Full Tilt Crash! Fulltiltpoker crashes

Today at 3:15pm EST Fulltilt crashed and has been down for more than 30 nminutes now.

I was playing in a $10+1 tourney and had a substantial chip lead 4th with 320 people left)

Just my luck!
I wonder if this has anything to do with the lawsuit filed this morning by Lary Kennedy and Greg Omotoy, who claim owners of Fulltilt poker Chris "Jesus" Ferguson, Howard Lederer, Phil Ivey and Mike Matusow, (among others) refused to pay out more than $80,000 in their accounts after Fulltilt accused them of using Robots (poker bots) to win. The pair said they are skilled as well as fortunate in their massive wins.

The pair claim Fulltilt is the one using poker bots and intend to provide proof at the upcoming lawsuit.

As a side note, it has always been my contention that online poker sites use bots, algorithms and subroutines to skew the real statistics. Kennedy and Omotoy also allege that the bots used by Fulltilt are designed to make the game a game of chance and luck and purposely ignore the statistical odds of the game.

Is it possibly true what they are saying? hmmm! are online poker sites using software to keep your winning hands from winning online poker?

If you have received constant bad beats and horrible suckouts, that may well explain the problem.

Nevertheless, one has to wonder, why did Fulltilt just suddenly decide to investigate kennedy and omotoy's withdrawal?
Is it because they KNOW nobody should be able to severly beat their software like they did?

again... hmmm!

Methinks every online poker player should invest in a way to beat the software and then maybe they would remove the unfair algorithms they use!
