Online poker is a freaking scam.

I can e-mail hand histories to backup my stories.

1st table, sit down. play ten hands, all lost due to magical cards on river... change tables, just charge it to the game and say thats poker

2nd table, Play 30 hands, 15 were lost to runner runner draws, mainly backdoor flushes. change tables/lower stakes

3rd table. KK three hands in a row, not once did they hold up... even got raised by a Q8 suited, and a j10 suited preflop twice and they hammer the river...

4th table... sit down, to disgusted to even play, kick cat. take a garbage in neighbors yard, wipe and crash out.

i never claimed poker was rigged, been around it since the age of 5, grandfather was a world class stud player. been involved in poker before the boom. I would never make this assumption unless felt some shadiness was done. Online poker just isn't worth it any more.

Same type of thing happens to everyone who participates in the OLP scam for a good amount of time. Problem is,  many dont want to admit to themselves or others there is something terribly wrong with the deal, even though its quite obvious. They want to play no matter what at any cost. Be it boredom or addiction.

I'm just so disgusted over the beats I have been delt after the big sites collapsed.

the sites we have now are obviously shady to a extreme degree. When pogo.com and facebook have more realistic poker rooms. you know things are shady.

The stuff on this thread is gospel.

Its so true and if you US players miss POKERSTARS your the luckiest people cause they are the worst of the fixed bunch.

When i play on free sites, with no BS and favortism, things go pretty much the way they should, meaning when you go into a showdown 75-25% 20 times you win 15 lose 5.

On the likes of pokerstars, partypoker ect. out of 20 your winning 10 if your lucky and less if you showdowns are vs a player with stars beside them at the kink of the fix pokerstars.

Not to mention the setup hands. Like when you have pocket Qs at least 1/3 times someone has Ks or bullits or almost everytime you are short stacked and you get like pocket 55s, you face a higher pair.

I have sent many Ks to online poker sites and played in every holdem game and stakes from 1 to 200$ tables and frankly dominate, with leads in showdowns, which is the ONLY way to gauge a poker players skills and it really makes NO diff.

The only way to describe it insanely frustrating and as of 2 months ago i have stopped and will never do it again.

With the money i am saving not going to the fix, i am entering in the WS main event on sunday july8th 1b.

NOVICE, your richer for your desision. See you in vegas in july maybe.
