Poker rant (in Off-topic)

Okay this is getting ridiculous, ive played poker for ages, why is it granted that every time you cash out of pokerstars you get the most crazy beats again and again. Outa all the sites ive played on over the course of years pokerstars must be one of the most rigged (at times) site there is.
Only played a few tourneys there today, (main poker on other site), and every time I got eliminated it was vs an 2outer turn to river (woulda had 2nd in chips 40 spots before the money) - AA vs JT, allin on turn.
J3Q3 board. other case was a nutstraight vs flushdraw allin at turn etc. Not mathematically unreal but its been like this for the last weeks. Together it adds up to a rather improbable string of beats

Guess I would just end this with; if anyone reads this or plays poker regulary on some site, which sites may that be? Got any suggestions? Got a gutfeeling that some sites are less "doomswitch'y" or got more stable algorithms? Well thats about it.

online poker is terrible, some of the worst beats i've ever had have come from it

I think the beats you get are just due to random events.

Sure, I get more bad beats online, however I am playing a lot more hands per hour than in a live tourney.

Ranger hit the nail on the head, you'll feel like you've had more beats, but in reality you're just playing more hands than you would normally play live.

Dunno though, I haven't played online in a long time, it's a felony in my state :S
