I've lived many years now from playing poker and yea its a tough way to make money, we pay too much rake and somethimes you take shots that dont work out well. I shouldnt begin with it, but if you are good and want to do everything i mentioned above you can make money for sure pokerstars or any other site i prefer another site ps mostly good players.

Hello, I am not going to tell you how many ridiculous hands managed to beat me - you'd think that I am a sore loser. Rather, I tell you about some really weird stuff I can't understand - all of it leads me to the belief that pokerstars is rigged or something is really wrong with it or people are hacking it, I don't know. I've played poker for many many years.

But have never been in a game where the other players would not play like humans I mean I played online poker before with real people, and when I did hatthat, Isaw all the things which people do: But when I play cent or dollar cash games on pokerstars, most of the time no one ever says anything, it feels like totally bereft of human interaction or even thinking Moreover, I come from a tiny country, but people who are sitting on the same table from my country don't chat back to me Overall the whole feeling is like I am not playing against humans 3.

Why would you do that? And why does this happen with such a regularity? The fact is that if you are winning, you are stronger and would rather linger - that is if you were human. There are so many people from Russia.. Anytime there's Russians, it feels like I am playing some computer bots. I've played one Russian the entire night - not one time did he behave like a person, send a chat message etc.

I have completely no recollection of his play as his play was machine-like, totally without any flavor. I tried to look him up and realized that he was playing at 12 tables simultaneously? How is that even possible????? I have never come across a bad sucker - in all those games, everybody was behaving the same - super tight and fairly clear game Many of the players can't be even looked up.. Games proceed one after another in a machine-style fashion.

No hesitating or strategizing can be discerned.. Overall, I am not sure how it's possible technically but I am pretty sure I was not playing humans on pokerstars. Stay away from this site. Well let me put this way. I have been playing poker for 10 years now and online for last 4 years. Having doubts all the way if PS is "fixed" I recently run the test. There is a lot of comments and articles considering different statistics and amount of data one needs to have available to be able to say thay game is fixed.

As for amount of data I disagree because what you really need is to compare the online game with regular one and look for patterns. Lets say that you play tournament players online vs the same one in some poker room.

Lets agree that you will still play on 1 table at the time, against 8 other players and that you have to most probably play avg. It is sure that online game will go much faster but it is still factor of hands which remains similiar. I have played 3 tournaments at the same time. Playing the very same table I happened to see within period of aprox. AKs I raced from button for this example doesnt matter how much 1 player called Player showed AA I lost Now this can happend. I had 5x bigger stack then player so we keep playing J9s I raced from button for this example doesnt matter how much 1 player called Player showed 99 I lost KK I raced from big blind for this example doesnt matter how much 1 player called KAA I checked again doesnt matter how much 1 player allin I called Player showed AA I lost Now you could say it can happen.

Yes it can but i saw this on other two tables with other players within same period of time and same tournaments. That is like impossible.

Get 3 times within period of 50 hands on 3 different tables 4 same cards on flop to get best hand - no way. Now as for Quads, Flush, etc. I can say that in ten years i can surely compare amount of hands played within last 4 years.

And that is what it is about. Here is the result: So my conclusion is that YES online poker is fixed. It seems that it is fixed or balanced the way that game force players to post big bets and run tournament faster ahead.

And that is where i am going with my theory. If the dealt cards provoke players to place higher bets, if all blinds raising is set to go faster and PS charge 1 time fee per tournament, isn't then important for PS owners to run high amount of tournaments at the same time? Amount of players today is more less same and earnigs of PS will be more less same too and to get them higher they have make sure that they run as many tournaments they possibly can no? So at the same time they need to get these players to play quickly so they subscribe to new tournament and pay another fee no?

That is for reason WHY they game is fixed. Today I received a threatening email from pokerstars. It says that registering at the last min in tournaments and trying to make the money is against the TOS and that if i continue to do it my account will be closed.

This involves late registration into certain tournaments" If playing within the rules of the game is a violation of the TOS that means that Pokerstars is no longer a legitimate poker site. I had left because it was so hard to get a hand at times.. I have played for 47 years and refuse to keep adding money to this scam.. I left it alone for 2 years and recently added 10 dollars to my account Just to see whats up,,and assure my self I was not imagining things.

Well it seems even worse now,,,its like I am playing a machine not other people.. I also notice that they are having trouble getting 50, people at any given time. I always do well in live games but again I can not make a hand and if I do the most unusual things come up and beat me So if you feel like you are going futz,,,you are not,,,you have no chance.

One thing Ive always wondered to is if they can take 10 dollars why cant they give it back if you do win???? Id love to table up with that punk Negrano,,looser. Luck is part of the game, other part of your game is your skills and patients I run bad as well, but you need only one day to turn it all around Minus their request of a statement showing my card number, after multiple attempts to explain to them its a debit card, affialited with my checking account , its not a credit card which displays the card number on the statement Numerous calls and they just tell me ita under investagation , give us a few dats, a year and a half later and still nothing.

