Just wondering if I'm the only one noticing this (which would just make me paranoid, but you cant blame me with all the troubles this site has been having) or if it might be happening so the site can increase its rake.
I've seen a lot of bad beats, and I'm running about 14bi under EV, but that's just the game. It pisses me off more to take the beats in an MTT (as just happened) due to time spent playing, but again, it's the game.
I think a lot of people feel online poker is rigged because of excessive bad beats, but think about how many hands you see in an hour online vs. live. You're going to see A LOT more bad beats in a shorter amount of time. In turn, this makes people feel it's rigged.
