Pokerstars has software that it uses against players who have been barred from chatting. No matter what your hand you will lose so they don't have to monitor you in the room.

I'm searching something else because to me betsson-eurobets sucks. I go up so slowly.
Their software is horrible and money eater, but I can't explain certain incredible scenes.
Cd poker seems sovietic and even fulltilt looks gloomy. I'll dismiss them.
Still looking around, still searching.

You are absolutely right !! I just lost 5 hands on the river where I was 4-1 fav. And last night lost with AA, KK and QQ in same tourney. I lost my chat a long time ago.

poker stars has the worst random card generator ever!!! on every 7-8 game u can see four of a kind,20-30 game straight flush,when u go all in before the flop it always ends with full house,straight,flush it never ends by winning on high card or pair ,avoid the poker stars if u like your money.

i believe stars does 3 things. 1 they favor the karger stack on sng's which leads to faster turnover = more buyins = more profit. 2 they like to keep the donks around 3 yhey punish complainers...other than that its a good

Listen to what I say, and it does NOT refer to
Pokerstars especially.
There are three men (they know what I mean) who are going to (or have already) kill(ed) the beauty of a game named online-Poker. Whatever the benefit is (or was), it is manifest that they have to be ashamed !

totally agree with that never played for real money and never will there. seen so many strange hands it's ridiculous. been playing several yrs there.been at 10-11mil the last month but seems that when i get over 11 the crap starts.played 175 hands and 86 had no face cards(not counting the K4, A2 etc crap). just played over 300 hands 2day never had AA, KK but had QQ and lost what are the odds of that. pokerstars does suck

I just put $50 on Pokerstars as a casual player. I started out winning hands that I shouldn't. Then after a while, I noticed that I was getting screwed out of hands where I overwhelmingly outplayed my opponent. Example: I have pocket Queens in my hand. Blinds are high so I decide to go all in. My opponent calls with Pocket 7's. I hit a Queen on the flop to all but ensure a winning hand, then on the turn, and the river, my opponent hits back to back 7's - Four of a kind. I lose $20, and PokerStars still sucks. And another thing, once you withdraw money from their site, don't plan on ever winning again. Sure you will win tournaments for small cash, but you will never stay afloat. I've fallen for this site too many times, and this time i'm FINISHED. I advise anyone looking to play online poker to stay away from this site!!

I wish I had read this thread sooner.
I started playing on this site over the last weekend. In the beginning I was winning according to the odds, it was easy to do the math. After a while I started losing hands I should have won. And I don't mean one or two, but I mean every single one of them.
I paid in to as many flops as I could, and practically every time when I got something good, I got beat by a hand that sucked ass pre-flop, as well as at flop. Somehow it always turned aginst me at turn and river, overwhelmingly aginst the odds.

On another note:
If you right click on other players on the table and do a player search(on bottom of list), you'll find that in every table there are players who don't exist. Search produces no result. Other players may be engaged in up to 20(!) different games, simultaneously, including tournaments. One player was in 16 tables, 11 of which fast games.
I know there are good players out there, but...

I miss party poker. too bad you couldn't play for real money anymore in the states.

I have played on Full Tilt for about 8 months and cashed about 1k in tourneys (The highest I ever got was on the only other site I played, 6k bankroll (5900 profit) cashed completely before US law, I was scared). I've played A LOT of online poker, and Full Tilt is the best.

Why does Stars suck? Number uno is the software. I just downloaded today and played for the heck of it (I've been on FT only). I love Tilt, have the cash, just wanted to see if it could hold it's own. It looks like the old DOS programming. If you take out the avatars on FT, the table is stunning.

Second, the interface of stars is pathetic. The payouts are not shown until the registration *rebuys and add on as well* is finished. At Tilt, you clikc on a tourney lobby and you see what it's paying then and there. If more join, it will update, but you don't have to wait until it starts. Why should I get on Stars, have to open the lobby, see the %, get my calculator sheesh. Tilt's interface is better.

Lastly, there is so many players on Stars. I know the payout in tourneys is higher, but that's less to the winner. You don't have to go through as many on Tilt, but it's still a large number either way.

Graphics: Tilt (Stars is downright sad, all that money and that's the best they got)

Interface: Tilt (The screen is a jumbled mess on Stars, on Tilt, everything is laid out in plain view. Heck, even try sorting on Stars by buy in and it's listed in the tournament description).

I don't want to hear about all the bad beats. It's online, you're going to see quadruple the hands you see in an hour live, more hands equals more bad beats. The more bad players that play and don't fold when they should is more bad beats too.

GO WTIH FULL TILT. Heck, even look at the pros. Tilt has Ivey, Ferguson, Lederer etc. Stars has Daniel N. and a bunch of one time Main Event winners who got lucky. Moneymaker????? Ha. Raymer?????? Ha. Ivey could beat them two douches blindfolded.

I played PKR,after 4 years of playing I hardly can pickup a playable hand,sometimes there is nothing to play for 8 hours!!Really!!
Once you do play,you have to be carefull about hidden trips,or flushes and strghts,every single hand Im 80% favour I lose when all the money is in the pot,except against a shorty,then you win easilly.
You got AA,you raise big,flop 822,raise reraise allin,showdown he has A2s,this is not once but so many times.
Its bllsht to say that this happens more because you play more hands online,but how is it that if you only play AA,KK and QQ that you still lose,you should win much quicker then,not?
There is no long run,you have to get an age of 200 to get profitable run of big hands,all players who say that online poker is fair are fake,ofcourse there are winners,but onlinepoker needs them,also a ''satellite winner'',ofcourse there has to be one,but all those fkkrs like me think it can happen also,thats where all profit lies because you can play what you want it wont happen never ever!!
If you watch the pro's on tv theyre even playing worser hands then me,if I would play like that Im a ''donk'',yeah right,they never lay down a hitted AK when there is action,they never fold 2 pair etc etc,online your only task is laying down good hands.
