There are many other stats I have I am not sharing because we are trying to come up with some way to get a lawsuit together if possible which it is probably not because of how protected these people are. However if anyone is interested you can email me at dayyuuuumx3@aim.com. I have had better results on the merge network and have made the full switch in the last month. GL at the tables although luck has nothing to do with it.
Let me get this straight. The player who always has position wins a majority of the pots they play and the player in the worst position the table loses a majority of the pots he pays? Also the more aggressive player wins the pot a majority of the time? This leads you believe it is rigged? I thought playing in position and using tactful aggression were considered fundamentals because they made players lose more

I'm sorry you are running as poorly as you are, but you'll need to make a stronger case than good poker wins more pots if you want to be taken seriously.

Look, anybody with any sense at all can see that it is kind of funny how everyone has the same pattern. I mean I just deposited on that gay site about 24 hours ago and I'm already sick to my stomach with this stupid crap.

Sorry this is happening to you but don't worry, you're not alone. We're all getting screwed. There is no way under the sun that this many people would have this same common story if it was not rigged.

River after River on this site. Worst than any other site besides Gay ass Bovada


I feel like I'm playing more against the software then the player!

This can't be just variance... its way too common and happening to lots of people in the same manner.
Not saying it is rigged, but I'm definitely not ruling it out. If this was a U.S ran site I would definitely have a different opinion.
But who knows where this server is located? Someones basement? These sites are only here to make money. Their not here to make us happy or to mock the DOJ. They want our money only, so to say they couldn't have something in place that helps that along is just plain unrealistic.
If there is a way for them to write some unique code to make deposits happen more often, you better believe they are doing it.
There is no one regulating, watching, or caring what they are doing to the software. No One!!

Re: Rigged?

Sorry, but this is the part that makes me chuckle a bit..."If this was a U.S ran site I would definitely have a different opinion"...regulation doesn't make things better. And certainly, the first thing that comes to mind is the 100% American owned and operated previous FULL TILT POKER. Enough said.

They don't even make money off a deposit directly.. Infact, it costs them ~10% for every deposit you make (to pay the payment processor) deposit 500$ = 50$ costs for them.

The only thing they make money off is rake, simple as. A site would theoretically make most money by making sure its playerbase is about equally good as possible (so no either extremes of bad or really good players, but rather all mediocre players: this would generate most rake.)

If you say their software is making it so that it trys to put as much bad beats as possible on a good player, then it would make some sense, it would indeed be good for their economy. That being said, a good player WILL by default statistically get most suckouts and coolers, because they'll most often actually have the goods when the money goes in (ofcourse).

Re: Rigged?

I'm not saying it's "rigged", but I have never seen so many disgusting beats at incredible times on any site that I've played on since 2004.

As someone mentioned, I felt like I was playing against the RNG. It was constant and consistent 2 and 3 outers. Under pairs hitting sets and A-Rag hitting the rag vs a higher ace or hitting the ace vs a pair.

KK was an absolute nightmare to get dealt and the only way I could win with it was either vs AA or if everyone folded.

It wasn't just happening to me, it was happening to everyone at my tables.

I'm not saying it's rigged, but the site is just not for me.

Were the suckouts happening to the guy you got Kings vs aces with? There's always someone on the other side, i hope you see the fallacy. In th end the site gains nothing by making specific people win, they gain by rake, so why would they rig it?

Yeah maybe i could push when i have ace rag and hit vs kk ninty percent of the time etc. Changing your game isn't going to change your results. If you do change up and get it in bad as opposed to good you will just lose your money that much faster. There aren't as many winners as people think there are although you would think it was the other way around. I don't buy the more hands played thus more bad beats. Its when the big money goes in that the bad beats count and thats where online poker dosen't compare to live poker for instance imo. Variance my .......

Ive had plenty of bad beats llive so i realize bad beats do happen live just not at the rate they do online when all the money is on the line whether its in mtt or cash game. Much easier to win live then online at least for me.

Yes i realise your leveling with the deposits but people do really belive in the exploiting the rng theory when there really isn't any way to exploit the online rng.

Regarding KK, yes, the only time I was comfortable with them was when the other player flipped up AA cause I knew then I had a chance lol.

I'm not saying it's rigged, been playing online for 8 years now and have stayed away from rigged discussions.

I'm saying the site became a nightmare to play on for me. I stopped playing there based on it not being fun anymore and the fact I can't get my cashout.

I'd like to point out though that there is certainly motivation to "rig" the RNG. It's very simple, to keep the money on the site flowing from one player to another as to maximize the rake. I just don't think Lock is doing this, but the motivation is there.

I didn't feel this when Lock was on Merge and am playing on another skin on Merge and I feel just fine there. I noticed this after the move to the Cake network.

I'm happily playing on 2 other sites that don't have me punching my screen throughout each session.

Re: Rigged?

I think variance is something very big the human mind can barely if at all comprehend, it can turn around any moment i think, but it also might not, simple as, especially in poker i think it's far bigger than most people think, but that's just me

I completely agree with you.

I also think it's perfectly ok for me to take my business elsewhere based on my own personal experiences.

I run really bad at Bellagio too, so I don't play there anymore either. I certainly don't think Bellagio is rigged.

Ofcourse it is. But realise it won't matter, as i said, your luck on any other site could turn around any moment just as much as it could turn around on Lock.

I hear you, though, this is just how the human brain works easy to talk as an outsider who isn't experiencing this.. I'd probably swap site aswell, even when i realise it doesn't actually change anything, so yeah..

Actually it changes everything for me.

I was miserable playing on Lock and now I'm back to my happy self.

Psychology is huge in this game and that site was literally driving me insane.

Why is everyone getting butt Hurt over something so stupid lol... I'm in the same boat. I think I have only seen aces over aces over another počet face card two times or so.

Anyways, op, no online poker is not rigged at all. Utilize bankroll management and ur bad beats won't be as bad....

In reply to my other post. The numbers are not even close to being accurate. Btn maybe win 10-20% of showdown regularly and why should aggression factor have any direct relation to how a flop comes?

@LTT77

You did not understand what I wrote. The button and small blind did not win or lose the hand by playing better or worse. They had the best hand or worst hand at SHOWDOWN. For players who do not know what showdown means you can read the rules of the game. http://poker.about.com/od/poker101/ht/holdem101.htm
