It's a 50 cent 45 man, both players are Russian.

I'd call it a chipdump, but you never really know so, what do you think?

Am I to suspicious?

This does look a bit dodgy. It might well be innocent and was just a mis-click/timeout, but I think it's worth sending an email to Pokerstars and if others have noticed similar behaviour, they can take action accordingly.

After reading the response in this thread I did send a mail to pokerstars explaining what happened.

They already answered, they are doing a review and will keep me up to date.

Stars is good at taking care of this sort of thing so they will get things sorted if there was softplay.

It's either terrible play or softplay.

I recieved a mail from Pokerstars, the investigation showed that those guy's were indeed playing togetter.

It turns out that they spoke about it in chat, so they probably werent aware that is was collusion.

Well good on you. This is why chat should always be English at the tables.

There is actually a bit of a loophole in the system. Several times I have called mods to a table where there has been 'foreign' chat as there was collusion or abuse at tables I have played, after checking on google translate. The mods reply several times? 'Sorry we do not translate non English chat'. I know that you can email security and then they can look at it but it just seems what is the point of having mods if they can't act to nip problems in the bud?

I know it is only .50c but hope you got financial compensation also?

We should always report things we feel are suspicious, let's keep the game clean and honest.

Yes, I was moved from second place to first, Stars deposited $1.95 in my account.

Looking back, I am happy with the results and the way Stars handled the situation. I did not do it to get money, but i'll find a use for it, I'm sure.
