Full Tilt is a horror of a website. They have an extremely unfair deck that is designed to simply steal your money. I have been an iron man for years and I can safely say I'd never deposit a dime there after what I've seen. They are not a legitimate site, they are a SCAM. It is this kind of thing that will bring down internet poker. Pokerstars is not much better but Full Tilt is especially bad. They have also bounced several checks on payouts, check their forums. They have figured out if they bounce your check on your payout and then comp your fee and give you an extra 25 bucks, you will be stupid enough to play it away.
Don't take my word, check their own forum. They make check payouts very difficult. About the 5 of the last times I had AA against KK on Full Tilt, the guy with the kings took down my aces. And that's not even close to the ridiculous runner beats I've seen over and over. I lost over 10 all-ins in a row yesterday when I was at least an 80% favorite pre flop. What are the odds of this? I went from a lifetime 10% ROI player to -4 in a week and I'm playing the best poker in my life, lol. I know what the guy has, I make the right call, and Full Tilt robs me because I haven't made a deposit for a month or two.
I've made several deposits there and soon as you deposit the deck becomes fair until you have a roll, then it will take EVERY PENNY YOU HAVE unless you cash out before the slide starts. It has come to the point where I expect to loose with the best hand. No I'm not a sore loser, I'm warning people against a deck that is not random at all. You ask the question, why would they do that? Simple, they make more money if they steal your money as opposed to pay it out. The game will allow you to have some success but then it will systematically RAPE you until you are stupid enough to deposit.
Anyone who has played there knows about the Full Tilt slide, you cannot get off until you're in the water drowning. Plus, isn't it funny how whenever you get to a final table every hand a filled with big cards and action? If the deal was random this WOULD NOT HAPPEN. I haven't even come close to telling you all I know about this evil website. Last year I looked up every winner of their FTSOP events and none of them had any history to speak of except for winning hundreds of thousands of dollars. Funny? Look up any player in a 45 man tourney on poker rankings and they have a long history, even the winners.
But when the stakes are big, they have around 10 game history. HMMM. Are you fricking serious, how stupid do you think we are? Lol. Listen, Full Tilt will bring down internet poker. Hopefully someone will make them pay for the pain they've caused hard working people who think they are getting a fair game. Listen up, if you want a fair online casino go to an unbiased third party monitor like ecogra and they will have a list of casinos they monitor. I used to play at another site where I made $$$ but they stopped taking US players so I ended up at Full Tilt Poker. BIG MISTAKE.
I'm still searching for a fair site that takes American Players, until then I'm off internet poker. If you must play internet poker, play SOMEWHERE ELSE THAN FULL TILT. They will take every penny you deposit with ridiculous beats. You cannot succeed there, the deck will not let you even when you are the favorite.
Full Tilt Poker is a complete scam site. Winners are predetermined and 99% chance they didn't choose you. I know a lot of people think they are really good poker players, don't we all, and feel like the 'donks' are getting rewarded for poor plays. BUT truth is, you probably have never won on Full Jilt, and neither have they. I have won a tournament on Full Tilt (about $500+) and I was excited to cash in my winnings. Good luck with that. YOU WILL NEVER CASH OUT OF FULL TILT! Get it? Never. Multiple reasons and ways to 'cash' block you.
There is a reason these websites are illegal in the USA and are run from country's outside of political affiliations or ties. It's because they can't prove a payout. Look it up. They only collect your money, and then keep it. You may be an awesome poker player, but you will never, ever, ever beat a software program written to make someone else sickening rich. Laundering your money, or should I say theirs, through a country that you have never heard of. The billing info on your credit card or bank statement is a front man getting his percentage and then poof. Bye Bye Green Backs.
You may think I am cynical, lost a lot of money on Full Tilt (or Absolute Poker, Poker Stars, Players Only, etc... all the same), LOST hand after hand to someone with some insane ALL INS ($1 to $150 tourny's) or am just a conspiracy theory freak... I may even be all of those... But trust me, you will never win AND cash out on any of those sites.
