Biggest Frustration

:joyman: What do you think there is in online poker that you don't have in live poker?

Wow there are so many things that can irritate one, I guess the most frustrating for me is the continual inability to win a flip. a race or even a hand. This has been going on now for almost three months, seriously, and on all sites I play except ACR. On ACR I actually am winning regularly. On pokerstars and GG not so much, I play between 5 and 10 MTT micro entry tournaments a day and on PS have not been ITM since January...on GG not ITM since March so yes the frustration is the continuous, ongoing bad luck..even with Premium hands..hopefully the cycle will change soon:):):)

I am frustrated in online games by my failures. But what caused these failures - this is already from the topic of fantasy, for each player it is special. In general, online poker is very convenient.

When river is coming and you know that this card is bad for you.

Biggest frustration for me would be finding a game I can play at the moment. With 4+ hour late registration is nearly impossible for me to play most work days anymore.

I suppose my biggest gripe would be not being able to play at top sites like PS's, 888, Party pkr, and so on... :hmpf:

The main question in the post looks a little different from its description in the post.
But to answer the question, my frustration in online poker happens when I have too many chips and lose on a bad beat, I think it's the frustration of many jajaja
Answering the description the difference between online and live is interaction with people, cards, chips, the table, the environment in general.

what can be most disappointing is that it turns out that online poker is not really impartial, you have to trust the machine..but who drives this machine..that's the question..in a world where money is the most important thing..well let's be optimists and hope for the decency of the poker rooms. in principle, they are just intermediaries between the players .. you always want to believe in the best and in the decency of people.

Definitely the late reg and the slight seed of doubt that its truly random, when really weird hands go down. Ive long accepted the variance aspect, but when the weird things happen and smash the board, cant help but revert back the "program" is "rigged" when 39 off 4 bet jams 100bb and flops a boat.:stupid:

What bothers me the most about the online game is the players who use it all the time, every hand delaying the game...

I may be answering this for a lot of people. The crazy algorithms that blow me out of the water when I have a top 10% hand and the villain playing the Q7 offsuit wins with two pairs, Queens and sevens, for example.

Exactly my sentiments.... There are Apps where sometimes four to five times in a row where the guy who's ahead gets beat.
Or the KKs will lose to lower pairs....

Wow this is what I am frustrated with right now. I almost want to just not play online anymore.

I really think these games either are or can be manipulated. I have had so many hands that dominate (like AAA, KKK) and villan calls with those massive gapped, not suited, and nothing in their favor on the flop. Then they draw out a full house or straight. It actually feels like they can see all cards involved or they can manipulate the outcome.

I know variance has its place too, but not every game for 30 or 40 3 person sit and goes.

I have been against a particular player on Betonline that not only wins every game they are in, they draw two pair out of the turn and river every time. It is completely predictable.

At first I thought I was making my own mistakes. I now believe this player is either a bot or helped every time.

I did learn a ton about patients and being very tight. I learned to not chase anything. I became a much better player for it, but it just isn't right for this to happen with real cash.

I have to admit that I have been know to throw my phone a time or two. That was a great lesson to have learned and costs more than the loss in the game. [emoji2]

There are people who come to play a tournament speculating about the position and for a long time, it makes me very bad mood. Come on, do you enter a tournament to earn pennies or do you want to win it?

My biggest frustration is when there are many maniacs at the table, in theory I should be happy but the truth is that if it affects that they play it like bingo in all hands, that they get in each hand 3 or 4 reduces the percentage to win. The good thing is that it doesn't usually happen very often, it rarely happens but that's what frustrates me, I can't find anything else to frustrate me:jd4::jd4::jd4::jd4:

My biggest thing is watching the CEO of ACR throw money around to his minnions at the players expense. Its no secret what he does in his personal life, he just puts it out there. Thing is they kinda control the win rate for players period. RNG is real and that is not like sitting at a table and playing cards. On ACR if someone goes all in, if you call in 10 seconds you will be dealt certain cards, if you wait 20 seconds the cards will be different, that is not real cards. Wanna play real cards, go to a casino or hold your own HG. The above mentioned person is raceing it in, and throwing the money to his slot (respectfully spelled) pulls. Its no secret. CEO gone rogue period. anyway, that my issue, when you see money flying and wierd situations going on in twitch, you know you are being robbed. Imma call it now and say ACR will have a new CEO in 1 year or less.

The thing that one has in online poker that they don’t have in live play is the necessity to have a poker face and not have to worry about how you look to your opponents ( at least physical tells are irrelevant). This may lead to more outrageous bets being made online! Bigger bluffs!

The draw of cards in online poker

Good morning, what upsets me about online poker is the impression that the software sometimes favors the villains with the most chips, that doesn't happen in live poker.
I play poker, always waiting for strong hands and it's not uncommon for me to fold hands like AQ from MP1 with more than 60 blinds, in my opinion it's easier to lose a lot of chips with this hand vs sets than to win a lot of chips, the fact of waiting for hands strong and often when I play, I'm with few blinds and I often lose to villains who have a lot more chips and call with very weak hands, many people say that poker sites do not interfere with the result, but my impression is that they do. interferes and it makes me a little upset.

Party is dead, Stars is a lottery because of the player pool and 888 don’t pay out without a major hassle. They’re all shit, just pick your best poison.
