Complaints about poker being fake

If you like real poker prominence poker is not for you. They have it sat up with boosts and bonuses they have it rigged so flushes and full houses are bad bets. You even get points for making bad bets they title it bad bets flush or bad bets straight. This is the kind of poker people get shot for playing in The olden days. Its considered cheating. I uninstalled mine. When u cant go all in on a flush because some other person got the same thing its ridiculous. And how about them people that make outrageous bids. They should be forced to show their cards.

You gotta know when to fold 'em in this game. Sometimes when u have a low flush its not worth it. I do feel like they need to stop allowing people to spam all in.

Online poker has always been bad with the algorithm on cards. I once mapped out 10,000 hands in a data base on poker stars and one of the worst stats was, hands that were all in pre-flop that had a 70% chance or better to win lost 64% of the time. The math with online poker does not work. Which looks worse in fake money poker because these guys don’t seem to care and push all in with 7-4 off suit against your pocket higher pair and flop full houses or four card flushes repeatedly.

I have so many 1-2 card outs hit against me on the river which normally only has close to a 2-4% chance of happening and it happens about 20%, if not more, of the time.

I also wonder sometimes about certain players. I have seen so many players never even look at there cards and just bet/raise everything and hit whatever they need constantly. I sometimes wonder, bots?

Its because of this, my online play style is so different from when I play live games at the nearby casino.

Or maybe kids … Hahaha i have had to deal with what i asume are kids a lot going all in a 7 2 unsuited preflop sitting after two people bet… Im like okay … Lol

But im still learning… Maybe thats the only way to play that shit. Hehehee

The math in Prominence is absolutely correct.

Extremely loose online play is responsible for producing the results that casino players consider unusual.

What prevents casino players from playing very loose like some online players do? What would happen if someone came to a casino game and played like these online players? How can we replicate that in Prominence?

Changing the ‘algorithm’ is not an option. It’s an unbiased evenly distributed random shuffle every hand. Changing it would mean rigging the deck to make it SEEM more like what some people expect.

Mayor, don’t change anything!
The challenge of this game is the diversity of the players and the differences found in the levels of play.
A ring game with a buy-in of 250k, is not played the same as a 10k game. Ranked games will change as the season progresses, ie. bronze tourneys at the start of the month attract a different style of play than platinum games during the final week of the month.
If players want to play a more serious game, they have the option of forming a group and playing a private game.
Saturday night games are different than Monday morning games. A morning game on the west coast of the US may include a night-owl from Eastern Europe.
thanks for a great game!

Mayor,

I guarantee you the math is not correct. I am no pro mainly because I cant read people very well, though high functioning I am a part of the spectrum, so all I have is the math and I have all these numbers and stats in my head but I guess I could start making spreadsheets again.
I average playing about 20 hrs a week in the casino and 10-12 hrs online so about the same number of hands because online your not waiting for cards to shuffle etc,. and I do understand the difference between players who throw play chips around and real money but a 2 card out on the river, which is only about a 4.2% chance should not hit 20% of the time either way.

You are correct! Anything written for a computer is not reality! I programmed mainframe computers for 30 years.
Please remember that every player at the table is receiving cards from the sane deck, so stop blaming the cards dealt.
Games written to be played on computers are there to provide entertainment. Period!
See you at the tables
