    i just played my azz off in the 1.10$ 3K Guarantee..........

    only to lose with a dominating hand again... ho hum what's new...... and i had less than 10 BB so i had to ship it if i wanted to cash halfway decent.
    so i just played 3 hours and 50 minutes to profit a whole $1.76 for busting out 194th out of 3,824 players!

    i may just start giving this money i just deposited away because i really don't think i have the time for this kinda return on my time spent........i keep getting my chips in with hands that are CRUSHING the other, and sure enough i lose when it really matters. i don't understand how u guys that play these dollar/couple dollars guarantees do it.....u play so long to barely make anything unless you make it into the last 2 or 3 tables.

    here's my busto hand.....what was the % on this one i 88% /12% or something i'm guessing??

    stay positive...stay positive...stay positive....stay ..gggggggrrrrrrrrhhhhhhhhhhh

    Thats mtt's for ya... If ya dont really have the time why not give some sngs a shot.
    Or some 50/50s. You can win more in a sng in a 1/3rd of the time.. Just a suggestion..
    Ya its great if you make a final table in a MTT but it s a tough road there.
    Good luck

      Per PokerStove AQs vs KQs is 71:29

        Trumpin AQ suited vs. KQ suited is only roughly 70/30% ???wow.... i believe your calculator, but that just seems oddly high for only having 3 Kings and diamonds to hit......i mean, even his straight chance is pretty much the same as mine. doesn't that seem high??

            Just looking at the odds of hitting the king you have three outs five times. At 2% per out per street that works out to ~30%. Remember that an overpair vs an underpair is just ~80:20. Anythng higher than 80:20 is HUGE.
