    Default Pitbull Poker comes under fire

    Small online poker room Pitbull Poker has come under fire in many online message boards over the past weekend. There are threads accusing the room of lax security, superuser accounts, and "stack shaving."

    One of the major allegations goes back to December of 2008 for “stack shaving,” where money in a player’s stack would simply disappear between hands. According to several posts, players reported that the range of money that would vanish was between $0.02 and $25. A posted reply from Network Manager Dave Brenes of Pitbull Gaming appears to admit that this error took place and that players would be reimbursed.
    Poker News Daily has a good wrap-up of all the accusations:

    Looks like another addition to the black list is in order. I played there when they 1st opened and never really cared for the software. Glad I have stayed away.

    Another example of how any brand can go bad/under overnight. I no longer have faith in ANY of these sites to be fair anymore.

    Grand Prive' & Vegas Affiliates and even more brands use to be 'trusted' and look what happened there.

    Atleast GW (which is thought of badly by many) pays on time and I've not had one complaint yet!
