Welcome to everyone who found the site. Whether you believe its random or you believe its not. Here is some evidence on the site. Based on e-mail from readers I have gotten I will attempt to make this a better all around poker site. Sure beats will still be discussed but maybe we can get some blog reader tourneys going or have blog readers invite others and share there own tourney wins and losses via blogs. Just send me an e-mail I will attempt to create a network of poker blogs.

Thank God Full Tilt Is Shut Down

There is a post sure to grab attention. Simply put, I was angry at first, people messing with our freedom to do what we want. Then it hit me. This is a good thing provided it doesnt last forever. Two possible outcomes here. Full Tilt loses the battle, gets sued for enough money that they cant continue to operate and the owners of this unrandom website get put in jail for 5 - 25 years. Good. Screw them. We move back to love games, that used to happen every weekend and sometime weeknights, play with live people and learn to deal real cards again.

This really doesnt sound like a horrible thing if you ask me. I miss the live games. The face to face interaction. The ability to read someone else based on movements you can actually see.

The second possible outcome is after a few weeks they work out an agreement with the US government. The government will want to be able to regulate, tax, and audit the site. This is not a bad thing at all. They will have to prove to the government that the website is fair and random. Again this is not a bad thing. People know that something is not right now, which is why they have found this blog. If FT has to prove the random and fairness more than once a year and possible be subject to random audits, this is progress, and I think its exactly what is needed. They also need some form of customer service as it is non existent right now. You can e-mail them and maybe they will or maybe they wont reply.

Again, to be 100% honest, I see no negativity in this government shutdown. Either internet poker dies and we have to play home games again (which i wish would come back) or FT has to report to our federal government to continue to operate. One way or another a positive change will come.

To Craig LaMonte

Since you have decided to post please explain what this comments means:

"Ok...you were AGAIN behind from the jump. MY GOD."

Are you saying that I should lose a hand because I was behind before a flop? If so, you are clearly showing that you dont understand poker. In fact, you are showing that you dont understand odds at all. Apparently you go all in preflop every hand I dont. If I go up against an opponent hold AK and I have A5 I am assuming that your comment means that I am behind from the start......the jump??

But I wouldnt push that all in. So if the flop comes out A53 I am clearly by far a favorite to win the hand now. A beat coming at this point is a bad beat. Maybe this is the jump you are talking about. On a side note, you sound like a retard using this statement....but back to the example. At this point I can only lose this hand by a 3 outer coming in which case a K hits the turn or river, OR the board runs a higher pair.

If an A hits I have a boat, if a 5 hits I have a boat, if a 3 hits I have a higher two pair and still win. So maybe I am missing your statement. The guy had 3 outs and a total of two chances to hit it or 6 chances total out of a full deck. You are trying to say that I should have lost??

Your a moron and I would love to play your home game, in fact I would take a side bet that I would finish higher than you any day of the week because you clearly dont even understand odds, much less the game of poker. "Jump" on that.

Holy Crap.......I can see this happening once maybe every 50 million hands

If this is random I will literally punch myself in the face.......

Lets keep it going

Please note these are not all ins. These are all ins after the flop in which I should win these hands. It is nearly if not completely impossible to see these 3 outers or less continue many many times a day.

So I quit yesterday after that bad beat and then today first tourney second hand

Dream flop exactly what I want. All in. Called. He has more or less two aces tops he can hit and one person had already folded who called the raise. So I am figuring he has one out. I see the Queen on the turn and then........yup the amazing river pause.

Lets talk about that for a second shall we. Why if cards fall randomly does the river pause need to occur? There is no reason for this to happen. The cards should fall at the same speed as both the flop and the turn which is pretty much instant. Why is there a hesitation on the river? Obviously something is going on. The computer is "thinking" what card to show next. Why does it need to do this? It doesnt make much sense and just proves more and more that the game is not random at all. It is completely controlled by the FT servers. This person was given the win over me.

So to finish the hand. I knew either A) One of the two, probably only one aces was going to come off or B) one of the 2 queens was going to come off. This is the ONLY way I lose this hand. After the pause the Q comes. Lets not even talk about the odds of running QQ to win the hand and the board showing 3 queens. He has a maximum of 4 outs. This is a hand rarely seen. Yet I have posted hands that occured to me almost back to back from yesterday to today with only 2 hands in between playing time. Amazing? Nope, unrandom and fixed.
