Default Re: Ethicality of High Stakes HU - DaEvila

Honestly, I think that in poker, I'd prefer to play a headsup match against 3 people of equal strength colluding, than one player.

This is very pronounced in blitz chess, when working together with 2-3 people, assuming all are relatively equal strength, generally produces worse results than just playing normally because all the differing viewpoints can be really distracting. At least this has always been my experience.

Whenever I have played poker with someone watching me, it drives me completely insane when they try to give advice that's contrary to what I'm about to do. It's simply impossible to focus when you only have so much time to make a decision.

I think he didnt mean anything against you. I know that you didn't/don't, but I'm sure KRANTZ and whitelime teamed up over the summer as well.

part of online poker imo

while it might be morally questionable, it's not enforceable so the only alternative as i see it is to allow it

I don't think that having somebody help you play is unethical.

Yeah, it only goes against A BASIC FUNDAMENTAL RULE OF POKER.

Difference being, Beal was aware of it and agreed to it before hand. He knew exactly who he was playing. At no point was he playing more than one person simultaneously.

You think Beal would ever agree to a match where Ivey,Barry G. and Doyle were collectively playing every hand against him?
