Poker is rigged (ironic isn't it).
There, now you look like this with one eye.
There are several reasons it seems the big stacks suck out or win more hands.
- When you lose a big pot to them you are done. If you win they are still there and get a second chance. That is the POWER of the big stack.
- More money means they can call with more marginal plays to try and catch up and take you out (look up reverse implied odds
- You don't seem to remember when you suck out because they had it coming but you should never get sucked out on.
- Sucking out on someone gives you a 5 second high. When you get sucked out on it can ruin your day, week or year.
