Its a game of skill and luck when playing live.
Online is a whole different ballgame.
There are bad beats and then there are programed bad beats, which is what happens at poker sites, it is programed so that no one person can have a
wining streak as per say, the program sees you win a big hand and then it will give you a good hand , say 3 8s or some such and gives the other player
3 9s etc. So unless you are aware that its the other players turn to win a big hand you will put in a ton of chips on that said hand. The program
goes against you until most of the other players have won back some chips unless you were able to bluff them and win a hand that you were not supposed
I used to play alot a few years ago , I tested this by playing every hand for 10 to 20 hands after I won a big pot no matter what cards I got. Very
rarely I would win any hands after that and I would get lots of hands that were good hands but would always come in second.
How can anyone seriously say that a programed computer game cant be or is not programed to keep as many players playing as possible, and the only way
to do that is too even out the playing field.....
