thanks, i would pass that along to whichever cretin i've been quoting in my sig for the last five years if i could remember who it was.

also britain isn't alone in its rejection of the euro. firstly, the euro is the currency of the european union, not europe. so, for instance, norway retains the krone, being as it is a non EU country. secondly, a number of recent inductees have not yet adopted the euro and are still using their own currency; poland, romania, bulgaria, etc. thirdly, while all eu countries are obliged to join the euro at some point, the united kingdom and denmark negotiated opt outs in the maastricht treaty in 1992 and 1993 respectively. finally, sweden while officially on the road to the euro has deliberately failed to meet the necessary criteria to join and nobody seems to care.

so Pokerstars DO influence the cards that drop
they don't merely influence them, they determine them. pokerstars deliberately selects each and every card that comes into play.

Quote:
it should just be random selection with no over-riding factors involved :/
the concept of randomness is exactly that, a concept. randomness does not exist, there are no random processes, merely processes whose mechanism is not or cannot be understood.

congratulations, you have ported a meme.

"Pokerstars is rigged, i can tell from some of the hand histories and having played quite a bit irl over the last 5-6 yrs."

somebody with photoshop skills take care of business please.
