I know for a fact that Uno is rigged. I see patterns and it always seems like the fish have a Wild Card and a Reverse right when they need them.

So you play Omaha where the beats are worse and more frequent by the very nature of the game?

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

100 000 hands in 2005 and 100 000 hands in 2009......yep the games in 2005 was not random, 2009 they have a correct working RNG .

Simple stop poker if you dont win, and dont expect that winning players tell you poker is rigged. Also rigged poker is beatable, and there is no reason to scare away the fish.

Poker will die out early enough...EU plan to legalize poker, but they want ban any commercials..also play money..like they do it for smoking. Smoking still exist but will poker exist long without commercials ?

No surprise you ignored my last post, but I'll try again. Two questions.

What word in the English language is "****en"?

And if you're Canadian, why do you insist on playing at a site that you are convinced is rigged and another that we know has ripped people off, when you have so many better choices?

It's because he's an idiot.

Surely other people must have noticed this by now?

Well, I think that's a first.

Someone who, even if they may not be making 100% logical deductions on the basis of a very small sample size, at least has the intelligence to stop playing on a site he believes may be rigged.

For that alone, you, sir, are a gem.

If everyone showed the same common sense you have shown (even if your probability maths leaves something to be desired), this thread would be massively shorter.

All the sites are bull**** in one way or another.

KK < JQ
AA < KK
AK < 95o with an ace on the flop shove, turn 5, river 9

These are back to back to back to back

Yeah that's "random" After the 95 hand which I knew was going to come, how the **** can you take online poker seriously.

I know the few of you that defend it, pretty much have to, for your own reasons.

EDIT :

88 < 44

So another improbable "run" of being 80%+ ahead yet losing ALL of them in a row. If only the lottery was this easy.

ugh this is so gay I just called a shove with 52 and dude had 55 and of course I hit a magical straight.

Why does internet poker hate me so much?

I've just started playing online again after a month. But during that month I still played home games & casino games.

Now playing online again, I didnt get as many bad beats in a month of playing live as I do in a 4 hour session online.

I run so bad online its ridiculous. I never thought much of it before but after not playing online for a while & coming back there has to be something going to get all these **** beats.

Re: Why does internet poker hate me so much?

It comes down to this...

You see wayyyy more hands online vs. live in the same period of time. Therefore, the bad beats will inevitably be more frequent.

Re: Why does internet poker hate me so much?

funny but true story (well not funny)....i went pro live for a month and suffered the most ridiculous beats live consecutively four times....literally....back to back to back to back.....i'm talking about four straight runner runners on me....so the funny thing is I went live pro because I started to feel like online was "rigged" to induce action even though this IS my profession...anywho I quickly returned after this day in REAL LIFE and haven't believed that online was/is rigged ever again...

He has done 100 posts like that about beats from the $1 and/or play money sit and gos he plays. He does not engage in conversation, he just uses this thread and forum for his whining. He does not even have simple poker tracker.

I ignored him as you suggested (thanks for that , I am a newbie message board guy in that regard), but what eventually makes a poster ban worthy for this type of whiny spamming? He will never stop clogging this thread with that stuff until that happens, and why would he? If it is not something that can be banned then say that outright and maybe then others will follow his lead and the thread will become a long list of routine bad beat tales and save all of us a lot of time

I thought that's what it already was, with some Ice Cream Sammiches and Dinosaurs thrown in to annoy the Rigtards. Was I wrong?

Only in that you forgot to mention the Lizard people.

Not sure. This is the huge rigged thread so if people want to post fun ideas about ways it is rigged that is great. Some are fun to read, some are dull.

That guy's spamming has nothing to actually do with it being rigged, if he says that then it is just an add-on for his need to whine. Kind of like how bots spam post "I like your post - for great prices on viagara go to..."

If someone did similar posts about his bad luck in his daily life (I tripped on a stick etc), how many times would be needed before it was banned for being unrelated to the topic? That guy's posts are the equivalent - a personal blog that is one dimensional and boring and really has nothing to do with the topic/argument.

I realize the whole thread is kind of a joke with paranoid riggedologists on one side and people using crazy stuff like math, logic, common sense and databases on the other side and that creates some fun tension. As innately silly as that is , this guy manages to not even participate in it in a way that adds even entertainment value.

He probably is the guy that kept doing this on the Canadian forums posting bad beats over and over in the $1 tournaments in the main forum (again he avoided the Bad Beat one where he can whine all he likes) until he was banned for spamming.

I am just curious if his personal blog bad beat whining is permitted in this forum and thread - if so just say it outright so others can follow. Whatever the mods decide is fine, let's see a decision made on this type of posting

serious suggestion, as I'm obviously a shill, and my opinion would be biased...

Report his posts as "off-topic" and/or start a thread in ATF. I think I was hired to by the Lizard People to keep an eye on Rigtards and Scammers. I kind of doubt the real bosses even look at this thread ever since they got me.
