I'm sitting there at just a 1/3 no limit table and I'm pretty big after about 1.5 hours. A new guy sits at the table I'm at and he is clearly a horrible player as I take just a few pots from him. Well, I'm a folding machine and play position A LOT! I will only play out of position if I have something pretty damn good. Anyway, next thing I know, this same person is in on every pot that I'm in on, and I'd be sitting with A, K or A, Q, QQ and stuff like that. So we get into some big pots and FOUR times this VERY SAME PERSON takes my money on the River! They were unbelievable bad beats and it was four times in a row. Now even more odd than that is after I was EXACTLY back to the money amount in which I started, this 'person' left the table.

It was honestly like a bot or like he could see my cards. More than that, it seemed like it was an Employee who was sent in to take down my winnings and then get the f*ck outta dodge. I've never seen anything like it before. This may sound really stupid, but it almost scares me off of Full Tilt enough to never go back there, even though I'm an above average poker player. Maybe I should have stuck to WPT.com

get used to the bad beats there more dummies play bad hands and get lucky,basically all sites are the same.

only site where the bad beats occur less is partypoker,my opinion is the best site out there.

Well I was on a tight behind table. I play pretty tight but pick my spots to bluff, and eye out the people to bluff at. I could tell this joker was horrible as he threw all in with hopes of hitting an Ace on the River at one point. But once the pots grew bigger (and I knew I had this clown dominated) he hits his straight on the river (all in) and I was sitting with A, Q and a Q on the board for 4th street.....then an Ace on the river to give me 2 pair but to give this joker his straight. It was sick beats like that, all from the same guy, four freaking times. Shitty thing is, of course I get pissed off and end up throwing all in about 5 minutes later with two Aces.....and another dude hits a set of 9s to take me out....and I end up losing my stack.

It was unreal. That last hand, that was kind of my fault because that 9 came on the turn and I should have folded, but the guy had previously bluffed some people....still my fault though. Anyway, I'm sure I'll get back on the wagon. There are some SERIOUS suckers on the Full Tilt scene. I'm no Phil Ivey or anything like that, but there are so many people on there that just have no clue. Then again, like you said that can be a bad thing sometimes because you get beat in hands that some moron really shouldn't be playing in to begin with!

There is always a dink and it is a kick in the nuts when they hit felt it and seen other players suffer too. Full tilt is a good site,great for tournements but have many stories could be here all day bringing up bad beats.

like i said previous all sites are the same with bingo players. Once other sites like Partypoker-888-PKR start accepting states customers try them out,bad beats are less at these sites

Hilarious

 

Its real simple guys. If youre not consistently winning at the microstakes you guys are playing than youre just not as good as you THINK you are, PERIOD.

 

Every guy like you "rigged" guys who has sent me their hand histories all it is is misplayed hand after misplayed hand than they take a beat and blame their whole tourney and poker "career" on that beat. Weak excuses from weak players. Send me a hand history and I bet I'll find errors in at least 1 out of every 5 hands you play, if not 1 of 2.

 

But its excuse making donks like you guys that keep the poker world profitable so thank you for that

If you keep getting all your money in when the odds are strongly in your favor (>= 80%) and the river consistently beats you, I would definitely be concerned about the programming.  But if you are letting him see cheap flops and turns by getting cute and greedy, then I would say it is probably your questionable play instead.

you said it yourself, you were at a tight behind table, then the donk came in playing loose ,and hit and ran ,beleive it or not happens a lot , maybe if he continued to sit down for a couple more hours, and yor bank is big enough to take beats you can get your money back, ther are many ups and downs in poker and especially online ,the swings online can be very violent especially if your not managing your money correctly which a lot of us are not

We discuss bad beats Soblantant all of a sudden we are branded losers,idiots etc. I chat with alot of players they have the same opinion,but they must be losing players i guess,well Chance some of these are winning players who do well playing online poker.

So relax let others share opinions whether they are against yours.

The reason I get so harsh is cuz 95% of what these guys say in their stories is bullshit and 100% of them are shitty players. Seriously, have you ever heard a professional poker player (anyone from Doyle to Daniel to ivey to ANYONE) say that they think online is rigged? So all these people who know poker better than anyone dont think its rigged yet Joe Covers does cuz he got sucked out of his $50 deposit, its just such horse garbage and people just looking for reasons as to why they dont suck.

 

The UB/Absolute scandal was complete horseshit. But that was guys seeing hole cards in the nosebleed stakes, not "the site rigging hands" like these morons claim. Also, not one person who has ever posted in this forum about it being rigged fell victim to that scandal in their little $5 games yet they see that piece on 60 minutes and say "DAMN! I knew I was good at poker, I got fucked thats how I lost" Once again, just complete friggin hogwash. Also, collusion happens live as well. I play 1-on-1s so thats no problem for me but you get what im saying.

 

So then i have a few of these "rigged" clowns send me histories of their tournies and i look thru them and the guys are just misplaying hands all over the friggin place, then taking one semi bad beat and blaming their whole poker "career" on that beat. Just donks making excuses and trying to make themselves feel better about being shitty player

 

Do i need to go on? Cuz I will!!!! lol
