Poker and Morality - Would You Use a SuperUser Account?

Superuser 400x300
I was listening to Donkdown Radio last night regarding the latest on the UltimateBet cheating scandal and an interesting question was posed by one of the callers. The question was, if you somehow acquired a superuser account, would you use it? I think that many of us would strongly consider using the account, especially if we thought we could get away with the money like Russ and company have. Why do I think this you ask?  Simply put, when it comes to money and poker, winning money takes precedence over all else. I know many of you out there are thinking that you would never do that and you could not sleep at night.

Recently, WickedChopsPoker published an article going into detail about the UB super user scandal and many of the names involved with assisting Russ Hamilton in moving around money. Also, a Chinese collusion ring was revealed on PokerStars where several players would join and play numerous double or nothing sit n go tournaments. These stories just go to reinforce one important truth that one must realize when playing online poker and that you must ALWAYS look out for cheaters. People cheat at online poker.

WSOP Commentary: Poker and Morality

7 July 2010 , By: compncards
John Bonetti 430x285
For a few weeks now, I have been pondering poker and morality. While some believe that the two are mutually exclusive of each other, it has become quite evident what crimes are unforgivable. *Abuse Can Be Overlooked* Some of you may remember my memories of John Bonetti and how I have said in the past he has reminded me of my grandfather. Well, one thing that John and my grandfather shared was a fiery temper.
