online poker?? Id rather puke blood
I have now tried 3 online poker sites
and have made a deposit in each one.
They all have several things in common.
The 4 site I have played are poker stars
,full tilt and Ultimate Bet.
I play pretty tight and have played many hours of live poker in poker rooms in and around the Miami area. I have played basically small stakes ring games 2-4 and 75 dollar SNG. I have always played tight and have always done well. I have had the ups and downs that we all get.
Online poker is much different because all you really have to do is see the flop, cross your fingers and hope for the best. If you wait for the top hands you may be waiting a long time and when you do get good starters the flop will be on the other side of the universe but hey you do win some. Usually it's when you have the big pair thats when everyone folds to you and when you have marginal hands someone always bets a big bet just enough to make you throw away a 10 Q and the like.
I also noticed that every time I made the first deposit to any of these places I did very well and even got the balance in a couple of the accounts up, and then the cards stop coming and when they do come someone is alwyas beating you in the most incredible ways with unbelivabe odds
against them. And then the ballance goes to Zero. This has happenend at each site.
And no matter how much I try I can not find anyone to say they are ahead. Sure I play the small stakes but damn someone has to be winning.
The beats are incredible and sometimes so absolutley unbelivable that you are just left starring at the monitor.
Someone told me that I see those bad beats more because I see more hands online. So I figure if I stop now I will be better off because the more I play the worse its going to get
I am sure there are winners out there but it has not been me. I have played tonight at Fulltilt and feel that that site has the best tourny set up out of all of them but I went over 50 hands without a win tonight and only 6 top ten hands to even play. Now I know this is going to happen from time to time but what has happened this week at Full Tilt has been the worse run of cards I have ever seen and the week before that I was at UB and had the worse run of cards I have ever seen and before that I was at poker stars and ran into the same dumb luck.
If you do not get cards you can not win.
I have never had anything like this happen in a live enviroment .
I have played hold em for about 6 years and played 7 card stud for much longer. Thje 7 cards is a better game for the money management but once you get into hold em its hard not to play.
I just feel that online is a bit of a sham and you fust have to be the one in the seat that the RNG has picked to do any good .I have tried playing several different ways and all with the same results. I know I play better then what I have seen online and will do my best to discourage people from playing online.
is there online tiddly winks??
