pfffft...hahahaha! good one.
but i'm going to go with the fact that even a rec player would know that the chances of getting dealt a royal flush ANYWHERE are extremely slim.
hell i've gotten a couple of Royals at FT but doesn't mean I'm trying to play any two suited Broadways in any circumstance in hopes of catching it again!
I really think there's too many players (new ones at that) for the servers/software to track exactly what to give them and what to put on the board to maximize rake.
(AND do this randomly enough to avoid suspicion)
However, I DO believe that the RNGs online are a bit skewed...not in anyone's favor, mind you, but skewed. Randomness in real-life is a little better spread out.
(But then again, some of the bad beats you see at the WSOP really feel like online bad beats, even worse)
that all being said, I still don't like the way FTP deals hands with a continuous shuffle. The method that everyone else including Stars follows with their deals is the correct way at least.
