I had the chance to talk to Pro poker players and the majority of them told me “The most important thing in poker is not the cards, it’s what you do with them!” Is it true with time I understand

online poker is legit, though I stick to reputable sites like pokerstars, 888Poker and so on. Luck is plays a big role in poker, which can cause variance in poker winnings.

In recent years, online gaming sites have exploded on the web, particularly in sports betting, turf and poker. There are more and more players and some are willing to go to great lengths to win, or even try to make a living on the internet thanks to Poker in particular.

The online poker market is growing and represents several million winnings each month for companies but also players. Large sums pass between players' bank accounts and those of online gaming sites. This lucrative aspect has the gift of being of great interest to computer hackers.

Hackers, targeting players, poker companies and more generally online gaming, most often want your wallet and their techniques to achieve their end are multiple. For online Poker players, for example, there are many offers, emails and advertisements claiming to offer a tool allowing you to reveal your neighbor's game or to rig the game in order to have the best cards.


Of course, these cheat suggestions are ineffective and this desire to cheat can turn against you. We'll see why.

The number of visitors to poker sites is increasing. We decided to look into the issue in order to highlight some tips for playing online peacefully, through a more secure environment and greater attention to your activity on the internet in order to avoid The traps.

Concerning the security of online gaming practices, a security breach can come from two sides:

The host/developer of the online gaming website in question
The customer (the player) through his application or his behavior when using the online game

It's very normal, online poker has a big volume of hands, weird things happens more often.

online poker is safe, always has been, what happens is that we always justify when we lose a hand that we have won such as AA and KK and more, but it's part of the game, sometimes there are days when things do not go well and we must accept it.

But like everyone else, it also crossed my mind to be suspicious of online poker.
Over time I chose to trust for 2 reasons.
1) It would be illogical for them to control poker to make you lose, because this would be illegal and it's a business with a lot of money to get into legal trouble for a single player.
2) improving the way I play
, although there are still hands where I have this feeling, they drop by a large percentage

Any evidence it's not fair?

Biggest opponent is own level of skills. Not necessarily circumstances.

Yes I do. On the big name sites at least. Pokerstars, partypoker GG. 100% trust them. The thing you have to take into consideration compared to live games is how many more hands are being player per hour. So the probability of certain hands hitting is going to be higher because there are more hands being played. It seems sometimes that it’s impossible and has to be a fix but every hand has a probability that it will hit - even a 2% probability is a probability. You are playing so many more hands that you’re going to see bad beats more often, if you looked at the same amount of hands live you’d probably get the same results.

You also have to realise that people might play looser behind a screen than live and a lot of the buy ins are a lot lower than live games so people might not be as invested and play loser.
The big names make so much that any hint of this kind of thing would ruin them - and what would making you lose and some other guy in the same game get them? Why bother if you lose someone else wins so it doesn’t profit them? So yeah I trust them.

Everyone understands the rules and systems of online casinos but continues to play, so why worry about trust?

This ^ is a great answer! I hope others will take the time to read it.

One thing I'd like to add to where you've written "People might play looser behind a screen" <<< Yes this! They can be anonymous! They can sit there by the computer, laughing their a55 off when they call your 4BET with 62o and then crai with a gutshot. Oops! You called!, lol... but now they hit it... Weeeeeeeeeee!!! I suspect a lot of this... especially during Friday evening play.

Hmm... interesting. I've never seen a single email, offer, or advertising claiming this. I guess it depends on what you type into your browser while surfing the web.

I'd add that any player who would believe such poppycock about a tool with the ability you've described, would need to be a complete rookie to online poker. I know these people are out there... I can tell when they sit at my table(s). (they're even worse than me!). There's lots of them here on CC.

gl (I mean 'good skill') on the tables!

how can you believe what neither the player nor the dealer sees
Those days when I lose, I don't believe, but if I win, I say believe

I always trusted online poker because it's a legitimate platform and doesn't make any impression on the game, it's always correct, so it gives us players peace of mind

I see absolutely no rational reason for big online poker rooms to put themselves at risk, by trying to scam people by rigging the outcome of the game, when they already make tons of money just running their platform.

Simple and plain I believe it’s rigged. The amount of time 4 suit cards come out to make a flush. Or improbable turn and River cards to win. Or hands that should have been folded pre flop win. I believe it’s designed to take your money. But I bet the more you pay you win.

Let's say I don't trust online poker! What other options are there? We don't have live poker in our city.

I agree people rarely play 23 off from first position all in on the first hand live because they’d have to look everyone in the face when someone calls them. As I said the micro stakes make a difference too, the fact people could be playing 6 + tables at once and their aim is to double up asap and then concentrate on those games they they do that in.

As for the trust people also have to bear in mind where the sites get their money from. The Rake. They don’t make any more or less whether they tilt the odds or not. They still make the rake. Unless you feel the person who’s winning with shit is actually the casino, and in that case I would keep an eye on that player and see how many times that player ACTUALLY gets anywhere near the final table playing the way they are. You’ll more likely find if they continue playing crazy their luck will run out within the next 10 hands and out they go….. so once again I ask, how has that benefited the casino? The rake hasn’t changed…. It’s more likely if you feel cheated that you won’t play; and that is a loss to them; they don’t need to cheat they make millions as it is!

How is that making them money though? Unless you think the player you play against is a bot from the casino? Do you realise how much faster hands are played online than in real life? The company earns off the rake not off you losing to some other guy. And I guarantee that crazy guy isn’t winning overall. But the amount of hands being played is important, yeah combinations come up what seems more often but it’s because there are a LOT more hands being played - if you checked the amount of hands against the same amount in live play I bet you will have pretty similar results

I know what that feeling is, but I believe that card choices are random, and these situations can happen, especially when you play a lot of hands. To tell the truth, it would be weird if that didn't happen.