I have played PS since it started business. Others experienced the same thing later in nlh also, known as "i will sit out here just to see you to donk the next 2-outer on the turn. There were runs when one ran normally, so it wasn't bad all the time. I have later moved to plo, but it was impossible to continue winning after Amaya became the owner. The tourneys, you can watch any tourney as well as play them and you will see it is "gay.

I could also mention limit holdem heads up, it used to work like a rubber band that when you went up, you were pulled double that down. I've played poker offline and on, but I've never seen such absurd hands in such frequent succession.

I'm at a 1,, buy in table, and a guy joins and immediately goes all in. Not that weird I guess, some people do this. So everyone folds and he takes the blinds. Next hand all in. Next hand all in; this time someone calls.

He ends up with 4 of a kind. OK, that is rare but I guess it happens. Then he folds a few, goes all in preflop once again and takes the blinds. He gets 4 of a kind again! Right then and there I should have left the table. I even said something in the chat but no one else left so I thought I'd see how things went.

Quite a few hands down the road, he loses a big hand and I see this as reassurance that the game might not be rigged. So then I get AK. It's just me and this guy that see the flop. I bet and he calls. Ok, this is looking really good. I check, and he goes all in. Guess what he has? Which means he hits a full house and knocks me out.

There are other hands he won that he had no business winning, and I just can't play this game anymore. The fact that getting 4 of a kind is infinitesimally small and he hit two in 6 hands is just ridiculous. Too many think poker Stars has no vested interest in rigging a tournament - wrong. The bad beats are all in favour of chip leaders in "all In situations" - the reason being the quicker they knock out players the quicker you start another tourney, thus providing a new hosting rake.

Watch, again and again completely improbable beats in favour of the chip leaders - losers head to another tourney and another buy in. I was dealt 10 clubs and 4 diamonds 4 times in a row!! Same cards, same suits.. Im not a math guy, but that seems pretty damn fishy. It wasn't just at the same tourney, or same table Im sure you have better odds of winning the powerball twice in a row, get hit by lightning 7 times in an hour and become president of the us than getting the exact same hole cards 4 hands in a row.

I've read many reviews here and they're nonsense. You post specific hands, and I have more bad beats a day than all hands written here combined, it makes no sense to post individual hands.

What I can say is that after 4 years of profitable poker I do think it's rigged. Bad players make it out on turn on river and I never do.

You can avoid it if you deposit in native currency first and then through the menu convert to USD. If you directly deposit into USD, 2. I think the game is rigged for bad players, to increase the volume of the same money going into rake.

If money goes from bad to good player directly, it will be withdrawn and pokerstars won't get to make profit, if it's played over and over again, pokerstars makes the most of profits, especially in trounaments. It's not some individual hands, it happened today ffs. I have played thousands and thousands of online, and real poker hands. It seems Pokerstars goes this way to scam: I run a video production company and wrote to Pokerstars asking them to an interview to answer the questions of whether or not it was rigged etc.

I know the email got delivered, but I never received a response. Yes, their deal may be certified, but they never state how many people - most notably the Russians - have cracked that deal and can "see" the cards. I play poker - For more than fifteen years. How the hell does THAT happen? When the pros start saying it stinks, you have to take notice. How does that happen? Someone else noted here, that you have AA Usually, it's a Russian. Yet, Pokerstars continually says their software is validated for a "fair deal".

Yet, if you raise this with PS, they just say over and over how certificated they are. I've played a LOT of poker - online and live I entered and won my first live tourney. I am NOT a poor player, by any means. I'm not the best either. Pokerstars is rigged - they should prove it's not, rather than us have to prove it is. Because, so far, the overwhelming evidence detailing rigged plays has been ignored totally by them.

I tried pokerstars some years ago made some statistical analysis and concluded that the site was rigged. A particular player that I wrote about in my small report suddenly made his statistics unavailable at Sharkscope when I wrote about him. He was a real psychic. Nearly always winning when he was the dog.

I thought I should try it again just for fun. It was not fun. How they help the small stack fish. How the miracle card turn up every fugging time for the bad player.

How the preflop allins always ends in a hit and mostly in straights and full houses. You wait and wait and move in call with AK when someone moves in with jack 7 and the board is jack jack xx 7. Another tournament ak vs j7. Then he only hits two pair on the flop. Move in with 10 3 against aa and hit straight. I want to talk with a person that says this shit is random.

WE can sit and play together and discuss. Does it really exist anyone on this planet that thinks this garbage is random? I have studied statistics full time for nearly one year in the university and passed my exams so I know this site is bull.

So many ways to get bad beat. I have been losing like this in up to 20 tourneys per 2 hours in a day. They dismiss it by explaining how you just got the short stick today but if we analyze 1 mil hands in period of 1 month then the math will prevail. However, it's beautiful how they manage to get you losing in a tourney where you play good and tight. Because they know they can't make put your money in the pot for nothing they will deal you 99, you will hit a flop like 9 7 3, so obviously you bet and the guy next to you goes all in.

What do you do??? There is of course always the idiot excuse as well. I had a situation after 4 h of playing to raise under the gun with AA and the guy on the button with half the stack not pressed by the blind or something decides to go all in with 89 off and hits on flop.

