Did anyone else notice an abnormal amount of quads on this site?

      I find it pretty crazy. The chance to make quads when you hold a pocket pair is about 0.86% but I'm making on average 2 quads per day, I don't know how many played hands that is but in the range of 1500-4000, and not just with pockets, even with one card.

      I've also seen two guys from my community commenting about how often they get quads and one of them even made a screenshot with all of them. The problem is that I don't feel lucky at all, since I see them at everyone and occasionally lost some big pots, once with AA with three K's down because opponent had K3.

      On the other sites I've played quads weren't common at all. I barely made several in 200k hands so I'm normally not counting this possibility, however given recent history maybe I should ?(

      I must say i find this HIGHLY suspicius.
      taking into account you have OBVIUSLY done your math, and come to a verry suspicius conclusion, something must be done.... those were 1500 to 4k hands right.... ????

      let's make a bet.

      1) if you come with concrete,solid proof,hand history,HEM screenshots of every player that played on cash game tables where you played,that is,they played against you,in those 4k hands and each and every one of them had quads two times in that hand sample span,i will give you 250 dollars and i will self-ban from this forum.

      2) if you come with the same evidence,for every player that played during the period that you played,that is
      everyone
      ,that had quads 2 times i will give you 1000 dollars and will quit poker.

      3) if you accept the bet and you do not fulfill the conditions of 1) and 2) you must give me 125 dollars for not completing 1) and 250 dollars for not completing 2)

      those are 2:1 and 4:1 odds you are getting there ;)

      Do you really think all the hands go to showdown?

      I just asked if anyone else noticed this or it's just me, but now fuck you bunch of retards!

      fuck you bunch of retards!


      So you make an accusation that rng of 888 poker is somehow inclined to give people "abnormal amount of quads", then guys ask you if you have any proof even for so insignificant sample as 1,5k to 4k hands, and when you fail to give any you insult all of them :s_o:

      Pokerstrategy is it all just about money? (yes i know it is) Why you just dont ban guys like this one ?(

      Im sure you will gain more credibility and eventually more profits (you may start with temp ban as an warning) :s_cool:

      Everyone who posted here, except #2, should be banned for off-topic and trolling. I don't see the point of all the "facepalm" gifs and pics in my thread, no matter how silly the topic seems to you. If you have nothing to say don't spam this thread, maybe others have experienced similar stuff. I bet some of the posters don't even play there.

      Folks, lets just calm down please.

      @ BadeaCelRau: You will be aware that any thread containing accusation of lack of randomness in card distribution will inevitably be met with scepticism. Whilst a facepalm gif isn't the most eloquent expression of this, I don't think it qualifies as unacceptable trolling.

      The posts that use irony but are requesting proof also aren't the most positive method of responding to your OP, I think they're reasonable and at the gentle ribbing end of the trolling spectrum. They're certainly on topic, Please take them with a grain of salt, and try responding to the substance in them.

      Any thread that makes these accusations imposes some responsibility on the part of the OP to offer some reasonable form of substantiation. Decent sample sizes and HH/db analysis should be the bare minimum of information required. Having said this, any personal insults or straight out flames are out of order and are completely unnecessary. Please consider this when replying to the comments to date.

      RNG randomness, or lack thereof, is something that concerns everyone and if you have compelling statistical evidence that supports it then perhaps try providing that information to make your original assertions more compelling.

      Finally, can you ALL please keep further comments respectful. Telling people to perform physically difficult acts upon themselves doesn't add much to this particular thread tbh. Any further insults or general flaming will see this thread locked.

      I got quads 3 times in my afternoon session today of about 1000 hands. That was on pokerstars though. They must be rigging it to keep up with 888
