poker room and the AA

Postby eftda » Sat Mar 11, 2006 5:59 pm

Im not one to brag about my poker skills but I seem to get AA, 2-3 times a day when I only play at most 4 hours. I don't always win but 75% of the time I do. Is this normal to get this many AA?

The odds being delt pocket aces are 220:1 (0.45%)

So no, it's not normal, unless you're playing a ridiculous number of hands.

BB's right. The odds of picking up A/A is 220:1, so it depends on how many hands you're playing. At 4 hours per day, roughly 60 hands per hour (online average hands per hour), that's 240 hands, so you should get them once on average per day (provided you're only playing one table at a time).

I'm not a fan of Pokerroom. I played there, got my bonus, got paid to play there, and took the profits and ran. I've never, ever thought any of the large online poker rooms tamper with the shuffle, but I saw way too many things at Pokerroom that left me shaking my head. Probably just a strange run I had there, but I'll stick to some of the other sites.

I've had interesting experiences with Pokerroom too, which is a shame because they have one of the nicest online interfaces I've come across.

I hate Pokerroom...but I play there all the time


I have made some money on there, but it really seems like the longshots get paid off more than the odds dictate. 2/9 calling an All In and catching...not a 2/9 bluffing and being caught, but calling one. Seriously.
That said, I did catch a Royal Flush earlier tonight in a tourney :-)

That does seem a bit much. I played in a live poker tournament last Friday and I only got AA once. Of course the one time I did and got two people to go all in (I was way down at the time), the guy who was dealing picked up the flop instead of his hand by mistake, so we couldn't play the hand. :-[

I did come way back though and ended up in 4th place out of around 50. It was for charity, but I ended up with a $50 Best Buy gift card. ;-D

I quit playing online poker because of pokerroom. I kept losing by strictly playing the odds. That site had some of the craziest ish I have ever come across.

I was just talking to a friend last night who makes good money at poker and plays a lot online as well and he told me with my skill level (we've played some live games before) I could make a decent side income for a college student. He basically guaranteed if I play right and all that stuff that I will make a profit at it.

Anways, long story short, he is giving me a list of books to read and my goal is to read them and get back at it online and try to earn a couple hundred bucks a month to use as drinking money.

What sites are the best?

Well I have personaly tried a great deal of poker rooms (I move from one site to another getting thier offers.)

Right now I am playing at Pitbull Poker.com, they are offering $10 free just for signing up. NO DEPOSIT REQUIRED.

Also if you play money on top of the free $10 they are giving 200% up to $200. So if you deposit 100 they will give you 210 on top of that, but again they will give you 10 just for signing up.

[MOD EDIT: LINK REMOVED--we don't allow referrals like this, but feel free to put a non-referral link in this thread.]

This will get you your 10.

This is the promo I am doing right now. There are a couple more with nice promos but this is the best this month.

Not bad for putting $100 in. What is their deal about cashing out with that money? How many raked hands do you need to play?
