Until synchronized breaks some MTT guys did discuss this. Jars were involved. Those were the dark times.

You seem a little harsh at times reading some of your posts but it is hard to determine someone's tone reading just straight text.

I had also started with 30$ on another site and ramped that up to just over 300$ playing the small stakes just as you are right now.

I am excited to see how you do in the next few stake levels.

~Cheers
LoL. Pathetic...See that's why I hate people like you, when you win, your a great player, when you lose it's rigged...

So on sunday, when you get stacked for 3/4's of your bankroll, what will you be posting here?

I'm pretty sure Donko quit playing online poker, just like MANY MTT sharks/pro's...

Because my real question is this - why do you keep this thread open? Do you realize that everyone posting in this thread is a 2p2 member? And by keeping this thread open, you make fun of them. There is so much wrong with 2p2, and keeping this thread open is one of the worst offenses, right up there with having a forum for Religion.

Cliff notes: by leaving this thread open you mock your own members. WP.
OMG, I've been trapped by the ever-so-tricky Bart.

You could save us all a little time in the future by just asking your question.

It's not nonsense, he's exactly right, it's a containment thread. Without it, we get endless rigged threads.

And your solution is no better IMO. I assume you haven't read much of this thread, or you'd know this. Most riggies could care less about statistics, evidence, proof, or anything of the sort. So all we're doing with your rule is stopping them from discussing the topic at all. I think allowing the riggies to have their thread at the expense of some of them being treated a little harshly is >>> not allowing them to discuss the topic at all.

Well then we are at an impasse, because I believe the opposite.

Doesn't your thread that you created, state that you just started playing online poker in Dec. of this past year? So Seriously, you've been playing online for 3 months...? GTFO.

Even better, I'm going to join a Japanese Cricket thread and tell them I'm a professional Cricket player from Mexico...

I know live and online are different games and I am the first to acknowledge that. Though I think that fact I have logged over 100k hands online does give me some indication that online poker is not rigged. I can't see the difference between the amount of action flops live and online. It's all the same as far as that area is concerned.

Question- Why do you play online for a living if you think it's rigged?

What makes you so sure that online poker is rigged?

Why do you feel the overwhelming need to try and slander online pokers reputation and integrity on this forum without providing proof?

Also why do you play it for a living if you believe it is rigged?

This is not taking the piss now. I am asking you 3 legitimite questions

Question- Why do you play online for a living if you think it's rigged?
B/C poker is my life, and I'm intuitive enough(as of 2008) to play on sites in which tables are secure and my opposition isn't that of "strangers..."

Unfortunatly I have not deposited in about 3 months, or played online in about a month. My last stand at bodog a few weeks back, but that wasn't serious "play."
Whether or not I play online again won't be answered till the end of next month.

It's hard to imagine honest, moral people in the world, but I happen to be one of them.

-Sign up, post something...scurred?

Less of an impasse as you may think. He has a nice shiny color name. Yours is mundane black like the rest of us. Only control you have is what you choose to read, so if you do not respect twoplustwo for having this thread then either

1) Don't read it

2) Don't visit twoplustwo

3) Write them an email with your opinions. Be less "tricky"

No, your correct. I'm pretty much feeling ashamed as all my peers gave **** **** for playing there, even if it was my 3rd site...But I think I made a thread or posted in a thread when I stopped playin there...bout a month ago...

Bat
Don't go there w/ PStars again...I could turn and manipulate that into a thread of it's own, yet I don't out of understanding...

Seriously, that situation almost costed me my entire trust fund...

Problems with closing this thread or any thread claiming its rigged:

1.) Riggies would take it as evidence that 2p2 was suppressing 'proof' that its rigged.

2.) If someone actually did come up with real proof, it might be lost in the shuffle which would be a travesty.
