      Hello steveandki,

      Welcome to PokerSchoolOnline. Here's a short video about PSO and what it has to offer you. Also check out >>This Page<< for more info.



      Like Ros said bad beats happen. Even if you get it in good the best hand does not always win, this is what makes poker the game it is. The important thing to focus on is making correct plays and decisions and in the long run things will work out.

      We're here to help you so please feel free to ask any questions you may have and thank you for being a member of PokerSchoolOnline.

      Cheers,

      Chris

        Best advice for playing against donks... PLAY AGAINST AS MANY AS POSSIBLE!!! When this makes sense to you,you'll have crossed an important threshold. umbup:

          I'm glad you used the pocket ace as an example. Please understand that the odds of winning with pocket aces pre flop is 85%. Let me reword that last sentence. You have a 15% chance of losing against a single opponent when you have pocket aces. Once you realize no hand is guaranteed until it becomes the nuts, you'll be able to accept those kind of inevitable losses.
