Why have I been playing poker for last year and half: just to find out "what is variance"
How can you be so sure: year and half ago I didn't know what is better flush or straight and I was playing better than today when i know all about equity and hand strength and position and and and...
What bothers me most: player I have less than 5 hand in history.
Please explain: problem become obvious when I realized that with top of my range I'm regularly loosing against this players (if not better preflop then approving later drastically). So I started to mark them with special color. Guess what! I never see that color (players) on tables again.
Anything else: yes I'm very happy that I spent just €30 of my money and learn all of this with no deposit bonus.
Thank you bankrollmob for giving me free experience! and plase dont give me mob points for this.

After reading this several times I still can't figure what you are trying to say,except the poker sites are stealing , your money, but I can't figure how you came to this conclusion.and if you really want to see a player again then write their name down and do a player search.

Yes it is strange post and I wanted it to be like this I can't say they are stealing from me since i basically didn't deposit any money and this is also reason why I can't be mad but it. In year and half I got impression where it is going.
And don't say their software is approved by someone that it's not rigged (OK you can if you are well paid by ...). With so often updates no one can check all his code and prove it's bullet prove. If this would be possible then there wouldn't be bugs after every release.

if it wasnt for variance, casual players wouldnt play poker at all. How would you make money then?
its poker, everyone has to win sometimes, regardless of how bad u think someone played that hand and still sucked u out, if those people who make bad calls (like me ! ) couldnt win , like ever, they would simply stop playing poker. And you dont want that to happen, do you

And you want to say to me that poker is not rigged??? WTF where do you live??? It's really no wonder it's dying. pissing in the wind
------------ when I'm close to get first chunk ($60 for 2500 points on winnerpoker) of NDB it starts b******t. In really small sample of 4400 hand (this month) after I reached 2k points, bad beat after bad beat after... loosing more than 11bb per hand with pocket AA, KK and QQ (overall loss is 0,21 bb per hand). This must hell of a deviation? Or was I just lucky not loosing for last year and half?
