comment Do two or more players colluding against honest players gain on average more money, or not?
@hmmmm, let's assume you're right. Here's my thinking. It's trivially easy for me and and a bunch of buddies to develop a set of signals that allow us to collude at the poker table (or, online). IF it was effective, and casinos didn't fight it, every card sharp and hustler would do it, and it'd become conventional wisdom that poker it full of cheats. Games would quickly dry up, poker rooms would shut down, and casinos would lose that revenue. Given that none of that has happened, my best guess is that the most plausible explanation is that the advantage gained is negligible.
