  • Bad Beat at the worst time.

    O.k. everyone, I have a bad beat for you. I have pocket nines under the gun. I limp and the flop comes Q 9 6. I go all in and am called by 2. The turn another 6 (great I think) and the other 2 go all in. One has Jack 6 and the other Q 10. I have them dominated, until the river. Yes you guessed it another Q. I was in 26th place in league at that point and it put me out in 718 place out of 1500. I lost 12 points and I am now in 52. Cannot believe my luck . With an ITM finish I could have been 10th but instead I guess pokerstars had other plans for me. Well I guess I will have to try again next month.

      limping 9's

      Im not a great player but I think most will tell you that limping in with the pair would have warded off the J 6 player as a jack had flopped on the river you would have been out also. The Q 10 player may have gone with you with the preflop raise as this is a very loose leaque I have noticed but even then your odds would have been 50% vs 1 player compared to 33% vs 2 players.
      Also yes bad beats happen, keep your chin up and keep swinging.
      cheers the Hamster

        The Jack 6 guy was a real donk calling any raise so I was afraid of going out early. I normally would raise pocket 9's however, with this type of player I was afraid to lose early so by limping I was still in the game if the flop did not go my way. Also he was very lucky and chip leader I may add. Anyway, it happens and thanks for the support. Good luck in the next month Hamster!
