Firstly I have no idea what the hell they are talking about, I have absolutely no relationship with that screen name. Secondly, could they be any more presumptious, rude and generally threatening before they've even contacted me for clarification. Thirdly, has this happened to anyone else before? Looking at those hands they sent me I have no idea why they would think anything untoward was happening, can anyone?
I mean the first hand I folded bad queens pre, maybe its a bad fold im still learning plo but a small mistake maybe.
Then the second hand I was very sure my opponent had quads so checked back and I was correct.

Are Stars really suspending accounts based on how fishy you play hands these days or is this some huge misunderstanding?
