#5 - Playing on the sites that are the most rigged.




I did not write my post to say that the SITES WERE RIGGED , so therefore I would never pick #5

You asked the question to all......what was the worst mistake you made & I believe that "Staying at one Poker Site too long was mine"., And I also believe that with-in those so-called random number generators are implanted programs that bump up the rake & also put players in distribution modes & programs to keep that poker site alive & well for their own interest.......no matter the cost !!

These poker sites are not governed or safeguarded by anyone & its up to the big shots over-seas whether they want to program the "funk" or not.........Also you have absolutely no idea who these people are or even where they are at......( the only contact any of us have to these poker sites , is that little blue withdraw check we get in the mail from Georgia ).... And if you don't believe that - then you are in the dark my friend

If you really believe this and yet you still have been playing online poker for three years while losing the whole time, then you deserve everything that comes your way. Why would you throw money at a game you believe is rigged against you?

Do you also enjoy three-card Monte?

I have played over 1 million online hands of poker & its getting easier & easier to track & spot the hands that are programed for big rakes...I have also folded KK & QQ pre-flop on numerous occasions - ( only to huge pre-flop raises )....because of this very reason.

It is easy to see these trends in the RNG after awhile & hopefully I will be able to keep avoiding these dumps & not buying too many golf balls for the big boys at the top !!

And no , I haven't just played online for years only to lose all the time. I am a poker player that has takin alot of crap/azz beats recently & I'm mad !!.......you can deal with that or not.

You mean that people play the monthly $10 sober! I thought I was going wrong somewhere.

I played far too conservatively. But then, I still do.

And poker sites are definitely rigged. I'm an excellent poker player, so how do you explain the fact that I occasionally lose hands I thought I was winning? There. I've run logical rings round you.

I don't know what's more comical, reading some of Skid_1's posts or the fact that my fat guy on a horse in a tinfoil hat was used in a quote. I love that picture.
