View Full Version : Hypothetical Situation

i reckon there is a very high probability that online poker is not rigged, but i'm curious what you guys think about this:

you are playing your next session at whatever poker site you usually play at, and within the first 1000 hands you play you are dealt AA X times in a row

how large does X have to be for you to think with probability greater than 50% that online poker is rigged?

use your own definition of what exactly rigged means

3 and I'd be looking around suspiciously. 4 and I'd be sure something was going on. Then again, who cares if its rigged? Keep those rockets coming!

Your sample size is too small

Why isn't there a 'sample size' MAN?

i don't get it, are you refering to the 1000 hands?

are you implying that if you got dealt AA 1000 times in a row the next 1000 hand you play you would still believe that poker is not rigged with probability > 50% ?

When I started playing online I did get AA 3 hands in a row on the same table.
