I have read through the algorithm that ub uses for their site and I can say that compared to some of the other online sites, it is superior. I think that some of the reasons that people complain is that they don't realize just how many hands per hour they are seeing vs. a casino. And the more hands you see, the more the odds
and percentages we like to cling to go right out the door.
Besides the fact that "thats poker for you", what fun would it be if on the flop, winning were a sure bet everytime? No one would play. I do get peeved on bad beats, but at the same time I try to learn from each one and to remember next time that they could have anything in their hand.
Unless you're holding the royal flush....you can always
Speaking of, one sng I had A7s, flop came KQ10s, obviously i bet, i had the nut flush, turn came 9s, i bet again, river came Js. With a straight flush on the board, the other player went all in. I had to call holding the As and he was quite pissed when I beat him. But with the board holding a straight flush, and I was betting heavy since the flop, I don't see why he was surprised that I had the As?! or that I beat him, the best he could have done after the river was split the pot with me.... who knows?, at least ub has a mute option.
