Trusting online poker.
Like the chaps above have already mentioned, I'd not really trust online poker. It's not the RNG which is at fault (usually), but the cheating which is going on inside the company itself. Somebody releasing the hole card details of other players to a couple of friends is most likely the suspect.
It is very much in the companies interest to run a straight shop, as any hint of impropriety is usually pounced upon by the community and then they are effectively out of business. Unfortunately, the transparency & oversight which is needed to effectively police this is sadly lacking. It's very much like the Government saying "Trust us, it's all OK and above board. We wouldn't cheat you".
As to anybody who'd play in a high-stakes, live game, go check out how card manipulators work (not very hard to top/bottom deal, palm & return cards, etc). Alternatively, spend a few minutes thinking about how you could work with another player secretly to gain advantage - it's surprisingly easy. A couple of players working together can generally clean up on a game.
