This is a discussion on downed by the river within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; What % of winning hands have you had lost on the river?. Certainly higher then winning on a ri:mad:ver
It's hard to say, but each of us thinks it's 70-80% of the hands. After analyzing my hand history, it turned out to be about 20%. It seems to me that it is because of our selective memory, where we do not remember how many hands we managed to win with gag, but we remember every "bad beat" because this is a variation that, from our point of view, shouldn't have happened. That why we think that most of our hands lose in the river
Hello, I really don't remember exactly, what if to go all in there are several times that I remember the most, and I think that almost 65% of the time I have won. One of the last hands was that he had KK and my opponent AQs, we went all in on the flop and the A came on the river, but hey, these are things that happen in poker. Cheers
It is not a real big percentage actually.
I talk about myself, apart from bad beats where you are way ahead of your opponent till the flop, and then a runner runner and you lose on the river.
But such cases are too few if you play correct, you will not want to go till the river and try to win the pot or fold the hand much before the river.
That is my input to you.
It does seem like some sites are alot worse than others when it comes to getting a bad beat on the river.Ive made several final tables in my lifetime,and from my experence the large stacks at the final table,seem to get the better odds of winning on the river.
