      Does this hand just not happen all too often online? I've heard many people whine about this kind of thing, but you can have no action for hours, then all of a sudden it seems AA is pit against KK and the rake just goes boom when all the chips fly in the middle! the chances of these two hands being dealt to 2 people in the same hand must be quite high, yet, it seems to happen all too often!

      thoughts?

      I don't think so. Nothing unusual. This stuff happens.

      few days ago I was with QQ against KK and AA and guess what only high card came on flop? ;)

      A won with set against 2 unimproved overpairs :D

      these things happens and you heard about them because these situations are easy to remember for everyone...

      Yeah well, I remember winning with AK vs AA :D . We were both all-in preflop and when I saw my win percentage - about 10% I didn't wanted to look at that table and diverted my attention elsewhere. But after a while I heard that sound when you grab a pot and I realized that on the flop there was one king and another one came on the river :D Well I guess that guy wasn't so happy :)

      At a 10-person table, the probability is 4.41% or 23:1, the reason it seems to happen a lot is the fact that we play a lot of hands online, it's much quicker then BM casinos, so we see it happen often. In one session, in less then 20 minutes, I held KK and lost to AA twice, to same opponent. That week I lost 5 times that way. It seemed every time I held KK, and raised preflop, only 2 things would happen, no callers, or a re-raiser holding AA.

      In fact, for some unknown reason, in 5 weeks, I have lost 90% of what Ks have earned over the last 4 months. AA vs KK became a normal thing, I no longer re-raise with KK and go on the defense until I see that Ks are generating any profits. They recommend to cap the betting with As and Ks as they generate
      the most income. But, not all of us seem to have that magic touch, the black cloud that to followed me all my life has followed me into my poker career. LOL!!!!

      Why KK is losing so often, and losing large pots only started once I climbed a limit and got worse once I move up another limit. According to PT, Pocket 4s has generated 4 times more profit then KK?? That confuses the heck out of me.

      I've won against short stack with 56s vs AA, the flop was 66J
      Keep trying those lo cards, I play 2000 hands a day and these type of players generate the most profit as they miss the flop 66% of the time. In tournament play, makes sense, but why give away your money on a hope and prayer??? There will 1000s more hands to be played.

      Anyhow, thought I'd place my 2 cents.

      People just need to accept the fact bad beats happen all the time.
      whether they come all at once or if they are spread out.
      It's called variance.
      It can and WILL happen to every single poker player.

      Would you complain if you got dealt KK vs AA, 100 hands in a row and you won 90 times out of 100 with your KK.
      Of course not.

      But just because you have won 90 times out of 100 you will loss in the long run eventually when you have KK and villain has AA.

      The computer doesn't choose who losses or wins.
      Online poker is 100% random unless someone is cheating somehow which is almost impossible if not impossible.

      There are 2 choices you can make.....

      Quit or Play better and make +EV decision.

      Yeah it does seem to happen a lot but obviously because most people play a shitload of hands. I find every time I have either AA or KK everyone folds preflop, even when I'm BB everyone folds even the SB :( Awesome, picked up 15c. It is always a good feeling cracking the rockets though...
