Ok..............let's get it out in the open. Poker software is NOT random. We all know it.
It is random but is played a hell of a lot faster then live poker so you are obviously going to see more bad beats then in a live game.In a live game you may only play about 30 hands/hour but in an online game you will play about 90 hands/hour so off course your going to see more bad beats which make it seem rigged but in reality is just the odds and cards taking its course.
All the talk from poker sites about random number generators is bumpkin!!! They won't admit it......because it would seriously hurt their business. Random number shufflers are only required to perform what the software instructs.
They are not going to admit to something that is proven to be not true just because people like you can't accept that. Oh and by the way it's random number generators not shufflers and if you knew anything about the basics of poker software you would know that too regardless of how many years you claim to be a programmer.
Poker software operates as a set of instructions. Whatever is written into the software, it will perform. It does not understand randomness, because true randomness cannot be written.For example, if I was to write into the program for AA to be successful only 33% of the time, that's what it will do. If i was to write in to the program that an allin bet will win 85%, that's what it will do. It doesn't matter what cards are against it, or what position you are in pre-flop, turn or river. The only time you can be sure that there is no more software interferance is after the river card.
Yes they could write scenarios like that into the software but once again why would they do that?They don't have anything to gain but a lot to lose if they did that.If i am playing you in a game of poker the online casinos (or any casino for that matter) don't care if i win or if you win as they make their money as a percentage from each pot.If i win they make a $1 or something like that from a $100 pot however if you win the same pot they make a $1 so regardless of who wins they still make money so why on earth would it be rigged?
Poker software is a goldmine for poker sites. It is designed in a way to ensure that even the most inexperienced player can win. And that's what they want. If only good players won, then these sites would lose millions. Poor to average players would not come back. So in order to ensure a constant loyalty, the software will ensure for example, that AA is 'cracked' 77% of the time, depending on the instructions written into the software. For example, if I was the chip leader and had AA. I raise 3 times the big blind. A player with less chips, goes allin. Now you call. You find that the allin has KQ. What's the bet that KQ will beat you!
That's complete nonsense if it was designed for the most inexperienced player to win then they would be the professionals and be making a lot of money. Anyways how does the software know if you are inexperienced or not? I mean come on use your brain for once before making wild accusations.
As for your example its called GAMBLING! even though poker is predominately skill you will still occasionally lose with Aces, what do you expect to win everytime you got aces?If that was the case then there should be a new rule that Aces automatically win but that would be just stupid on the other hand i bet you don't complain when you have KQ and beat Aces oh no its not rigged then is it and you happily cash out thinking how great a player you are. I mean seriously if you go all in with Pocket Aces you don't want anyone to call?If you seriously think that then good luck to you in your poker career because you need it.
How many times do you see an allin win with the worst card possible time and time again??? That's the software for you. Cards you see played online would hardly ever be played in live games. But because players see the most incredible' suck-outs' time and time again, players are willing to take a chance, relying on their knowledge of past experiences to put their tourney on the line.
No this comes down to psychology (another important factor in poker). You always always remember the bad beats more easily then the wins which makes it seems like those cards win all the time but in reality they don't. How many times have you made a bet and someone has folded, preflop or otherwise?Chances are they were holding those bad cards that apparently "always win"
How many times do you see players call a big bet with nothing? So far behind that it is impossible to comprehend the madness. But they do, because they know that the software is very receptive to callers, allinners and players with less chips.
No that really only happens at low stakes (high stakes too but not as often) and that isn't because all people know about this "supposed software flaw" but because most people are amateurs with no understanding of strategy when it comes to poker and don't care if they lose a $1.50 or they are just plain gamblers.
There are many hands I would never play online because you hardly ever win with them. Such as A10,Q10, K10 or anything with a 10 in it( Although I have noticed that if you have A10, it usually cames out a stra8). KJ, suited A rags, and to a lesser extent, JJ, 1010. There are just so many patterns associated with software interferance. And how many times have you noticed pocket pair protection????
If you never ever play those hands then no wonder you are always losing and what the hell is pocket pair protection????? I have played on heaps of sites in the past 3 years and never came across that feature once i mean seriously what site are you playing on???
You can also see the software at work as the tourney gets nearer to the end, for instance, hands that were winning earlier, seem to lose more frequently and allinners won't win the high percentage as they used to.
No that's because by that stage the better players are winning and a lot of the amateur players, new players and just plain gamblers are generally out by that stage.
So if you play online, in the low stakes range, you are really relying on the 'triggers' within the software to be in your favour. At the high end, players are unlikely to suffer as bad because they will respect position raises and strong play.
No trust me if they think you are a fish and not a strong player they will loosen up their hand selection considerably and won't respect you or your play and will play worse hands as well because they know your going to screw up sooner or later. Anyways just because its high stakes doesn't mean they are all great players and the play is going to be any better as there are plenty of fish out there with a lot of money to throw around who are more then willing to play any way they choose gambling or otherwise. Not many people change how they play but at one stage or another they will all go up or down in stakes at least sometime in their poker playing (especially after a big win) If you think you are going to win against experienced players in the long run because they "respect position raises and strong play" then either you dont know much about poker at all really or your ego is huge.
Basically your whole argument is made up of contradictions and no hard evidence.
