Those fishes at 888 poker are driving me crazy the latest time
They keep hitting the river the table after calling w bad hands & no odds at all

For example
Calling w T8o OOP, callling the flop A97 & turn with a gutshot & hitting it on the river
Calling w Q8s OOP, calling down until the river to hit their flush

i've seen them raising UTG with hands like 92s and calling a 3bet from a TAG, guess who won the hand?

And this are just a few examples.
I know that bad beats happen but after seeing a large number og them
you should start to wonder if 888 poker is not rigged Blink
But that is not possible according to the poker community

Anyone playing at 888 with the same feeling?

This is not just 888 poker.. this is every online poker room ever... Which is why live play is so much better, people wont play so stupid live as they have to look you in the face when they do it..

Yea the donks who keep getting the luck is very annoying. Happens to me a lot on the river. Playing against donks can be profitable at times thought so that's good Smile

Not an exclusive to 888pokers. If you start playing long enough in another poker site also
i am sure you will come up to this again.
There are all shorts of kinds of players in every room.
You just need to be lucky not to bump on them Smile

Those kind of situation where you get cll and beat up by donkey is really frustratig. I understand your pain but if it can make you feel better it's not only occuring on 888... every poker site got their load of very lucky donkey. I think jokerstar might be on the top of them all

Sorry but what?

You hate playing against poor players and fish?

If you can't beat them then you are a poor player and need to look at your own play rather than criticise them!

Fish is a really "good" player (for me Smile ) , but that stupid donkeys annoing. If you have good hand at preflop you perforce folding it becauze one of them pushed All in with pair of sixes Aww crap! Shock

Play wit thems is wery dangeros and unpredictable. You have only 2 opts: All in or fold. And that's not p.o.k.e.r.

I would love to play against people like that, just play premium hands. Easy game.

It's all about having a good BRM and beating variance because of skill. You will generate profit if you study and apply and move up stakes wisely.

Everyone can do it but at least 60% of people playing poker refuse to study or become at a certain level and stop after that. Even pro's are always learning and adjusting to the modern players/strategy.

That first hand isn't bad at all. It's an up and down straight draw and if I'm in a tourney with a certain stack size I'm gonna try and get all my chips in if I think my opponent has an ace.
But yeah, happens everywhere and is pretty annoying.
Pokerstars is by far the worst I've come across tho. All in preflop 3 ways, the worst hand pre will usually get the win Confused

Hands like the ones you posted up there you can get on absolutely all poker platforms...

Maybe you have a downswing on 888 poker but you can always make a pause and try other sites too Blink

Playing against fish and donkeys should be profitable in the long run.
That's why i try to look them up in the lobby (cash tables)
Finding them is not a problem because on 888 you can mark the players with an icon.
I try to sit on the left of them so i have position on them.

So far so good ... but now i have to stop my bad run Blink

I have to agree with vic up there,.... the absolute WORST of the WORST can be found in the BankrollMob tourneys on PokerStars....

....and it's not a matter of "if you can't beat them you have to look at your own play..."

When they play the way they do.....they have nothing to lose.... which reduces ANYTHING you do to 100% chance..... Confused

I had that hand in reverse a couple of years ago at a cash table. I raise in the CO with 44, he reraises me on the button with AKs, I call. Flop comes down, I have trips he has nut flush, check and check. Turn is a 4, I check he bets I call. River is the last 4, check he bets and I reraise. Nice hand when it goes your way but quite rare.

Mahdrof..i think you made a mistake in your post because if you have 44 and after the flop you have trips.Then the turn is a 4 so you have quads and then the river also a 4 ?? That are too many 4's i believe right ??

Poker Etiquette eats player yet again.

Why do players get so hung up on others not doing the 'right' thing? Yeah it drives you crazzzzzzzzy but remember that poker (while being more than just a game) is GAMBLING and some people are more prone to take risky bets than others.

You're right! This hand happened to me a few years ago and I'm getting old and forgetful. Now that I think about it again I missed the flop, hit trips on the turn and quads on the river. The way my story went I would have had five "4", which would be proof definitive that something is up with online poker. Tongue Thanks for helping me set the record straight on my post.
