It does amuse me when people say 'I busted with Kings/Aces, stars is Rigged!!' if you get it in with aces/kings 5 times in a tournament, statistically you will lose one! Stars tournaments usually have far fare more runners than other networks so to make a deep run or winning it you will need to get extremely lucky even if you do get your money in as a fav every time.

Exactly, plus, how often do bad beats happen in real life as well? I would probably say I have worse luck in real life! :D
