    I don't have alot of luck at cash tables. And hands like these really don't help! The first one was yesterday. Maybe a re-raise post would have pushed him off, but you have to think you're good here. Don't you? Secound was today. Last one was sometime ago when I was feeling flush and thought i see how it was on the bigger money tables. Was looking like a fairly profitable adventure untill this. 98% in front at the river! Oh well., back to the dollar sit n goes

    First one, I'm shipping it on the flop after the action in front of me. The player with the set of 5's may lay it down knowing he's behind, or he may call and the result will be the same in the end. Either way I'm okay getting it in while I'm ahead. 2nd one's just a tough break. 3rd one I'm probably betting bigger on the flop, although just like the first hand, there's no guarantee your opponent goes anywhere hitting the flop the way he did. Tough breaks, but keep at it. umbup:

      Well son I remember replying to your first thread about bad beats in tournies a while ago and now I find I am going to have to take your hand in cash

      Completely different kettle of fish here and if you remember the old way you used to play then you will be much more successful in min cash games. There are a few tips I will give you when I get back from holiday and start playing poker regularly again. In the meantime have a look at the 6 max videos and the grinding up series fro Felix. They offer a great deal of invaluable help and advice how to win at these levels.



      First point I note is that you are not playing with 100BB in any of the games. Regulars will note this and will be willing to play for stacks seeing you as a newcomer. I often start with shorter stacks on the 2NL to warm up, maybe even on 5NL, but as soon as i move up the levels I am buying in for 100BB and reloading if I go under that.
