Discussion : Is PokerStars rigged

Postby Stevejobs » Sat May 03, 2014 3:10 pm

Hi All,

I would like to collect come opinion on whether pokerstars is rigged.

I personally think that it is rigged. Below are two main reasons

1) Looking at leaderboards on Sharkscope , top 20 leaders are mostly from different countries.
2) Some leaders have ridiculous ROIs. And maybe ( unverified) ridiculous ev.

My feeling is that pokerstars would like to create profitable players in each region/country to "promote" and create an "idol" to increase the number of players playing the game.

But in real fact that just rig against these players ( all but the winning regs that they want to idolise )

Do you think this is possible ?

Just want to collect opinions.

Regards,

Hello all, I can concur that I am running extremely good, at least 15k over expected value over a sample of 25k games on my HUD. But I have made over 60k in ev with my actual profits at about 75k. Would like to hear other opinions as I feel OP's theory could make sense

They would want everyone to stay onboard so they could collect rake from them.

The more people the better .

As a result , it is in their best interest to create a fair environment
