yeah ram, totally agree-.
For the record I am an ex online grinder, I actually play recreationally and, if I thought it was rigged, there was no reason for me to play. Isnt it??
The fact is, what I have state above, is true. Definitely true.
exist, a big poker room which fight everyday against cheating to preserve the game. PS is the number one in security and does its best considering every player report.
I feel safe playing on PS, as I felt safe playing on FTP at the time. I am an Italian player, a market with regulation, where everyday happen irregularity and even though PS tries its best to stop the phenomenon, it couldnt really do too much vs tons of cheating strategies used by (mother******** players). There is a scandal going on which involve some top players .it no-on e could believe was true they were cheating. We use to call it: the team of poker scandal, where players play using skype, sharing cards-
The there is the ghosting problem: ie.: selling a final table costs the 25% of the profit.
This is what's happening right now on PS.it, the major worldwide and on the IT as well, and on i-poker, on-game.
I truly believe the .com is "infested" as well as the .it. The positive thing of an open market such as PS.com, is the large field. On a larger field the odds
to make a final table are less than a smaller field (1k ppls vs 100 ppls).
Trust me, find yourself in a sandwich between two top regs (who already have edge on you), move the roi to negative.
This is the MTT only, I dont want to think the cash game ect. Then, in a MTT, a collusion has a stronger impact respect the CG. Playing 20/25x has much higher variance and so, be cheated on a FT even once per month KILL your roi.
I am really sick of it and i am not even a regular which play for a living.
The general problem is not the poker online is rigged, the issue is that where are monies, everything is rigged and there are always people trying to take dirty advantages.
