Hi, quick intro been playing poker for a few years on and offline with small bankroll hit a nice winning streak on fulltilt $70 to $400 then i seemed to get cursed dropped quite quickly to $250 so i cashed out and put it on partypoker as i liked thier shootouts anyways, i seem to be getting constant 'bad beats' wondering if theres anything i can do to cut them down, maybe im over playing pre/post flop.
I've been mainly a tourney player but cant seem to cash anymore so been trying cash tables but same luck:

obviously if you're getting sucked out on, you're playing well, so it's just bad luck. power through it and you'll be making money again soon

Wow! are you getting donky called and sucked out on. If they play like that at those stakes (one step above my current bankroll) it doesn't really give me confidence about moving up.

Seriously those are some questionable calls and some lame suckouts.

Other than the fact that you are bought in very short, you played all of them fine and you just got sucked out on

Of course he's bought in short, did you see those other two hands.. Man i'd have to go break something after that last hand you posted.

Just because he got sucked out on recently is no reason not to buy in for the maximum and cost himself future money.

You played it right but sometimes people like throwing money around it just sucks when they make out on the deal. Anytime you think you have the best hand bet it hard because more then likely you do. I myself hate ring games and always seem to play aginst a bunch of fish. I much rather take my chances with chips and the original set amount Im putting up for grabs. To much streak up and down for my game I like to see a steady raise in my graph and get pissed when I hit down swings. Best of luck!!
