re: Poker & Do u always fear the worst???
I guess I am not alone after all.
I have said the very thing to someone who was drawing to a suckout.
Sadly, as I am sure you must be experiencing as well, 9 times out of 10 I will be right.
Ok, somewhat of an exaggeration there. But, well over the mathematical expection. At least by a 3 to one margin,
It seriously sucks when you are in a long rut. It ends up affecting your game most of the time.
But, what can you do. Positive thinking will not change the cards any more than negative thinking will.

I remember one time in a MTT at a casion. Delt KK. I had about 12 big blinds left anf the guy to act after me has been calling most things most of the nite. I push all in. After a while, he calls and shows 1010. I say to him "Don`t worry, u will hit your set" sure enough on turn 10
Forgot to add NOT A BAD BEAT POST.
Do u think u should think positive or be prepared for the worst???
