If you do well and profit a good portion on your 90% of hands that are played and work out then you should be accumulating your bankroll/account to move up a level and work there.
I have actually found that these situations only beat
me if they make the first move, ie, i have trapped them... they move all in on the turn, i call with the top nuts on the turn, they always hit a bogus 'only card in the deck' that could possibly make them win. i know this is totally situational depended to make a judgment from your end, but i assure you they are called bad beats.
when i dont give them proper pot odds
to call, thats what tops off the cherry in my opinion, oh and another thing, they always become very chatty from that point! which really hits the spot when i have nothing left to play with!
as for level moving, i do well up to the point of a bad beat(edit)which doesnt come from a level change merely off the chance of running into a gambler who is "lucky"(edit), this is why ive come full frontal about this topic on a forum like this one!!
..Plus i have read similar things on this site alone...
ah well, i suppose your point about the gambling really sums up this topic up! just wish the best odds would be better for me than the statistics make out!!
