Yesterday I was playing on Pokerstars a 5 Card Draw PL 11$ + 1$ S&G on a table with 6 players. And no joke... in this game was 7 <<<< in words seven 4 of a kind. I was winning it with AAAA - DDDD - AAAA - 7777.
Then there also was 2222 - AAAA - JJJJ... all in 1 hour. I never seen it before and think this is not normal. I never had 4 ... 4 of a kind in one week... now in one hour LoL

First of all, rigging online poker game is not targeted at bad or good players, its sole purpose is to generate rake, from both types of players and it has nothing to do with bad beats.
Sorry mate but you never got to the point why does the pokerrroom earn more money from a bad than from a good player, both players pay the same in rake
I answered this in different thread, i would give the link but my first post on that page will pop up. pasted with quotes
..but You never hear of someone taking a poker room to court..
To be able to win a case on court one would have to provide some evidence that online room is cheating. Theory that they are making money this way and even pulling out some big database which shows this behavior is not evidence that will hold up in court because poker is a game of chance and as such can produce any result. To have any chance of proving that software is rigged one would have to get his hand on entire code of some poker room and without their knowledge because all they have to do is delete part of the program code which is doing this or just swap hard drives with clean program code.
do You really think that they would risk a 100% bullet proof money making site.. ...for some pennies more in rake?
If you can accept reasoning I have presented in part about proving something in court then you must agree that this is almost bulletproof too.
About amount they can scoop this way I totally disagree, at the moment there are almost 20,000 tables full at Poker stars, which is on average 20,000 hands per minute. if they can get on average 0.05 per hand more in rake that sums up to $1000 per minute which will be $60,000 per hour.
60,000*16=960,000 (i have not put 24 hours but 16 hours to allow little more variance) If you think that $1,000,000 per day is pennies please send me some lunch money.
