When those bad beats just keep on coming.
OK, I'm preaching to the converted here but I'm gonna post anyway just to give myself a break from the cruel game.
I've been doing a lot of 6-handed $10 SnGs at a 3D site called PKR recenly. Over the last month or so I've had some degrees of success but today I've been knocked out into 3rd place for 3 times in a row.
Nothing too unusual in that you say but, everytime, my all-in pre-flop bet was called by inferior hands. Twice my adversary hit straights while my big Ace with big kicker looked on helplessly.
Now while getting that "ere we go again" feeling as my opponent made their hands (yet again) I am comforted by the fact that it is precisely THAT sort of bad play by my opponents that have got my BR relatively healthy in the first place.
I think this is one of the MAJOR hurdles to get over in online poker - THE SAME TYPE OF PLAYER WHO OUTDRAWS ON YOU AGAINST THE ODDS
, ARE THE SAME TYPE OF PLAYERS WHO HAVE GIVEN YOU THE HEALTHY BANKROLL IN THE FIRST PLACE. THEY SHOULD NOT BE HATED, THEY SHOULD BE WELCOMED WITH OPEN ARMS!!
Anyway, that's my therapy over, I'm going back to the tables.
