Bovada is very fishy

So ive gotten into online poker again recently and the amount of 2 and 3 outers that I'm losing to is absurd. I expect people to tell me I'm crazy, but what are the odds that I can get all the money in preflop 7 times in a row with an overpair to underpair and lose every single one of those hands? I'm seeing it happen on hands I'm not,involved in as well. Another concerning trend I'm seeing which happened twice within 10 hands was a player all of a sudden making crazy preflop and post flop calls when he had been playing super nitty up until then.

So this nit limps in from CO, BTN raises 4x, I make it 16x from the BB with QQ, and CO calls, BTN calls. Flop brings 5-7-5 w 2 clubs and I have red queens. I pushed all in for 2x pot and he calls with A2 offsuit and catches runner runner to make a flush with the 2!

Re: Bovada is very fishy

Then 9 hands later I get into a pot with the same guy who again calls a big 3 bet. I have AK suited and flop trip kings on a K-10-K board. We get all the money in and he has K-2 and hits the 2 on the river. As soon as this hand is done he goes back to being a rock not getting out of line at all, playing very few hands, folding to small bets. Doesn't make any sense.

TLDR but consider improving your poker game including, but not limited to folding more rivers

Re: Bovada is very fishy

most live poker guys get tripped out by how frequently the infrequent stuff actually happens.

your brain likes to remember the infrequent stuff. you bump your toe in a dark garage, you're never going to forget that spot. it's a cognitive bias built in to protect you.
