Iono, both sites have maniacs. Then again, I've only played the free rolls in MTTs. I guess it's not that nuts since in order to win, you definitely have to get lucky a number of times, so why not just keep shoving? Even if you go into the showdown with the best hand everytime, you just need to get unlucky once to have all your previous effort wasted.
I lasted 10 minutes in the latest FT MTT. Due to the Take 2 promo, I built up some points, so I entered a 50FTP tourney. Out of 600 or so entrants, the final 5 get a $26 token.
I folded every hand till I got AQ at CO. UTG pushes all in. Everyone folds around to me. Normally I do not call that. But this table has proven to be guys shoving with ANYTHING. I reraise all in to squeeze the other folks out. Sure enough, he's got 86 offsuit.
But guess who won? 66993 board.
That took me down to 360 chips and I went down the next hand shoving with KQ. Beaten by a guy with KJ.
The ppl who claim FT's software isn't messed up compared to a fairer site like Pokerstars will continue to say "variance" till the cows come home, of course. All I know is why I left FT.
If there's nothing free or cash giveaway there, I am not risking any coins there.
