I always lose to the same people I can always have the best hand but I always lose or the person makes a set on the river or the sequence then they say that bad run but always against these people

Where do you play? I think any of the large sites are totally safe. Why would they risk their multi million dollar businesses on rigging the game? Now if you play on some of the small or unregulated sites that is a totally different story.

If you noticed this pattern, then why do you always play against the same people ???
Amazingly. You have bad results and keep doing the same thing without changing anything. If you think that this is a problem in the poker site or in your opponents at the table, then you are deeply mistaken.

Sites run algorithms, you are the one who is making the choice. Start with yourself. It don’t matter what site will deliver you the cooler, live table are no different. If you lose, you lose only because you made the mistake at the end of the day. Very simple

Goodnight!!! I'm not entirely sure they're honest or dishonest, but the feeling is that they know which cards we have.

If you're losing to the same person just try to avoid that person because he's probably 100% lucky against you and you can lose to him with any card so it's better to avoid this rarely but sometimes it happens

Been playing since just before the Moneymaker poker boom. have played mainly on UB, pokerstars, 888, Party and GG Poker. While UB had a superuser scandal it really didn't affect micro or low stake players. I mean I'm was/am just an avg micro/low stakes player...and been a winner on every site I've played including UB. UB actually probably for the short period I played there probably treated me the best for profits. So if any of the sites are cheating they're doing a very poor job of it as I'm winning player. If they're cheating and can't take my money then they really suck at cheating lol.

So yeah I don't worry about any of the bigger and regulated sites specially if you play micro stakes and up too 25nl and 50nl. I also personally never leave a lot of $$$$ on any site. No reason too really as it only takes mere seconds/mins to make a deposit so it's common sense not too in my opinion if you're micro/low stake player. They wanna take my couple hundred $$$$ feel free I'll never be back, I can afford it and I'm still well ahead so jokes on them.


Cheers!!!

Here is my experience with some these sites various people have commented on so these called large site you think are safe. They are not I have received money refunded from two big sites as they have caught online cheaters. Here is the pattern I have seen and I'm no pro but a reasonably good player and understand the math and variance and this is why I can say that at the lower stakes you will receive way more bad beats then you should expect even with the increased number of hands you will be dealt. I'm generally a 90% favorite to win but yeah you guessed it I frequently lose on the river yeah cry me a river. The opponent should have folded or it is just a bot or someone using software to help them make a decision to call or fold. At the 1/2$ blind leveI I generally chip up pretty fast and within an hour or two I double up but then of course my flopped straight is beat by a fullhouse on the river, my set is beat by a better set, my fullhouse is beat by a better fullhouse yeah whatever it's all garbage poker online at least on the top 3 big sites. The variance is even worse in tournaments where you need even a larger bankroll. I never play online anymore either it is rigged and don't tell me about the algorithms, , variance is skewed way too high the math doesn't make sense, you have to multi table to have a win rate of any kind, too many bots and donkeys. Just look at the numerous reviews from others who basically say the same thing I'm saying. I have a good win rate at live poker, maybe a break even rate at online and thats only because I had a couple deep runs in tournaments. So I would say to anyone starting out go play at a live casino if you have one close enough as you probably won't have a very good experience with online poker. If starting online have solid fundamentals, know your poker math to help you make correct decisions, have a solid TAG strategy that you can adjust in order to exploit your opponents weaknesses and leave when you are up for the day especially if you have been playing for awhile and therefore probably not as focused. Hope this helps.

It is natural for a person to attach great importance to facts that he cannot explain and explain events by the intervention of higher forces)
I think you just need to distract yourself and focus on the game, accepting any result without emotions, but as a consequence of your actions.

The popularity of online poker around the world is constantly growing, as is the number of online casinos where you can play poker. Online poker rooms do everything possible to protect not only the resources of their customers, but also personal data and other sensitive information, such as credit card numbers. In the end, it's in their best interest, because any doubts about the credibility and reliability of online games can, as in the case of a banking institution, lead to a quick collapse.

Hi:)
I think it is not impossible or strange to lose with the same person several times, this also happens in live poker, all you have to do is avoid that player as he can be in the rush game hour.

I see... Isn't that they just was very good at predicting your hands? I know that very good players are capable of telling you which cards you had, only with the feeling of table and understanding the oponent's strategy.

I don't put my hand in the fire. I've always been suspicious of online poker. The problem is proving.

No. I don’t believe online poker is safe.
For the amount of tournaments and cash games that I’ve played over many years- the results do not align with my live poker play. Not even close!! There was this one tournament I played on GG Poker where the same opponent from Europe bad beat me twice in three hands, and he had no means or grounds to be in either of those hands. How can you play those signs and less you knew what the result was going to be? Joke

I also feel like the hands and board comes different when playing online or live poker; but it is probably a systemic issue, not a cheating problem

i think comparing live poker and online is hard. I've seen a lot of live tournaments and strange things happen there too. in my opinion we not only play against other players but also against the program. online programs have to be like this, otherwise I think every big tournament would take days and that's not worth it for the operator. cards are distributed randomly but with a system :)
