    Just needed to vent

    Playing 1/2 Omaha 8/OB @ at Pokerstars. I'm up about $110 in a half-hour. Im in the BB w/ a very poor hand of 2 4 6 8 rainbow. 3 players call to me, I check. Flop comes 6 6 2, and I flop the nuts. I check. Button raises 5 dollars. I know he must have a six and w/ 2 cards to come I want to push him out of the flop, so I raise 20. He raises all in (about 110 total) so I call. He has a six and catches an Ace on the river to win the almost 200 dollar pot.

      I hate online poker. When that nut buster comes on the river, I want to see it leave the dealers hand. Something about playing online is too fake for me.

        Well obviously the biggest negative about online poker is that you don't get to see your opponents and can't read them.

          Online poker is very valuable if you can read betting pattern tells. In this scenario, my future made a good read and knew the guy had the case 6. Still, his call was correct because the guy might have had a 2 and then 9 outs to beat him. His implied odds were very solid here, and I would have made the same play. Of course, I also hate Omaha because of the swings like that...

            I hate A-K, I never win with it, Anna Kournikova, looks good but never wins. Suited is even worse, its gotten to the point that I pretty much fold it if anyone bets a reasonable ammount.

              Folding A-K is not a solid EV play. It is the best drawing hand in hold 'em. Of course, to play it right you have to get a little lucky and make good reads. Playing A-K online is incredibly tricky. I have stopped playing online because of the idiot bad beats (bad programming + bad players), plus the fact that I have solid hand-reading skills and tell-reading skills that are eliminated by the electronics. I also tend to play way too much.

                Just read all your stories. Moral of the story...play cash games. I have no dreams of seeing my face on ESPN, I just want enough money so I'll never have to get a real job.

                Playing poker online is more stressful than brain surgery. I agree with what you said about it.

                Didn't you end up going to see GW? I saw they took it. Then got blown out in the big one, but at least they made it.

                  Well I'm not the best at poker, but me and a few friends get together and play poker at my place about every other week.

                  I don't really know what this added to the conversation but hey, whatever.

                    I'm going to a casino for my 21st B-Day and play in a few cash games. Don;t know what casino yet. Probably somewhere close to home. I can't wait.

                        Reigle, my friends played cash games and hit it big. For me, I'm just a better tournament player. I was supposed to get a bonus at work, but they delayed it until the end of the month, so my bankroll was really low. I really only had $200 to spend on poker. I wasn't about to put myself in a position to lose my entire bankroll on Day 1, so I did the tournaments and played well. Of course, if I had played as well at the cash tables as I did playing tournaments, I would have made out like gangbusters...

                          I just mean that I have a hard time trusting online poker. No need to state the obvious. It just seems like the cards fall off in perfect sequence in order to promote the biggest pots (and rakes) possible. Not always, but I did notice that there was an extraordinary number of such occurrences. People who play a ton of poker get a feel for how often certain things are going to happen, and they expect it. Online, it seems like strange things happen every other hand. Odds don't seem true. I'm sure there are legitimate sites to play at, but I never found them. I want to see the dealer in front of my face. Not some card showing up on my screen from who knows where.

                          • I agree with your concerns, duck. It is a big concern of mine, as well. When I first joined Fulltilt, it seemed like the programming was very randomized. Cards came out randomly, and there weren't a ton of big hands. As time went by, it seemed like they skewed the cards a bit to give one person first nuts and another second nuts on every hand. There were a lot of outdraws and crazy river cards to catch runner runner crap. When I could play the best odds possible and get my money in with the best hand every time and still lose $20, I said it was time to stop. I'd rather play for real than deal with this other stuff.

                            • bsaza,
                              I forgot to mention this in my first post. I don't know how it works at other casino's, but if your friends played a cash game for more than four hours at The Trop, they'll get the poker rate for rooms that really cuts it down from normal rates. That is assuming one of them had a Trop Poker Club card and got them scanned.

                              Or you don't mind the timeshare thing lol........then by all means. It's actually a really good idea if you'd have to pay for your own room.
