That is gross.

Had one of my own today, in a 2000 runner Stars 5.50 turbo. Money bubble had just burst, about 260 left, I pick up AA.

Big blind is table chipleader with about 24k (blinds maybe 600/1200? I shove my 4500 chips, and he feels he has to defend his J5o big blind.

Obv J on flop 5 on river. Yes, that was gross, too. I'm on tilt today.

Oh yeah, also got three-out rivered three tables from $$$ in a Bodog $30 buyin. Big tilt day.

This one is nothing compared to one about 5 minutes before this one.

Basically I have KK. Standard raise 3x BB get one caller. Flop comes K102, I bet, guy calls. Turn is a blank. I push the other guy all in (we were both deep) , he calls. shows 22, river is a 2.


I didn't save that hand history. I have been playing since noon and have broken even/am down a few bucks. I hate wasted days like today.

That's a tough one. I'm amazed at how many people think K 10 offsuit is a good starting hand. I've seen so many people fearlessly call big raises with it, only to have it hit. Maybe it's better than I think.

It can't be too good since it is dominated by the Bill Fillmaff. (K J offsuit)

It's not, but it crushes AJ and AQ. At least most of the time I'm holding AQ or AJ , it does. Suspect

If you run that math you will see that when I have aces any two random cards are actually a 60/40 favorite over me. That is a stat you should memorize.

No wonder my MTT play has been horrible. Thanks for the info. Shocked

I don't think I could have taken any more of those MTTs and for the time being will stick to the SNGs. It's nice to actually beat your table and not get moved to another table to just get beat down. Of course, the weekend will come around and I'll be back in an MTT. Neutral

I wish I preferred ring games or SNGs, but I guess I'm just too masochistic, lol. I honestly prefer MTTs, but damn they are soulcrushing sometimes.
