Seriously it's probably just running bad, bad luck etc.

But 888 can f**k off. Every tournament I get it in good with AK+ and some stupid Aussie/Bulgarian f**kwit shoves me all in with Q8o from mid-position after I raised it 4x the BB on the BB with AK. Or something to that effect. Just insane - i'm sure the site says poker not gambling...

Anyway I have lots of notes etc which is annoying to 'lose' but I can't stand the site any more. SNGs blow anyway, hardly any action beyond 9-max. Thinking about it I should have migrated sooner, I guess we get habitual.

Sure I might be the s**t player, but I seriously doubt that as I'm not playing terribly, although the last week has been killer downswing.

Anyone else done this to freshen them up and get some new action?

Beyond PS and FTP where are other action packed sites?

Hey noonlion. Sorry to hear about the bad luck.

BRM has plenty of NDB on many sites. Why don't you take advantage of one to see a new site. Sometimes a cooling off period works best for me.

Good luck Smile

Mercy buckets.

I'm sure things will turn around...although just had KK, raised then shoved on a reraise and its a three way. The reraiser had AJs and found the goodness in his heart to go all in against two EP all-ins and hits the ace. Aww crap!

I saw so much suckouts in all different online poker rooms, i believe nothing more. But the biggest problems in the lower limitits: to much player in every Hand. So they cracked every premium hand. Ist only a game...

Common man you should be happy that the players at 888poker is playing like this, raising s**t hand and going all in with dominated hands is the way of the donkeys and you should be glad they are because in the long term in will be +EV.

For the traffic, yeah it sucks you cannot do anything about it, if you want SNGs, go for poker stars or ipoker skins thats where the games are.

Switch to cash, if you playing Micros all rooms are soft and have enough action for your needs. Anyway good luck with it and hope you grow to like the donkey action because you will win long term!

have to agree with Heskor here- you really want to have your AK called by Q8o don't you? u raised an epic question in your post...maybe you are a sh1tty player? well imo if you don't want you AK get called by Q8o- then you really are Big Smile
sure it's frustrating, but this is poker, not a hole digging, where you are paid whenever u dig a new hole...you might do the right things in poker and still get no reward- just keep on rolling or end your career in poker...doubt that changing to other poker room will change anything...

good luck

Obviously I'm happy to have AK vs Q8 or AK vs Q10 or any number of shitty hands.

But I've been screwed so many times I feel like some poker whore - on one hand you want idiots to do these shoves against you but they seem to catch them late in tournaments way too much and 888 blows anyway.

There are players than run under EV despite having it in with the best of it - not quite sure that's the case but must be very close to it.

For me 888 poker was one of the most profitable poker sites, now i'm on a break from playing there.

My advice would be to take couple of days off from playing there, and then try again. Other site with good traffic is PP but i personally do not recommend it.

Any site is profitable, but you always need decent rakeback to show good profit longterm.

Good luck and I hope that the card distribution will be better for you in the future.

If you have a long downswing a break and change of site is a good thing to do.
For me when i was playing often some time ago, i was moving from one site to another
to stop that Smile Most of the times worked. Either that or i got lucky and would have happened
either way in the site i was playing Smile
