I'm getting killed by sets lately..
This just boggles my mind because the odds
of flopping a set are ridiculously low but it's happened to me four or five times in a row. I've gone down with A's, 9's, and 7's within the last week. Each time, I had the better of it going in and they don't hold up. I play in 2-4 nl games on Ultimate Bet and have lost a ton of money on these hands.
The 7's and 9's are great examples. I had the 7's at a six hand table, which I always play, and had a raiser and a caller in front of me, I push all in with my remaining 70$. The raiser folds and the caller calls my all in with pp of 4's. He's absolutely dominated and hit's his set on the flop. There was 34 bucks in the pot and my bet took the pot to around 104 bucks. I think that's a bad play on his part to call another 56 bucks KNOWING at best his racing but more than likely DOMINATED. I hate this terrible play.
The pocket 9's got beat by pocket 6's after a flop of 6 2 4 rainbow. I shoved and ran into the set of 6's. I feel like I will never show a profit when my best hands don't hold up. It's discouraging and very costly money wise. Does UB run their site honestly? I cashed out over 2500 bucks and it's been down hill ever since...
