It's hard to let Aces go

I tell myself that I can let them go when this happens but sometimes I just dont want to believe that it happened.. Oh well it cost me my chipstack and I've learned.

Anyway I raise it to $8 at $1/$2 NL. So I get one caller. Right there I knew I was gonna get cracked because I'm supersitous like that. And he likely would have called with a pair.

Then I get raised on the flop so I had a good idea he had flopped a set so I check/called through the rest of the hand. He showed down a set of deuces.

Now I'm fighting at the Limit tables for a while, in which I made that buy-in back but got a couple more beats I gotta recover. My profit has fallen in half for the week after a few tough beats. (set of queens beaten by set of aces, flopped king high flush other player flopped ace high flush, flop the nut flush then river gives a guy a full house, etc etc) At the $3/$6 Limit tables action is hot and heavy and if you have a hand you'll get paid off.. Atleast at the one i was at.

Putting someone on a set on the flop is stretching things.

Post hand history and let us analyze?

Okay I'll see if I can dig it up, I'm not at home right now but I play on pokerroom.com I dont know if they save them to your hard drive or not.

If I recall the flop was 8 5 2 with 2 spades. I wasnt sure if he was on a draw or what, though i felt set just because it was the worst case scenario with that board. And that also reminds me of a short stack that cracked my aces. I had about $500 and he had $60 so I raise it up, I'm in the small blind and the big blind calls. He flops two pair. He had 8 duece suited. and got 8s and 2s. But atleast It didnt cost me much relative to my stack, then I made that back plus some later after flopping a full house. That was earlier in the week when the cards were hot but now they are running cold.

If you think they have it, they normally have. Go with gut instinct/unusual delay before and/or with betting, etc. thats normally effective

yeah in my experience it seems when you are raised you are beat, unless you have something like a straight against a guys set. That would be nice. But i bet he would river a full house anyway lol.

lol, folding AA on an 852 flop is pretty impossible unless (a) villain is the rockiest rock that ever rocked, or (b) we're talking pretty deep stacks (25bb not being anywhere near qualifying as 'deep').

On PokerRoom you have to go through the "hand stats" box. I think you have to enable an option so that your hands get written to a database on your hard drive. You can use the hand histories from here or take the hand number and stick it into the website for a nicer looking history.

well I believe when you raise it up to $9 or more then you are likely called by someone with a pocket pair unless it's a real loose table. One exception a few days ago was when someone called me with the 8 9 of spades and bluffed an a busted flush/straight draw. it wasnt easy but I called because even if i lost the bet I was far ahead for the session and it wouldnt have busted me and I could have rebuilt with what I would have had left.

But for this session it happened to me twice and I was frustrated. Previously I had a pair of jacks busted by a set of 9s. Had to reload then get by aces busted by a pair of deuces.
