I'm never ashamed because the only time I play them is in the BB with no raises or in the SB when it is just the BB and I left. And if I call and he raises I fold. Don't get me wrong I've bluffed with these hands in late position when the time feels right and think about playing them after four or five flops of nothing but high cards but I resist that urge. I too watch the hands and think well if I had called I would have won with a str8 or flush or whatever, but something tells
me that what you see isn't always what you would have had. Not exactly sure how the dealing works online. Are the cards dealt to the players and the board already in place at the start of a hand like in a real game or is there some sort of random shuffle thing that takes place during the hand? That seems a little strange to even mention that. Not going down the poker is rigged trail but thought I read in CC sometime ago how the timing of the play is involved. Perhaps it was one of those that claimed rigged. Btw that is just my opinion. Everyone has their own style of play and sometimes a favorite hand that even though all logic says fold they play it anyway. Changing it up can be a good thing because you're right you won't always be dealt AA,AK. If you feel dirty after winning with these cards Stick with what makes you comfortable,but remember position is everything.
