Hi Everybody thanks for letting me join...So I'm facing a problem that I Can't deal with any longer! So I'm playing on Stars/FullTilt tournaments and I'm running into bad beats over and over it's crazy almost every hand now when I got pocket Aces I lose to a crappy hand like pocket 33s or pocket 99s or J8 or whatever 9/10times I've lost (I'm not kidding) I've lost to some idiot that moves all in preflop. I'm thinking "yes I'm gonna win" But lately I just now before the hand is over that I'm gonna lose even though I'm way ahead in every hand pref. I keep looking at the percentages but that does not matter, I should WIN 9/10 times. AND it's always in that critical stage just before price pool. I'm doing pretty well early in tourneys until that moment. So my questing is Am I simply playing too low stakes that I'm playing against not serious players? Maybe I play too well?!( I know that sound ridiculous) But you what I mean. How do u feel? what should I do?
Hey, happens to any of us playing online. Bad Beats and BOTS. I would say to triple bet AA/KK. Don't go all in until you see the flop. Depending on how many are in on the flop, your position, your bankroll, the flop itself, make the next call. You land a set and the flop is multi-suited, it's your baby. Time to play Trick & Treat. The flop lands all same suit or a pair (different from your cards), then you have some concerns to full house or flush. Time to be cautious. I am not a pro at how online software algorithms work, but I sometimes think all-ins against a player late in the game and who has more $$ than you, triggers the weird outcomes driven by the software. Not sure.

Playing at a higher amount changes nothing, some people are gamblers at heart.
If you are enough chips to be in the money and you see this is the case that AA gets busted way too many times, I would suggest folding AA's until you are ITM, unless you do not mind losing out on sure money..
I had a maniac at my table today who just had to rebuy from getting stacked. He was shoving almost every 3 hands. I knew i would catch him and i did when my Q7 hit a flop of KKQ. He had 44. It came runner-runner clubs amd he makes a flush.
I don't mind losing to cold decks (kk vs aa) because overtime i feel like i win as many cold decks as i lose.
Bad beats though... i rarely get my money in as a 10% underdog - and if i do, i never suck out.
