PSO Censorship?

By: Jcrondps @ 11:23 (EST) / 100 / Comment ( 0 )

I posted a bad beat in the bad beat forum earlier today that (apparently) brought into question the randomness of the hands dealt at PokerStars. I didn't imply anywhere in the post that PokerStars deal wasn't fair but apparently I violated some T&C of PSO because my post was quickly deleted.

I was then looking over some of my other posts and came across a 2 year old post containing some statistics. Grade B was the last person to post in this thread and he provided me with a scenario to which I never responded. I took the time to respond today. The post consisted of correct math of flipping heads on a fair coin 100 times in a row (nothing else). For some reason this post was deleted.

I'm really not sure what's going on around here but math is a big part of poker and we don't seem to be allowed to post statistical anomalies in the forum for fear that fairness of the all-mighty PokerStars might be questioned. They've threatened to take away my posting privileges for 12 months if I make another such post so I guess it's all Santa Clause and Tooth Faerie posts from here on.

Here is hand from the post that was deleted:
