      Is there my observation only that in pokerstars platform you can either run like god or you can either run like shit.THere is no medium size run.The reason i mention this is because i runned like shit in the beginning and being very frustrated but now i run like god and it is very frustrating also.I keep pushing A5s from sb always bb calls with better hands and i always win.I played in ft also but the things there were way more normal.Is it only me that i have these thoughts?Btw its not a rigged online poker thread.I dont believe online poker is rigged

      It is very likely you could play differently at different poker rooms. Something subtle... like psychologically. It's probably 90% sure.

      Although I made a threads not too long ago about me thinking it's rigged. But it might even have been like the 2nd day in poker for me.

      Why to be frustrated of running hot? You will have those bad runs as well... When you shove that A5s you know that play itself is profitable(without deeper stacks) and one reason why it is profitable is that you will suck out once in a while when better hand calls :)

      In the end when you say this: "Is there my observation only that in pokerstars platform you can either run like god or you can either run like shit.THere is no medium size run." You will practically suspect that site is rigged. As how there could be only bad or godly runs, if probabilities would work normally? Because if such runs could be observed in big enough sample and constant quality of play/opponents then site would be rigged, right?

      I am happy of every suck out I can perform, if I can still see play itself profitable :f_biggrin:

      Because when you run so good you must expect that you will run too bad in the future
