sometimes it appears to be rigged, but a lot of the times its plain luck, ever had days when no matter what u were dealt you hit nothing, and other days when you just hit with any old crappy hands. the best option is dont go on tilt, give poker a miss and wait till you feel luckier. Good luck and Bad luck sometimes goes around.

I don't believe poker rooms controls who will win or lose i've won a freeroll wich i used to be a shortstack becoming the chip leader in 20 minutes so, they didn't kick me off when i used to be the shortstack player pushing low cards

BE CAREFUL, poker rooms are a world conspiration AAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaah, nooooooooooooooooooooo
or maybe that poker rooms dont care who wins, and just be happy when they get rake?
or maybe that its a SHORT STACK PLAYERS world conspiration : O MY GOD, no. How to survive to this? just keep eliminate them (if you win 85% of the time vs a shortstack, well raise them everytime, its like you have AA huh).

Anyone who thinks that online poker is rigged should not be playing online. You are setting yourself up for disaster. Bad beats are poker, they happen. No one would have anything to gain from rigging the tournaments, it is simply a game of chance when the money goes in preflop, which is really why you should avoid doing it unless it is absolutely neccessary. If you want to play bingo, then go play it. This is a game of people played with cards. It is so much easier to take the fish's money if you simply outplay them on the flop, turn and river. They will call, and call way too much. This is the easiest way to take their money. However, with all of the World Series hype and WPT hype, they usually only show the great bluffs and "All in Moments" which creates the excitement about being all in for your tournament life. It creates the thrill of poker. Really what everyone should be more worried about is making money off of this. If you want a thrill, cash out your bankroll after running it up to 10K+, theres a thrill.
