If you go in with good cards you will win more, but you will deserve these wins
if you go in with bad hands you will win less and many of these wins will be undeservant
you rarely catch a bad beat (from bad play) from a good player
so next time this happens just think to yourself that the guy who beat you isprobably smiling but probably has lost a lot more money than you in the long run
I don't think bad players get more luck I think they just stick around to see more flops and as a result pull more lower sets and multiple pairs. Tight players only
stay in with big cards and low flops hurt them. Loose players hit more pairs but rarely hit them big. Vary your game and you may hit some too. I'll play 7 - 4 on or off suit every time, superstition, my lucky cards, I hit a really big pot on a boat with these and they continue to due well for me. Multi-pairs, boats and straights more than once. So if your playing me and see 7-4-4 flop run and hide.
