It amazes me how Replay is blamed for almost all and any losses while winnings is the wisdom of the player and the player alone
Here’s a hand I folded pre-flop. That turned out to be a mistake. I doubt it will show my cards (I did fold them, after all); they were 4d-10c. So, I had crappy cards out of position and saved the chips that would’ve been wasted. Duh.
Hate it when that happens, but a choice was made.
But was replay the reason Alan¼main folded? I say YES after seeing him play! He normally won’t fold that big of a gapped, off suited, out of position, perfectly playable couple of cards, so it has to be replays fault. Hugs, I couldn’t resist!!!
I pretty much blame all my wins and all my losses on stupid luck and Replay.
Yeah! Me too!
I love that @Cryman is calling out the cry babies. Great post! +1 Cheers!
@Alan25main started a thread highlighting a review of Replay Poker by Online Poker America. It’s a great read and I would suggest it to anyone who questions Replays RNG or fairness. The thread Alan started is “An Online review of Replay Poker”.
From the article… “Replay Poker has a valid official GeoTrust certificate (at the time of writing) and RNG certificate which is immeasurably important for earning player trust as there are many online poker rooms out there—both play money and real—that operate under the guise of a regulated casino but do not have the documents to support it or have it rigged heavily against the player. Having been through so many hoops and hurdles to make sure the site is up to the highest industry standard, Replay Poker really deserves a commendable stamp from us for the effort they take to ensure players are playing from a reliable site where security is of minimal concern.”
I am not sure exactly how to take from another article and make sure it is properly credited. @SunPowerGuru, could you let me know if there is anything wrong with doing it this way and if so how I should be doing properly. Please and thank you. Cheers everyone!
I’m not a lawyer, so don’t take what I say as any sort of legal advice, but I don’t see anything wrong with quoting an article as long as you credit the source. I would have provided a link to the actual article, either like this…
SOURCE: Replay Poker Review
Link-backs like that help boost the article’s search index ranking, which could lead to more people seeing the review. Since it’s a positive review, this would help Replay too.
“Fair use” of another’s work product is a grey area of publishing. Generally, if the quoted material is “properly attributed,” “brief,” and “limited,” it’s considered fair use with or without a link. In this case, it’s about a 1000 word plus images review that I quoted (and credited to Online Poker America) about 80 words of. I DID include a link to the original article so our readers can go to the original material and read all of it (or as much as they’re interested in). I specifically called attention to their FAQs in their review because some of those FAQs specifically address things like “Is On-line Poker fair?” Keep in mind this is from an INDEPENDENT reviewer, not someone with a financial interest to protect.
@Alan25main, I hadn’t seen your post when I replied, and I wasn’t being critical of you. I was asked my opinion about quoting, so I replied with my opinion. Both of you credited the source, so i don’t see a problem. You included a link, which is the way i would have done it.
I think you are right when you said there is a fair use exception that makes quoting like that legal, but as I said, I’m not a lawyer.
When I lose, I lose for the following reasons:
- I lose an all-in that is statistically in my favor, for example villain hits a flush draw.
- I am tricked by a wily villain.
- A blind steal goes wrong and I am beaten by a better hand.
- A bluff is called, often when the villain does not have the odds in his favor.
- I make some gross error or a bluff that has no chance of not being called.
When I win it is pure skill, as in this hand:
LOL. Exactly that.
I took a look at that hand.Yep have to agree. Pure Skill man pure skill.
Teach me how to post links in this manner please.
My original intent was to supply a link to your thread but I could not figure out how to do that. This is why I ended up giving the title to your thread and taking that quote from the article.
Thanks for the reply @Alan25main Cheers!
Thanks @SunPowerGuru appreciate your input, as always.
