      hi guys,just finished off the last of my bankroll in classic style. i call an all in from the small blind with 88,he had 7-3. by my reckoning of online odds i was 60% to win.779 on the flop i just started laughing. anyway my last hand was even better.i went all in with kQ and was called by J7.i know i must hit the flop to have any chance and sure enough K56 appearred.i reckoned i was about up to 65% to win.turn 8 river 9.remember LUCK is everything at lower stakes.ive lost 550dollars in last 4 weeks playing 5dollar sng because no matter how far ahead i was when the money went in i couldnt get a hand to stand up.let no one fool you about strategy and variance at lower limits it is pure and simple luck.best of luck to you all i am going to find a better use for my money.

      i went all in with kQ and was called by J7.i know i must hit the flop to have any chance and sure enough K56 appearred.i reckoned i was about up to 65% to win


      I have a strange feeling about this odds... They seem odd to me :f_o:

      the percentages i quoted are based on online play.
      in a casino 88 versus 73 must be about 89%.
      online odds are different as you should know. :f_p: :f_p:

      As they're based on the same deck, what changes?

      Holy crap! Sorry mate, was forgetting this!

      Need to think also of the russians, just everywhere in online poker rooms.

      You can turn odds in your favour by correctly timing RNG!

      For example if you SNAP call with FD your chances of getting there on next street increases by ~6,35%!

      its pretty obvious the programs favour donkeys.was playing a freeze-out to-day and the guy beside raised 5bb preflop. one caller. flop J62 and pre flop raiser pushes all in. he is called and when the cards are shown pfr has AJ caller has K9. absolutely nothing. 10 on the turn and obviously Q on the river. the rest of the players started chatting about how often this happens online when one guy offered an explaination,if the donkey who called played in a casino he would lose every night and soon give up.same rule applies online.if the software does not step in he will lose every night and then try another site or give up completely. i know if i owned the site i wouldnt want all these players to realise how bad they are.

      I would like to see that source code for program which gives bad beats and which everyone is convinced it must be operating.

      Because to program random generator of 52 cards is pretty simple. But to let win worse hands ( but not every time , just very often) and let win bad players so they don't go away and still enable good players to profit so they don't leave as well.. this must be one hell of good algorithm :D
