I used to play online and I guarantee it's rigged. I'm not one to toot my own horn, but I am a very good player. I have finished 1st in numerous large field freerolls and know hot to play all the forms of poker. Day in and out you can see how bigger stacks at the table and in the tournies suckout 80% of the time with crap hands (And playing like an idiot know doubt) because they know how the "RNG" favours them...I myself have found myself flawless in tourneys, hitting everything and sucking out the majority of hands when I get good prices to see turn and river.
I have got 17 hands saved on my comp from the last tourney I played at on full tilt, and there was this one guy who was going all-in preflop EVERY hand. Out of all those hands he got called about 10-12 times and won 9-11 of them!!! Each time with the worst hand, I will gladly upload them for you to view. That is a huge statictical flaw, and I care not to argue my point about the site not being "Random" at all...Because You and I both will not listen, so we'll agree to disagree!
Again if you wish for me to upload the said hands I will!edit on 16-4-2011 by Chipkin9 because: (no reason given)

If they can find a way to cough up a TON of taxes, then good on them, let them continue.
Massive coverage continued over the weekend of the US Department of Justice actions against executives associated with Pokerstars, Full Tilt Poker, Absolute Poker & UB.com (see previous bulletins), with reports in the Los Angeles Times & the Financial Times that Interpol may be called upon to assist in pursuing defendants residing outside the USA. On Friday the Manhattan U.S. Attorney unsealed indictments that include very serious banking offences, naming 11 defendants including Isai Scheinberg & Paul Tate of PokerStars, Raymond Bitar & Nelson Burtnick of Full Tilt Poker, Scott Tom & Brent Beckley (Absolute Poker) & payment processors Ryan Lang, Ira Rubin, Bradley Franzen, Chad Elie & John Campos. The indictment alleges: "As charged, these defendants concocted an elaborate criminal fraud scheme, alternately tricking some U.S. banks & effectively bribing others to assure the continued flow of billions in illegal gambling profits." The indictment seeks $3 billion in money laundering penalties & forfeiture from the defendants, who's companies are all based outside US jurisdiction.
WASHINGTON, DC. (April 20, 2011) – John Pappas, Executive Director of the Poker PlayersAlliance (PPA), the leading poker grassroots advocacy group with more than one million members nationwide, issued the below statement on the agreement between the Department of Justice and online poker operators Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars to give American poker players access to their money in their accounts.
“The poker players have spoken, and it seems the U.S. Government has heard their cries. But players are still in pain. While today’s action allows players on two of the three online poker sites to access their funds, this is just a small victory in the ongoing fight to protect Americans’ rights to play poker online. Even with today’s announcement, millions of Americans are being denied their hobby, avocation and in many cases their livelihood because they remain unable to play poker on the Internet.
“Over the past few days, PPA members sent more than 65,000 emails and letters, and made thousands of phone calls to the DoJ, the Administration and Congress demanding access to the money in their online accounts and condemning the DoJ’s declaration of war on poker.
