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.

Variance and the online poker myth

I have read quite a few articles lately and even received an email reply back from Americas Cardroom when I bubbled in a tourney holding quad Kings that Variance is the reason for the bad beats. Variance is the go to answer for those people that claim that online poker is not rigged. They say "your just angry because you go a bad beat" or "if you cant handle the beats then dont play poker". The thing is the "variance" they mention doesnt stop. If this were true "variance" then eventually you would run into good variance and win every coin flip and every dominated hand you play.

However, we all know this is not happening. So I got curious the past few months and got a tracker. I can confirm now that all the major online poker sites are clearly and completed rigged for American players. All the players that talk a big game online and act like they make so much money and claim "its not rigged you cant handle the beats". Well, I put those players in pokertracker to see if they have actually made money.

I did not find one player who was actually positive.

Let me type that one more time so it sinks in.....NOT ONE PLAYER HAD MADE A PROFIT.

So I started putting more and more names in, no one has made money. People type in the chat that they take 2-300 bucks off a month. Yeah, well when you lose 4-500 bucks a month just because you take the money off doesnt mean you make money. This is the hard truth, it really is.

Where is our money going? If no one is making money, and we all seem to be losing money, then where is all our money?

The only thing I can figure is that it is all going to the house players and back to the house. This is the only logical answer. If you have any other opinions as to where our money is going please let me know.

As always here are some beats that I love:

Aces vs 89 all in preflop. Yes PREFLOP. Guy called an 89. Why would someone do that? I saved this hand as it marks exactly seven times in a row that pocket aces have lost on this site all in preflop. I wonder how long this streak can continue?

This next beat is on the bubble practically. Two people from the money. This is the hand I sent to the site to see what there response is. I actually typed in the chat box that the guy had an underpair and would hit his one or two outer. I typed this at least 45 seconds before the cards were dealt as another player let his time bank run down. If this is truly random then how can I state when I will lose and what cards will be dealt? Someone please tell me this? Its because its not random. Its all programmed and no matter how you play you will lose.
By the way the hand below and the hand above occurred within about 3 hands of each other. Making the odds even more improbable that this happens randomly.
