Just personally, my success' on Bovada have given me the satisfaction in knowing I'm not being cheated.
Anybody that thinks a site is cheating them (aside from payout issues) just needs to get better at the game imo.
As has already been stated > if there's a screename, it can be tracked & then proven (with anonymous #'s there's no hope for this).
Because you've had some success on the site, you know you're not being cheated? (maybe you've been fortunate with what tables you've been sitting at... how would you even know... or find out if you suspected? You can't!).
Your comment "anyone who thinks the site is cheating them just needs to get better at the game" is a joke.
a) you're not that good (imo)... 3bet/folding 1/2 your stack, getting near 4to1 & folding> showing AK is 'not that good' (hint > why 3bet there if you EVER have the intentions of folding? ... but then timing down 'forever'.. .folding & showing AK.. shows you didn't even have a plan (just an example of why I think > you're not that good).
Also, what? So you're assuming that if someone feels the site is 'cheating' them >> equals 'they are losing'? That's pretty naive (imo)
Once Bodog went to 'anonymous' tables I withdrew near every penny from my roll on there (which wasn't that much because I didn't play there a whole lot before... I think it was $550 from a $50 deposit). I left $12 on my account. I figured enough for 1 CC buyin (& 1 other priv. buyin another group used to have on Bodog).
I've played ~ a dozen games since, withdrew another $1,200 & have just over $100 left on there in my account (played the $100k 4x, cashed twice).
So I should play on there.. right? Nope. I hate that site. Only games I play in are the CC games & if I get lucky enough to win a ticket to the $100k, I play it too.
"IMO" it's a goofy site. It's like you're playing poker.... but there's very little 'poker' to it. How do you play 'real' poker without any metagame? Without any exploiting of other's tendancies & weaknesses? (aside from perhaps the super obvious noob/rookie failings ie. guys opening for 3-4x in LL's, players 3bet/folding when they've priced themselves, in, etc.). You can't even follow notes on other tables... nevermind 'other games'.
It's a joke & a huge fail imo.. nothing else.
