Among your many factual errors, I wanted to correct this one since others commented on it, and since you were so emphatic about it. This has been done, more than once. The Cigital study of 100 million cash game hands showed that there is a showdown 24% of the time. I personally have the stat for several hundred million cash game NLHE hands, it was around 38% turns and 27% rivers counting all stakes together. If you like I can give you the stat for any stake level.

Kind of an amusing welcome back hand, but not sure as a rigged theory the "we make people get crushed by straight flushes on their first hand back after a long break" would make a lot of sense even to lifelong riggedologists.

Then again, there was that one theory of 100 times too many quads or something a while ago, as if that would never be noticed if it was happening.

It really is better when there's people to make fun of. I don't think ROCKNADS is going to be back any time soon

Where is R4R?? Maybe homeless playing warm soda/dumpster sandwich limits on the streets somewhere. Hopefully he'll gain web access again or his parents will pay his bills so he can come back on here to talk sht.

What the hell is interesting about that blurb, and how does that have any relationship to anything discussed in this thread?

Are you suggesting that because EGS claim to be good at SEO that Google is rigged too?

Thanks for your consideration.. I still float the forums from time-to-time. Who ever said I had no $? I just won a big mtt online.. But it does not change the fact it is rigged.

Hmm, logging into an account that has been flagged often for abusive chat. That seems like fun with no downside.

Look for that other guy who wanted to bet 25k or something for something similar. He was crushing the 1/2 cent tables when someone checked up on him. Your bet will be taken as seriously.

A) Neither of those scandals involved a rigged deck.

B) Do you trust energy companies based in the US?

wow just checking in this thread and wow

These defenders just never seem to get tired of the same pointless arguments. They have to get paid to do this. Anything else is just not human nature unless you are talking about the mentally ill. They seem like sane logical guys though, obviously getting paid to combat those who doubt the integrity of online poker.

I am a skeptic of the integrity of online poker. I started sportsbetting, being around a lot of shady people and casino personnel and I know their mentality. That is the basis of my skepticism. And with the current legal climate online poker finds itself in, you are dealing with people very willing to walk a very fine legal line to provide this service. Usually the more legally questionable the service, the more criminal the element is providing it. People like that do NOT like dealing with variance or risk, which they see as something for the punters, not them. That is the basis of my skepticism.

If I am going to check this thread every once in awhile I would be willing to step over to the other side if I could get paid for it. Can one of you guys hook me up? I will start a new account and pick up on the other side of the argument which I think I could argue better than most of the current shills. Just PM me for details. thx
