts. Losing their illgotten money would be the least of their worries.
