I just tracked 120 hands of unlimited texas hold em that were played to a natural conclusion on FullTilt.com. Our table saw 9 straights, 6 flushes, 13 trips, 14 full houses and 1 four of a kind during those hand. everyone's hand that was revieled was counted...not just the winning hands....so a face off between two full houses, counted as two full houses, etc.

It seems strange to me that there were more full houses than trips during this session.

I went to a casino in Columbus, OH recently and played two hours of hand dealt texas hold em. Our table saw no four of a kind, no full houses, one straight, no flushes, no trips, 2 two pair. what a difference in the hand dealt game compared to what is being dealt out online.

Have others experience this, too?

A lot of people, and they won't shut up about it on the chat.

But really, 120 is not a lot of hands at all, and two hours live is probably only about 60-80, and you might have missed something besides; also, people tend to play tighter when they've got the chips in their hand, so it's likely a lot more hands were decided by top pair. I can tell you that playing two hours live with nothing greater than two pair would strike me as unusual, and the online session probably wouldn't live.
The trick to poker is learning not to beat yourself up for your mistakes too much, and certainly not too little, but just the right amount.

That 40 hand live session and 120 hand FTP session is useless as a sample size. You also cannot go search hh's for hands played to showdown live like you can online.

Of the online poker scams that have been caught rigging cards for action is something nobody has ever proved. It is always easily dis-proven.

You're playing play money at Full Tilt, and real money in Columbus. The more people that stay in postflop, the more likely bigger winners will appear. And as others have said, your sample sizes aren't even equal.

Also, you can't track mucked hands at the showdown of live tables as you can do online - giving you a large bias towards bigger hands and bigger showdowns.

You have to ask yourself; How many times have I folded 9,5 suited then then saw a pair of 5s flop or three of your suit flop or 6,7 and 8 flop? Happens to me all of the time in real face to face poker. Online is a completely different game because the "money" is free so you stick with 9,5 suited in the hopes that the flop will fill the gaps.

You can't compare the two games, they are very different.

On Zynga poker I usually open shove any ace, pocket pairs... I'm way ahead preflop but obviously the game is rigged to give KJ the winning hand.
