Not one of those 'rigged' threads
My question is how do you spot a rigged site?
Now, I disagree that any of the major sites are rigged. I just have this site Pokerihuone in mind. Its not so much that it is rigged, but more that it is spiked. Obviously, I don't play much on the site since I find that the action is just crazy.
Well, today I went to the site since two finns finished in the top 3 of the malaysian F1 grandprix and they had a 1k freeroll. First hand I quadrupled with jacks beating ace rag and kings. Then I had queens against a flopped set.
A few minutes later I had three sets and two full houses and got to almost 6000 chips before the hand where I raised and pushed with kings and I get a call from AQ, 77 and some other hand. Well obviously the ace fell on the river so my stack is around 800. A few hands later I push with A 8 and get called with 77, well I flop a 8, but the villain gets the runner runner for straight.
All I could do after that was to laugh my ass off. And this isn't the first time that this has happened to me.
Now before you say that I am just saying online poker is rigged, listen to me. This has happened to me constantly on this site playing freerolls
, cash game or tournies. Once I switched away from this site the amount of bad beats have decreased a lot.
I don't know but the amounts just seem crazy for having played 30 mins:
Full house, 1x from set 1x from all-in
Runner runner straight 1x
