Subject: I have given up on online poker
For a ton of possible reasons I can not beat online poker so I am giving
up trying.
Just a few weeks ago I had beat after beat with many of them being very
bad beats. It was so bad I really questioned if I had forgot how to play
poker. I packed a small bag called my hotel in Vegas and asked them to
have a room ready for me. I had reached the point where I had to play
live to see if I still had my game.
Had Jody take me to the airport and a few hours later I was in Vegas.
While in Vegas I played Omaha h/l of course along with many different
games amd limits even down to 1-2 no limit at Harrah's. Well after 4
days of play I had booked wins in every session I played. I also did not
see anything I would consider a very bad beat.

So looking back on my online results and history of bad beat after bad
beat along with some winning streaks I have had online that were flat out
not natural (like winning 10 hands in a row in a 5-10 limit game) I
deleted all online poker software from my computer last night.
Yes I am even giving up online play based on winning streaks that are just
way out of the norm. Playing nothing higher that 2-4 pot limit and winning
more than $2000 in a few hours is just not right.

From now on I will stick to live games face to face.
I am in no way saying the sites are rigged. What I am saying for me there
seems to be a ton of difference to playing online and playing face to
face. I still will say I think some sites are dealing juiced decks but
not really pointing it at anyone. It appears it takes a passive style of
play to beat online games and I just will not play that way. If I have
the best hand on the turn I am going to bet it not check and see what the
river brings. I just will not do that to my game.

I do want to give 1 example of bad beats that are just way beyond the norm
First jack 8 ver. Jack 6 with a flop of jack 8 2.
Jack 6 bet all in I called it came 6 6.

Well as I say online is just not for me. Even being a omaha player which
lives under the norm of getting rivered it just seems getting rivered
online is a fact of life whenever it is possible to be rivered. Also
because I do not play hands to the river in hopes of a big suckout I never
suckout big against other players.

See you at the tables face to face.
During parts of Feb I can be found at the 30-60 1/3 kill omaha h/l game at
the B in Vegas or perhaps the 75-150 game in LA.

I have had far worse beats than that in live poker with alarming
frequency.

This one time in live poker I flopped quad threes and some donkey hit
a freaking one outer to make a straight flush wheel. Unreal.

Then this other time I flopped a set of aces. Some donkey made quad
kings on the turn! Another one fucking outer! Of course I thought my
boat was good but it wasn't.

Live poker is freaking rigged.

Of course, I hit bad beat jackpots on both those hands and cleared 60
grand between them. Still...it's gotta be rigged.

I'll give you a serious, non-supertitious answer.

I've heard lots of people say that they can't beat online
games although they do well live. In most cases I believe
them, but I think that the causes are different than what
they think they are.

I believe that the texture of online games is significantly
different than in live games. People just play differently,
and that causes hand rankings to change dramatically. If
the player doesn't know how to adjust for this, he's screwed.

This is much the same phenomenon as middle- and high-stakes
limit players saying that they can't beat a California
no-foldem 3-6 game. They can't if they insist on playing
the same way as they do in a 30-60 game. Often they'll say,
"They don't respect my raises!", and that's true. It can
also be wildly profitable, but in a 3-6 game you raise for
very different reasons than you would in a 30-60 game.

If you're used to seeing 2-and 3-handed flops, and you start
seeing 6- and 7-handed ones, there will be a lot more suckouts.
It's not that the game is rigged, but rather that you're playing
a different game.

I'm just the opposite Arlo. Live is terribly boring to me. I like the
speed and the multiple tables from online. I was at a sales meeting at
the Borgota in August. I came back and told my wife I'm never playing
live again.

I have said for many years that on line is just different - not that it
is rigged - it is just different. Over the years I have seen far more
HORRIBLE beats on line than in live games. I seem to take a lot more
bad beats on line too. People say it is because you play more hands and
I just laugh. I play Omaha8 live and a little on line and I see a lot
of beats in that game so when I say HORRIBLE beats - I have an idea what
that means

I tend to stick to tournament poker online simply because it is less
likely to be affected by collusion play. Think of it why shouldn't people
with mobile phones tell their friends what had they have got?

It seems no one has told you the truth so I will. What you describe
indicates that you are a fair to slightly above average player but not
an excellent player. The truth is that online games are much tougher
than live games; especially live games in Las Vegas. The hassle of
downloads, deposits, withdrawals, and more means that the average (not
all) online player is more skillful and more aggressive than the
average Las Vegas tourist. (Las Angeles games are tougher (less
tourists) to beat than Las Vegas but still not as tough as online.)
Instead of blaming the =91dealer=92 for your losses get some good poker
books and work on your game. Once you learn to consistently win online
then go to Las Vegas and you will do very well indeed.

Anyone ever consider that the online RNG is near perfect, and
therefore makes for a different game? Live, when the dealer shuffles,
he often gets cards in pairs from the prior game. Oftentimes these
cards stay next to each other after shuffling. Or maybe they get 1 or
2 cards apart and, therefore, go to different players (i.e. you have
an Ace but so does the guy next to you).

