              THAT attitude is exactly why your results are suffering Toon. Do yourself a favor--download the free trial of PokerTracker3 for 60 days. If nothing else it will show you your hand performance since the beginning of the calendar year (what % your AA hand won,AKs,AKo all the way down to 22,every hand combiantion suited and not). I think you'll find it quite an eye-opener. What I percieved my %'s on alot of hands and what they really were was a 15% difference in some cases. And in a game as statistically driven as poker that's a HUGE difference.

              I just as I'm typing this went out in the 20:00 EST PSO with QQ all-in for my last 2100 chips in a 3 way pot. Pot was raised to me (I was MP2) by the UTG+1 spot. He had shown a big range so I shoved (QQ with an M3 and change it's an auto-shove regardless) and the BB called as did the original raiser. BB turned over 99 and UTG+1 had KJo. Flop comes Q93 rainbow,6 turns and BAM!!! a river 10. And I just said "NH" because it's freaking STANDARD. If you were to ALWAYS manage to get your stack in as an 80% favorite you are still going to lose 1 out of every 5 hands. That's the math,pure and simple. Do the particulars really matter all that much?

              I know this much---the more I resign myself that short of those times where I win an SNG or MTT then more often than not I'm going to go out ugly everytime I sit down,the better I play. Because I accept that it's going to come sooner or later,I just try to make it later so I can accomplish something before the hit comes. What measures my success,or lack thereof,is'nt IF that is going to happen but rather WHEN it will happen. Learn to lessen your exposure early when the possible gains are'nt really worth it Toon and I think you'll be happier with you results.

              Remember if you go out more often than not holding the better hand when the chips went in then you're playing good,solid poker,IF it happens after you garnered some measure of success. But if yoy expose yourself too often the law of averages is just going to catch you all the quicker.

              But this "It's rigged" stuff is self-defeating and quite frankly pure poppycock in my opinion. And to be honest I think players that rely on that saw are using it as a crutch rather than trying to address their shortcomings as a player.

                With a random shuffle an overwhelming favorite will be outdrawn some small percentage of the time.

                The only way that an overwhelming favorite will always win is if the shuffle is not random and the site is rigged. Since bad beats happen, and I don't have complete data about the frequency, I conclude that the site is not rigged and the shuffle is random.

                  Exactly Leviathan. The one thing that hit home for me the most when I saw my numbers laid out by PT3 was that all of my starting hands,from AA all the way down through 22,and every combo in between (AKs,AKo,through 32o) performed,with a few exceptions,within 3-5% of expected norms. We're human,we process and remember the bad turns of the cards more than we remember or acknowledge the good ones.Anyone who thinks that they are being constantly victimized, get a tracking site that will lay it out for you and your perspective will change.
