it's just mine oppinion of course, but in a five week was loosing to often to 88 with a higher pairs on a preflop all- in. for example today on a 3 hours session lost 5 times 3 of them had pocket KK and twice pocket rockets - but "magic of 88 on 888"

Posted by Macubaas: From what i know 888 has tons of fish players and i you play a solid game(thats tight aggressive) you can make a nice profit without going all in preflop with a pair...
You should 3 bet more instead of going all in that often
so if you say there are lots of fish in the room- how do expect fish to act when you 3 bet them? fold or go all in themselves- they are not too much about strategy- if they see any decent cards (any pair, ace any card, two picture cards) they usually just ship it, so there is no 3 betting with the fish

As much as I can say about 888, it USED to have a lot of fishes. When i started playing it was about 40% - 60% of players (was about 3 years ago). As for now, the player level has risen up. There's as many fish as in any poker site (PokerStars, PartyPoker for ex.). When I was just starting poker888 also seemed as "magic" place because there was a lot of cards that had to win but still lost, BUT, that's just poker. Of course players who has to blame something for their losses will say site is rigged and so on. If you wanna think that, well it's your choice. But if that's what you think, then WHY THE HELL ARE YOU STILL PLAYING? My advice: forget about losses and keep playing for your own fun, because blaming someone won't change the fact that you lost.
