I am a StoxPoker subscriber… What happened recently about Nick Grudzien (StoxTrader) being accused of cheating was very disturbing to me. Because I watched a lot of his videos, because Bryce Paradis defended him and put his reputation on the line, because because… I believed he was innocent.
A recent PTR investigation shows differently. There is a 47 pages PDF file that accompanies that article. I read it and even though I am not a math/stat guru I found it was very well written.
If you want just the cliffs notes, look at the last 4 pages of the 47 page manual. I would still suggest to read the analysis of LittleZen and Knockstiff(STOX-PokerStars). The author gives a lot of detail and explains things very well I think. Kinetica and 40Putts(STOX-FTP) have the same analysis done but in lesser wording since the author already explained the details twice in the LittleZen and Knockstiff analysis.
I think some of the more math savvy guys at StoxPoker (PHZON?, BRYCE?) will be looking into this in more depth and try to find leaks in the analysis… I sincerely hope they succeed… In any case, I think that right now almost everyone in the poker community thinks Nick Grudzien cheated and I am one of them.
This is really a sad day…
