Lol instead of bad beats.. what was a great beat you lost to?
I just lost in 2 freeroll tourneys based apon I'd say the river. However both loses were to a much better hand.
Oh and by all means everyone may or may not have played the cards I had. It was my choice
#1 Beat.. I hold a Q,10 off suit.. flop shows
Ace(diamonds), 9(clubs) and 8(clubs)
Oh I bet 3X the BB before the flop to chase off the rag card holders. It works and it leaves 3 of us left.
First guy bets, I checked, next guy raises 2X. First guy calls, I know that the pot odds
give me a 10-1 chance of getting the straight.
Ok the turn comes Jack(diamonds). I am sitting pretty one would think. Yes I see the ace and possiblity of the flushes. Well 1st guy goes all in, I figure why not I have a straight. He either has Ace, with a strong face card or is chasing the flush. 3rd Guy also goes all in, I thought what is he looking for? Well the 1st guy I was correct on, he was chasing the flush.
Now the river turns a Jack(spade). I think I basically have this made now, no flush draw either way. We show and like I said 1st was chasing and I am like this is looking nice. 3rd guy shows and he has Ace,Jack in his hand. I thought to myself, what a lucky SOB. However I congratulated him on his NH and went on my merry way. I know everyone may have or may not have played it diffrently.
Now game 2 comes along... This one is easier..
I get Ace,Jack off suit. Once again I am late on the table, off the button. There are quite a few folds except 2 others. I make a bet of double the pot. 2 Now call.. Ok.. the flop shows Jack(spade) 7(club) and 10(diamonds). Well 1st guy checks, 2nd guy goes all in. Ok I know there may be 2 pair or 3 of a kind. Yet again I say why not? He shows Ace, 10 off suit. Ok now I am in pretty good shape one would say. The turn shows an 5(diamonds), one would say I am in still pretty good shape. Now the lucky part once again, the river flops a ten. I thought again, Son of a B I lost to the river again. How darn unlucky is that? I again said NH and went on my merry way
Yet I have also been the recipient at times of getting the luck on the river. So it does even out on occasion .
