The online poker sites would have you believe that their software is fair for all players. In fact many of the online poker sites are required to submit their software for rigorous testing to prove it is a fair game for all players. However, is the software really fair? On the other hand, is there something going on in the background that many people never realize?
Many victims of bad beats will scream “this site is rigged” while others will counter that the suck outs and bad beats are all a part of poker and it happens even in live games. While that is true, it still begs the question as to whether there is more to the online poker game than meets the eye.
In a recent study conducted by a popular poker forum, the question, “Are Online Poker Sites Rigged?” was posed and the results were nearly split with 42% saying yes and 58% saying no. However, opinions by players really have no bearing on the truth as to whether there is something amiss in the software.
Attention to the fact that there are flaws in the software used to produce ‘random’ cards has always been responses to the many complaints of constant bad beats and suck outs. The fact that a computer program is determining the outcome using a RNG (Random Number Generator), does not imply the game is fair or random.
A RNG is merely a program that will “shuffle” the 52-card deck and appear to deal that deck in what may seem to be a random manner. However, because the RNG has limitations on capacity and ability to be truly random, additional software algorithms and subroutines are added into the online poker software to further insinuate a fair game.
It is those additional programs and algorithms that is the true culprit in creating an environment where bad beats and suck outs will occur more frequently. A popular poker site once claimed that the reason one may see so many bad beats online is that more hands are dealt. This limp explanation is neither credible nor even close to reality.
A typical live tourney will see an average of 38 hands dealt per hour, while an online tourney will have 52 hands dealt per hour. That in itself, is not a significant difference to warrant the overwhelming amount of bad beats that occur. The fact is, you could sit through thousands of live hands and not see the amount of remarkable bad beats that will occur online.
There is, of course, an explanation for the overwhelming amount of bad beats; the explanation is simple. Online panen138 sites use a series of computer generated programs to execute the poker hands. Those programs are highly susceptible to computer viruses and online pressure. Once these two factors are present, the likelihood of a computer program becoming flawed is relatively high.
mittedly, many of the sites are well aware of the problems posed by online poker and many of them are working to correct the problems. However, the fact remains that the enormous majority of the problems occur because of the online poker software determined to be fair is manipulated by the selfish act of playing players.
Many players will coddle in the hopes of making a fast buck and sacrifice quality for quick wins. The increasing number of bad beats and suck outs in online poker is the result of the constant massive bad beats and suck outs in online poker games. The solution to the problem of constant bad beats and suck outs is to learn how the software works and use that knowledge to your advantage.