How peculiar is that. The worse of all is that they always do it not in the beginning in some small tourney but in a decisive moments against stacks that can cripple you. Something else they do as well maybe it is part of the 'fairness' or 'faire chances' plrs get, not sure what they call it but they always put you on a table with stack that are your size. Once I was playing a tourney of aprox people and in the first 10 min I had huge hands and very good pots to make around 60K while the average stack was So I am being placed at a table with this plr who has 62K.

I am being dealt KK and he is was dealt AA. I could believe that this could happen. To be moved at a table with the other huge stack in a tourney of people and to get KK against AA. Surely I was all in at a point and I lost. What are the odds.

I am sure there are superusers grinding for the house. I dont care what anyone says about it PokerStarsUK is rigged. You are constantly given cards to entice you into the pot and draws to continue. It is impossible that they are randomly giving out cards. I continuously see 5 or more players all in ALL holding face cards.

Mathematically this is bizarre. I have screenshots of bad beats as the critics call it where I'm being reraised preflop holding jj and they hit 2 pairs on the flip holding cards like 10,4 off suit.

I play live poker at a high level winning thousands and I will never put another penny into online poker. It's a scam and it's rigged. While I enjoy the game in theory, this site poker stars I have come to the conclusion that it is a scam. Most common AA holding to only lose to or some ridiculous cards, with the dagger coming on the River. We have a saying, the name should be changed to River Stars!!!

The games I play are. I would love to find another site that I could feel confident in its honesty. I believe this article is well written, but it is lacking data. Now, I have been analysing and compiling my own data, and i got to say, things look pretty unbelievable. I play live poker regularly with my friends, both cash game and tournaments. Bad beats happen, but theory of large numbers works out in the end. In Pokerstars, it just doesn't.

I could spend a bunch of time writing all my statistical analysis here, but there is no point. But I do have to point out some of my most interesting findings: This is based on several hundred hands with these specific odds, which make it pretty much beyond doubt that it is not a coinsidence. Just over the last two days, I had AA three times in 50 hands yesterday and twice in 20 hands today.

Going every hand all-in pre flop had one fold, and 4 calls. Each of those calls WON, 3 times against 88, one time against Now, even if you consider there are thousands of hands being delt every second, there is still no chance in the world for this to happen to a single player. Noone can really claim that the site is rigged, but there is really no quality assurance to make sure it isn't. When compared to real poker, there are just way too many unbelievable events that occur. In any case, if you like poker, my suggestion is to go play it for real, and not give money to scam sites.

Love this losing players complaining Run your own stats from hand history, people tend to forget when they win as favourites but remembering losts against the odds. I did it as well, they will send you your hand history, so if you have time and are willing to put some effort, go on.

After I went through this, I found out nothing extraordinary, all ok with maths How about the fact that the recent pokerstars update that was mandatory rendered it impossible to contact their support team. On free play why do you have to wait a long time to play after you have lost one stack? I had to wait 8hrs before they would give me another stack. That's terriable it's not real money. I happen to know a thing or two about Microsoft software flaws, and I can honestly say their is either a group of kgb hackers, taking peoples money through sql injections, or this site is running a international scam that only favors those who are in on the scam.

I know the majority of "so-called professionals that made a career on this website are all of "Jewish" decent, which makes me think this is nothing but a Ponzi scheme and were all the goyim". But no their not racist their willing to fuck over anyone not in their circle. I would like to believe its lack of knowledge and sql injectors taking advantage of the sites poor software. The truth is earning money and saving it, is the only way to get ahead in life. Okay so first of all let me start by saying I played my 1st game of poker back in or 10 and just fell in love with the game I completely understand that, in poker, at times even 2 7 offsuit can destroy pair A A.

But man pokerstars has a complete differwnt vibe to it. Now I have won a few big tourneys that I am very proud of eg Their weekly bronze freeroll I ended up making the final table on that tourney it had entrants.. Just in this tournament 'bronze star' I flopped AA and was near button and had to call an all in so I did the guy had 66 Flop A6k,J,6 he had a four of kind on river and my full house fot beat Another example is a 30k bounty builder.

I had made the few last tables and went all in After I made my flush on the turn and got called but a three of a kind but on the river he hits a full house.

I lose all my k chip stack. Another big tourney but this was near the start. There are many more times some seedy stuff has happened. As for my winnings I have won around I will play poker on future most probably live. Look man its an online gambling company how much morals do you expect them to have.. I only play the play money games and they are most definitely fixed so there is no way I would play with real money.

I have been playing for a few years and I now know at what time of the day they will let me win, in fact almost guarantee I will win, no matter what cards I get. I also know when there is no way possible for me to win, no matter what cards I get. It is obvious that it is programmed that way to make you feel like you can't lose and will eventually switch to the real money games.

Anybody that actually uses their own money to play on Poker Stars is being played for a fool, it is a computer generated program that is programmable to do whatever they want it to. Play money is fine but don't fall for their scam. Stars is a scam. I read the comments here and just the same thing happend me.

Soon I have to not be taken out becauce of bad beats How mutch will I loose this time: Flopp was AQT spades. I hope he has flush I cant belive how many badbets happend online and at stars. I play some cash.. Today played 3 tournments. I bet on flopp
