Ban is an offensive thing and extremely unpleasant for any Internet user, including the visitor to the poker rooms.
Sometimes, a player’s bad faith and a desire to cheat, and sometimes a simple ignorance, which is not an excuse, is behind the actions that lead to blocking. So why poker rooms can punish a poker player?
1. Playing with multiple accounts
Large poker rooms often provide beginners with many nice bonuses. Therefore, dishonest players for the purpose of gaining multiple accounts.
Another reason for multi-accountancy is the desire to increase the chances of winning prizes.
The logic of such players is as follows: if you register at a poker tournament from several pages at once, then there will be more chances to win! When the fraud is revealed, the user immediately goes to the ban.
Sometimes the reason for this behavior is much simpler. The player can drop your account and forget the password. Is not it easier then to start a new account and not suffer, trying to restore the old one?
The answer is: no, not simpler, because after that the user may find that they have restricted his access to the poker room. It is better to contact the technical support of the poker room to restore the old account.
2. Play with a different account and for another person.
Some players do not create additional accounts, and play on behalf of another person.
This again can be done because of the desire for additional benefits. Or in the country where the player lives, online poker is prohibited. Or maybe the poker player is not yet 18, and when registering, he entered the data of his adult relative.
In any situation, the poker room will strictly punish the offender. Even the legendary player Dan Bilzerian, who violated this rule, did not escape Kara.
3. Chip Dumping and Team Play
Teamwork is good. But if this is teamwork during a poker game, when your friend / brother / matchmaker or someone else plays with you, knowing your cards (or vice versa) is very bad. And it is punishable.
Or you out of the goodness of your heart decided to lose a certain amount of money to your companion. This will also lead to bad consequences. This practice is used by fraudsters, losing money to their own account and thereby laundering money that has been dishonestly earned.
4. The use of prohibited programs
Before installing a poker program on your computer, be sure to check if it is not prohibited by one of the poker rooms.
If in doubt, it is better to double-check and contact the support service of a specific room and clarify this issue. The ban does not apply to such popular programs as Holdem Manager 2 and Poker Tracker 4.
