    Hey all can someone explain what i did wrong here thanks ! wrong bett sizes ? 77% on the turn
    Nah, you did nothing wrong. Personally I like to cbet on a coordinated 2 flush board, and when checking I think check-shoving is better on these stacks. But obviously you are always stacking off with the nuts and no matter the line you choose you will get all in vs. this big a draw... like effsea said, poker happens.

          I get rivered on this site every single day . Last night I was in a big tourney , I already made he money but was trying my hardest to make my first final table and get paid some real cash for once . I was waiting patiently for good hands aa, kk , qq , etc . Finally get aces make a huge pre flop raise cause I’m so used to losing on this site that even with aces all I wanted to do was steal the blinds this late in the game . Buddy calls flop comes 7 4 5 . I decide to push whatever if he hit his set then it is what it is . Buddy called had pocket rights . River ace to give me trips now there’s only one card he can hit to win and sure enough . Six on the river . This is an everyday occurrence on PokerStars and I’ve yet to win any serious amount of cash and I honestly consider myself to be a sub par player . Not the best not the worst . But then there’s all these other **deleted inappropriate expression per TOS JWK24** who win every single day ? It just doesn’t add up if you ask me but hey what do I know right ? It’s just poker

              I feel like a bad beat Is never deserved but happens way too often early in mtts so my advice is to try not get your chips in the middle with less then pocket AA or KK, I might even suggest folding high pockets early because of the chance of busting out to a bad beat. Instead try to accumulate chips without letting a bad beat happen in the first place, raise preflop, c-bet, and get them to fold before they get there. Sometimes the best thing to do is sit back and let em take each other out while you pick the best spots to make your move, I always like being the one to bet rather then have to call, having pot control can give you great confidence.

                Is it only me or has anyone noticed that the bad beat is always in favor of the largest stack. No matter the statistics, you can lose from 90% favourite more so if you are the smaller stack going all in with someone. Just my observation. I actually had a chat with the support line about this. Ofcourse, they just say Sorry

                  If we don't have enough chips, then the bigstack can profitably play 2 blanks back at us.. it all depends on the stack sizes (and of course, we remember the ones we lose, not the ones we win). If you play a large number of hands, so that the quantity of them is sizeable (at least 250k, preferably a million)…. the odds go right to where they say they should. I have that many hands on PS and on another site.

                    if this was true all you need do is get the biggest stack then go all in every hand......thinking thats not going to get us far I think but let me know how it goes...

                          This is by far the worst beat with lost opportunities for potentially very good prize money. I had so many good moments to share, I made it deep but he stuck it in deeper. Would have put me in a great position in top 50. Check out this hand I just played on @PokerStars in tournament "$11 Sunday Storm 8th Anniversary, $1M Gtd, $100K to 1st!" http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-hands/Boom/31044862_75C242659C … #BOOMPlayer

                            Yikes! it could have been worse though.. the opp did have 4 outs, so they'll win 8% of the time. Play enough hands and you're going to see 1 or 2 outers all the time. Good run.

                              TheNantucketMan good run with so many players. JWK24 I've always had this question about tournaments. How do the players that manage to get to final tables so frequently avoid the statistical certainty of coming across one of these bad beats and getting knocked out? Do they deliberately avoid getting all their chips in with someone that has more chips? That doesn't sound possible, or is it my imagination that there are players that have a very high frequency of final table finishes.

                                Two things. First, yes, they do try to avoid having all their chips in without a big hand. The other thing... you only see their final tables, you don't see all of their busts. Most of even the bigshots that are getting a lot of FT's, are only ITM about 15% of the time, and we know they're not making FT's with all of those. It all evens out in volume and you don't see their losses.
