If you think that the poker sitets software is capable of detecting high end cheating, you're dead wrong. Much like in real life, you only need to win one or two big hands in any given cash game to come out with the money, the software doesn't even have a chance to pick this kind of thing up. What it does pick up is the kids who run two computers, one on their phone lines, and one on their cable hook up, these kids sit both accounts down at the same table and make the kinds of bets and folds that the software picks up. The kids get their 100 bucks frozen, but meanwhile, the pros are taking you for thousands of dollars. The ONLY way to know you're not being cheated is to stay on tables that are under a dollar for the big bet. As soon as you get into even a 1-2 table, there will be cheaters present. NO ONLINE POKER SITE IS SAFE FROM CHEATS AND COLLUDERS! You've got to bet very small, or very big. On the huge money cash game tables, most have got a site "host" watching the game full time anyway, and they are usually experienced poker players who know what to look for. On the small money tables, it's just not worth while for the cheat. On big money tournements online, you're probably only going to be watched closely after they've gotten down to five or so tables, before that the tourney's are full of cheats running two or more online ID's at the same time. Even if they don't have both computers running at the same time in the same place, you can expect that many players sitting at the same table are running third party chat software at the same time as they're playing, and letting each other know what their hands are, and how they each will bet. Not that a bricks and mortar game is totally safe, but it's a whole heck of a lot safer than any given online game. You may only play half the hands in a B&M game, but over time you'll probably have actually made more money by not getting cheated on the one or two huge pots per game that most players get into.
