I have seen this a few times, anyone else? I get say, A8s and the very next hand I get the very same cards. The odds have to be pretty high to have that happen I would think. Oh well, just an observation.

I've noticed on a couple sites that quite often the cards I had a hand or two ago ends up in someone elses pocket across the table. And even more common is the call bb to see the flop and the flop is boat material of the two cards one card off of what I have. Probrably just my luck though.

Recently I had a run of AJ on four out of five hands. Not the same suits but still very strange.

Last night I was multi-tabling. I got 77 three hands in a row on one table. I also got 77 on another table at the same time. Then about 2-3 minutes later I got it again. I wish it was AA I was getting in waves.
It was extremely odd. I can't remember hitting a set with any of them either .

There are only 52 unique cards in a deck. Online, you can play tens of thousands of hands over the course of a week or two. What would be weirder is if repeat cards/flops/whatever your mind finds interesting enough to actually notice didn't happen.

re: Poker & repeat cards
when playing several tables at the same time i often get identical pocket cards. if they're good hands usually one wins but never both. i've been lucky or unlucky enough to get AA a couple of times in a row. boy that's dangerous.

Obviously it is completely random, but like in my real time games I sometimes base the strength of my hand (pre-flop) on what happened last hand. I.E - If I saw trip 8's and I pick up an 8 I feel that there is a good chance of it popping up.
Now, in real time this works because a lot of the players I play with are quite possibly the most inept shufflers/dealers in the world, but online there is absolutely no justification for using it. But still I do.
