Title = "Full Tilt is Rigged"
I expected you to post a sad story about you losing every hand. lol. I think if you played all the good cards like professionals advise people to play, you would have lost the SnG.
So what you are saying is Full Tilt is rigged because you played crappy cards and beat nothing but monster cards?
I have to say this is happening all over the place once someone is hot they're hot - UNBEATABLE - for awhile then the losing starts to happen no matter what you play or how you play it you'll lose every freaken hand out there for a day or a few days.
The only reason I say this is because it happened to me every time I made a deposit.
First deposit, I played solid very solid in the first 4 days I was a master (well in my mind anyway). During these 4 days I turned $30 into $150 at $0.25/$0.50 and $0.50/$1 Limit tables. Playing good pre-flop cards was working until the fifth day came. I lost like 85% of the hands I thought were played solid, just like how I always played. I lost until I was broke.
Second deposit different site. $24 within three days I was up to $85 again solid play. 4th day came, still the same solid play and I lost it all.
Last deposit was $20 within the first ten days I was up to $105 with the solid play. 11th day came and I lost, lost, lost, and lost down to $50 and I'm thinking of cashing out, I think there is a pattern with my play and I can't break it.
I think I will play more when I'am finished reading "Small Stakes Hold'em" by Ed Miller. I have to get this book in my head to the point where I know it like the back of my hand. I started reading it after my second deposit right up to the part where it explains the pre-flop hand selection and used it on my last deposit and noticed a big difference.
The point I want to get accross is that I think poker sites
make you feel good for the first few days after you make your 1st deposit. They do this by letting you know your strategy can work and by doing this you get addicted. After all, time will tell if you have a good strategy or not.
Plus, some days you always fold the nuts, and some days you never fold the nuts. For instance, you will fold 23o and after the river you have the nuts like an 5 high straight with no possible flush and the next hand you play AA and get beat with 56o. As for the other days the AA will always win and the 23o always lose.
Sorry for the long post but this is my brain after seeing your post Rob.