You are an idiot. The games online are not harder to beat, neither are
the players since most REAL pro's don't play. Online poker is like a
slot machine with their robots integrated into the system to replace
the proposition players they had when they first came on. Passive play
is far better in online games, but it shouldn't be. Cash games are
where the money should be, yet under the disquise of 195,000 players
(not telling you that almost all are playing in at least two games),
you can't even get people to play you $100 or $200 stud type games
(heads-up sit & goes) on either site. Most of you play for fun or mini
stakes, unlike myself and Arlo, so how could you be a poker source who
knows what the F he's talking about?

You are so full of shit it is not funny.
For over 30 years I have been a winning player.
I dont know all the reasons I cant beat online poker but I do know a few
of them. A key one is online poker bores me to death. Another is the
lack of reads on other players and not being able to put forth an image.
I also dont go for the suckouts others do so I get bad beats but do not
give them.

As far as LA games being hard to beat get real LA games are the softest
games in the world.
Vegas is harder to beat because of the collection of good players while LA
has a ton of money moving around.

Incorrect.

Softer than Vegas, I agree, but I have personally seen about 4 places, 2
of which play for comparable or higher stakes, which play worse (Costa
Rica and Atlantic City, with Vancouver being close but mostly played for
lower stakes).

I agree with you 100%. Online poker isn't poker. Online poker is
entertainment. Just like fantasy sports and porn, it is not real.

Do you really think random number generators shuffle the same as
cards? NO! I also think online poker cheating is rampant which fucks
with variance as well. Do the math on a thousand mid-stake RNG hands
and you will see, 4:1 dogs will be even money. PokerStars or FTP just
do the math. Money goes in good 80% of the time and you still can't
beat the rake?

Entertainment. Somebody prove otherwise please.

My poker experience is closer to 25/75. Here is why online shuffle is
different, because it can be easily and consistently manipulated. Just
like slots and video poker in Vegas, only they are closely regulated?
You do realize that some of these poker sites are owned by the same
tribe that regulates them? Or closely associated thereof. Conspiracy
theories are posted here all the time: Bad players must be rewarded to
keep them playing, Shills, Bots, etc... Not to mention back door
cheats (proven), colluding (proven), and multiple accounts (proven),
just to mention a few.

An independent statistical study caught the Absolute and Ultimate back
door cheaters. Where are the studies to prove online shuffles are
consistent and comparable to live? Where are the studies to prove
online play is fair? I'm Agnostic here so prove it.

I disagree. Sometimes I'll see really bad players get rewarded. I'll then
check them out on Poker Rankings or something similar and I find they are
indeed bad players. They are ranked very low.

So, you should be delighted that bad players get rewarded. Ultimately,
that's the attraction of poker to them and it keeps them coming back, which
is good for me.

just to mention a few.

An independent statistical study caught the Absolute and Ultimate back
door cheaters. Where are the studies to prove online shuffles are
consistent and comparable to live? Where are the studies to prove
online play is fair? I'm Agnostic here so prove it.

I don't have an issue with it so I'm not on the side that would need to
prove it. Seems to me if there's so many people that insist that the
online shuffle wasn't fair that they would go out of their ways to try and
prove it, and so far there hasn't been a single shred of evidence to prove
that the shuffle is not 100% fair.

I'll throw it out again, I have a pokertracker database with over 1
million hands in it. I can set up a private download for anyone that
wants it. There should be enough data there to determine if things are
fair or not.

I didn't do a study, but I do have over 1 million hands in a poker tracker
database of PLO that I've offered to give to anyone that is interested in
running the numbers.

I have much more online experience than live (like probably 95/5), but
I've seen the exact same things in live game than I've seen online. Those
who say the online shuffle is different simply don't understand how the
game works.

Hi Arlo:

It appears it takes a passive style of play to beat online games and
I just will not play that way.

This example is not passive play by you or him.

Passive play with good hands beats people who
regularly fire bets with nothing or weak hands.

Calling with a draw where you have correct odds,
is a good play.

Aggressive play beats people who fold too easily.

Aggressive play with good hands beats people
who call too much.

Adjust your style to take advantage of your opponents'
weaknesses! Saying "I will not play passively" would
be like Tiger Woods saying "I will not use my
seven iron!"

It was a sample of a bad beat not passive play. Passive play is more than
one hand it is an overall mindset of play.

Understood. But why do you feel that passive play can win online? I have
heard many times from various sources that passive players get crushed
online.

I think you might have heard wrong. In my experince, the average online
player tend to be too aggressive, and calling too loosely. Therefore
passive play 'usually' wins the most. You will have the odd suck-outs of
course, but most of the time you will take their money.


'So donkeys, come rally,
And the last hand let us raise!
The miracle suck-outs will tally,
And save the donkey race!'
