Practice on PokerStars Play Money & My Rants (Fixed-Limit)
I just want to know what you guys think about using PokerStars
Play Money to better your Poker skills for the Live Casino? I live in the US and can't play online and I don't want to play online. Cashing out his a B*tch. In my opinion, a lot of players on PokerStars Play Money play a lot stronger than players at the Casino.
I know some people say online Poker is rigged and for a while I believed that. After I played Live at the Casino I realized that those suck out happens everywhere. For example, I have AQ offsuit and a guy sucked out with A4 offsuit on a JA824 Board. If it was me when I first started and this happened online I would have gotten real pissed and bang my desk or something saying that online Poker is rigged. But now I know it's just the variance of the game. This was at the $30/$60 table. Even in higher limits there are donkeys swimming around, but I love and need them. If everyone play tight like me how can I make a profit.
Just a few hours ago I saw a lady suckout on 2 guys that flopped the nut straight on the Flop with J7 suited by hitting a Flush on the River to win the largest pot I've seen in a while. I think every round except for Pre-Flop was capped. One of the guy deserve what was coming to him because he played 78 offsuit on the Button. The other was in the BB with 78 offsuit (I felt sorry for him because he probably would have folded 78 offsuit to a raise or if he wasn't the BB).
I apologize for the rant, but I just have to get it off my chest. I have read post after post of players complaining that online Poker is rigged and I've made I own post every time I get a bad beat (I understand how foolish I was). I just want to tell myself that "Now I know better". There will always be donkey who play A7 suited hoping to get the "Nut Flush" which only happens 1 out of every 16 times. I know because I out kicked many of them when an Ace hit the Board.
