  • Bad beats 90% of the time

    I am sick of it too. I enter the qualifier every day and all i get a hands that suck. and I use the techniques that I learnt in the SNG course and it just makes it worse.
    I don't know why everyone else gets a good hand and I don't. Or are they bluffing? No, if i call their bluff, they have a good hand and are not bluffing. I just want a break.

    Poker can be a very frustrating game. Especially when you play a patient game and run onto a maniac seemingly playing any two cards. What helps me overcome this is to focus on the decisions I make and the actions I take. I can't control what my opponents do but I can control what I do. In a perverse way bad beats are a confirmation of a good decision on your part. For a bad beat to happen you have to be significantly ahead in the hand hen the money goes in and that is a good decision and action in your part.

    Hope the cards turn your way very soon.

        It may be the poker gods are trying to teach you patience. Dont get alarmed about being behind the chip average. Wait for the good hands and then make the shove monkeys pay. Also, AA,KK and AK are NOT the only good hands. A good tip would be to friend Mike Caro on facebook. He offers great tips each day. Read some poker books or get in the teamspeak training league. There are many great players here willing to share their knowledge. Good luck and see you out there.
