Re: The great "Poker is rigged debate" - Collected threads edition

Here's an interesting analysis I just got back. This is showing all preflop all-ins for 102 million hands. People have asked for this type of study many times in this thread. This is a rough cut, but it clearly shows that preflop all-ins come out just the way they should in the long run.

Number of hands parsed: 102,661,557

Preflop Equity %.....#All-ins...#Wins...%
0 - 10......................... 625 51 8%
10 - 20...................6368 1266 20%
20 - 30.................. 4835 1231 25%
30 - 40.................. 4333 1528 35%
40 - 50.................. 7020 3210 46%
50 - 60.................. 7098 3849 54%
60 - 70.................. 4333 2805 65%
70 - 80.................. 4835 3604 75%
80 - 90.................. 6368 5102 80%
90 - 100................... 625 574 92%

Notice all but the end ranges are in the middle of their range. To see why those are not in the middle, all we have to do is look at what matchups occur in those ranges.

Pair vs. same high card (dominated) is always pretty close to 92/8. That's why the 0-10% range wins 8% and the 90-100% range wins 92%. There aren't any other matchup types in that range.

Now look at the 10-20% range and the 70-80% ranges. Pair vs. pair matchups are always between 82/18 and 80/20 And pair vs. lower suited connector is always around 77/23. What else can happen in this range? Not much, so that puts us at around the 80% mark and 20% mark.

So this chart shows that of 102 million preflop all-ins on several major poker sites, they came out just where they would be expected to come out. No sign of rigging here.

Note a typo in my post, the numbers are for 102 million hands, showing all the preflop all-ins. Not 102 million all-ins.

When you have lost all your money as a result of the sites being rigged, will you stop playing and entertaining us with your nonsense?

Or will you load up some more money and give us a running, paranoid, commentary as you lose that?

I already suggested he make a thread like dangeraw's - basically "Busto or Robusto."

I definitely want to offer a blog spot to Sooper on my soon-be-launched (or RE-launched, more accurately stated) Shill Site. I think his antics would draw traffic.

What do you say, buddy?

So the point is very simple- if you can't handle the swings- get a bigger roll or move down or stop playing.
reconsruction of argument:
1. I think full tilt poker is rigged
2. To illustrate that this is likely, I will draw on an analagous situation.
3. There might be other intelligent life in the universe.
therefore: Full tilt poker is likely rigged

Erm, that isn't what he's saying.

Even us 'shills' do not say that on line poker is not rigged.

We merely say that we have no evidence for it being rigged. (And spend considerable amounts of time trying to convince idiots that the fact they lose a few hands in a row does not mean the deal is rigged. )

It is possible that it is rigged just as it's possible that there are human type lifeforms elsewhere in the universe.

But the hands in that analyzis u made is selected from variuos poker rooms, and when you are checking equity preflop of variuos players its completelly normal that it will give you correct odds, becouse if one loses another has to win (I hope you understand what i mean).

You should think a little before writing.

We compared the preflop equity at various ranges, to the actual all-in win rates. They matched. If the favorite won less than the expectation, they would not match. If the underdog won more than the expectation, they would not match. Your point that if one loses another has to win is true, and it means if you increase the win rate of the underdog, you alse decrease the win rate of the favorite, and so now you have two brackets in the study that should show skew. None do. The favorite always wins at expectation over time, and the underdog always loses at expectation over time. The brackets are paired, with the 20% equity being on the other side of hands with the 80% equity. Look at the matching hand numbers on the bracket pairs.

Number of hands parsed: 102661557
Total all-in situations: 400804 (Once per 256.14 hands).

Preflop Equity %.....#All-ins...#Wins...%
0 - 10.....................13675 1026 8%
10 - 20................124839 25435 20%
20 - 30................. 72605 21361 29%
30 - 40................. 77187 28437 37%
40 - 50................111568 51068 46%
50 - 60............... 113428 61430 54%
60 - 70................. 77187 48750 63%
70 - 80................. 72605 51244 71%
80 - 90................ 124839 99404 80%
90 - 100................ 13675 12649 92%

IndianaV8 actually made a joke when he got these results for me, that since it is more than one site mixed, they could be colluding with each other to cancel out each other's riggedness, and make the totals come out right. So I guess you're on to something dog.

Re: The great "Poker is rigged debate" - Collected threads edition

You are right proably, anyway. I had an upswing not long time ago. And actually, i figured out that only limits i cant beat are the lowest stakes, and super turbo tournaments. I have played over 500 sngs in past 10 days in 5$ limit (it is not high, but definetly different playing style than 1$) And i played them with 25% ROI. I was also playing 7$ super turbos, i played around 30 tournaments, and finished them with -50% ROI. I Finally got my decent MTT wining putting me in overall positive ROI and overall $ winings. I had enough br to play 10$ sngs, i played around 50 (-10% ROI) But i am possitive that i can beat them in the long run. Anyway, it was fun to discuss with you guys, and as i always said i never thought that OP was rigged. I just dont have enough proves that it is not.

I am glad that you bothered your selfs in such researches, and i am kind of proud that next person that presents it self here will get real proof, and will have to stfu.
