Went through my hand history after my first three years of playing and the biggest leak was A Q from early position. Was an easy adjustment once I knew. Just over played the hand and got murdered from being out of position.
"Luck comes and goes but knowledge stays forever."
I can not say, that I have a bad cards.
Rather, I have a bad game.
And often a bad game happens, when I play without patience.
that is so true. although i have curse cards too. but im the same way as far as being very impatient at times. i have to learn to pace myself with the table. by that i meam push when i should and fold just the same.
What is your Cursed cards? My are AQ i almost always lose with it.
Any top pair usually make me poorer! I'm already starting to think about the phobia of some cards ... Although all this is nonsense and prejudice, at least I think so) Just there are black and white bands in the game and nothing more! Do not bother, all that you lost because of failure, still come back to you) Just do not think about it, just solve the tasks that you set yourself))) Yes, luck with you and the right decisions will come with you!
I have 52 cursed cards, 2 at a time. I tend to play low limit games where there are lots of bingo players. While I play a tight aggressive game, there are frequently many players in the pot and one always seems to catch their 'miracle' card on the river.
No. Although when I first started out playing online I'd have to say AJ was.... but it wasn't so much 'cursed' as it was 'me overplaying & over-valuing it when hitting TPTK hands' with it.
I'm glad I don't have any 'cursed hands' today. I heard about this one guy here on CC who hasn't won with AA in frigg'n ages (I forget how many times he's lost with it... but it is like just soooo much the odds are apparently in the Billions to 1 sorta thing). < & some people even believe that sh1t... Can you believe that? lol
taking advantage of this topic, wanted to ask a question, if I have A-X (X = <T) no hand, is it worth to pay to play?
That is a good question. There are several parts to the answer, in my opinion.
First - Ax, where x is suited and =<10 is worth playing from any position, if there is no raise before. If there is a raise, then Ax, suited or not-suited is an easy fold. The only exception to this 'rule' is in a tournament when the blinds are large and the player's stack is small.
Second - Ax, where the x is off-suit. There is only ONE time these are worth playing - a tournament where the blinds are large and the player's stack is very small.
Third - Far too many players have that 'Ace in the Hole' mentality, where they will play any two cards if one of them is an Ace. Consider these players to be putting 'dead money' into the pot and take them on whenever you have a hand worth playing.
AQ is not that tricky, you can still fold it more than others. AK on the other hand...
When I started playing poker, AK was like my favorite hand. I considered it purely premium hand. I would call like any bets on flop, turn and some times even on the river. I just couldnt fold it. Not after long, it became my cursed hand. I started searching about that hand, and I found the slang for AK, which is Anna Kurnikova cause it looks better than it plays. Now every time I wake up with AK, I remember the slang and play it as a drawing hand rather a premium one.
I do not have cursed cards, I have periodically some pairs that when they appear I have a negative feeling about them and it comes true!! If I play them...I lose but not all the times!!! The same happens the same time with some other cards and a positive feeling which comes true if I play them and not all the times too. I think it is math sequence that's all!
