Yeah, that sucks.......
I agree ongame isn't the best site, but I don't think there are more runners runners there than any other site. I once had the feeling though that in situations with pairs vs. two overcards (one of them being the ace) the ace would always come.
But of course that isn't the case. Sure I might encountered a streak where I lost with an overpair 8 or 9 times i a row, but like it is also possible that the roulette will turn black 10 times in a row so is this. Just ennoying when it happens to you. The reason why I don't like Ongame is mostly do to all there mistakes and cracks in software. I have signed up for several tournaments getting canceled with no apparent reason and like 1½ hour of waiting the might send an admin to the lobby explaining how sorry they are. Clear no-show to play there.
I must admit I have often seen runners runners both on Ongame and other sites, so I don't find this situation particular at all, but sorry for you man.
Among the Ongame network a sites like Bwin and Bet24.
I had it on red kings! Some agressive player raise from CO I call with AT clubs. Flop KJ4. Royal flushdraw, So I check He c-bets I make a big checkraise. And the software shuts. So 15 min later, when my comp has restarted. I go back the money gone I had invested there and didnt know how the hand ended (lost 30$ on that checkraise) + what was already invested. I came back went with 2 1 tabble with my 750$ BR and tilted it away!!!! So fcking bad I immediately threw the software from my computer and it will never returns!

That's a typical badbeat. But maybe you should look a little bit on your bankroll-management. You said, that you are finished for this month, because of 200$. My bankroll on Viktor Chandler is about 500$. I always play NL-Holdem on 4 tables. With my bankroll i play 2ct/4ct so the chance of becoming broke is very low. You need more time to move up in the limits, but a bad day won't destroy your bankroll.

no i mean it was the exact same hand and situation and pretty much the same pot size. thats the only reason i posted it -.-. me on the button with KK flopping sets with no flushdraws avalible for the villain and him pushing me all in right after the flop. obviously ive had alot of bad beats inbetween, thats just poker. I just fought the same exact thing with the same exact hands happening twice was pretty "amusing".
No i probably shuoldnt be playing at the limits i was playing but that is the limits i usually play at and statisticly the ones i do best at. im far from a big winner and i usually cash any winnings before the end of every month because of poor bankroll management in real life . I didnt lose my whole bankroll obviously but i did pound away roughly double the amount I lost on that hand in anger before i quit. I´ve won most of it back now though so no worries =)
And im not sure how many hands ive played since ive played at alot of different sites and my computer resets my hand histories after every restart . But before that at my current site i was up to 300 000 hands played on that site.
------------ 300 000 might be a bit high. probably closer to 250 000 on that site.

few weeks ago had a very similar thing happen, was playing a phase tourney on PKR (Which you basically play like DoN for until you reach the bubble) and anyway, I was first out because I had JJ, flop came rag, rag, J no flush or straight draw apparent, one opponent, goes the bluff Allin, i instat call, he shows AK, turn comes 10 and river of course Q
first out and no new phase ticket (anyone who knows phase knows the frustration of dropping right out, this was a phase 3 i believe)
anyway, seems you had waaay to much of your BR on the table.. I do that too as well, and go mad tilt as well and end up with noodles for rest of month as well sucks to be us who can't do BRM...
