Swiss poker pro and Twitch Poker streamer Andreas Froehli has claimed that a PokerBros cheating ring is carving millions on the poker app from honest players by colluding in high stakes PLO games.
Fraud alert: wsopchampp + copypaste_ & various other cheaters are making millions colluding on @pokerbros PLO5k+ online. (no diamond hand blasting 3 streets)
This is how highstakes poker cheating really looks like these days. Real poker sites have been losing high stakes action… pic.twitter.com/n7mQjl9BcU

Froehli used the hand above as evidence that collusion is rife on the poker app that private clubs use to play for real money.
“At 25/50 you are either a whale or a cheater if you take this spot,” Froehli says of the hand above. He adds: “If ‘copypaste’ wants to prove he didn’t cheat, all he needs to do is post the HH.”
The app has come under fire numerous times for allowing Pokerbros cheating rings to operate, but claim they have a 97.5% detection rate.
The site’s “Game Integrity Bros” fair play team admits that AI (bots) and RTA (real-time assistance) are big issues, while “we also have incidents of collusion and team play … in both ring games and tournaments”.
Froehli’s claims were backed up by others, the comments including:
- Disgusting Can confirm Bros was RIPEEEEE with cheating when i was firing 2 years ago.
- A more or less illegal app filled with cheaters has actual cheating? Who would have thought.
Nevertheless, Froehli believes something can be done about the collusion and to bust the PokerBros cheating ring.
Yes, but that’s not the point of this tweet – there should be a way to get these colluders
