Card cheats in home games?

Postby pokkagreentea » Sat May 14, 2011 10:06 am

Last orbit of a home game 2 days ago i visited,i was not in the hand.

UTG - 500 BB deep
MP+1 - 450 BB deep
BB - 200 BB

the rest of us were mostly shorthanded or break even.

UTG straddles 2BB
folds over to mp+1 raise to 4.50
folds over to BB calls
UTG min raises to 9
mp+1 min raises to 18
BB raises to 40
UTG calls
mp+1 announces all in
BB snap calls
UTG then hollywoods and sighs,then calls.

BB flips over AKs
UTG flips over AA
Mp+1 flips over KK

Flop , [3d] [As] [3s]

BB was a huge fish,mp was decent reg and i mentioned deep stack and UTG was shark and was dealer and host's friend.

What got me thinking this hand was rigged cause the premium hands were dealt to the deep stack and fish of the table and it was the last orbit.

the rest were all <100BB and struggling waiting to go home. Also to mention,UTG was dealer and hosts friend which made it even more suspicious .

What do you all think?

i think if you think its a cheat , then dun go their place to play
sometimes coolers like this happen and it happens all the time.
did you see if they took the deck off the table and replaced it ? aka cold deck.
are they card mechanics ? aka dealing from other parts of the deck.

play wise , i think BB can play the hand better by folding preflop... its only AKs

UTG on the other hand , is an idiot for slow rolling with the nuts preflop

come on, it happened all the time. :). This is poker.

Online poker is alot more than this, v high variance.

Just play right and make good decision, you will be fine. yeah play wise.

OP is more concerned about whether there is card stacking involved in this self-deal game, rather than how the hands should be played.

To prevent stuffs like this, you can always ask to cut the deck before the dealer deals the cards in a self-deal game. Using 2 decks to play to speed up the game is fine, but always enforce cutting the deck and it'll be way harder to cheat.
