I signed up for FT and have already made 3 $250 deposits. The first one I had JJ and flopped 10, 2, J and went all in for about $320, got called and a guy sucked out a straight on the river and busted me.

Then I had A, K and flopped A, 9, 4 and went all in for about $400 and got beat by A, 10 when he sucked out two pair on the river.

Then I had K, Q and flopped K, 10, 7 and went all in for about $190 and got beat by Ad, 9d when he caught runner runner diamonds for a flush.

I almost wish there would be definitive proof that online poker is fixed then I'd quit. How can these idiots keep calling w/ nothing or on some bs draw? I NEVER EVER catch when I chase.

Are saying you depostied 250$ and then whent to the 200NL tables?
If thats the case you need to search some BRM articles.
Badbeats are going to happen bouth live and online if your playing with good BRM they shouldnt hurt u.

I was playing 1-2 NL. I just can't believe that people will call with nothing but some stupid draw.

Those are bad beats sindri, but 3 of them is no big deal if you aren't putting so much on one hand. Is your BR several thousand?

Well to play 1-2 you need a bankroll of AT LEAST $4000 (I wouldn't be comfortable without $6000 minimum). $250 should be playing .05-.10 at most.

The JJ hand is obvs. a bad beat but the other to hands....
AkvsA10 on the A,9,4 board is 86,7vs12.1% split 1.2 ok its a suckout but not so bad.
Then the KQvsA9 on K,10,7 is 80.9vs19.1% sucks to lose this but u will in 2/10 hands so.......
There obvs. bouth terrible calls from vilians.

Never mind im not going to hijack the thread and turn it into an anlysis.
I think the most important think here is that the OP reads How to Build Your Online Poker Bankroll: Where you Should Start and this
https://www.cardschat.com/f49/bankroll-management-71029/ .

And then search the web a litle bit for Bankroll Management articles.

I dont play much ring games but i whouldnt dream of going to the 1-2 tables with out a BR of atleast 5-6k.

Hope u whount lose your next deposit and good luck :)

This time I have 9,7 off and check on the button. The flop is 10, 9, 7 and I call a $12 bet. The turn is a 9 so I check raise to $200. The river is a 10 and I lose to a better boat. I've been playing for like 20 minutes each time. There is no way you can keep getting sucked out on this many times.

yeah, you can. and that's not even a lot of times. play for lower stakes or be prepared to lose your rent money.

Get used to it, that's internet poker. Play lower stakes, it hurts less when you suckout - or even better, play live poker.

I am moving this from poker rooms to Learning Poker.

Buckshot - as several people have pointed out above you can not deposit $250 and go straight to 1-2 NL. You should lose and you are losing. You do not have enough money to compete at that level and frankly not enough poker experience.

Do not be embarrassed or afraid to start at the level you can afford to play at.
