I have been playing on UB for years and people have been complaining about this forever. I can say that after playing thousands of hands on PS and FTP, that they are all the same. However - what happens is that the quality of play is SO low on UB that I see so many people chase flushes and straights without ANY ANY ANY regard to pot odds
, and thus, more people tend to catch them (thus the "damn bad beat!") when in reality it was just a bad catch.
I'm seeing this on UB especially at the 25nl tables. It's the worst poker on any site I've ever seen at the 10 or 25nl levels. Usually there are only 3 tables at any given time anyways - which is sad when you see there are 20 to 30 on PokerStars. However, I do understand why - the Bad Beat Jackpot starts with the 50nl tables so people play outside their BR and move up.
