Traffic Plummets at Pitbull Poker Over Superuser Allegations

The allegations of cheating over at Pitbull Poker are flying high and it looks like the site has done very little to address concerns. For those unfamiliar with the situation, user "Chesterboy" and others have alleged that there are superusers at the site. Owners of the site will not talk to the media but have been answering complaints via poker forums such as TwoPlusTwo.

When requested that hand histories be released, the site only released the last 1,000 hands by Chesterboy, but by that point, he had quit playing in the games he felt rigged. Requests for hand histories for a specific time period when he felt the game was rigged were denied.

Furthermore, players that have spoken out against Pitbull Poker, including Chesterboy, have had their IP addresses banned. Also, players are beginning to have a tough time withdrawing money. Also, the max that a user can cash out during a seven day period is only $1,000.

It now looks like another user is coming forth with some hand histories that involve the suspected superuser accounts. What will come for of players investigating this remains to be seen.

In the meantime, Pitbull's refusal to really do anything about this matter has killed their traffic. The site now has a peak of only 50 players in ring games and the traffic is slowing down even further. The usernames associated with the scandal has conveniently disappeared as well.

I don't know about you, but this seems like Pitbull either got caught with their pants down, or with their hand in the cookie jar. I don't have any proof that Pitbull execs are behind the cheating, but looking at their reactions to everything that is going on, one has to at least entertain the idea.

Don't expect this site to stay online much longer. Hopefully some of the other sites will take heed and not follow Pitbull's lead when there are superuser allegation.

    Glen,

    Honestly bro, it dont look good. The following was posted on 2+2 early by a guy claiming to be Dave Brenes. You might be out of luck. You can try and file a complaint with the police where they are located, but it don't look good. Other people are unable to login too.

    hey guys!

    I'm Dave Brenes... I am only returning for one last post... several weeks ago Kevin Baronowski took away the login to 2+2 from me and since then I stopped following up on the threads as per his request. Tonight one of the people at Pitbull called me in at 3am... Kevin and Jordan were trying to take out the computers and leave without saying anything!!!

    I'm effectively not working for Pitbull obviously, but I just wanted to tell you that Pitbull is over... we will make sure things come out clear. I was led to believe many things from the inside and seems it kicked me back in the butt. From where I see it now, Kevin is capable of anything, and I doubt he will pay players or employees by now.

    Kevin and Jordan were taken by the local police thanks to the quick reaction of fellow co-workers who were suspecting foul play and arrived at the office after hours to find them taking out computers and equipment from the offices. I must say my computer was taken before they could arrive so it is lost pretty much.

    I want you to know that while I was at Pitbull I only did my job and follow the instructions given, and I was not fully aware of the real situation, however I would say Kevin is really a scammer.

    Thank you all and I hope you have a good night

    Dave

    I am a player on this site. I have tried to cash out form this site since July 23rd, but to no avail. I currently have approx $7,600 on the site. They've been giving me the run around for the last month concerning my cash outs via email. Today the site won't even open. What's going on? Am I hosed out of all my bank roll?? Is there anything that I can do? This is ridiculous that a poker site can steal my money and get away with it. Let me know if you've heard anything regarding this, and if there's anything that I can do about it.
