Too many all-in pre flop players. The reason being that there are far too many bad beats, so why not go all in pre with your 7 4 off. You have better odds than the guy with pocket Aces.
I only play free rolls and use those winnings to play real money games. I won't waste my own money on a site that you can't win on.

You're clearly not a cash game player.

Hi.
Sometimes bingo players are annoying, but at the same time it's always a good opportunity to double the stack. I try to be patient and not play with junk. In the long run, this gives a good result.
Good luck.

Something i doubt that in your tracker the statistics on winnings with AA are much lower than the norm. Therefore, we must be glad that opponents are pushing with all sorts of garbage ))

I you bought in to the Venom or even just a 3,3$ MTT, you might see a slightly different style of play, than you do in the freerolls. WYPIWYG (What You Pay Is What You Get) is true in poker as anywhere else in life ;)

Obviously.

You can play cash games anywhere. I do that at my casino. When you go to AC, you go there for the tournaments with the "...huge prize pools..."(Jeff Boski, ACR pro).

7-4 cards can't have more chances preflop than two aces. I advise you to watch the online poker odds calculator and watch the video information on YouTube, there is a good channel in the card chat with the analysis of poker hands.

So when you go to the casino you are totally happy to put 200$ or more on the table, since this is the typical buyin in a 1/2 live cash game, which is often the lowest limit offered. But when you play online, you dont want to invest a dime, so you play freerolls, and if you win a few bucks in these, you play a few micro or low stakes MTTs. In which you say, you cant win, because the site is rigged to make bad hands win.

Now if you actually took online poker serious, then you would deposit 500$, which should be no problem for you at all, and then play a sample of at least 1.000 2,2-5,5$ MTTs. After that you can start to evaluate, how its going, and if its going well, then move up and play up to 11$ MTTs. But of course its easier to just give up in advance and claim the site is rigged without having any kind of actual evidence for this ;)

Yet there are many player who do win on this site. Yes there are bingo players at time and in the free rolls. What do you expect when player have no vested interest when trying to win what 2 bucks if they beat out 1000 players? Once players are putting there money in the play gets better. Hell I have seen bingo players at my local casino. Not often but if they want to try and donate chips to me why would I no try to take them.

Obviously, you are stuck with only freerolls, what are totally different compare to anything else. And you should be happy when someone do things like this on real money buyin games. Of course 1 out of 5 they are going to win.

Get a software for a while, and check the winning percentage of given hands after 500k+ hands. Even then it easily can be +/-5-10% compare to math probability. The variance is a b*tch, and it is much wilder compare how they advertise. Basically, online you deal with an algorythm...

And all the rooms - including acr - try to go to the gambling direction instead of poker, so the loosers can win more often. ie. they get rid of the 9max tourneys, how most of the rooms....

check out the insane 7max tourneys in given rooms, that's a total chaos even on mid+ limits.....

Are you complaining about there being too many bad players? I would think it would be much more profitable to play with bad players than with skilled thinking players.

Exactly and anyone can check this out for themselfes on sharkscope. But online poker is not a get rich quick scheme. You need to put in a lot of work and have a bit of talent as well. There are way to many people, who are lazy and expect immedeate results. They think, they can play some freerolls or deposit 20 dollars, and then after 6 month they have run it up to a million, because they are gods gift to poker.

But thats not, how it works. Unlike in your local casino people from all over the world can play on a site like ACR, and they can play multible tables at the same time. So even in microstakes you are going to be facing a lot of fairly competent players from countries like Russia or brasil, who are happy to earn 5$ per hour playing online, because in their country thats decent money compared to an average salary.

So if you want to have a winrate, which is higher than that, you need to make it into mid or high stakes games, and to beat those games you need to put in years of work practicing and working with solvers and other programs. You also need to be able to multitable and play at least 4-6 tables at a time.

Finally if you are used to playing cash games in your local casino, there are some large adjustments to be made, if you want to start playing MTTs. Its a completely different game, and for starters there are supposed to be far more all-in preflop spots, because stack sizes are generally shorter in tournaments except for the first few blind level.

So when OP is complaining about "bingo poker", maybe he is actually just playing with people, who know how to play tournaments. Has OP learned push-fold ranges by studying charts or working with a program like ICMizer? Does he even know, what ICM is? Most likely the answer to all of this is "no".

There is always a chance to win. Despite the game of opponents, I try to make good and thoughtful decisions. I don't like bingo, so I just try to be patient.

Here is the most annoying example from today, why people leave ACR... even have insane 1-3 out river series in other rooms - i dont get it how is it possible for weeks long in 3 different room. (Except the 'conspiracy theory' that our world is a - for us - huge prison, computer game, simulation where some can easily f*ck around however they want - or rigged, hacked by humanoids....)

and it is still micro, but i like the tourney itself, because it is a 3 bucks, usually not many bingo players, but small for low, mid regs to come down....

And not imporant it is a 5k+ regs tourney, if it is the last 2-3 tables 90+% i relegate like this in this phase, with 70-80+% chance for me, and i lose more than 50% of them if it is before the significant money... f*cking sick!!!!!!!!!!!4 - as i cant avoid go allin 1-2 times without nuts in this phase - in the last 1 and half year over 10k+ tourneys..... bloody annoying....

https://play.blackchippoker.eu/onli...e2926f273a29bbee0e8510b07ce7be4a77d16df199da9

thats why i stopped playing on it, probably i will again, how in the other rooms, too. it is f*cking nuts that the algorithm is possible to set up for given persons by purpose like this. i play daily 1-2k hands and 20-50 times lose 1-3 outs on turn or mostly on river...... sick like hell.......

There is nothing unusual about someone hitting a 2-outer on the river, and you were lucky to have AA against his JJ in the first place. So stop whining like a little baby, just because your aces got cracked. This happen to everyone at the exact same frequenzy, so its not the reason why, you are winning or losing. Tilt on the other hand is a major reason, why people are losing. So if you learn to not let a hand like this tilt you and make poor decisions in other hands, you will already have gained a significant edge on many of your opponents. Best of luck at the tables :)

Bingo players have been, are and will be. Such players are on all sites, absolutely all. However, if you are patient enough then you have an obvious advantage and this advantage can bring you money in the long run.
