A river is never going to be 'rigged enough' for me.. I know enough about statistics to comprehend the futility of looking at singles hands in a vacuum, when trying to determine anomalies. The fact is - when it comes to a river card - the worst you can possibly lose, on the river, is vs a '1 outter' - which - given the 4 cards on the table, the two in your hand and the two in your opponents hand, it's a 1/44 chance of happening.. unfortunate, but hardly mind-blowing.
If you just compile a list/thread/whatever of every single hand where you lose after being ahead, of course it's going to look like the cards are against you.. But when you actually view all those hands, not in a vacuum, but as a collection of hands, including all the other hands - where your cards held, or were uneventful, or whatever- then suddenly there is nothing unusual at all, about the hands where you lose.

to Australian poker PRO: the fact that our rigged river master is a fcuking loser needs to be proved as well- actually the question that could be raised here: is he just a loser, or is he a fcuking loser...if we expand even more: what makes him a loser- is it the fact that he is fcuking while losing or is it the rigged river...what are the percentages involved in in a hand that makes you a fcuking loser over just the ordinary loser...and so on

IMHO; He's a loser in the literal sense - he is LOSING at the game of poker, as in he is literally losing his money, by playing poker, he is a losing player.. The 'fucking' is just to show that this literal losing is compounded by the figurative 'losing' as in 'you're a loser at life'.

Posted by jessthehuman: I'm going to come clean, since I'm not that active on here any more and rarely play poker now days.
I *AM* an employee of Poker Stars. I had denied it every time somebody has called me on it. But it's true, I have had a deal with Poker Stars for extra rakeback each month, to shill the site on various poker forums. Since I no longer play there. I can tell you all the truth now.

sorry dude what I gonna say is - you are bad poker player , or if u dont agree with that than just realise - poker is about luck too man. This is a 6-max table . 6x2 12 card were dealt, than is 40 card in the cards board. he got 4 outs from 40 card , its a 10 % to win this hand. And this is a 1000 times more chance than somebody whos thinking like u to win a big amount of money on the any tourney of a cash table. P.S. Poker is not about to win one particullar hand - poker is about to win more hands than lose. And I think the best players win about 70 % of their hands (I talking about showdown hands , or anyway its just mine opinion) . So I dont wanna swearing around with u just calm down , and if u think that the stars are cheating just leave the site, but if u do u must think that all poker (not just online ) is entire cheating. So maybe just spend your time in thinking to quit the poker at all.
