I believe it is a bot.

He called down a 3bb raise preflop. A 1/2 pot bet post flop, another 1/2 pot bet after turn. Then with only 3 bb left. folded to a bet that was less than 1/10th pot, and would have left it with 15 chips. If you put all but 315 into a pot 25 minutes in, why fold with so little left?

After that fold, I watched its play more closely and noticed action was taken on the count of 0, 1, 2, fold on the 2 count (or call).

I'm not saying it bots every game, but it was very suspicious.

no conspiracy. just observation. How does someone hit fold on the count every time?

You've obviously never watched me.

Oh, but hold on. I forgot. I am a bot. And a multi accounter. And a cat burglar

Was this a PSO?

Sounds like a classic case of ladder climbing. Saving some chips for another hand (or more if there's no antes) to finish higher.

As for how long he took to act each hand, this is pretty typical if you're paying attention to players.

I've tabled with Carp Steak many times both in PSO and outside in other Pokerstars MTT's, and never noticed anything "bot"-like.

I've noticed that whenever I see him I automatically read his name as Crap_Steak.
