The first question asked, “You’re playing heads up in a tournament, your opponent disconnects, what do you do and comment why if you feel strongly either way.” The only two options for responses were “Sit out and wait” or “Actively steal the blinds.”

Out of the 7,531 responses, 83% indicated that they would steal the blinds. The results astonished even Mike Matusow, who commented, “This just shows how disgraceful so many people in our poker community are. There is no way that I wouldn’t sit out to wait for person to comeback. any otheAccording to Twitter users, poker players are unethicalr decision is flat out stealing.”

A second question posed “You find out that your favourite poker site has manual error on your account where they pay extra 25% rakeback.”

1,148 people responded, or 56% of respondents, chose that they would “Rake as much as possible” as opposed to “Tell them” or “Keep playing normally”.  Only 12% said they would “tell them”.
