The thing is, they are right about poker being a losing proposition. And it is "rigged", but not in the way they think. You can only win when you play substantially better than your opponents, due to the rake (the rake is where it is "rigged", because it weighs you down quite a bit, making it a hard game to beat).
Players of equal ability playing each other will all lose money fast.
So on average it's best not to play, unless you are willing to pay, or study that much harder than your opponents.

It will come at some point, most probably when someone else will hit something better on river Aint that the story most of the times. That happens to me mostly when i play tournaments, Always a good way to tilt

Posted by ratovic80: Will this thread be turning in to fuckpokerstars.com little brother?
look at the first 4 games on 100k that just started, notice them pairs on board all the time?
does it look random to you if its 16/20 games with pair on board and most of times flush draw or straight draw or A
P.S. I recommend you to withdraw most of your $$$ there is just too obvious not to be noticed now. Has nothing to do with badbeats or hating stars i still love them as they have best turneys but right now everyone can notice, simple open a table or turney and go play and see for yourself.
