Everybody loves to play poker with friends or in casino with real people in front of you, but when we can't do that we play online! I always think that software will cheat. And in some situations turns out so. I know everybody lies, but math never. I'm writing this
post and I must press "I'm not a robot" , but online we all play with one big robot who controls to give or to take!?
One week on Full Flush I watched my hole cards change from pocket Aces to 2-3 off suit (second time to 4-6 off suit) right as I bet. Then the game froze, returned my bets and sat me out. So now I only play the free tourneys and use the cash I win there to pay for my cash games with never a hope of getting enough to cash out.

Online poker isn't rigged, it is a LOT tougher than live that is for sure. Any random live player just automatically assumes it's rigged. Have there been scandals in poker? Yes of course, but that being said, there are scandals in EVERY aspect of life and not just in poker. As for cheating that can happen live too.
Trips that sounds like either software issue or maybe your computer isn't up to speed.
