I have been playing poker for perhaps 3 months, am completely hooked and follow this forum and rec.poker

Russ Georgiev posts fairly prolifically on there and as you can rarely get a sensible answer from anyone there I thought I would pose my questions here,

From his theory/tactics posts he seems a competent player with some well thought out views. He claims to scam online games. He also claims to know that various people are or are not cheats. He has posted numerous emails from well known names where they openly discuss who cheats and who doesn't.

I will not name the names he mentions but I assume most have seen this now which of these is correct

a) the majority of people in the poker world distrust him or believe his claims to be untrue and so ignore him

b) no one plays at the stakes he talks about people getting scammed so he ignores them

c) sure some people are bound to cheat as they do in all sports/gambling scenarios

I suppose what I am getting at is if he has what he says he has then surely with the huge poker boom in the US he must be able to capitilise on it better than with a few rec.gambling posts
