Can I Get Any More Unlucky
I just lost 4 SNGs in a row by flushes.
Last two SNGs I left at #3 - but both were the same hand (almost). I push, get called, lead after flop - but turn and river bring runner runner flush. Both sets of flops were 2 red cards and a spade (in last two SNGs). Turn and River were spades and I lose to two flushes right there.
I lost to another runner runner flush earlier. I don't know if it's just AP, but it's getting rediculous. If I go all-in after flop or turn and I'm leading, I just KNOW that I'm going to get beat in river. Another SNG I got beat on river by a guy that was going out. Had TPTK - he had bottom pair. He hit his other pair on river.
If it was just once I'd say okay. But I've lost a ton of $$$ tonight playing SNGs. EACH one I was leading coming out of flop and lost. That's not an exaggeration. I've had misreads and I'm a solid, but not GREAT player. I've def been outplayed before. But tonight - I'm making reads after flop and pushing to get called and sucked out on. I can put people on draws, but they always get their draws.
I've been here a while and I know - I don't believe it's rigged or anything - but I swear - I've had Quad As and 2 str8 flushes tonight. I've NEVER had Quads or a Str8 flush in playing a year in our league in live games. So in one night, I beat the odds
of what I get in a year of live hands.
Why do you think casinos
give away $$$ for bad beats in their poker rooms? Because they don't happen that often. Online - how many times do you see a FH get beat by Quads? We are lucky in a night to see 3 or 4 FHs and maybe 1 or 2 quads for 20 people playing about 12 hours straight. Online - you can see it in 2 hours. I know more hands - but in a year I haven't had the hands I can get in one night.
Okay - thus my rant.
But here is something I keep seeing. I dismiss it as coincidence, but then it happens again. It happens too often to not bring a twinge of doubt.
If I'm playing two tables, I get the same hands on both tables at the same time a lot. I swear. I got 99 in my ring game and got a FH and scooped the pot. While I was in that hand, I got 99 in my SNG (and lost). Then I got AJ in one, look up and next hand was AJ. It wasn't every hand of course. But it was enough to make me take notice and wonder. It seemed moer than coincidence would dictate.
