Last 5 days I played on the ring tables at Full Tilt Poker. I started to play with $0.83 which I won at the SNG and played 3 days only micro limits (N - New Members) $0.01/$0.02. So, playing almost 10 hours I made $10.
I started to win a lot at these tables, so at the third day I was not allowed to play at the tables marked with N. Appeared the following message: "You already don't have the right to play at the ring tables marked with N for new players. You may play our standard ring tables. So, now I continue to play at the standard ring tables.
But what I noticed! I checked my hand history for the past 5 days hand by hand, I played 2000 hands or more every day at the ring tables, so total 10 000 hands for 5 days. I checked all hands which is shown the river.
My conclusion is: Every 30 hand I get the possibility to win. I mean if you reach all the hands untill the river you will win 1 hand per 30 hands. So every 100 hands played I get the possibility to win 3, or maximum 4 times. Mostly AK, AA or high pairs lose like 40%. But if I risk with 5,3 which I did, finally I got four of a kind 5. QK 90% is a losing hand. 55 or 33 - 80% losing hands, A2, A3, A4, A5, A6, A7, A8, A9 - 85% losing hands. The most winning hand is KK.
I also noticed that if I play aggressive with more ALL IN or raise, I get the possibility for more winning hands which the software gives me, but if I play Fold 80% of the hands and finally when I get the monster hand AA for examle I will lose the hand for sure. I also noticed that players who have more money at the tables, they win more, but players with less money, they lose more. I think the software system is created that way when you have $0.50 for example you will be given monster hands you will go ALL IN and you will lose. That is the way to deposit once more. But players who have $10 at the tables, they have more possibilities to win, given them by the software.
Because when I played the ring tables, I always check the hand replayer for every hand and I calculated that one hand per thirty is a winning hand. The other chance to win a lot of the micro limits tables is to bluff a lot, because everyone will fold. That is why I suppose that may be there is some program at the Full Tilt Poker software which calculate all your winnings. When I started with $0.83 and finished with $10, The third day finished with $17, so then appeared the message that I am not allowed to play at the New tables.
Well, these are my impressions and thoughts about the ring tables at Full Tilt Poker. I will be glad to read what do you think about that? Tomorrow I will continue to play again, but I have noticed that when I play at $0.02/$0.05 I am not confident and I lose too fast, but when I play $0.01/$0.02 I win more. My purpose is to reach $100 from the ring tables.

Well Peter you just made a huge post claiming Full Tilt is rigged. I personaly believe what you are saying and if you are 100% sure about it why still play ?? The software can take your money at any point and give it to those big stacks that steal all the cash..

I don't even know where to begin dude you literally have no hope at achieving anything in Poker until you accept how bad you actually are and work to improve instead of trying to state the game is rigged. Playing 5/5/2 and jamming AA,KK,AKs+ pre does not make you a good player or long term winner. It sounds to me like you are one of those guys with a ridiculously tight preflop range who doesn't know how to fold postflop and gives his opponents ridiculous implied odds to stack you.
You seem like a nice guy but just be honest with yourself - the site is not rigged you just aren't making optimal decisions and you are most probably a fish. Nobody is as good as they think they are (myself included) but the Poker world is not short of deluded micro grinders who think they could crush MSNL/HSNL with a roll and don't understand how exploitable they and their opponents are.
'How can I BLUFF if opponent never fold! He call with Jack 5 and hit 2 pair! When I have Aces they all fold! All donkey is lucky! I wish I could play high stakes nobody play bad card!'

Like Macunaas said dont start playing at higher limits yet. You will need to build that bankroll a liitle bit longer before you start advancing levels. That will help you if you have a downswing. If you play in higher levels and you hit one you may end up with no bankroll at no time with the money you have right now.
