Poker is surely rigged
Right here it is, i have played on all the major poker sites
, and have the same problem on all.
When i deposit i get good cards for a while and no bad beats, then suddenly get no hands at all and the worst bad beats you can imagine.
Then when i am approaching going bankrupt i get some great hands and hit on the flop and have no bad beats, then the next game lose and have to deposit again or just play no cards at all.
This happens on every room. I know nonconspiracists out there will just say i am one of the millions who cant accept losing and try to make up a reason why. But for playing for years and reading every guide or ebook out there and have every tool available, Calculatempro, Tourney indictator, even tried out poker edge, rubbish by the way, does more harm than good.
Would make me a better than average player, and i have won countless tournments, i still believe that the sites favour the underdogs. Mainly on the river, in fact if im having a bad run i get a funny nervous feeling before the river and always lose out.
It just happens way to much to be a coincidence. People will say what have the sites to gain, and why they would risk it, and that they are regulated by gaming authorites.
So it cant be rigged?
Well my theory is due to the fact vast majority of poker players are rubbish and would lose all their money to the good players, they need a bit of help to gradually lose their money over time not just straight away so they give up and dont play again. This is turn would keep the weak players playing and continually producing rake, and customers.
Why would they risk? Well my theory on this is, why are they all located on little islands not major countries, e.g. Gibraltor, others. So they are isolated from proper governments that could investigate this.
As they say they are regulated but how can any company regulate something that has billions of hands but only needs a few strategically located bad beats to make a good player lose and a bad player win.
What risk are they really running, the poker sites are mainly all on tiny islands away from the vast majority of players, even if companies do check they cant be expected to find the very small amount of created bad beats away from the natural ones, and who says they even hand over all the hand history, they regulates themselves.
The thing they have to gain is more money, they are all competing against each other and new ones are starting all the time, so more bad players continually playing equals more rake equals more money. Why wouldnt they do it. The biggest businesses in the world are always being caught out by fraud and underhand dealing why would the gaming industry be any different. As for shareholders they never see the bad beats or hand histroy and its not in their interest to find problems with their investment.
So thats why i believe it is rigged to favour poor players.
Not just that i am crazy for thinking that not everyone in the world is honest.
