This is a discussion on Losing After Folding Winning Hands within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Here's the situation:
You decide to fold the hand of yours for many reasons.
The result show that you'd win the bet.
The next round comes
Now,you 've got
Ofcourse its coincidence. Previous hands has no influence on current or future hands Its like saying that in roullete there is red color 10 times in a row. So the next time it finally has to be black right? But its not true at all. Its still 50/50 every spin is "new" game and has nothing to do with previous ones. There are still same numbers of red and same numbers of black on roullete Its same with cards.
Every hand is independent. The KK you're holding this hand has no idea what happened last hand, and it doesn't care.
This is all in your head.
What is possible is that you're tilting over losing the previous hand, and that's causing you to play your KK badly. Be mindful of that. But in a vacuum the outcome of the previous hand has absolutely zero bearing on your chances of winning the following hand.
I'm talking about a statistical phenomenon.Of course every hand is independent.I didn't mention what was the hand before and the reasons you've decided to fold(what if it was AKs).Finally, KK was an extreme example.Think of head or tails.How many times can you win in a row?If you throw the coin too many times you will get a 50/50 result of winning.Poker has a larger range of opportunities than head or tails in winning or losing of course,but in the end win or lose the bet is just the same.
Don't think there is any math correlation between folding a small hand just to realize that it could have won. In a lot of cases you do not see the hand thru as its done before the river is delt? As for losing with a monster could be related with a bad read or lack of attention to the board and player behavior.
