Default Lol, what are the odds of this?

Yesterday, I'm playing $1-$2 NL on stars and get dealt AA and flop comes A55. Villain of course had pocket 5's. Wheeeee. Today I'm in the cutoff with JJ, two limpers in front of me and and raise 7x BB. and both call. Flop is J 55. Bet 1/2 pot and both call. Turn puts 3rd spade on the board. All 3 of us check. River is 2c, first player checks, 2nd player makes 3/4 pot bet, and I raise AI. First player folds, 2nd player calls and shows 55. How ironic. I couldn't stop laughing for 10 minutes. Moral of the story, if you flop the big full just check and fold.

This one time I had a good hand and the other player had a better hand. It was pretty sick.

Aren't you the same guy who posted about set over set happening to you too much?

I call BS on that, the odd are at least 1 in 100 which clearly makes it statiscally impossible.

Say no more, brother, I feel your pain. Just try to realize that although they rig the games so that the fish last longer, a good player can still eat. And remember to always overbet the turn because the river will get you.

I saw three sets of quad tens yesterday playing live poker.

This led me to conclude that clearly, live poker is rigged.
