"Yes, I do have aces"
Nice to be on the good side of this situation. Too bad that other guy's hand disconnected. Or maybe not... The party poker chat comes up stupid, so I'll fill in the blanks...

You gotta love the old disconnect trick.....not. It is especially transparent on Stars because you can see your opponent has a 100% internet connection but then suddenly are "disconnected" when they have had their decent hand raised. Then they come back like nothing happened. Some players try to outsmart you by waiting for awhile before coming back, but of course return with, guessed it, a 100% connection.

Shouldn't installing and paying for a quality internet service be a part of online poker? Why make a provision like the all-in factor for disconnects when it so obviously is taken advantage of?

Pokerroom is good, they only allow AI protection in limit

I thought there was No DC-AI protection at all pokerstars NL tables as well.
Its totally mental to allow any kind of DC protection in NL.
I know if i was getting outplayed i would probably use a free opertunity to see my opponents hand and get a chance to showdown. It makes sense, to use it this way and for those reasons shouldn't be allowed at any NL table.
