Im sure you have noticed, and if you havnt go to a table and just [play a few ace rags and tell me how it turned out for you. Its very dangerous and like i said online its almost always dominated by another player. With the exception og HU play, you can play A rag a little more leanient there, but still a very trecherous hand to be playing 6 or 9 handed...
It's a treacherous hand live too. Ace-rag is a crap hand no matter where you play it, be it live or online. If anything, online play is CLOSER to the true odds due to the random card generators, which theoretically shuffle more randomly than shuffling a deck. How can you say that it's better to play them live when in actuality, you should rarely be playing them at all in EITHER situation?
I watch people play ace rag all the time, live and online (I do play poker every ONCe in a while, after all), and it's the same results both ways: Sometimes they lose, sometimes they don't. Period.
