Oh and this wasn't meant to be a "The site's rigged" thread. I haven't seen any chosen seats. Even with my nutty outlook on the game. Not a one.
Here's what I've seen:
One or two really good players at a given table, playing well. Some decent players(I count myself as a decent microstakes player at the lowest levels, but I know I'm not great), in the middle doing their best. And some bots, chasers, and fish at the bottom.
Problem seems to be the decent players get sucked into playing as best we can(we need to improve our trapping skills, if we have any at all). Your best decent game can't beat every "bad" player at the table. You do have to get very good. Not just decent. Very good. I'm working on that.
Oh and you might think something's weird if you get a lot of suckage higher up. I don't figure it quite that way though. See, I figure some folks are lucky enough to get no deposit bonuses, others have fought up from freerolls
, and a select 3rd group has deposited funds out of their own pockets(God bless them).
It's the depositors who have a lot of money but not a lot of experience(I feel this strongly), who would be chasing a lot at higher stakes(but it's all low stakes at UB I think the highest table is $1/2 but that's a lot more than pennies).
Anyway, I'm slightly less paranoid now and that's a good thing.
