I dont think you need to worry about the way the cards are dealt.More so the house you are playing for.Ive heard some sites having "BOTS", posing as real people but playing for the house and making the house money.I wouldnt doubt it for a second.It would be so easy for sites to do such things.They really dont care if you lose all your money, they are there to MAKE money!
Sometimes the truth hurts.Have a good day
That's an interesting theory and I've wondered about it in the past myself. Actually though, I don't think they need to do that to make money, do they? I do think the randomizer some poker sites
use are legit but not realistic, poor hands seem to get rewarded way too often, instead of punished like they should, shame on them. However, that said, once you've realized that the site has a randomizer that rewards poor hands yet you continue to play there anyway, and continue to get beat by crappy starting hands, I'd have to say "shame on you". There was one thing said in an earlier thread that struck me as a good explanation, and may explain why some sites seem to have less of these bad beats than others. If you are playing at tables where the players are a little better than the on-line norm, and they call when they're supposed to call, and fold when they're supposed to fold, etc, than you would expect to see alot fewer flops than if you were at a table of Tards. Following that logic, by virute of seeing more flops, it is possible that you'd also see more weak hands win. They are statistically doomed for failure, but in the hand that knocks you out of the MTT, they are saying to themselves "I put in my thumb, and pulled out a plum, what a good boy am I"!! I think the best advice I can offer is to play to avoid going all in during the 1st half of the MTT unless you have the nutz or have the other guys chips covered. I have found as you get closer to the money, the players that are remaining play a much better game of Holdem, and usually do what they are supposed to.
