Title:Why is online poker reduced to Bingo?7 out of 7 readers found this review helpful
 


There was a time when poker used to be fair online. It gave birth to players like Tom Dwan, Patrick Anotnius etc.
However near about the poker Black Friday, things started changing drastically. A number of problems started cropping up for the poker rooms.

The pros were able to crush the recreational players easily, poker had become a game of chess where skilled players would decimate the lower skill players, the implication would be that less skilled players will quit, just like no one plays a chess grand master betting real money.
Solution: Increase the chance element in online poker, make the recreation players win and give them hot streaks that eliminates poker as a skill and makes it a gamble, this is easy to do via computers and by big data analysis and analysis of players it is easy to tag them, and make the recreational players win more than their fare share and the pros lose more than their fare share.
There is heavy outflow of cash from the online poker rooms by the pros. Problem, the pros would consistently take out cash from the poker rooms, and the fish or recreational players would not deposit any money. With no players the poker rooms would not generate any rake and then the poker rooms would lose major business. Solution:The solution to this problem was done so that there would be games all time around, delay cashouts, reduce poker to bingo, introduce tilt in the game so people will keep on depositing, this raises rake and thus benefit of the poker rooms.
Falling Revenues of poker rooms. Most players learn that online poker is rigged and then quit playing and there are fewer and fewer games. Solution: To combat this the poker rooms would use bots which are intelligent and favored, earlier the favoring techniques which were used for new players, the same favoring would be done for these bots and these bots would start clearing millions of dollars annually. This ensured the fair share of the parties that the owners of the poker rooms would have. It would add to their bottom line.
The list is endless. write to me to know moreā€¦

Title:Serious doubts over the worlds biggest site1 out of 1 readers found this review helpful
 
So i Just get off a session, Losing 20 stacks at 10NL in Zoom, I have every reason to suspect there are superusers on the site because the plays that were made were perfect against me, the bet sizing , and the predictive patterns of players check calling range vs board textures which made 0 sense, donk betting abnormal situations . To tell you the truth, theres serious flaws and sh-- going on here, I haven't played here since the change to Amaya and is the first time I experienced this level of poker which is dreadful . I have never ever in 11 years got stacked 20 times in a row, coolers and not holding in flips to some players who are 3b calling off 44-77 vs AK to 70bb stacks. I mean really, I have the hand history to prove it.

Stay away from "aMaya Stars" , this is not pokerstars and never will be again.
