I AGREE THAT ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS, I HAVE FELT THAT PLAYERS WERE CHEATING. I DON'T CARE WHAT PLAYERS SAY, GS IS WORSE ABOUT THE DISTRIBUTION OF CARDS. WE GOT BAD HANDS IN YAHOO BUT IT SEEMED THAT THE CARDS WERE NOT SO LOPPY, SO OFTEN. IT SEEMS THAT AFTER 1ST HAND OR TWO, YOU KNOW THAT YOU HAVE GOT A LOPPY GAME.
MY BIGGEST CONCERN IS, WHEN YOU SEE THAT A PLAYER HAD EXTRA CARDS OR YOU PLAY 5 ACES. THIS PROGRAM HAS HAD PLENTY OF TIME TO GET THE BUGS WORKED OUT. THE PROGRAMMERS DON'T KNOW HOW TO PLAY OR PROGRAM THE PINO GAMES. IF THERE WAS A WAY THAT THE DEALER COULD "SHUFFLE" THE CARDS, IT MIGHT ALLOW LESS SLOPPY GAMES.
I'M SURE HOWEVER THAT WE HAVE CHEATERS, WE HAD THEM IN YAHOO. WHY WOULD THEY QUIT BEING DISHONEST?
