Goodbye to Full Tilt Poker

Last nite was the straw that broke the camels back for me and Full Tilt Poker. I transferred the last $21.41 I had there to Snake with a dont send it back to me.

Poker was not enjoyable there and it was making the entire game not fun for me and making me doubt myself. I was afraid to play my game because the eventual suckout would occur. When I opened up and got rolling as usual, I was rewarded with being kicked to the curb. I was dealt the same hand two times in a row 3 times last nite. I saw quads twice in the span of 20 hands (not me).

Why reload on a negative EV site for yourself. Its the only site Ive lost money on consistently. Ill play on Absolute/UB, Bodog, Bugsys, and Stars where I still have funds and reload on stars.

Ill buy something cheap with the FPPs I have and then uninstall the site and close the account.

Ill still be blogging but I wont be playing in any of the weekly blogger tourneys. my live leagues are starting and twice weekly tourneys at the club on Thursdays and Sundays should get my live jones in and Ill play online the other nites on the other sites.

Are you saying the Full Tilt is rigged against you, or there is something about that site that keeps you from playing well?

It really looks like you are blaming the site for your losses, but you seem too reasonable a person to really believe the deck is stacked against you there.

I'm sad to hear all this IG. Though I would love to say it hasn't been happening to me lately as well on full tilt, but I can't, at least not at the nlh tables.

You can stll play in the Monkey Tourney on Stars - Tuesday's 8:30 (it's the Wheaton replacement). It's small, but still a good group of fun players. Okay, there's some serious donkeys, but it's still a fun tournament.

And you're not the only one getting nailed with rifonkulous beats on Tilt these days. I'm VERY tempted to start playing the hands that I know are behind and see if I get a chance to suckout.

I am sorry to hear that you are leaving Full Tilt. I look forward to hearing about your live leagues, hope you do well with those!

Good Luck IG, hope I'll still talk to you girly chat occasionally.

Poker is full of bad beats. It's taken me some time to realize this but the more you play the more you see, whether you are in the hand or not.

Online poker sucks balls anyway. Nice that you have an outlet to play live.
