    Default PokerStars is Robbing You?

    1,360,000 hands. That is how many hands we have tracked on PokerStars.com. We have been monitoring all-in situations at PokerStars.com for the past year and we have come to the conclusion that the games at this site are unfair and biased toward poor play. Read on to see our methodology.
    How we tracked it:
    By using 15 different computers running Pokerstars software and each monitoring five tournament tables at once, we were able to isolate nearly 1.4 million hands where two or more players were all in against each other preflop. These hands were then grouped into three categories: 80/20 (i.e. pair vs. pair), 70/30 (i.e. AK vs. AQ), and 60/40 (i.e. JT vs. 45). We broke these matchups down and analyzed each. After reviewing all hands, we would expect the higher of two pocket pairs to hold up 81% of the time and tie about 0.5%. We would expect a high card hand matching neither of the opponent’s cards to hold up roughly 59% of the time, with about 1.1% ending in a tie. Finally, we would expect dominating hands to win 71% of the time with 1.1% ending in a tie. The margin of error for win percentages is +- 1.7%.

    This is a nonsense article (and really old), any database can be manipulated (i.e, removing certain hands) or just lied about in it's entirety.
    With the amount of employees that have been hired by pokerstars you'd think at least one would come out and admit it's all rigged, but no they haven't. People are bitter about being crap at poker which is why sites and articles like this exist. (or they end up trying push affiliated sites like Paradise Poker at the end of this article)

    Love how "the site is biased towards poor play", yet there's no mention apparent discrimination on whether the player with the weaker hand made the "correct" play by being all-in pre. Sounds like the study was biased and just not accurate with the reality of holdem play.

    I have found this article copied "word-for-word" a number of places (some of them are dated as far back as 2006) such as:

    Iv still got money locked in an account at Pokerstars.. I deposited to have a poker session got excited and then my acount was suspended for KYC... I need to sort this out $200 in the account

    In terms of affiliation id avoid because if this always happens to the players you refer then your not going to make money with them.
