    Is pokerstars reliable?
    I have found myself MANY times lately winning one hand until the river comes and the other person wins (all in done in the turn)
    It's like I put 10€ in my account play against people that have a draw that always comes true, I bet on my draws and they don't become a winning hand.

    It absolutely is.. the more hands you get, the more the numbers go straight to where the averages say they will. I have hundreds of thousands of hands on both PS and other sites (can't currently play on PS since I'm in the US)… the numbers go right to where they say they should.

    Anything can happen in the short-term, plus normally our memory only remembers the ones that go against us. Another thing that can be playing into it is that if you misplay hands (especially slowplaying), you can turn the best hand into one that expects to lose chips... and longterm, you will do so if that's the case.

      Yes it is. The older members of this site can tell you that we have had that conversation on here many times. This is why the number 2 rule of poker is to play within your bankroll, because the one outer is a 2% chance which means on average will happen once every 50 hands.
