Obviously online poker cheating is strictly forbidden by the poker sites and any attempt to cheat that is detected will end with your account frozen and funds seized.
Online poker sites have invested significant amounts of money into sophisticated systems to detect cheating.
As with anything that involves money, there are always people trying to beat the system. Luckily, online poker sites realize their integrity is crucial to their success, and go to great lengths to protect their players from cheaters. If an online site notices you “chip dumping”, or sending chips to a friend, you will be banned for life.
If the online poker sites’s fraud detection system notices you colluding, or playing together with a friend to maximize profits, they will ban you for life. This is a serious offense and they will not give a warning; your accounts will be seized immediately and they will not listen to your excuse about not knowing the rules.
