Title:Recreational Player problem1 out of 1 readers found this review helpful
Im sure most players especially the better, regs and strong winning players have noticed an overwhelming problem of recreational players on both Pokerstars and the winning poker network. This was discussed a while back and I thought Id bring it to peoples attention to see others views.

Pretty confidently sure this all started with Pokerstars introducing sports figures into the game because it has been going on around since way back then , and then the random idiot factor just breeds more and more of the same kind.

The discussion is DONK BETTING, 2x Blind vs Blind Opening, VPIP players 40+. number 1) These players or some at least. there could be bots as well who knows because theres plenty of the BS happening amoungst a lot of players and I mean lots. These people are playing a system that is somewhat beatable but only to the extent of x amount of rake taken off players, Ive done a lot of stats on HM2 , calling these 2x BvB Situations, 3b the pot, cbetting and delay cbetting, according to opponents stats comparing ones own. The ranges that are getting called down, folding instantly when you are strong, Reraising all in to Donk flop / bet raises. Hand % hitting boards flatting good hands and 3betting flop eg. KJs / QJs / A10s to 2x raises from small blinds, my stats show over a big sample that the defending player is missing the boards way too often, the donkey fish is making hands that if you as a player played any of those hands 100 times you still would not see the light of day of making hands even close to these players.

And yet this is highly suspicious because these are the players that you find in a casino and they get absolutely crushed, they will get lucky for 1.2.3 hands but generally they loose exceptionally fast. So how is it that these players are surviving too long, know when you weak, know exactly how the boards going to pan out if they call a 3b. Call turn and river with overs to the board or paired flops and brick brick, running cards for straights and they casually chasing nothing, I tell you theres something wrong in both Pokerstars and Winning Poker network, its perhaps going on else where but these 2 sites or networks is the worst I have ever seen in my entire poker life and we talking years. I can beat regs no problem and have the edge in the ring of ranges and stats and can just play well against them in general, but thats not the point. When you are playing recreational players, you know years ago fish could not tell the difference of made hands and chasing draws, calling Q-A high on rivers. Now recreational players are playing some system which is actually causing players to induce action of small bet sizing, donk betting in 3b pots 10% of the pot wtf! Or Min betting. These porns are killing online poker, never mind the sites anymore. Its all come down to the recreatinal tards sitting on your table.

LASTLY, WHEN THE BOARD IN A 3 BET POT RUNS OUT AKQJ10 RAINBOW BOARD. 2-4 players, and they shove........ You know what!

Title:Whats happened to online poker really?1 out of 1 readers found this review helpful
I really dont know whats happened but in the past few years its just got really bad, I started my bankroll in 2010 i think with a no deposit bonus, actually there was so many sites that i used for this, Ipoker like Titan,winner,Bwin, William Hill, 888, and theres a lot of others , built my bankroll steadily then these Nodeposit companies decided to stop doing that.

Then for some reason My country got left in the dark and I cannot play at 888,party, all UK gibralter sites like ipoker skins, Bwin,Party,888, Microgaming anymore.

Im left with Amayastars,unibet, Iron Poker, and thats practically it and Europebet, Stars is just plain terrible and dont respect there players, Unibet has got software issues and a revamped VIP system which is 10x worse than before, Iron poker is Ipoker skin but its the new revamped software which is completely terrible with drained traffic,bad hand replayer, bad traffic, bad support and Europebet is the almost the same software as stars but their traffic is great, have rakeback, and its really one of the really fun sites out there with fast reliable software.

Then the Brexit finalised last month, So Britain wants nothing to do with Europe, the most retard move in financial history. Anyway Amaya which is Isle of man licenced uses a Isle of Man pound 1/1 to the British pound, So everyone around the world must now support these junkies but they deliberately want to be a sole country and wants nothing else to do with Europe or the rest of the world.

Then the Sheldon Alderson what ever his name is story which he paid 100 million dollars to politicians to keep players from certain countries from playing and to operate. That was the most disgusting story I ever read about, casinomeister revealed all this information on his website. And like casinomeister said, that money could have gone to charity,homeless people, etc, but instead selfishly it was aimed towards operators and players. Disgusting man!

The whole industry which used to be flexible is just an outright joke now, Skrill for eg Ive had problems with for ages and they dont even respect their customers. Neteller is limited on some sites now and some sites you cannot even use neteller, and the same applies for Ecopayz.

Well youve read a abit and can tell Ive been playing for a really long time but not in the poker boom era but still, Its fair that I have my say and express the changes and Im sure it has impacted a lot of countries around the world.
