So why does this one guy keep following me around from table to table? Either I suck or he can see my cards.

Maybe you use similar strategies for picking tables.

It happened to me almost 2 years ago on one of the major poker sites. The cheating idiot typed into the wrong chatbox (I suppose he was running an instant message program) and tried to cover it up. Anybody that tells you it can't happen is extremely naive. That said, I play online regularly but I won't touch the site where it happened because I have more fear that there are significant security issues there than at other sites.

One other thing, I was running a Sygate Personal Firewall at the time. I was not extremely adept at using it, though. I required every outgoing and incoming program to ask for access. I may have let something that looked innocent through or they could have gotten through the firewall.

The odds of an opponent being able to see your cards are astronomically high against.

He probably believes you play poorly and/or he "knows how best to play you."

If you are playing on the Party network, you can remove yourself from being found in a player search. Some other online cardrooms support this as well.

There are very few players that know how to do it, but they are out there and they play quite a bit. Please do not use the term "astronomically high" when describing this. Everyone should be vigilant at all times.

It's actually extremely possible.
There was once a trojan going around the internet that when you had it installed on someone elses computer you could view their computer screen in real-time, stuff like this still exists.

[/ QUOTE ]
True - but viewing a specific opponent's cards would imply that you would also need to break into the poker site's system to retrieve the internet addresses of the other players at your table and then somehow get the trojan installed on those user's computers so you could view there screen.

I'm not losing sleep over these "longshot" possibilities.

You would not need to break into the poker site for this information..

Ever hear of packet sniffing? Ip's are very easy to get.

Do you think that the packets being sent to and from your computer contain specific IP information on the other players in the games your participating in? I don't.

I was kidding. But I do think Trojans are something to be wary of. If I do find some guy following me from table to table, I'd be paranoid enough to at least think it's possible.

I'd go with your play before anything else, it is more likely......has he said anything to make you think one way or the other? I follow around a couple of the bigger fish(am not calling you one, he easily could be misjudging your play or chasing you because of a bad beat you put on him) so I would guess that before the other things..

I think Many Prima PLayers have developed a software that enables them to see the turn and river before they happen. I lost 3 hands in a SNG yesterday where i was respectively 91%, 82%, & 86% favorites when the chips went in. They must know whats coming.

Doh, I'm usually pretty good at picking up on that.

A lot of multitabling TAGs sort by avg. potsize and find themselves at the same tables.
