Hello ladies and gentlemen! When playing poker, sometimes in this or that game situation, it seems like something tells me how to act, but I don't always trust my feelings, but you must admit it's hard not to call all-in with a KK hand, I mean preflop I decided to conduct an experiment, yesterday at PokerStars I went to a cash table $ 0.1 / 0.2 and started experimenting and now the case presented itself, the villain goes all-in preflop, knowing how he plays, I assumed that he has AA or KK, but KK is unlikely, I have A, 10s pot is $ 2, something tells me: "Call and win", I call, and ... from villain AA, for the sake of the purity of the experiment, I did not take a grand payout and won with straight 6-10, villain also did not took the grand payment, I felt a little sorry for him. And what is it? Accident? Coincidence? Sat down to play SPIN & GO $ 0.25, two villains all-in I have 6.7o, I understand I need to fold, but again I: "Call and win" , experiment so experiment, my call and I take the pot with two pairs, play further, villains raise to 1/3 of the stack, I have A, Ks, I usually play in SPIN & GO I go all-in, but here: "Don't play, you will lose", you must agree with such a hand you can't help but call, but for the sake of the purity of the experiment I put all-in, and ... ... I lose to pair 7, villain has Q, 7. Many may think that I came up with this, but this is true, but whether it is a coincidence or not, my bankroll will have to check (ha-ha-ha)
Best regards, Sergei.
You reminded of the time I was playing live in North Walsham (one horse town in out in the sticks of Norfolk) and as the cards were being dealt I remember clearly hearing a voice in my head "imagine if you knew when you were gonna get aces" and I tell no word of a lie- I looked down at AA.
I bet there were tells after I glanced down that time!
My inner voice always betrays me, whenever I design these cards are good, play these are the winners, play on the river, your flush or straight will come out, and nothing better will pay attention to my brain.
I have had verbal out loud arguments with my alter egos on several occasions. These arguments never end well.
Sometimes Iím absolutely sure Iím going one way and the words completely opposite come out my mouth. So frustrating! When this happens I need a long walk and take a break
