Pokerhost Rigged to generate rake...probably

For those of you who dont think thers any chance that some poker sites are rigged to generate more rake, heres something to think about:

Playing on Pokerhost today in a ring game with 8 other people, the winner of three pots in a row (3 different people, one being me) had 7777, 9999 (on the flop, thats right, four of a kind on the flop), and a K high straight flush. Three hands before this, someone had 2222.

How many real hands of poker do you think you'd have to play to get quads or better 4 hands out of 6?

For the record, I dont think many sites are rigged, but i'd put money on Pokerhost being one that does.

(i forgot to mention that in at least 3 of these 4 hands, other players caught either a straight, a flush, or a full house...enticing them to put more money into the pot)

In the limit ring games on UB a few weeks ago I saw quads 5 times in a little over an hour. Still play on UB a lot and haven't seen it since. I think it's just a case of so many hands being dealt that you notice it more. We tend not to remember the 46 times we get dealt 8-4 offsuit in an hour...

I would agree with you but this is too out of the ordinary. I've probably played 100,000 hands of poker online over the last few years, and I know all about playing more hands causing more bad beats to appear, but this is different. Would you use the same argument to justify 10 royal flushes in a row? Where do you draw the line and realize that it might not be luck that is causing extra profit for some sites?

Multiple pp's is not uncommon to a live game. I was in a tourney at the Trop in AC and I had 99. Guy in front of me went all in, guy next to him called. I went all in. Lady behind me went all in, guy next to me folded. Lady had KK, I had 99, first guy had 55, guy next to me said he had 10 10. Flop had a 5 and the set of 5's raked a 13000 pot.

But the 4 quads/straight flushes in 6 hands is a bit too extreme.
