I used to do very well with AKo but have always lost with AKs. I did go through a stretch of PSnl where I got crucified, sodomized and torched so I think there is some serious variance going on.
When I make a pair with AKs/AKo I have lost $ 57.73.
Specifically, though with AKs I consistently lose money with it even though my winning percentage is high. I think that is because I shove more easily with AKs than AKo. My variance for AKs is even worse. With AKs I have made a Flush exactly twice. When I made the 2 Flushes I lost once to a Full House and made .50 the other time for a total amt won when I make a flush with AKs of -1.21.
And before you think I would have made more flushes had I stayed in the hand to the River 81 out of the 183 times I saw the flop.
Further analysis shows that I flopped a 4 flush 18 times, almost exactly within expectation, but flopping a 4 flush I should make a flush 7 times if I stay to the River. Bear in mind, of those 18 times I flopped a 4 flush with AKs I NEVER folded on the Turn.
Is anyone else that unlucky with a specific hand that has a high EV or is it just me?
