    As I say, you can go an hour without seeing a single player with a pocket pair and then all of a sudden.

    I play on PokerStars and Full Tilt. I used to play on a bunch of other sites but since Frist and the "moral" far right cracked down I've consolidated. I'm profitable and enjoy it.

    I would never play for real money on line. Foxwoods is close enough. I have 1.25 million in play chips. You can win its just bogus dealing though.

    The mainstream sites aren't fixed. Anyone saying anything to the contrary is just a paranoid conspiracy theorist with little understand of how probability works.

    I haven't seen anyone give a single motive for precisely why an online poker site would rig their games short of the preposterous notion that it is rigged so that an employee or representative of the website tends to win. Meanwhile, the risk of getting caught fixing games would be astronomical - any such website would go bankrupt overnight.

    Personally I just don't like Foxwoods. I can't wait until Mohegan opens their new poker room, hopefully sometime this year.

    They do it for a couple reasons. 1.) By winning with bad play in freerolls people will want to start playing for money. 2.) By creating bad beats they build a lot of big pots and and a lot of big rakes. When I lived in Vegas I played at The Orleans poker room every day. They ran a bad beat jackpot there and if you lost with As full of J or better you would win the jackpot. I saw that Jackpot get hit once in one year. On line that jackpot would be hit literally every second. I still play at Foxwoods and rarely see 2 people get pocket pairs at the same time never mind 3-5. Which is the norm on-line. And I've seen people have hot seats and seem unbeatable but, for the most part the pots are spread around the table. On-line you ALWAYS see one seat favored. They don't fear getting caught because it is almost impossible to prove. My experience of literally 1000s of hours of play with real decks in a real poker rooms is what proves to me what I'm seeing is not right. But, it isn't proof to anyone else. And there will always be people like you that just insist it isn't and couldn't be rigged. But, who's regulating them? None of them are based in the U.S. And actually by their nature are illegal in the U.S. already.

    I played at Mohegan when they had a poker room. It was so small it was hardly worth the trip. To me, I see no difference in any casino. They all look the same on the inside. I've been hearing for years now that Mohegan is going to open a new poker room. I'll believe it when I see it.

    Illogical because if we assume playing poorly in freerolls but winning anyway encourages someone to play for real, then we must also assume that the person who played well but lost becomes equally discouraged from playing for real money. Unless your contention is the ridiculous notion that the "poor players who win" are real people and the "good players who lose" are casino shills.

    You've made this statement before and I didn't see the logic then and I don't see the logic now. There is just no realistic cause and effect to suggest that bad beats leads to bigger rakes. Furthermore, even if we accept this illogical notion for the sake of arguement, it still comes down to the belief that an online casino is going to risk their entire enterprise to marginally increase the rake. Puh-leeze.

    Sorry, but I just don't believe you here (no offense, but the more you write about poker, the more I suspect you have no clue what you are talking about). The board itself will show Aces full of Jacks (or better) more than once per year. Any time you have 4 of a kind on the board, then someone with 4 of a kind has just lost (unless the board's kicker is higher than EACH player's resulting in a split pot). You could have only one table in the entire casino, and that's still going to happen more than once per year.
    Yeah, see this is the kind of hyperbole that makes it difficult/impossible to take anything you say seriously.

    Wow, that's amazing how you have the ability to tell what cards people have without seeing them. Maybe the players at Foxwoods know that low pocket pairs are a pretty weak hand so they are more likely to fold them and you, as an observer or participant, never know that someone just folded pocket 7's because the board shows A-K-10 and he's knows he's beat (whereas an online player probably thinks he's got a nice hand and is foolish enough to play on).

    Again, this is the kind of hyperbole that makes it impossible to take what you say seriously. Not to mention that there would be no motive for an online site to favor one particular seat (unless your contention is the ridiculous notion that they are favoring a player acting as a shill for the casino).

    Sounds to me like you're just another delusional gambler who only sees what he wants to see.

    You're putting words in my mouth. I never said such a thing couldn't be accomplished. What I said was that there was no real motivation to do so and it would provide an infinitesimely small reward with a ridiculously high risk so no well-established poker website would be stupid enough to do such a thing.

    Well they are building an entirely new building (The Casino of the Wind) and the new poker room will be incorporated therein. This has been the plan for about 24 months now so I guess that explains why you've been hearing it "for years". I don't know why you find it so tough to believe given the popularity of poker that one of the biggest casinos in the world would seek to add a poker room...

    You're funny QuiGon. You are entitled to your opinion (and no matter how highly you obviously think of yourself that's all it is. Your opinion.) But, don't insinuate that I would actually make up anything I post here or anywhere. If you'd like when I get a chance I will take pictures of my poker room card from The Orleans and the jacket and hat I won playing poker there if that helps you. :rolleyes: Because believe me YOU'RE the one who has no clue what you are talking about.

    This from the guy who thinks only once per year did someone lose with Aces Full of Jacks (or better) in a major casino's poker room. Yeah. Right. Sure. :rolleyes:

    Hell, I saw the very thing happen at Foxwoods only 3 nights ago. I had A-K, my opponent had A-Q, board came A-A-Q-K-blank. I got lucky on the turn and I made a small fortune. But I guess that only happens once per year at The Orleans. :rolleyes:

    ooooo... you won a jacket and a hat...?!? Wow. :rolleyes: And here all I've won is several thousands of dollars...
    Wow. The "I know you are but what am I?" defense. Considering the obscene lack of intelligence and thought in your previous posts, I didn't expect anything less.

    It's obvious you have more brick-and-mortar experience than I do. It's equally obvious that I have more online experience than you do. I have seen some pretty strange stuff - in both settings. If you want to live the life of a paranoid conspiracy theorist convinced everyone in the world is out to get you and there is a grand international conspiracy to rob you of your $100, then you have a Constitutional Right to wallow in ignorance.

    For a bad beat jackpot you would be required to have a pocket pair. When I lived in Vegas I literally made my living playing poker. I never worked at a job one day there and I had a nice modern apartment and bought a brand new 2003 car which I paid $15,000 for and paid cash. AND THAT IS THE GOD's HONEST TRUTH. So no I'm not trying to impress you and you certainly are not impressing me. Believe what you want about on-line poker I couldn't care less.

    Ohhhhh.... so now you're changing what you said before... you've gone from (direct quote, your words) "They ran a bad beat jackpot there and if you lost with As full of J or better you would win the jackpot" to "you would be required to have a pocket pair"... another reason it's impossible to take what you say seriously... but yeah, I am sure you see such a situation on line (another direct quote, your words) "literally every second"... do you even know what "literally" means...?

    Do you know how stupid you sound saying "you can go an hour without seeing a single player with a pocket pair and then all of a sudden"...? I mean, does every player that folds his hand reveal it to you, so somehow you know any and every single pocket pair that was or wasn't folded...? That's an amazing ability... Can I get software for that or something...?

    Well obviously you are trying to impress people since you are constantly stating "I won this, I won that, I played for hours, I made a living playing poker, I won a hat, I bought a car, etc, etc..." Sounds to me like the only one you're fooling is yourself. :rolleyes:

    I used to know a guy who was convinced the NFL was fixed. He would take every single fluke play that happened and use it as evidence that he was right. You sound exactly like him.
