  • It keeps happening to me

    After a long hiatus - I have decided to play a tourney. After a few games I have came to realis why I left in the first place. How do you avoid these situations.. seems to be happening way too frequently

    Happens all the time, nothing unusual about it. Just be happy the guy made a big mistake and gave you a free card to try and fill up. Had the river paired the board you probably would have stacked him.

      ya happens all the time if u ask me id have to say yer lucky only losing so much instead of him raising on the river and u having to make a sketchy call or fold. i lost 2 pso tourneys the other day to something quite the same was trips vs straights both times, in which case i raised preflop and they called with 6/7 off suit in 1 case. dont worry this happens to every poker player, just do wut i do and call out the other player for calling half there stack preflop on such crappy cards lol.

        4 sure you got away cheap-- set 9 is great hand - yet on such a draw heavy board against 2 opps. you did well to not go broke-- gl-- monk..

          this happens to me all the time.. also i always lose with a flush against a fullhouse, either flopped, or with a runner runner...

          however reviewing this hand in my humble opinion its not a bad beat. You were a 2 to 1 favourite preflop (you are ahead but nothing to be crazy about it ) against a-3s and after the flop he had a 4-flush.
          The odds of completing a flush after having 4-flush on the flop are less than 2 to 1 ( 1.86 to 1 i believe). So it was probable that a heart could land either on the turn or the river.
