do poker sites have their own bots?
I just wonder this, as sometimes some of the calls I get just seem amazing. I lose to three outers, two outers more than I do 12 outers?
It also seems to me, if I'm in a tournie and it is getting down to say 107 left, top 100 make money, then the game seems to screw you over just to get it down to 100 faster?
I've seen this time and time again.
I've also seen, today has been a good example, a donkey has or possibly site bot has got a big chipstack, everytime he goes up and calls and all in against a smaller stack he wins cosistently.
I found myself in some tournies today, guy raises 180 in 1st position, I think if I reraise by doubling or trebbling he will still call, so stupidly I go all in for 3000 with AQ suited, he calls with KQ os, he gets the K and wins.
Tournie, straight after that, exactly the same ppositions on the table, he raises same bet (different person) 180, I am fed up by this point from game above, I push all in 3000 with AK, he calls, KQ Q straight away.
I know that was over playing the hands, but they wont fold or stop calling, so if I think I'm ahead I might as well try and get their chips if they still call, silly me.
Next game I cool myself down guy raises, 300, I call with JJ, flpp goes J99, I check, he bets pots, I reraise all in he calls, he has 88, turn goes 8, river goes 8? Is this a joke?
I go onto a normal $22, I raise with AA, I get a caller, flop goes A22, he bets, I just call, turn card is 7, he bets, I reraise all in, he calls, he has A2, river drops 2.
I go on a tournie qualifier, i admit I am Peed Off, I see one guy just going all in every hand with Q2 os etc, so the next time he does it I call him with KJ suited to harts, he has J6 of suit, he wins! I rebuy, he's still doing same old play, he gets someone else out, comes to me and him again I have 6K chips, he goes all in for about 15 I think, I have KK, he has 9,3 flop goes 9,3 straight away, I quit.
Other games were not rebuys by the way.
It never used to be like this, there seems to be more people pushing all in with anything now than say a few years back.
I did a record, of big hands and how they held up when heads up all in, this was my statistics for all ins pre flop, about 6 months back I did this.
KK lost for me 17 times out of 20 usualy against ace rags.
AA lost for me 12 times out of 17.
QQ lost for me 26 times out of 28, usualy against ace rags or AK.
AK won for me 19 times out of 26.
Now if I'm low stacked against a big stack on party, I usually know I'm gonna get rivered to a 2 or 3 outer because it has become so frequent now. I know it's not just happening to me, but I honestly think the poker sites
have their own bots which they use to make extra monies for themselves.
My friend says why would they do that, they don't, but I think they do, why does an arcade have fruit machines, to make money, yeah someone gets a jackpot every so often.
There are so many sites that keep track of winnings and losses for players, if we have access to this then obviously so do poker sites, and they don't want the same people winning all the time otherwise the bad players will just go away eventually.
Also I have noticed when ever I have a nice wedge of dosh, and then I cash some out, all of a sudden I get robbed even worse than before, it's like a punishment for taking funds out of the kitty.
I like playing poker, am gonna miss it, but I can't stand seeing a game that is meant to have some skill, be brought down to bingo player city which is what party poker
Sorry for rant, but am sick of it, every hand two players are fighting it out and always one of them has the nuts, whether it flush, straight, FH someone always has the top hand possible.
thanks for listening, sorry again, have good xmas new year
