Dealing with overbetters
Hi there, I'm new to the forum. As i have mentioned in my introductory post, I'm new to poker and I'm still a total fish, so I apologize beforehand if I say something really dumbtarded.
So, basically, playing sit&gos and a few freeroll tournaments, I keep running into the same problem I don't know how to deal with: extremely aggresive players. They bet WAAAY more than the pot, sometimes even they o all-in before the flop. I know I have to be tight and not fall into the bog bets without a good hand, and I never go all-in preflop, however my problem is:
I play very tight, and only play good hands. I tend to do the standard 3 times BB when I get a good hand, and either call or re-raise if other player raises depending on whether have a starting hand or a made hand.
It has worked well a few times, but most of the time this tight playstyle makes the blinds eat away my stack, as I seem to have horrible luck and have rags after rags as hole cards, or the other players will gradually raise to ridicolous levels pre-flop, and when the flop comes and none of my cards hit, I have been left with so few chips I can't really fold, and for some reason their crap hands always make a flush, a straight or a full house, while my KQs go to the dumpster. Worse, I tend to be having the most probabilities to win in the flop and turn, only for them to get the card they needed to win in the river.
Sometimes it seems the cards ****ing mock me, it may be my imagination, but 50% of the time I fold pre-flop a 7-2, the flop is two 2s and 7...
So yeah, I don't know what to do. I'd attribute it to horrible luck, but there are people who manage to consistently win microstakes sit&go, so they have to have a way to fend off that bad luck that I don't know about.
Sorry if I sounded stupid, tell me if you need hand stories, etc... and I hope you can help
