Hi guys, hope all is well with everyone these days.

What is Stars like nowadays, has the site got any softer due to the RB changes or is everyone just complaining but still playing there ?

Ive not played any poker at all in months and im considering coming back but i might just play at some random site like Sky Poker or Unibet for a change.

Stars still the only viable option these days ?

Poker def not dead. I got all in 26 times in 10nl/25nl pre flop or on the flop with 70% or more equity every time except one. The single time was a flip. The flip was the only hand I won. 25 buy ins out there floating around. I only ended up down two buy ins total from non-showdown winnings.

The odds of you losing 25 out of 26 all-in hands as a 70/30 favorite are less likely than winning the Powerball lottery several times in a row, so the fact that you are only down 2 buy ins despite breaking all known math laws is impressive!!

Odds that your story is accurate is not a coin flip .

No idea. Wife just told me that someone was coming today to upgrade our connection from 100mb/s to 1gb/s. It seemed a bit superfluous but it was free. God bless Korean internet.

Well it happened. I don't care if you believe me. Back in the day I had a database of almost entirely Stars hands where I was negative with AA over a 50 hand sample of All ins pre flop. Weird **** happens. And every possible outcome will happen at some point if ran enough times. Meaning someone will at some point lose 27 in a row. Whether or not you believe them will have no effect on it's ability to occur.

I had over 80% equity in some of them by the way, because some were pairs against lower pairs pre flop. So it's even less likely than you think. Making it even less believable for you. BTW I remember your name from when I used to lurk the forum back when I was playing consistently every day like a decade ago. If you're still grinding regularly I hope you did well for yourself. There used to be a guy named thecanoe or something too.
