I'd have to agree with the rhetoric that Sportsbook.com is a scam. I was out of funds, and threatened the live chat people that I was going to leave to a different site unless they gave me a bonus or something, so the agent finally said that I could have a $33 coupon for a tourney. The first thing i said when I bought into this tourney was "Ok, I know I am just wasting my time here, because I'm playing with a tournament coupon issued to me by sportsbook, i know they are just going to make me lose". This i typed in capital letters so that everyone on the table could see. I proceeded to have the MOST amazing luck, and ended up getting 3rd place, winning $600.
I was pretty happy with this, and decided to keep playing, which was the biggest mistake I could have ever made. I played 100max Omaha, and 6, no exagerration 6 times I had my money allin on the flop or turn with the nuts, and my opponent down to a 3 outer, and EVERY SINGLE TIME they hit. That $600 disapeered in a matter of 1 hour. I am a very good poker player, and typically do very well, but these situations that I was put in, EVERYBODY ON THE PLANET would have pushed allin as well....for example, I had KKQJ and the board came K22. I bet and was raised on the flop, and i three bet, and the other player pushed allin with A2, turn card was A, river was A. Another example, i had 8910J, the flop came 678, I bet and was raised, I reraised and again the other guy pushed allin with 8910Q, turn was a blank, and river was a J.
I'm NOT a conspiracy theorist, and completely understand that there is variance in a game like Omaha...but never in my life have I suffered such ridculous beats time after time after time. SPORTSBOOK.COM IS A SCAM, NEVER EVER PLAY THERE OR ON ANY OF THE MERGE NETWORK SITES.
