Bug on Xbox 360 Texas Hold ‘Em lets losers win?

In a game of Texas Hold ‘Em over live I went all in along with five other players to make a hefty pot of $400,000+ chips. On the turn card I realized that my pocket kings weren’t going to cut it and I was drawing dead. One of the other players had a flush so there was really no chance for me to win the hand. The river card came up and right as the game was about to declare a winner my spotty internet connection knocked me offline. I knew my investment was lost all ready so it wasn’t a big deal. However to my surprise when the game loaded up the bankroll screen I ended up “winning” the pot and over $400,000 chips were credited to my account.

How did this happen? It appears that when you’re disconnected from live the game gives players the benefit of the doubt. Instead of losing money you automatically win the hand. Did anyone else have a similar experience to this to confirm this bug? Or was this a one shot lucky strike in my favor?
