Did you lose to the same person?

Basically I am wondering if you think it is rigged for certain players or just rigged against you? If you think it is rigged against you, why do you think you are that important to the room to rig it against you?

Also, since you generally seem to lose, should it not be rigged for you? Is it because you are on to them that they chose not to do this?

Am I part of it all by asking these questions? Basically, I am trying to figure out ways of adding new offshoots to your rigged beliefs. I just drank some coffee if that matters.

Thanks.

Spoiler:
So what is everybody trying to say? That online poker is simply "rigged" to generate the most gross profit day by day, by increasing action hands to simulate a "real situation.?" Juicing the cash games so that every 5 hands there's a monster vs monster, increasing revenue and profits by atleast 40-50 percent? But It's a "game" Just like a game played on playsation or xbox, to a certain degree. So momentum, streaks, bad luck...ect, implemented in sports video games to simulate "action situations." Lot of quotes here...
Or
- are you guys saying that it's rigged to take your money in the most malicious of ways? The game is generated and operated to let you win x amount of euro's.(dollars)
and in a systematic and undetectable way, they make sure you lose it all. Rig every deal to sucker you in? All human players are followed around by Reps. and they can hit buttons to change the flop turn or river to take your money?
Or
- Do some people not know how to fold A A or K K ect. in certain and obvious situations. Overplaying hands, going on tilt and losing your entire bank roll on bad judgement and mistakes at the tables? Then deciding to make an account on 2+2, and let the public "know" how you "know" online poker is rigged on bad beats alone?
-Perhaps certain sitauations that would upset us the most happen at "vital" times for us: busting on the bubble; a 2nd place finish instead of first b/c of a bad beat; Getting outplay at the final table(if you made the final table in a MTT, good chance those 9 are pretty good players.)
These are not my statements, nearly asking from what we've gathered from all the rigged posts. Maybe we can find some closure.....

LOL. Rigged or certain situations and for poor players in particular. So rigged against winning players like me who get it in with the best and lose every time with the best hand as shown in my previous post.

Quote:

Because i am more likely to win due to the fact that I generally get my stack in with the best of it.

Lol I have a 16% ROI in tournaments. So generally I WIN.

I'll go with "Yes" since you don't seem to have much understanding of probability. ie; if something is 40% or 30%, guess what? That means it happens 40% or 30% of the time. And yes, sometimes even a fair coin comes up Heads 8 or 9 times in a row.

Poker Beats, Brags, and Variance

Although playing when you think it's rigged is def way more ******ed than thinking it's rigged.

Very convenient that a rigged belief is based on selected hands in hindsight. Would you think a site is not rigged if the best hand when it got it in won every single time?

How exactly do the sites magically define poor players?

Do you win most of the time when you get your stack in ahead? Would a site be not rigged if you won every single time?

This is ignoring issues like pot odds where it may be correct for players who are behind to get it in.

And I bet the people who make bad plays have bad ROIs. You realize this kind of proves that it is not rigged, rather those players are just bad.

Ever consider that is exactly what I want you to believe?


Summary of your beliefs

Winning players win, losing players lose, when a losing player playing badly gets lucky and beats a winning player in a few hands, it proves the site is rigged.

No. Not in small samples. 30% means over the long run. Do you know that you only need to flip a coin 1000 times to have a very high chance of hitting a streak of 10 heads in a row? Many players play over 1000 hands every day. 10 bad beats in a row is not an aberration, and I seriously doubt the example given was consecutive hands, making it not even noteworthy at all.

No whats surprising is the villain being rewarded for his lame flop call.
He has 3.33% of winning and 1.62% of a split. I note you left out the % on this hand.

He has no need to shove here he had like 1500 chips to my 1100 and this is realtively early in the tourney.

Actually for the 9 bad beats which were all lost its like losing 24% hands 9 times in a row which is a little over 2% chance of happening. They are not 30-40% hands being lost 9 times in a row. I see your struggling with your maths again my friend.

I play quite low limit and I play for fun although I think its rigged Im having FUN.

Thats a very one sided post my friend that distorts the actual probability of this occuring.

Also the ridiculous AA vs A4 hand is missing so its lower than 24% 9 times in a row.

LOL I dont have an absolute conclusion. I have stated throughout this thread that I could be wrong and hope that I am.

My opinion started way before these 9 hands. The 9 hands just serve as more support to my opinion.
02-03-2009 , 06:48 PM
If you think micro limits are rigged because you see all sorts of bad play that gets rewarded once in a while, might I suggest you play for an hour at the play money tables. Those must be really rigged...

Umm... the very statement you are referencing was not phrased as an oppinion but as an assertion of fact.

To change it to an oppinion you'd need to phrase it something like "And this only further makes me believe it is rigged," or "This is why I continue to think it may be rigged." See the difference? Do you need further examples of times you've asserted your belief as factual instead of oppinion?

Yeah it says Rigged. So what.

If it said 100% absolute certainty no doubt rigged I could see your point Aaron T.

Yes but this is not coin tossing. I havent lost overcards vs underpair 9 times in a row i.e coinflip. If you throw a four sided dice 1000 times its very unlikely to land on the same side 10 times in a row.

Yes they did happen in that order.

Another poster with a poor grasp of probability.

SooperFish,

It's pretty nonsensical that you're willing to write lots in posts here, but actually unwilling to do anything to verify your suspicions. This is even more absurd since you've already been given simple drafts that you can use yourself.

It seems to me that you're deliberately trolling and wasting everyone's time here.
02-03-2009 , 07:19 PM
Last night I played in my weekly league tournament (live). In 4.5 hours I was dealt about 125 hands. I had AA twice at 221:1 odds each time and I got pocket pairs at least 10 other times when I should have had only 7 total pairs all night at 17:1 odds. I estimate I saw the flop 35 times all night, and in those I flopped 2-pairs 3 times at 24:1 odds each time, or more than double the fair number. I hit a 2-outer on the turn twice, at 23:1 against me, and I probably didn't even see 23 turns all night. So that was way over normal odds. I also flopped a straight with a 2-gapper at 153:1 odds (recall that I only saw about 35 flops). So that wasn't supposed to happen either. I ran good, and I won 1st place which paid in four figures. The amazing part is that none of my opponents said anything about a rigged game. How could they not see how bad I was cheating?
