Bad Beats

959 posts in this topic

Ridiculous call with just Aces, no draw. I know "just aces" sounds ridiculous to those of you don't play Omaha, but if you're looking at a 5000 dollar bet, there's no sense in calling with just an overpair to the board. So, as you can see, bad calls happen no matter how high you go.

Wow. REALLY.

Like I said, this place is just for venting for me. You can see ridiculous beats in the BBV sub forum over at the 2+2 forums at all levels, and a number of ridiculously good players posting what is an obscene amount of winnings. It'd be nice to be up there with the big boys one day.

Wow. REALLY.

Alright man, chill out. I know that when you're on the bad run you seem to be on, it feels like you're the only one. It's just variance, just trying to show that it happens to everyone. These bad runs turn into good ones, then into bad ones, and so on. You just need to minimise your losses in the bad runs, and maximise them in the good ones. Plus, at the .50/1 level, where I used to spend my time, there are far more weak players than even at 1/2, so bad calls become more frequent, meaning bad beats become more frequent.

Eh? I was just vehemently agreeing with you that it was a really bad play from the guy with AA! That's all. I'm totally chilled. Just sitting here doing some casino bonuses while catching up on some TV shows, occasionally taking a break and reading rllmuk.

Oh, my apologies. :unsure: Capital letters rarely express being chilled out, my mistake. :wub:

Sorry - it was more of an italic thing expressing surprise rather than a shouty thing, except I was too lazy to put it in italics. Y'know, like Chandler or something.

Anyway, yes I'm running bad, but I'm still actually a few hundred dollars up in the last two weeks, plus another few hundred in rakeback and then some more in bonuses, so it's not like I'm actually losing money. Hmmmmm.... just had a look. Overall, I'm still good for well over a thousand dollars including all the extra bumpf. Oh I just worked it out - I'm currently making around £15 per hour while I feel like this is an awful run. It's not the end of the world by any stretch.

Oh just for fun, my last casino bonus, I turned $215 into $0 in the space of $700 wagered using $4 bets, including hitting an incredible 22 Double Losses to 13 Wins. When I run bad I guess I run bad at everything.

Those close to me know the utter punishment I've taken recently. Well, today was no exception.

Highlights:

AJ vs AK. Jxx flop, Ace on turn. He checkraises me all in. Of course I call. King on river.

JT vs K6. AJT flop. He bets, I put him all in. He calls. Turn Queen.

KQ vs AK. AQx flop. He bets small, so I call. Turn Queen. He bets, I put him all in, he calls. River Ace.

KK vs QQ. All in on low flop. Turn Queen.

KK vs AQ all in on JT9 flop. Turn 8.

KK vs ATo all in preflop. Flopped an Ace.

And a few others where I was over 90% to win when the money went in. Yes, 90%. Set vs overpair twice included where they hit their higher set on the river.

I have finally run worse than I ever possibly imagined. It's not fun.

Ouch, man. Some real coolers there. I had a similar run a few months back, and while it hasn't stopped, it's not as severe now. Just know that because of this bad run, you'll experience an equally enormous good run at some stage.

I've decided to take a much-needed break from the game until my league finals. Then, after the summer, when I'm back in my old apartment in the city with broadband, I'm going to lodge 200 dollars to an online account, get myself a rakeback deal, get myself set up with PokerTracker, and get my game polished by grinding up from $.05/$.10, and move up levels every time I get together 20 buyins for the next level. So at $400 I'll move up to $.10/$.20, at $1000 I'll move up to $.25/$.50, and so on. Should be a nice little challenge for me to cost-effectively improve my cash game play, which needs some serious help. I'll probably start a blog around that time to track my progress. Quite looking forward to it!

Oh and to top off the night: 86.5% VP$IP hits set over set on me for $200.

Oh, and AT vs T5 (!!!) on Ten high flop. 5 on river. Thanks very much for that.

Oh no - THIS tops the night off:

JJ on QJx flop. All in. Turn Queen. River Ace. He has AQ.

I have never know anyone run worse. That's not me feeling sorry for myself - that's the honest truth.

Jesus Christ, that last one is brutal. Can't fault him for getting the money in, really, especially at those levels, but that's a brutal beat. Have you thought of changing sites? Not saying that it's a problem with the site, but maybe for a change of pace, and a new player-base.

There's so many players at Party, there's no issue there, plus it's a very easy site to multitable. Another $1,000 loss tonight. Just spent an hour or so going through the big losers I've had tonight in Pokertracker and, aside from the two set under sets I've had tonight, every single large loser I put my money in well ahead, indeed a handful I was over a 90% favourite with the money all in but I lost them. Nothing more I can do.

