This is a discussion on I can not understand ? within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; Yesterday watched the game. UFC KO 1M GRT tournament FOR 0.50 $. A player from Ukraine, nickname vaniaaa_bo, the game is not like everyone else.
goal of NLHE is make the best 5 cards out of either yours or the board. on the 1st pic you hit 2 pair and AK did not have anything but a pair. 2nd foto you had Full house 777TT, and opponent has 2 best pairs 88TT, so you win. Hope it helps and good luck
I believe the op point is the starting hands for the villain were pure junk 29 and 57 and yet it looks like he was all in and won against AK and 88. Unfortunately in the lower stake tournaments there are many players who play like this hoping to get lucky versus playing with strategy. Itís frustrating to play against but over time strategy will always win. Itís the short term that sucks especially when it happens to you.
There are some players you can never understand. While there are times they will win a lot of chips early on and have a monster stack, they are just as likely to go out in a blase of glory well before the money. All you can do is play your game and take there chips if possible.
