It's quite a common thing on FT... if you ever multi-table MTTs or SnG's this happens alot. Most of the time its the same whole cards at both tables. But common flops on different tables that were dealt out at similar times. It's odd and hard to understand/believe 100% with the theory of the constant shuffling of the deck online.
Just use the knowledge to your advantage. It's sick because the deck is constantly shuffling. So the time it takes you to decide what action you're going to take you could have hit some outs if you had called 20ms earlier, but instead you hesitated 20ms and your opponent hits their flush on the river.
I like the idea of a set deck than a deck thats constantly shuffling, but for security reasons online, this cannot be done.
ON A SIDE NOTE: I have never seen it happen on Matrix tourneys on FT