Another month, and I'd be up several thousand dollars already. Instead, I'm down about $1,000 from play. Oh well... I'll make it back. Ths standard of play is so bad this can't last forever.

I don't like the 3x bb raise with AAs. No where near enough when two people have already limped. Your raise just attracted callers and with 4 other players going to the flop it was likely that you AAs would get crack. I would have been tempted to shove pre-flop or raise a massive amount to isolate maybe one player.

Saying all this I'm useless with AAs. After being cracked by 4d 9d in a cash room when I raised 40x bb pre-flop (he flopped a god damn flush) I've resorted to going all in pre-flop with them all the time. I still get callers and I still get shafted. JJ K10 and Q4 have rogered me so far.

I'm the same. No matter what I do with them I get them rinsed. I think you're right, should have gone all in preflop, but tbh I suspect the twat would have called me anyway, he was aggressive as fuck. Cheers for the advice though ;)

I officially hate AA and KK.

*edit* Actually, now that I think about it, my hope was that someone would reraise so I could go all in, won't be attempting that again anytime soon.

Was gonna come over the top on the turn and decided against it, but I don't think it would have made a difference to the outcome of the hand, even if he had pushed all in then.

I have been getting fucked real good in the last week. Quite demoralising.

Nope, that's a tough one.

When you flop the paired part of the board for trips and you have a terrible kicker it's probably always an idea to bet on the flop to try and find out where you are. Problem is the guy could flat call you thinking you have a 10 in your hand. But if he raises you or goes all in at least you might be able to get away from it thinking you're out kicked. Then again this is a tournament so you need to get chips quickly. No, I think you were almost certain to go bust there.

Yeah, reckon he would have just called me anyway if I had bet on the flop. The thought that he had the other 5 crossed my mind for about 0.000001 seconds when he bet, but I discounted it. Doh.

If I bet flopped trips, no kicker, and I was raised on the flop, it'd really depend on the player for me as to whether I'd lay it down. A lot of players (myself included) will occasionally raise with a ten with a decent kicker here, to find out where they are. On that kind of flop, a lot of people will put out a feeler bet with a missed small to medium pocket pair, and given how that's more likely than someone having a five, trying to snap off the bet by raising with a ten is often successful, and can even get tighter players to fold their own ten, regardless of kicker.

This hand is a shame, but it's not a bad beat, it's just a bit of a cooler. You put in all your money behind. Put in your stack seven times in a row with a more than 90% chance of winning and win only one of them. That's how I was rolling last week.

I just did my all in pre-flop tactic again with AAs today got called by a K5 donkey who rivered a flush.

Pretty much the next hand I raised 15xbb with KK got one caller who flopped two pair with a fucking 10 and a fucking 8 (offsuit).

That's about $100 lost on premium pairs getting out flopped by any two cards in the the last month.

Even yesterday my AAs all in preflop lost 2 out of 3. One to QQ hitting a set, and one to KK hitting a set. Oh annoying! The other was against AQs (!!!) which actually flopped a flush draw and would have possibly had me throwing toys out of the pram if that had hit as well.

Saw this one at the last Beer Hand Open in Action yesterday. I was just on the table and out of the hand already.

Player A raises pre-flop about 3xBB, Player B reraises all-in (was short-stacked). Player A calls and turns over QQ. Player B turns over AQo. Player A happy as Larry.

Flop comes Qxx. Job done. Fat lady singing... or so you'd think.

Turn comes A.

River comes A. ;)

Player B wins with full house (A over Q) over Player A's full house (Q over A).

Player A went out shortly after with another horrendous beat. He was really pissed off, but kept it in well. It was one of those hands that had people from the other tables coming over and asking what happened.

I had an all in preflop with AA beaten by AQo just yesterday. Queen on the flop, Queen on the river.

I've given up even chatting about some of my bad beats now. They're just so bad it's ridiculous.

Couple of recent examples (at 200NL):

Raised JJ in SB, hit set of Jacks on KJT flop (2 hearts, one diamond, 1 caller). $27 bet into $30 pot, called. Turn a low diamond. I push all in to chase off any draws - I KNOW he doesn't have a striaght - over 1.5x pot at the time. He calls. River another diamond. He turns over AT diamonds for the nut flush. One card to come, over 1.5 times pot on the turn to put him all in, he calls with bottom pair, a gutshot and a flush draw.

Second one, AQs hits nut flush on turn, albeit on paired board. Raise up a total retard (plays 85% of hands and cannot fold anything), he calls. River 2. He has 22 and hits a full house.

Recently I've been getting about 10-15 of these every day, so I moved back down to 100NL. My table selection is amazing, my luck is hideous, and I can't be bothered with it anymore, hence this being my last month playing like this.

Yep, he eventually went out with his KK beaten by AJ. Not a nice day for him.
