When you tell someone that you play on the internet, sometimes people ask if you're worried about cheating. I would say no. Are there people who have hacked into the software and can get themselves dealt the winning hand or see my hand? No. Are there computers playing? Maybe a few, but it's unlikely there are any doing it on a large scale.
The most rampant kind of cheating is two people who know each other playing in the same game. They can share information and use teamwork during hands, which is a textbook case of cheating. But online poker software programs and poker downloads have detection methods to catch people doing that kind of thing. And, the people who do it are usually novice poker players who generally aren't good enough to beat the games even by cheating.
