Hello,

Everyone at Cards Chat in the past few weeks I have been taking alot of bad beats by very weird call downs. So weird that only someone who knows exactly what you have in your hand would call you down with. 2 nights ago my worse fear was 100% correct and I will never put another dime on a poker website. I was playing is a 50 1.00 sitngo and a guy went into the hand with a q 10 os against my A 7 suited. I bet my hand 3xx normal raise and he called quickly like he had bullets. The flop came A 4 8 rainbow leaving me in great shape since I put him on somethink like jq or kq or at best JJ. I lead out 5 xx bb he calls quickly again. At this point Im thinking he hit a small set or had bullets all along. I check now after a long pause and he pushes in 5 bucks more. I think then muck my cards figuring he atleast had 2 pair. He then tells me after I muck that I would of mucked my a 7 suited also in that situation then laughs about it. Needless to say I reported him though it didnt matter in my book anymore. It just proves to me that online poker is total BS after all this time of playing and playing well making money online. I have always been a winning player online and trust me this isnt another bad beat sore loser speach. This is me saying the hell with putting my money up for grabs when some computer geek at home either hacked into my ip address to see my cards , created some crazy software or whatever. This is enough for me to call it quits with online gaming. They obviousely dont have there sh-- together enough and I question there random shuffles also as I have been getting back to back same identical suited hands left in right this week. Its all a damn shame because I love online poker and I understand its a game of odds. Well the odds are no longer in my favor as I see it unless I play live. Sorry to discourage everyone as I like everyone here you guys are all great. Play or dont play as maybe you wont run into some cheater like I did just know it is for real and remember that everytime you have a big chunk of change up for grabs in a ring or sit n go game. Take care everyone... Unlucky79

Probably just a good guess. Yesterday I had :kc4: :ks4: raised 6xBB ($180), 1 player called. Flop :7d4: :10s4: :4h4: . Feeling like it was harmless, I pushed ($1446). Villan says, "I can beat your kings". My mouth dropped and I figured he had AA and was doing something fishy maybe... he calls and shows :9s4: :4c4:. Turns out he was a lucky on the guess since his 4's obviously didn't beat kings. (turn :10h4:, river :kh4: - took his $$)

I do this a lot in live games, only usually it's like the situation in the previous post, where the opponent has yet to make a decision. I'd say something like "your 7 kicker isn't good here". I only do that though if I know the person and I can use it to first of all confuse them and second of all get some kind of a read on their reaction. The other day that happened and someone folded, flipping over the cards and asked how I knew what cards he had.

And trust me, if people could see your hole cards (as in the Absolute scandal), first off they'd be using it in bigger games, second of all they wouldn't be telling the world in the chat box, they'd be using it to win money.

Yeah, I heard that if you can see your opponents cards, that the one dollar sit-n-gos are the place to clean up !

I have always been a winning player online and trust me this isnt another bad beat sore loser speach.

"Trust him" on that !

Ok, you're a winning player but

- You think someone calling a raise quickly preflop means they have AA.

- You then decide to put him on KQ-JQ/JJ- on the flop, with precisely zero action taking place between this and your putting him on AA as above.

- You think someone calling a flop bet in a $1 donkngo means they have a set.

- Best of all, the game seems to morph into a ring game when villain "pushes in 5 bucks more on the turn". I suppose it can be hard to get reads on players when the game is spontaneously morphing between being a donkngo and a ring game in the middle of hands, though.

Found a new home at Bodog... The hells with Pokerstars...

Since the last post I have shifted all money away from Jokerstars and actually won a good amount on bodog the other night. Won 256.00 so this makes me feel better knowing my game is still good enough to make a good profit. Now the fun part is getting my money off there I here it can be a pain for players in the USA to cash out. So after my bad beats and bad vibes I have recieved at pokerstars I have left that site for good and will only be playing at Bodog for now on. Its nice to get off to a fast start at a new sight. Definitley a confidence builder for sure Good Luck everyone and wish me luck at the Borgata 500 buy in in Atlantic City it should be a good time. Will be there playing Dec 9th me and the wifey for her B-Day...

if you seriously think this game is rigged, don't just stop playing online, stop playing altogether
