Not no more.Lately on bovada I have seen some crazy turn and river cards come up. Such as this hand here Im in the sm blind with K7 off everyone fold til a solid player in late position pushes 4 times the blind k hes strong or has poket pair I call to see the flop with big blind still ahead of me he re raises to the better he puses all in I fold with rainbow 2 7 A on the flop I have to fold which normaly for the right price I would stick around. I dont need to I have a good chip count turn river come I cant beleave it K K . I been playing really aggressive to have the chip lead in this tournament.Did I make the right choice I could of easily called but lost a little less then hafe my chips. Going against pocket AAs and QQs. MADE A MISTAKE WHEN I SAID THAY PUSHED ALL IN BEFORE THE TURN IT WAS AFTER AND THE BET WITH THE ACE OUT THERE I FELT THE TURN WOULDNT HELP WHICH I WAS WRONG IN THAT ASPECT. BUT I WAS RIGHT ON MY READ TO FOLD BEFORE THE HAND CONTINUED. WHAT WOULD HAVE DONE? I did open with a bet to test the waters. And then got out of the way. People on bovada been playing more aggressive with the promo going on be careful friends. CASH GAMES OR TOURNAMENT/SnGs???
If you're winning cash games, then stick with them.
With your little example there, the reason you're losing SnG's(if I could understand correctly through the misspellings, no punctuation and CAPS) is that you are making calls that should be folds. Who cares what the flop/turn/river comes out after you fold, you should look at the hand as if it was a good move as the cards have been shown up to that point. 72o could hit 777 on the flop, but that in no way justifies calling anything preflop with that hand.
If you were flat calling k7o from the sb, you're making a bad play the majority of the time. You are OOP for the rest of the hand, your hand is subpar, your villain showed aggression preflop, etc... FOLD!!!
