  Just what is poker
Posted by jim from EDWARDSVILLE , pa on Mar 14, 2010 at 22:49pm (CDT)
To sum up, Poker is in fact about a real shuffle of a 52 card deck. I real deal based on A real shuffle. So each player recevies a card based on both. So that the flop is dealt from the top of the deck based on above. Each & every card is dealt to not favor any one player to improve his or her hand over another player. This should be the case in every hand. I CAN ASURE YOU ON STARS IT'S NOT.
LETS HOLD THE WSOP ONLINE AND SEE WHAT PLAYERS WILL SAY THEN.

  Back to post about these controled sites
Posted by jim from wilkes barre, pa on Mar 07, 2010 at 21:59pm (CST)
Hi all, I have posted here a few times regarding online poker. I wish I could place a post here that would close these sites down. I know that will not happen. But if my posting stops just one person from makeeing a deposit then the time it took to post was worth it.
I am still playing on stars and picked up a lot more info. as to how the software is in fact controling the action. THERE IS NO RANDOMNESS AT ALL. Those of you who have not made a deposit, before you do, You might take some time and view the clips on youtube. It would be in your best interest to do so.
The players who place these clips are winning players online, and yet they are doing what they do. Tell me why a winning player would do this. You would think they would be happy they are winning. But they are not. Because the software controls howmuch they win. Anyway take some time and view the clips.
I was hoping to place clips on youtube the would be more help in understanding these poker sites and how they control the play. However due to up load time I can not just yet. Just type into the youtube search bar pokerstars rigged.
I hope the day will come when a pokersite will open online and give you the player a real deal. But I think i am dearming. Maybe one day, But today is not that day. ALSO I would like to say, I too am a winning player on stars I have a current ITM stat(IN THE MONEY ) OF 29%. Yet I took the time to post here. Why would I do this. Because I know for a fact the sites are controling the play. That is how I win. But I still, Even with what I know can not beat them.
Just one more thing, if you go to youtube post a comment and help them do what they are doing.

  they are all rigged.

When will the proper American Government workers (who are paid handsomely) do there jobs and stop this illegal bs rigged poker. And when will they arrest the site pro's like Daniel and the rest of them who are paid to attract unsuspecting new players, which they do and are handsomely paid for it. The pro's all play online from their homes just like we all illegally have. The American government is as much of a joke as the rigged up poker sites. All they need to do to stop the bs and bankrupt these corrupt companies is to tell the Internet service providers to block these sites from American computers and arrest the pro's who obviously are playing, knowing it is illegal. Call and complain often to your local and federal representatives to stop this blatant theft of Americans. GAOdotGov is a place to start.

  They have to fix the game to cover the guarantees

When they guarantee $50,000 on a $3 rebuy tournament, the only way for Pokerstars to make sure they are not going to lose money on the game is to cheat. It's set up for the guy with the most amount of money to win a majority of the time. That way the loser rebuys. I'd say that happens about 90% of the time. I'd rather they lower the guarantee and give me half a chance at winning on the up and up. You can't win with skill alone. Th best player in the world if he doesn't have an in with Pokerstars, won't in a dime.As long as you know it going in, then it's your own fault for playing. I play for the entertainment. I'll never win. I know that. And neither will you.

  It's rigged

Pokerstars is rigged. I know because I know people. And those suspicious hands you guys are referring to, the horrible bad beats that completely make no sense? Well, those aren't players you're up against those are "bots" created by pokerstars software to take your money. Those bots know which cards are coming which explains some of the idiotic plays that you people see such as calling big bets with no pair or no draws when they're on the bubble and hitting miracles. That sort of thing. That is a classic bot move. My advice don't play on pokerstars. Too many bots too much rigging, especially in the lower limit cash games 1/2 for example. You'll see usernames that pop and take your money in a completely irrational manner and then you'll never see them play again. No trace of that user left at all. If you're gonna play keep your eye out for bots.

  the real truth
Posted by jim from pokertown, pa on Nov 19, 2009 at 9:38am (CST)
Much debate has centered around the Full Tilt rigged argument, with one side claiming that poker sites are not rigging the game, while others claim constant bad beats in online poker are more than just an anomaly. The truth about the full tilt rigged debate is simply found in the software that poker sites use to execute the game.

In an attempt to curtail the problems of cheating, collusion and other subversive techniques to compromise the integrity of online poker, sites such as Pokerstars and Full Tilt have implemented subroutines and algorithms that prevent this activity. However, the very software programs they use to prevent cheating and collusion in reality has made it possible for a knowledgeable player to win more often.

Online poker sites have to abide by certain security measures to prevent cheating, especially in the recent wake of scandals that rocked several poker sites. Although no poker site wants to be brought under scrutiny for permitting cheating, the full tilt rigged debate rages on because they are using tools (in the form of algorithms and subroutines) that clearly make cheating possible.

In a sense it may sound contradictory to use programs and subroutines that clearly changes the statistics of the game, in order to prevent cheating. Yet the anti-cheating and anti-collusion algorithms intended to prevent a player from dominating a table or tournament will allow a person to win more often if the person knows those algorithms and how they work. This easily explains why people will claim full tilt rigged the game.

Skeptics will claim that online poker is fair and there is no truth to the full tilt rigged argument, yet those same skeptics are unable to explain the overwhelming evidence of constant bad beats. In addition, the fact that online poker statistics do not concur with real live play brings into question the truth about the whole full tilt rigged debate.

In a recent study conducted by an independent research partnership, it was revealed that a straight, a flush and a full house occurred more frequently (about 20% more often) than it should statistically in live play. When compared against the Monte Carlo method, and true statistics, it was shown that certain middle hands easily dominated in online poker, when they should not. The conclusion was that this is a direct result of the online poker rooms not using the true statistics in their software.

This evidence has led many to believe the full tilt rigged debate has some truth to it, and that the software used by poker sites to prevent cheating is actually allowing inferior hands and less skilled players a huge advantage. According to one source, the solution to the problem of constant bad beats is to learn what it is the software is doing and the inner mechanics of that software.

Simply put, if you understand how the full tilt rigged software works, you can easily beat the software and stop being a victim to the full tilt rigged algorithms and constant bad beats. Since the online poker rooms are not going to change their practice of the way they execute deals and outcomes of hands, it is prudent for any online poker player to learn the software and use it to win.

Paul is a professional poker player on several online poker sites and a former software engineer for a gaming company. His latest research reveals the inner workings of the online poker sites and how the software programs used on the poker sites affect the outcomes of your play.
The above is a copy and paste from a web site I found. All of the above I agree with 1000 %. In fact these sites offer is not poker, you would be better off playing the slots at a land based casino. You have better odds of winning. keep in mind slots are the worst bet in most casinos.
