A 2+2 thread about multi-accounting at high stakes tables has sparked a discussion among some of the game’s top young players.
Featuring the likes of Ben ‘Sauce123’ Sulsky, Tom ‘durrrr’ Dwan and Ben Grundy, the thread has quickly developed into an inside view of the happenings in the high-stakes world.The thread was started by a player using the pseudonym ‘pentiumtwoplustwo’ and the opening post quotes various instances of multi-accounting as well as previous comments from the likes of Dwan on the issue.A host of forum regulars soon joined the discussion before Sulsky offered his informed opinion. Being against the practice of using multiple accounts to get action, he confirmed that ‘MAing is a pretty solid advantage and it gets to be a bigger advantage the better the player you are’.Dwan soon joined the conversation, taking a more tolerant view of the issue by saying ‘a lot of people have multi-accounted against me and unless it's a personal friend I don't think it's that big of a deal’.Dani ‘Ansky’ Stern subsequently got involved in the conversation and directed his opening post at Dwan and the pro’s apparent apathy towards the issue.As more pros joined the conversation, the mood gradually started to turn and the last few hours has seen Daniel ‘Jungleman’ Cates become frustrated with Grundy by posting ‘Yo Ben Grundy, I’m waiting for you all day you lil bitch. Any stake you want including 500/1k’.From what started as a serious issue in the industry now seems to have turned in an online soap opera that doesn’t look like it’s going to end any time soon.
