The result sucks, of course, but it's not uncommon to be up against this kind of thing live.
I've mentioned this in another live game thread, but it probably bears repeating: in casinos
, especially at the lower levels of the game, you'll be up against a lot more players who are in the game to gamble
They didn't leave their homes, come to the casino and then wait for a seat to fold their cards - they came to get their money in the pot.
Maybe they normally play craps or roulette
and they're just at the poker table tonight for a change.
They're used to taking the worst of the odds against the house (if the odds they're taking have even occurred to them), they know that any two cards can win and... well lookey here, I've got two cards!
Just accept it as the nature of the beast, get your money in with the best of it when you can, and be prepared for there to be the occasional swing. Remember that for every time they suck out on you with garbage hands, they'll pay you off and then some when you have their average hands crushed.
