Re: Rigged?

Re: Rigged?

I also "don't want to be that guy".

BUT... I'm seeing an enormous amout of quads in single table SNG's.

I've only been playing here about 10 days, part-time. I'm not yet using a tracker or saving HH's, so sorry I can't post them. I would estimate that I've seen 4 of a kind 15-20 times in a hundred SNG's. I've also seen other situations that have me wondering.

Does anyone have a signifigant sample size of play on the new Revolution Lock that they can compare to Stars, specifically in regards to the appearance of quads? (4 of a kind)

Seriously, I would love to be a Lock fanboy, but the deal seems off, and I was a fulltime winning player on Stars. If they can't get a handle on their software after 14 days, why should we believe the RNG is working properly?

CAN SOMEONE WITH A LARGE SAMPLE SIZE PLEASE COMPARE AGAINST OTHER SITES?

Thank-you.

That isn't a remarkable amount. If random hands go to the river then quads will show up once every 595 hands (per player) on average. Considerably more often than that in real play with real hands since unpaired hands are folded way more often than paired hands. At a 9-player table with 20% showdowns I think you would see a quads somewhere around every 200 deals or so on average.

not that unusual tbh, although stakes are higher you usually see for this kinda thing. think about with HU PLO the amount of variance and 5K hands is a tiny sample so this is totally possible. all that said i still hate Lock poker and can't wait to get me money off there :/

Umm... no. You're focusing on a hand's rank without considering it's actual equity. Look up equities with sets vs trips. Trips are highly vulnerable, not as well disguised, and tend to be action killers unless villain makes a boat to crush you. They should be regarded as entirely different hands.

I've played online poker for 8 years and oddly enough have never had AA vs AA so was shocked to see it.
Had qq vs qq last month playing live poker. Made me lol. To all those saying online is rigged. If it was other people would discover it by now. Try playing live cash full time. I had several days in two months flopping at least 4th or 5th nuts and losing the hand. Last time I played live, I flopped the nuts three times and lost each time. Made me quit live. If that was online others would say rigged. It's the way poker goes sometimes

+1 to this. its all just confirmation bias w/ online poker. honestly the craziest **** i've ever seen has been live. Saw AA vs KK vs QQ 9-handed just the other day. Q on the flop. dirty!

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.

"Wrongg" has only lost ~$300k to _GimmeDAT_, and the next biggest loss would be ~$30k.

_GimmeDAT_ has a winrate of 50BB/100 @ ~900 hands playing $100/$200 PLO HU



Money laundering much?

No, probably not money laundering. Although wrongg seems to suck at high stakes plo though. He should probably find a new hobby.

GimmeDAT reminds me of isildur back in the FTP days. Seriously. Maybe it's Blom playing while he's in the states for the wsop?
