Title:Not real poker14 out of 14 readers found this review helpful
So I played live for 2 3 years. Always was wary of online given as many players i know live who are solid always say its a crapshoot.

Forget the RNG at first, none of the sit n gos or Mtts offered actually have anything remotely resembling a live poker game. Stack size of 1500 are useless as you pretty much end up with 1/3rd of your stack in if you decide to play a hand all the way.

Now the quality of players is atrocious, so this should be great, it should be like shooting fish in a barrel. However its not, it is impossible as you are obviously kept from winning. If a fish calls you twice, they lucked out every single time. E.g. hand I played, I have KK, flop 25K, I bet, called, turn 6, I make a bet which is 75% of his stack, he flats, river is 8. SO KK v XX ob board of 25K68. What does the fish have? 222? K6? K8? I go all in and go home as fish has 97. I literally could not explain how he was even in the hand given I raised pre, post and on turn. This is a very common occurence. You'll take most hand 3 or 4 ways, donks will limp then call any raise. This should of course be extremely profitable for the good player, but why would 888 offer a system where in their most profitable fish (who'll deposit every single time they play) get busted and quit.

I played for 2 days on here and saw enough, I only lost $20 thank god as I though I would test the site with a small deposit first.

My results

15 $1 sit n gos, 40 seaters, I lost 14 of these going out 30th or higher, every single one was a hand like: AK raises 3X, 4 callers, AK4 board, 6 turn, I bet again, 4 callers??????, I'm all in, fold, fold, long think from fish (dunno why, he clearly didnt), Call with 410 off suit, river is a 4. or: every play limps, I am on bb with 12 bigs and 99, just go all in as anything less will result in at least 5 way pot. one player ALWAYS calls. ALWAYS limp call an all in, literally the weakest play in poker. 99 V J7. Then the board comes 9 10 8. I go out again and obviously it was set up for me to get it all in on the flop anyway.

Remember they need weak players to splash the cash, play lots of games and generate rake.

Online poker is not poker, it is not shuffled by hand and dealt randomly. Every single hand is predetermined to maximise rake.

Could all these people shouting rigtards please post

Curiously, none of them can produce that, the pros also never seem to play online? And 888 also seems to be unable to attract actual pro poker players. (who you note will advertise for site, but curiously they don't play there???). You are literally just gambling against a house and your skill will not help you here as greed will not allow you to chase of the weak regularly depositing fish and thats bad for 888.

Remember theres online one real type of poker, live shuffled by hand and random. Online every site is fixed and you will never win.

Title:Honey Tea - My Final 888 poker review5 out of 5 readers found this review helpful
Hello Me Mates

My country has officially been banned from 888 poker, and some coincidence I closed my account 2 weeks before this ban came into play which was last beginning of last month.
I have 2 popular voted posts about 888 poker about titles "Skrill Moneybookers" and "GOLD status Player".

I am just really surprised within a short space of time how 888 poker is actually been bombarded on a regular basis with negative reviews. 888 poker must really be going downhill. I have noticed just on observations without logging in that the traffic has steeply dropped and like I said reviews are just bad bad bad. Then 888 poker pulled out there sponsorship deal with Saurez because of a biting incident. Its a funny thing really because Suarez bit that Chelsea player not so recently, so what made this world cup incident so special? Now all of a sudden Suarez moves to Barcelona, that is like having Messi, Ronaldo, Van Persie, or any major recognised sports player on the cover of your site which is good promo for recreational players.

Its just seems 888 poker management and promo teams are making countless bad decisions one after the other and its bringing down their poker world. People were saying two or three years ago 888 poker was going to plummet somewhere along the line and this is most probably the right time for 888 poker to drop. They have lost a major ambassador, S.Warne was the first, and now theres an epic fail on the second. 888 is also known for its sportsbook and casino - I really do not think hardly anybody made money on the sports side of life and most likely lost a few quidlickin dollars, and the casino - well the casino will just kill the players anyway but it just adds more losses to players. I am sure a few countries besides mine have been banned from 888 poker so the company overall can not be doing well at all.

My take on all these latest reviews is that 888 is going through a panic station, yes some sites are not 100% perfect and all, but 888 poker has a couple of illegal business ways of doing things. The chat is not really friendly and I cannot actually recalling feeling one bit comfortable in a chat room on 888 poker. my email replies took donkeys ages and sometimes I waited up to 2 weeks for a reply. 2 weeks! Thats crazy! The only time 888 gets off their Arse is when it comes to the ching ching deposit factor. Other than that 888 poker service is outright appauling!

If you read my previous titled posts, I spoke about the currency exchange fraud issue and time delays of withdrawals. Overall peeps, if you have read all my posts, you have to agree there are a lot of illegal business tricks happening at 888 poker. People thought iPoker network was up to no good illegal things, well I think 888 poker puts all sorts of toppings on the cake.

Lastly Fish, there will be fish on any online poker site. Thats 888 pokers selling point - Fishys.Unfortunately I see 888 poker as the king of all sucker online poker sites out there. Adios
