Personally I'm pretty certain that online poker isn't rigged.... Also I think that if you do think it is rigged then you probably are not understanding probability and statistics correctly or you just really are very unlucky. lol (remember that psychology plays a roll - we ALL have selective memories when it comes to bad beats and getting lucky)
Anyway, here are 2 vids - one advocating that it is not and explains why.. the other stating that it is... The second one is, imo, pretty funny... the guy gets really angry and swears a lot... I've got to admit that in some of the hands he makes some amazing folds. lol... although - he is showing vids of stuff that happened... but if you video thousands of hands then of course you will get loads of strange occurrences.. Worth a watch though as it is funny.
More of my money went to the sh1tter with fixed football and basketball games than with any other sports or hobby. So at this point I couldn't even bothered, but gripsed youtube channel is a very useful source for any basic knowledge about MTTs - not like that other guy's, who's autism could be detected miles away and he is rather just bitching about p.oker, not playing it.

2nd guy is just fkin epic though
but yea considering how many hands people play per session its normal bad beats happen (even some highly unlikely ones, like catching 2 runner runner outers). heck most of us could make similar video
hell in maybe 2 days i managed to lose with K high vs A high fh, AAAQQ vs quad Q's and KKKTT vs straight flush plus many other more bareable beats, like K vs A high flush. But luckily it was just a bad day or two and if you put enough volume, at some point its bound to happen to pretty much anyone. And it happens to your opponents too :=P
also i agree with u, we all have very selective memory and most of the time when we get our money in as underdogs and win we dont think its a big deal. But if the same things happens to us, its like the whole world wants you to lose, ps is rigged, its all about luck, etc
