Two Hands in a Row
I had an interesting thing happen to me earlier, that I did without thinking much about it. I was playing a 27 man SNG, I believe I was around 3/10 at the time this occurred. A hand that I was not in was happening, and one of the players doubles up with pocket aces (his double up now covers me). The next hand I'm UTG with KK, standard raise, and this same player 3 bets me, and before I pushed (because I'm not folding KK) I remember being like "does he have AA? Nah, he just had AA" and pretty much excluded it from his range. I obviously then lost to his AA.
I'm not really complaining about anything in this hand, this is standard, but it got me thinking that under different circumstances, this thinking could potentially cost me. I'm more or less curious about if other people randomly has this thinking (I remember awhile back I lost to a set that a player had two hands in a row (hitting trip 6's on the flop), and had similar reasoning like this one). Obviously the previous hand has no affect on the upcoming hand mathematically, but psychologically, it just seems natural to exclude because of its rarity. I'm hoping I've finally learned my lesson (which really only comes into effect post flop, most preflop plays are probably still correct with the omission).
Anyone else have similar stories?
