Rigged Poker Sites - What is the Truth?

They bang away at the keyboard declaring 'this site is rigged' in the chatbox as they are busted out. All too often, you have witnessed it or heard of it, a powerful hand gets rivered by a less inferior hand or a horrible caller gets away with rivering the best hand.

Is that just poker? or, is there some truth to the claim that online poker sites are rigged? Well, to answer that question, we must first take a look at how the online poker sites 'deal' cards and make determinations of the shuffle.

The most common usage of a Random Number Generator is well-known in the gaming industry as the choice to shuffle and deal cards to players at the table. Although, many claim they are able to break the RNG and predict the coming cards, not only is this ridiculous in theory, it is nearly impossible since most online poker sites use advanced technology to seed the RNG that is beyond any capacity of a casual programmer to break.

However, are the poker sites rigged for action and bad beats, and is it possible for the 'code' to be cracked? The answer to both of คาสิโน those questions is a resounding YES! The sites are rigged in a manner of speaking and it is easily possible to crack the code of how the software works in order to gain a competitive edge on the other players at your table.

First, in addition to the RNG, there are multiple subroutines used in the online poker site to determine winning hands and inducing action. It is not the RNG that is important in discovering what is really going on behind-the-scenes, because it is the additional subroutines, algorithms and programs that really determine the winning hands.

Second, anyone who knows what to look for in these additional subroutines, will easily be able to crack the code and produce more winning hands and bigger pots. Although some may claim this is cheating, in reality, it is no different than counting cards in blackjack. Counting cards is not cheating, it just gives you an additional (and unfair advantage according to casino's) in winning at blackjack.

Nevertheless, cracking the code is possible and the ability of one to 'see' what is going on behind the software program is nothing more than an advantage against the other players at the table. Online poker sites do not want people to learn about their software, because they must maintain that their software is fair to all players.

However, when you are the constant recipient of bad beats when you have the best hand, that hardly seems fair! Since the online poker sites are not going to change the way their software works (and delivers bad beats repeatedly), It is to your advantage as an online poker player to learn how the software works and how you can adjust your game to win against the programs.

Are online poker sites rigged? Yes, they are, however it is not rigged to make you lose anymore than it is rigged to make you win. The secret resides in you knowing the program and how to manipulate it to your advantage.
