So, I played "live" cards last night.  They started at 7pm, but I could not make it until 9 or so.  It was $4/$8 LIMIT Texas Holdem.  Normally don't like limit, but that's what they play, so  when in Rome.....

Sunday night, I played 7 tourneys, and my two pair lost to an inside straight, after I was all in post flop.  My A K lost to A 9, all in pre.  Flop was open ended for the 9, and they hit.  My flopped nut flush lost to runner runner full house.  Why anyone would call my all in check raise holding top pair (Q) with an 8 kicker and  3 diamonds on the board is beyond me, but it happened.  The killer was my A 7 vs A 6, I check raised all in 10 from the bubble on a flop of 4 5 7, and got called for basically 80% of their stack, and they hit the 8 (bink) right on the turn.  Craziness.

In two hours that I played live cards last night, limit at that, I sat down with $100 and turned that into $322.  I think in the two hours that I played, there was 1 open ended str8 that hit.  I was not even in the hand.  Weird night.  I had A K multiple times, and since everyone would call a raise anyway, I just limped with it.  I think it won once, when no one had anything and my A K beat someone's A J.  I guess the point is, when I made a flush, even a 5 high one, it was the best hand.  I never had to worry about I had the K high flush and of course someone else had the Ace high one, or that my nut flush would get out drawn.  I know these things have happened in live action as well, but the frequency online...

Is it loaded up for high impact action, or is it just the frequency of hands that we see sooo many more hands online, and it is just bad luck..

Any thoughts??
