POKER STARS IS BS

Poker Stars is so rigged for the newbie players
calling all in with BS hands and hitting every hand

I just played 8 games in a row with a -22% roi newbie and went in
with the best hand all 8 games and he sucked out

Before you rig tards start on 2 + 2 I honestly want to know
how much $$$$ you get from Poker Stars and Full Tilt to advertise
on your site.

If you guys are on the take I fully expect you to delete my
post - post haste as you were...

Oh, I have played over 5000 games in the last 3 years
so NO I am not new

Christ the sites are so set up to make all the rake it is not funny..

Anyone else with me here....

Another Rigtard

Yay(!)

Unless you can bring the evidence* to back up what you are claiming, may i suggest you spam 'Stars Facebook page with the rest of the rigtards?


*Acceptable evidence would be over 1M hands, showing a significant variance from equity. Saying "I just played 8 games in a row with a -22% roi newbie and went in with the best hand all 8 games and he sucked out" is not evidence, it could quite easily be variance.

Dude, it actually gets worse.

I heard a story about a dude who won 20 sngs in a row, 20 sngs!

He then proceeded to run bad for 2 days, 2 ****ing days!!

That combined with this thread is the only proof I need that poker is rigged.

I hate you pokerstars!!!!!!!!1

Re: POKER STARS IS BS

8 games.... thats it. Let me give you some constructive advice. Live or Online beats are beats play enough hands and you will get sucked out on in amazing fashion. That goes double if you are a good player and the villain/s is crappy.

Its a "bad beat" because you are in with the best of it. Continue to get it in "good" and the results will eventually reflect that.

No, because this idea is illogical. If sites were rigged against players then how could these players ever move up, play higher stakes, and generate more rake for the poker room? At some point the player would get fed up and quit poker or leave the site.

So no, this arguement makes zero sense.

Re: POKER STARS IS BS

As much as it SEEMS to be rigged sometimes, and I know it DOES seem that way sometimes, I highly doubt that it is. There have been numerous discussions on 2+2 about this over time. U can prob find them in search.

Have u played much live? That is where I started to see alot of the same unreal bad beats as u see online, and I started to realize that it is prob not rigged. Quads over quads, runner runner beats etc.

It wud seem to make them more money over time if they threw the laggtards "bones" once in a while to keep them playing. But it does not make it true.

My devil's advocate response:

I guess there is a possibility that they cud have some sort of variant factor in their software that once a certain "bad" player starts to lose too much to his own bad play, they cud start to throw cards his way. And since it is an unregulated industry there really isn't much to keep them from doing this, and finding ways to keep the lagtards playing. And it does make sense from a business standpoint to not want all the fish to quit.

It does raise suspicion tho, when the absolute worst player in a sng is just dominating every hand and wins the game tho. Tho this is rare, but does happen. I call that "pay off the donk day" when I see it.

Like I said there is reason to be suspicious sometimes, but it's not likely, and if u really believe that, then stop playing.

But again, it's most likely not the case. Esp w/ only 8 suckouts. That happens alot.

Just keep getting it in w/ the best f it, and maybe try to play a little more of a "lower variance style" of play and see what happens. Just because ur fav to win w/ ur Q-Q vs AK, or better yet ur AA vs. 66, does not make it a lock by any stretch.

It's prob just poker. It is partly gambling. Even if ur a 99% to win on the flop or turn, 1% of the time that hand loses. It's just hard to believe that 1% fell on us. But it does.

Re: POKER STARS IS BS

From a different angle - another devil's advocate...
If I ever (in my dreams!) reach the point where I was playing nosebleeds I would never play against a member of Team Full Tilt on FTP. It does not sit right with me to put big $ at stake playing against someone when the software you are playing them on was written by software developers they paid for. That would be no different to a pro football team being allowed to choose the referee for a big game from their own coaching staff. Yes the ref might be fair, but you will always have a lingering doubt.
