Full Tilt Poker a Ponzi Scheme
 
After playing thousands of hands at PokerStars and FullTilt, I eventually realized their software was rigged. Turns out the sketchiness doesn't stop there...

Luckily I got out with some profits. Unfortunately the $100 I still have sitting there is likely gone forever. And it was earmarked for a Warpath donation!! ;)

Ouch, sorry man. If it makes you feel any better I wasted a little over 20 bucks trying out one of those penny auction sites, I think it was Beezid.com (I actually posted a thread about it somewhere on here). There's one in the news now because not all of them are legit, a lot of people are complaining about not receiving products, etc. The internet has its' shady corners.

One of my friends' mom was addicted to the online poker sites, I'm sure she's devastated by this. It sucks but you gotta be careful what you get into on the web.

LOL...it's the internet....a series of tubes no one knows where it may lead. If you want to play poker just go to your local casino, if you don't have one then go to vegas couple of times a year. Pretty simple.

People are too trusting of internet ventures.

Don't have any proof, just experience playing tons of hands and tournaments. It's not cheating per se, more like a player handicapping system. I still made profits and Pokerstars did pay me promptly.
