Poker Games Online: Is the Fix In?
Ever since the existence of online poker gaming sites, it has been under suspicion that these sites are fixed. There have been these rumors flying around the online poker sites and also the tables from the people who play poker. People playing on the online poker sites have always stated that there is a higher chance of experiencing a bad beat online than the chances in playing the real game of poker (even thought it may be their lack of a grasp on poker basics than anything else).
Well, that is the truth and they are right on one account, but are wrong on other accounts.
There is no proper evidence to prove that the major online poker sites or poker rooms are fixed or rigged. These are all multi-million dollar propositions that are doing fine the way they have been and there is no need for the same to be fixed or rigged in any way whatsoever. This is as true for prepaid card poker sites as it is for all poker sites. If there is any such fixing game going on, there has to be a human mind behind it and not the online poker site and its owners.
The real game of poker has a lot of ups and downs, and the present rigging business has actually affected the charm of this game in major way. When the online poker game is concerned, you are more likely to get a real bad beat in the game than in the regular table poker game at home or in casinos. However, the reason for this is precisely the players involved in the game, and not the bent tables.
The online poker players are quite different from the real table counterparts, and the betting system is different as well. Thus, it gives a totally different feel. There are certain reasons for this as well- the game of poker, when played online, does not feel real. In the quest to earn profits, players usually bet more unnecessarily and they only end up making bad bets. People tend to play almost any hand they want to that worsens the whole game and leads to a bigger bluff. Therefore, it needs to be a wise game played strategically whether you play online or on the table.
