re: Poker & Are you in the hot seat?
Luck? Karma call it what you like! Yeah it does happen and is going to happen. Sometimes you can't win with a monster hand but win with real rubbish!
Some people will only sit in certain seats..its all in their heads IMHO.
If the cards come, they come if not you just have to sit through it.
The other day I was playing in a SNG and was dealt KK in the BB. Stakes were 150/300 and we were all sitting at about 1500 (4 left). Dealer raise to 900, SB calls. Both have been fairly tight so I consider folding but the pot is just too big. I should have pushed but ended up calling. Flop is K22 - YAY! flopped a monster. SB pushes all in, I call and Dealer calls. OMG now what? SB had AA and dealer had 22 and took it down with quads. It happens.
Ended up getting 120 chips back..SB all in and i get 72o. Lol Im out! RIGHT?
WRONG! every one is in the pot and the flop is 777. Quads !!! Double up
In the next couple of hands I kept hitting and was soon over 3000 chips and chip leader, and went on to win it.
I dont believe that it was my brilliant plays but just that I had one excellent run. Thats all
