What an ironic statement this is, since this very thing happened shortly after I made this post. Never fails... playing a MTT SNG at Pokertime (30 players), been somewhere in the top 3 most of the game. Hit final table, get dealt 4/4 on the button. Make a small preflop raise (no Dorkus, it was not a minimum raise! ), all but one (small blind) folds. Flop is 3, 4, 6 two cards suited. I've flopped my set, but there is the straight draw and a flush draw possibility, so I push a large bet out, putting SB all-in should he call (he had made minimum bet after flop). He calls, turns over A8...not of the suits on board, and gets.......you guessed it--four cards for a straight! I could not believe it.
So now, I've gone from 3rd in chips to last...with about 900 chips remaining. I play patient, on the verge of tilting, but swallowing my pride and biding my time where I can make my move. It soon comes by way of pocket Jacks. Only to get called by pocket Kings and knocking me out on the bubble! ARGH!!!!
I swear this happens to me EVERY FREAKIN' TIME I play in a MTT. Get killed by a suckout, leaving me crippled only to have a decent hand get squashed by another monster sitting right next to me when I decide to make my move. I actually went all-in once with QQ, only to have the peeps on either side of me call w/ KK on one side, and AA on the other--again on the bubble!
So sorry to ramble on and on, but this just really pissed me off today as this has been happening A LOT lately. If you see something that I did wrong in the above rambling, please let me know!
