re: Poker & sites is it fair play or a con
There are endless reasons for what seems to be endless bad beats, especially when playing cash games online. Bad players, good players, bots, software programs, collusion, deep pockets that could care less, home and work distractions, 100 hands per hour, etc. Stick to tourneys spike a couple of wins or final tables a year, and hope you win enough to show a profit. Cash games online just crunching numbers. I read that just 12% of players that play cash show a profit, and that list of players keep changing. If you made it to a final table in a million tourney or won one, you would be in good shape.
Poker sites not rigged and are spending millions to detect and stop cheating software players are using.
