new to online poker, help
I won a $5, 200 player tournament last night that won me a seat at a $100.00 buy in tourny tonight. I'm new ( started 3 days ago ) to online poker but have played live poker for 5 years or so & consider myself to be a decent player. The first 3 online tournaments I played in was a learning experience, in live games I tend to be aggressive, bluff & play not so stellar cards sometimes. Well it seems that online that is not an option, the 1st few tournys I kept calling the BB with hands like K,J suited Ace, 10 suited, pair of 7's etc & 99 outa 100 times someone would go all-in. I'd lay down my hand & someone ( or sometimes 2 or 3 people would call ) & I'd see..
Dipshit #01 shows Q, 4 ( not suited )
Dipshit #02 shows A, 7 ( not suited )
Dipshit #03 shows 4, 4
Wow I think to myself these guys are crazy
I finally catch a monstor hand A,A someone calls all in ahead of me I call they flip K,7 & catch a straight to the king! ugh
The tourny that I won last night I played tight as hell & just happened to get lucky that my good hands didnt get outdrawn.
Can I expect this kind of play in the $100 tourny, I cant afford to play in those normally so I guess I'm stuck with the idiots ( or people that have alot more $$ than me & can afford to lose a 5 or 10 tourny in 1st 3 hands )
Also anyone know the odds
of catching a flush ( spades ) King high with only 3 other spades on the board & losing to an Ace high flush?
This happened to me twice within the span of 5 hands
