By the way I've just finished 230ish out of 5000 or so in the daily $5.50 20k guaranteed so your advice is paying off!! I also lost a big hand short stacked with pp10 when I called an AI he showed 3-k0 and hit his king on the river then got it back a bit and went out with ppkk to an A2o he hit...that's poker but I do wonder about the dealing off online cards I mean it's not a random shuffle is it?
Nice result (large field that tourney... 5,000 players).
As far as the shuffle being random online, I'm not sure about the technicalities of it but do know on Fulltilt it's actually a 'constant shuffle' (cards are in constant shuffle.... so if you saw a flop where your pkt. 66 'would've hit'... it likely 'woudn't have hit' because the cards are in constant shuffle). I'm not sure how the RNG's work on the sites but I've heard the way it's set up it's more random than live (if such a thing is possible??). You can probably find a thread that goes into the technical details of how rng's work (I pretty much know next to nothing on that stuff which is probably pretty apparent, lol).
GL in the next one!!!
