You have to gave a lot of money and than you will see some miracle river cards.Most of the time is rigged so is up to you,quit or notPlay some freerolls,and start from low stakes.After too many hours you will realize that is easier in casino or betting section. Good luck

Change the way you play the specific hand, if you are slow playing with it, or start going all in preflop like i do almost every singles time While some times i get just the blinds this way, my win ration has increased way too much.

I am deeply sorry for you man, but it is not possible to loose every aces hand, at least in the long run. It might happen more than once in some tournaments, but in the end AA will win. So you should not quit poker.

Not to put you down or anything, but it's most likely your post flop play that's letting you down. In any situation you have to identify where you are possibly beat. With AA post flop you really need to be able to find the fold button on occasion. Online poker isn't rigged, it plays out so many more hands than live, meaning more bad beats, leading to a perception of it being 'rigged'. It's really not. It's just variance.
Review how you are playing these monster pairs and go from there. Always be raising preflop, and playing aggressively post flop. AA isn't as strong post flop, and very hard to get away from. Other than that, it's just variance. Eventually you'll come out on top.
------------ Also, You shouldn't quit poker, but you should quit jackpots.
------------ To edit; AA isn't AS strong post flop as it is preflop. Unless, ya know, an AAx board.
