Come on seems to become a hobby saying FT is rigged etc. Yes I've had tons of losing streaks there, and I give less badbeats then I recieve. But lately I recieve less badbeats, and you know why? I don't overplay hands like AJ,KQ or KJ, which are marginal hands if you don't hit big, and no, a pair of kings with KJ is NOT a strong hand. I always see people whining about bad beats etc, but I play also live, and I can tell you, you see the same crazy s**t happen. For exemple: One day I was playing in my weekly regular cashgame, two people were all in, set vs overset. The low set made quads, therefore it's rigged? Or two weeks ago, AQ vs Q10: Q10 makes the straight, rigged? Online you'll just see a lot of crazy things happen because you play so many hands, 500 hand online is not a lot, so you'll see a lot of beats. BTW: I used to think also it wasn't fair how I always lost, I was a decent player, but if I look back now at my old level, I call myself a donk that time. Just learn how to play the game before you say it's rigged. Also, if it's rigged, why do you continue playing??

Guys get in the real, as long as the sites keeping raking hands for theyr own business will be always suspicion. This is a natural human thinking, iam not sure if something is rigged or not, but s**t happens.
As in life we deal with lot of corruption in the poker sites too. Maybe its rigged but iam sure there is much more people making collusion in the tables too. The bad thing about poker, is that right now nobody plays for fun, they want always to get advantage of other players.

I have found when playing micro limits on fulltilt there are a lot of players who are willing to call to the rive and you need to adjust your play to deal with this. It is difficult to push of a player with bottom pair when placing continuation bets. Hence I am more carefull with my c-bets when I miss with my AK, AQ etc.
