History of the Superuser
No one would have expected that a major poker site would allow a superuser function to exist, but a series of events in 2007 and 2008 revealed that superusers not only existed, but were being employed on a regular basis by cheats at Absolute Poker and UB.com in a consistent effort to defraud the sites' players.
