Absolute issues statement claiming NO super-user account. Yeah, right.

Cardplayer has published a statement by Absolute Poker claiming there is not now, nor has there ever been, a super-user account enabling anyone to see another player’s hole cards on their site. I guess they call it something else.

    In that statement, Absolute also claims that $1,600 was the amount reimbursed to players. Really? That’s all the money that was stolen? I have a feeling a Todd Witteles statement will follow very soon.

    I can’t believe that after all this time, they’re still minimizing it all and making it seem like no big deal. That’s more insulting than anything.

    I found the statement in ALL IN magazine — who knew they were still around?

    Interesting that they assert “As Former Grand Chief Joe Norton, the 100% owner of AP,” … so there we have it … Mark Seif is NOT an owner … which means it should be easy for him to abandon this company. And based on their own statement, it’s hard to see how he wouldn’t.

    This statement gives NOTHING. sure, they tell you the name of malicious accounts, but where is a name — like a real human’s name — of people involved operating said accounts? I’ll say it now, this sorta “there’s nothing to see here” approach is a continued cover-up/denial. It’s like the Catholic Church each time they lost a pedophile priest case, and like Ken Lay telling people to keep buying Enron stock. I know I am preaching to the choir here, but this statement is more damning than exculpatory.

    One thing, Jen … I think the 1,600,00 is a typo — a missing zero, not a comma that should be a period.

    I hope the 1600 is a typo, but in an official statement, it is what it is. They need to release a correction. Better yet, they should make sure their statements are released without errors. Isn’t their reputation important enough to even attempt to do this right?

    I did just see a copy of the same statement on http://www.PokerNews.com, and Haley shows it as $1.6 million.

    Dan, you’re right, it seems like a typo on the part of All In. What a place to not edit properly!

    I do stand by my opinion that someone should edit the AP statements, too… Misspelled words in an official statement just look bad.
