just for fun I want to share a hand that I was dealt in on bodog , talk about the odds of this happening , AA KK QQ JJ all dealt in one hand in a $2 sng , didn't get the hh or a freakin screenshot , I would kill for a screenshot but at the time just chalked it off as "bodogged" , anyways I had the QQ and won with a Q on the flop. no one would gain anything by it being rigged , so no thoughts of that , but thats when the thoughts of that dang RNG started . what can you say huh , play it or leave it.
You see these "cold deck" specials on PS from time to time as well. You know, 5-6 players at a full tavle get pps on the same hand. People always mutter about what are the odds, etc, but to me the point is this. Whatever the odds may be-1k to1, million to 1, whatever you choose, the point is, as many hands as Pokerstars deals, all day every day, that one in whatever comes around pretty often. Doesn't mean it's rigged, it just means there's lots more opportunities for "random" anomalies to occur.
I was playing a SNG this morning. In the space of 75 hands, I was dealt pocket jacks 5 times! Odds? Who cares! What was even more remarkable to me, they held up every time! Being one of my least favorite hands to play, I always try to bump them big time, so I don't have much action to hold up against, but still...... And finally, got busted out of it like this: called a small raise with pocket treys, flop came down 4s-6c=3s. GIN. Original raiser pushes allin, and turns up......pocket jacks. Then hit runner spades to suckout on me!
