Dear Full Tilt Poker Support:

This kind of thing goes on way too frequently at your site. Please remedy it immediately.

Thank you.

Want some cheese with that whine? How about the world's smallest violin playing for you? I seen this so many times in live poker, unfortunately against me. Take it like a man!

Every time I play a hand that way I end up thinking to myself "That's what you get for slow playing." At least, every time I remember.

Wouldn't have mattered. If I had bet out, he would have either called or raised. All the chips were going in on either the flop or the turn, no matter what.

Always remember: It's impossible to suck out if you don't get your chips in with the worst of it.

fold pre given stacks? how wide do you think he's 3betting you pre-antes? You definitely shouldn't be mining here even if he is a mouth breather.

Hey Grump,

I have this thing that I wonder all the time now.. I know that you say it wouldn't matter how you play it that the net result would be the same, but here is what I wonder. Would your action on any given street change the way the cards would come out? Now..follow me here..this is software right? It's a program? A so-called RNG is used right? if you check vs bet or call vs raise, would that or could that affect (or effect?) the next card? It shouldn't right? It wouldn't in real life right? Ever wonder if it does in an online software poker program. I do... Hmmm..

I have wondered it--and I know the answer, thanks to my pal Shamus. He wrote two posts on this very subject four years ago, and they remain the best source I know of for this specific information. In short, Poker Stars "sets the deck" prior to the hand starting, but all other sites queried re-apply the random number generator to select a card every time one is required--i.e., they reshuffle the remaining cards whenever one is needed, unlike B&M cardrooms.
