      All I know is that I made my first deposit on PS some weeks ago and busted. Made a second deposit yesterday and it's still going bad. This is my last deposit on online poker most probably, the sad thing is that I live in Norway where poker is banned except from the net.. No casinos etc. so I'm going to try to find someone to play with but finding someone that plays that you don't know that well might be dangerous too. You never know if they're to be trusted or not.

      Also, if those reviews are true, shouldn't PS be protecting me? I've busted on both high and low suited cards/sets/house etc. even when I'm +EV on the turn.. Either the game is rigged or I'm a bad player.. I know I aint a great player, average at best maybe.. But as I said; PS should be protecting me... :p

      Or maybe it's just variance. How many hands have you played on Stars?

      This, IMO take the reviews here with a pinch of salt. Consistent winning players/regs will be too busy playing/winning to make reviews. Leaving the whole review one sided.

      stars is hard because people do not call down light here. if they do they tend to bluff big on the river making you fold your TP type hands

      and against regs your never looked up by them with weak holdings.

      and most of the time people will suck out on you on the river. all these things will add up and give you a small winrate which will be profitable for you if you play tons of volume. for the average recreational player this is hard to do and will most likely be a big winner in the short run but a losing player in the long run.

      if you can't put in the volume your better off playing on a much softer site

      No offence but only idiots think that pokerstars is serious poker.If you played live poker and then come to ps you will seriously laugh your ass off.People have tolerated that bullshit site for long enough but now they are leaving it, moving to smaller sites.Variance my ass.On the site where you lose 70 % of time being favourite to win the hand without overestimation, we are not talking about variance but about pure obvious rig.Like look at the scoop tournament final table videos-Isildur1 or whatever is that donk called has won 2 final tables 3 betting with rag rag hands-flopping/turning nuts 70 % of time.The system is beatable by certain strategies(mostly consisting of dumb play) but these have nothing to do with real poker.Facebook poker has better card gen than this.

      everyone thinks it's rigged when they lose but say shit when they win. it's much nicer to say it's rigged than admit to yourself that you aren't as good as you think. best thing to do is to admit it, then click here because there is always room for improvement. but at the end of the day everyone knows online poker is rigged.

      Opposite for me.
      I say, "shit" when I lose, but if I win, I KNOW it's gotta be rigged. :D
