If online poker is rigged, why do you continue to play?
I was a tad surprised to find a post from poker professional and noted poker author Lou Krieger titled “Who is the dumber son of a bitch” this morning but it really is a funny read. It sums up the insanity of those who claim online poker is rigged.
Of course, Mr. Krieger puts it far better than I ever could:
I finally typed this in the chat box: “There are only two possibilities here: that this site is rigged or it’s not. If it’s on the up-and-up, each of us will obtain results that reflect our playing ability in the long run . If it is rigged, we won’t. Because I believe this is an honest site, I’m going to continue to play here. But if you believe it’s rigged why do you continue to play here?
He never responded. So I finally said, “I guess I’ll leave it up to the other players in the room and I’m asking for a show of hands: One of us plays every day in a game he believes is stacked against him and is a losing player. The other plays in an honest game and is a long-term winner. Who is the dumber son of a bitch?”
