    Seat 4: stringslingr (big blind) showed [Td Tc] and lost with a full house, Tens full of Queens
    Seat 5: csacsinszka showed [Qs Th] and won (2330) with a full house, Queens full of Tens

    I wait and fold alot and lost a little trying make hands with cards, and whenever I finally catch a hot hand like a full house, or even a strong pair or two, The other guy always has that same hand better one over. Earlier in this game I had 77, was beaten by 88, I had 99 and lost to tens, Un freakin believable, I really can't belive in real life, that this would happen as often as it happens to me! POKER STARS SUCKS

    If you are so sure about this then you would be a fool to continue playing online.

    You didn't raise enough to force QT to fold so can't be surprised when it pops up at showdown.

      While I think your tilted logic is baseless, I do understand how you feel. Got involved in a blinds battle last night at a cash table. Button raises, small blind 3-bets, I 4-bet with AKo. Button folds, small blind only calls. Flop is like 2K8. I bet, small blind pushes, I call. He shows KK. Case K hits the flop, the only card in the deck that could get me stacked. ~7% chance of that happening. LOL...

      Hands like that are going to be extremely unpleasent, but they do happen all the time if you play enough volume. Get used to it. It won't happen as much live because the volume of hands played is lower. It does happen just as often live...
