I hate to admit, but I have been getting burned badly on cash games. I will be forced to push all-in pre-flop with aces and somebody will catch a set of 3's. My last fiasco was as follows: I was dealt pocket kings. I raise a modest $5 on a .50 - $1 table. Someone goes over me $12 and someone else tops out the bid at $30. I went ahead and call the $30. The flop is King-Heart-Heart. My gut tells me to either push or check. I go ahead and push all-in. The $30 pre-flop bid folds, but the $12 raise calls my all-in instantly. My stack was around $150 making my all-in a legit bet. The person that calls shows his cards and he has Jack-Jack(Hearts). I am thinking this is great and all but register a victory. Low and behold the turn is a heart and the river is a heart giving the idiot a flush for the win. If I didn't know better I think I was playing against someone that could see the cards all the way through. What possessed this person to make the call in the first place? Needless to say I will no longer play cash games on that site. Too many bad beats and alot of calling large bets with the person holding nothing in their hands. Has anyone else experienced these patterns? Has anyone heard of sites cheating their players? Just sick of it right now. I normally make cashes and I guess this is just the doldrums, but I think I have hit my level of patience.
It's just one hand, put it down to shit happens, KK is a great hand, but as you know it's not a guaranteed win, you got it in ahead and lost on the river, that will happen to you again and again and again the longer you play.

One thing I have noticed is that I seem to run into people that likely have deeper pockets than me. Also I have sensed from time to time, that if someone has been playing higher stakes (happened to me and other players that I know, as a player moves down in stakes (because of a dwindling bankroll, they often play more recklessly.
You may have also quite simply, run into a drunk.
It is very difficult, actually impossible in Poker to Not run into these types of players.
