  • just had the most frustrating beat of my life

    Was the chip leader of the tourney by a large amount.

    I had six thousand chips, other 3 players at my table had 1000 give or take. 4 times in a row I called on there shoves cause I was dealt KQ suited twice, AQ and AJ, didn't hit once while they hit on K10 or pocket 44 or something like that.

    I'm now Im low stacked and BB, I have 9,10 hit a straight on flop, so I shove, villain calls cause he has two hearts and sucks out a flush on turn and river.

    This was without a doubt the most frustrating beat I've ever experienced.

    Maybe I should have protected my stack more but with the blinds going up I knew they were shoving on marginal hands so I called. Was so pissed that my cheeks were hot and flushed.

    that sounds like something i would do,but now i ask myself do i need to do it? chip lead running well aj,kq a bit lose when theres no need to call,sometimes i find i try to finish the game off to quick and my result ends up the same.No problem play wise really with a huge stack but sometimes better to fold even if you think your a head

      Hey C-mac!

      KQs I wouldn't have called a shove with. It's a hand to shove with sometimes, but too weak to call a shove. There are too many hands that opps would be shoving with (any A or pair) that KQ is behind. AQ or AJ, it would depend on what position shoved (early position, I'm not calling... late, I would).

      On the 9 10 hand, if you saw the flop for free and you didn't have bottom straight (JQK board), then you made the correct play. If there was a raise preflop, then I'd have mucked it pre. When the opp has a flush draw there, to make it a bad play for them to call, the opp would need to put more than 36% into the pot... if not, then they are priced in to draw.
