    Suppose my last post was removed for? any reason mods?

    97% chance i win here, against 2% something smells..

  • #2
    nothing smells, he was a 2.8% chance to win the pot which means out of 100 runs of the turn and river he would win 3 of them (rounded up) this was just one of those times that he got up and won the pot.

      Why are you calling a 3x raise OOP with A6s?

      Yeah,this was a bad beat for sure, but paying a premium price to play marginal hands OOP will cost you a lot more money than bad beats ever will.

      Didn't see your original post so don't know what you said,but if there was any mention or hint of the deal/shuffle/site being rigged or dishonest (TBH the "something smells" crack is enough IMO,but then I'm not a mod...)in that post,then they ARE going to close/remove it.

        Why do you consider A 2.8% Chance coming out to be strange in any way?

        I would be more worried if A 2.8% chance never came up.
        It sucks when it happens against us but it does happen.
        Best thing is to make a note on your opponent. Pat your self on the back for making a good play on the turn and move on.
