Unfortunate to be running into those sets, with such a ss obv you made the correct moves and unlucky to have been crushed in both situations. I think I would pass before playing a 33bb ss live game ewww, i like my pub game with no buyin cap . Min buyin of 50bb when it starts and you could buyin for 1000bb if you wanted, which have seen some fish do haha. Win a big tourny and then throw it to the cash game sharks haha.
I'm happy to report that I haven't lost much money against sets lately and started good last weekend. But Sunday was when it started getting bad again. I played sunday and tuesday night and all the 3 sets i flopped got destroyed on the turn and river by draws (one was a backdoor flush, barf!). I got dealt KK vs AA with rags on the board and lost another 1.5 buyins. I lost another 1.5 buyins w/T2P from a rivered flush. I also got gutterballed w/TPTK and lost another 2 buyins (dude called a small bet and I made a huge raise and he goes allin even when I'm pot-committed, LMAO!). I flopped trip kings w/J kicker and lost to a donkey who flopped a K7 boat and was actually betting it out on every street (Obviously, I misread his hand). In total, I lost $1k in those 2 days (sun & tues).
I can't wait til Friday, when I'll be able to play these stupid donkeys. I hope they call me with their draws. They can't hit them everytime I'm in the hand (or so I hope, LOL). I've also decided to play the 3-5 NL more. I realized the pre-flop raises are the same as the 2-3 anyways (i know, it makes complete nonsense). I just have more chips, which is a good thing. But lately, I've been less confident and I am irrationally thinking I might get dealt kings vs aces or flop set under set and lose another $1K. Hopefully, I run normal this weekend. That's all I ask for. If that happens, I'll finally break this 2 weekend losing streak.
