    Default Consequences of "under-the-table" rakeback deals?

    What are the consequences of privately offering/accepting rakeback deals that violate a site's rules? E.g. the site might not allow rakeback, or only allows deals up to a certain percentage but you offer higher. These deals happen all the time, and I'm skeptical that there are many consequences to them. A player told me they were afraid to do them because he though he could have his account closed and lose his money (which I'm very skeptical of). But I thought I'd ask about the risk to a player/affiliate just to know.

    I doubt there is too much risk to the player. On the affiliate side I've had legit balances confiscated from a room I never broke their rules, due to having been previously blacklisted on network. In one case I am near certain the poker room (a large one too) freerolled against me, but at time (mid 2007) I was habitual offender, breaking rules elsewhere and getting paid (wasn't worth it on the skin that stole from me) so I never made a public issue out of it. To be clear all players I sent that particular room followed terms and conditions - but because I was blacklisted from the network this room decided they didn't need to pay me and kept the players I sent. By time 2008 rolled around I lost interest in gaming the system and decided to focus more on delivering value to visitors and the rooms and collect money in process.

    I doubt they would ever close the account of any player who is generating a significant amount of rake, but the affiliate revenue would certainly be in the sites cross hairs.

    i have no idea what the hell you're talking about. try harder.

    my post was simply meant to say that the OP sounded a whole lot like "a friend of mine has this problem and i was wondering...", which is to say he wasn't asking for a friend but for himself.

    This thread takes a moment to process, but then gets quite funny once understood.

    I don't think there was too much to read into in the OP. If reading into it says something like "I tried offering private rakeback and my player was skeptical" or "hey I want to offer private rakeback, what are my risks?" or was just cassual. Either way the friend reference didn't at all seem to be a cover up thing - the question seemed pretty straight forward.

    So what happened is: Chris responded reading into it a bit or w/e.

    Then his response was misunderstood by pokerworx, who though the a player told me was directed at his post of "Battlefield Poker = players lose affiliate/s?? " as to stay something like yeah a player told you they lost at Battlefield huh? which triggered a retaliation post.

    Its actually pretty funny after deciphering who is reading what how and what each is responding to.
