PokerTribe.com may update or modify its website content at anytime and may require the user to accept such updates and install them on whatever device are use to access the website. The user agrees that PokerTribe.com may change its content at any time and without notice, and some updates or modifications may affect third party access to PokerTribe.com and may require additional upgrades from those sites to access PokerTribe.com.
Subject to the users compliance, PokerTribe.com grants a non-exclusive, non- transferrable and revocable limited license to access PokerTribe.com and use the content for its intended purpose, and for no other purpose. Users accept that virtual currency or any facsimile is not a physical item and is not owned by the user, and that such items are non-negotiable except for their intended purpose.
The user provides any equipment and any software needed to connect a device to PokerTribe.com, and the user is responsible to for any fees, or cost, including internet access fees or mobile fees the user is assessed for using PokerTribe.com.
Having established a valid account on PokerTribe.com, the user assumes all access responsibility and accountability, including financial responsibility and the following applies:
The user acknowledges that if their connection drops or becomes disconnected the game will continue, and the user will be notified in the game and given the option to reconnect. If the user reconnects in time before player action timeout, the game state will be restored and allowed to continue. The user acknowledges that PokerTribe.com is not responsible if their connection is lost due to third party software or hardware. If a players does not respond and the player has the option to check, the server will automatically check the user, if there is a current bet the user will be kicked from the table.
In the unlikely event of a server crash which prevents completion of a hand, the hands in progress at every table (tournaments and cash games) will be restored by rolling back these hands as if they had not happened. Each player's chip count will be reset to the amount at the beginning of the hand.
We understand that a use of a fair and unpredictable shuffle algorithm is critical to our software. In a computer, shuffling is equivalent to generating a random permutation of the cards. Generally known as the Knuth shuffle or Fisher-Yates shuffle, is a linear-time algorithm (as opposed to the previous O(n log n) algorithm if using efficient sorting such as merge sort or heap sort) which involves moving through the pack from top to bottom, swapping each card in turn with another card from a random position in the part of the pack that has not yet been passed through (including itself). Providing that the random numbers are unbiased, this will always generate a random permutation. Our RNG code has been independently tested by third party labs.
Collusion is a form of cheating in which two or more players signal their holdings in a game, or otherwise form a cheating partnership to the detriment of the other players at the same table.
While on one hand it is easier to pass information between colluding players online than it is in brick & mortar rooms, it is much more difficult to avoid eventual detection, as the cards for all players can be examined after the play.
No matter how sophisticated the collusion is, it must involve a play of a hand that would not be played that way without collusion. Our detection methods are aimed to catch unusual play patterns and warn the security personnel, who will then make a thorough manual investigation. We will also investigate all players' reports about suspected collusion.
If any player is found to be participating in any form of collusion his or her account may be permanently closed.
