I was playing a Sit&Go on Everst Poker today. Everything runs fine , best Hands , hit everything. Come to Heads-Up and be the massive Chipleader !!!!!!!! But then.............
The Program crashes down and caped my line to Everst ! A newstart uses ~ 5 minutes to come back to the Program and only 1 BigBlind was back for me I go all-in and the Program again crashes down ! So i couldnt see how i loose !
( the good news: it was a 1$ 6-man-S&G and i had a ticket for it ! ) Won: ~ 2 $ I hope this will not come back when i Play a 100$ S&G

I almost had that happen to me the other day too! Heads up at the end of a turbo 20 person SNG, crushing the other guy when I flop a flush draw. I shoved and then... software froze and when it came back 30 seconds later I saw that my bet went in before it froze, he called and I hit my flush on the river for the win.

This is the worst thing that can happen when playing online and it has happened to everyone several times if you have played poker long enough. My worst nightmare is for this to happen when i get around to playing a big tournament
That happened to me countless times and it was my connection who let me down but it's ok as you'll get back to actions in a matter of seconds... it's sick only when you're playing a super turbo one, it really hurt but sometimes I played players who had it and I was the happy one...

It is bound to happen sooner or later even if you have a real good PC, there might be a break in connection losing money then or electricity cut, software glitch etc. Just take it face on, and do not let that affects you and continue to play good poker.
If you let that affects you, you will probably play worse and lose more money in the next games!

If you are going up at those limits, playing for example 100$ sngs, then you will need to do so in sites that dont crash too often, and with a back up internet connection. You dont want such things happen at those limits and not being able to get compensated at the end
It happens very rarely to me, but when it happens, I get extremely angry. It actually happened today on PartyPoker while I was playing some 9 tables of micro stakes SNG´s. Just got an e-mail from support, that it was their fault, so I hope I get my buy-in´s back.

Things like that happen from time to time. I guess everybody here had had such experiences. But 5 minutes are quite a long time to reboot the computer and log in to the client software again. How old is your computer?
