A few months back I started playing at 888 poker and I hardly make any sets there. It's just beyond absurdity.
Now you are probably thinking that I don't know how variance and sample size works but this is a result of 70k hands. I have waited and waited to start hitting more sets but it just won't happen. How does one make money when you don't hit your hits? Well you just don't.
Like seriously you could be that terribly unlucky for 70k hands?
I have half a million hands at bet365 and never experienced such a thing. I have also played live poker for several years and again never experienced anything like this.

Its just variance dude, the whole "rigged" debate has been beat to death, they have no reason to risk all the money they are making legitimately by cheating a handfull of people out of what amounts to peanuts to them in rake. It sucks but stick with it man I'm sure you'll hit a set someday soon

re: Poker & I cannot make sense of this variance at 888.
Agree with MrSamsa it is pure varience and I dont understand why you have a handup about counting sets? i have played poker for over 40 years and have never done that.
Just forget about sets and start counting the hands that count. Winning hands...
