  • Pokerstars River.

    I can't be the only one that has seen some insane rivers on pokerstars over the years. It seems like an incredible rate of hands are killed by the river card, so much so i've come to just accept that i'm going to end up getting busted on the river! D:

    Dealt to Parkyboy94 [Ad Qd]

    *** SHOW DOWN ***
    BODY 100: shows [4c 4h] (a full house, Fours full of Kings)
    Parkyboy94: shows [Ad Qd] (a straight, Ten to Ace)
    BODY 100 collected 11410 from pot
    Parkyboy94 finished the tournament in 16th place

    That river cost me getting into the money for example, just getting a little insane for my liking.

    Also the amount of pocket pairs that appear in the game is just crazy, every time i see someone shove with pocket pairs, 8/10 times the caller has a higher pair, just got taken out last place before the money with JJ by a pre-flop shove from a KK, why pokerstars

      You do understand the concept that someone calling a shove is meant to have a stronger range than the person shoving?

        I'm sure I saw a post somewhere from "BODY 100" complaining about Turns recently.

        Then he came back in the thread and said that he had hit one of his insane 10 outs on the river.

        preflop you had 49% chance to win
        on flop you had 14% chance to win
        on the turn you had 77% chance to win
        and on the river 0% chance to win

        And yet the only card you find to be miraculous is the river card? He had a better chance to hit his river than you did to hit a straight on turn and river combined.
