This is a discussion on What hand do you get beat by most? within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; For me - it's a set, usually flopped. I'm kind of like a little kid - if I don't see it, then it doesn't exist.
For me - it's a set, usually flopped. I'm kind of like a little kid - if I don't see it, then it doesn't exist. If I have one card to a set (i.e., trips) then the hand I lose to most often is a full house. Same thinking.
Pocket pairs in general usually beat me. I play cards that haven't flopped on the table in a while. This might mean two low cards. If there is a higher pocket pair, I need to hit both cards to win then it is usually trips for the other player.
Recently I've been hit by a runner-runner street or flash. For example:
I open A♠A♣ and he call from K♦5♣, the flop is 2♦3♥J♠, he bets, I'm all-in. He calls and closes the street.
I'm with K♣K♠, doing 3bet against the opening of the MP. He calls with A♥3♦. flop 9♥4♠Q♥, he all-in, I call. It closes the flash.
I think I just have no luck, but this is temporary.
usually my natsy on the flop beat on the preflop and river, the opponent reaches and not bad, if I have a set at the opponent's street, if I have a straight, then he has a flash, but it happens and Vice versa, it's a game,there is nothing surprising)))
4 of one suit on the table. So many times I would win a hand. But that fourth card of the same suit shows up on the river. And I do not have a card of that suit. And I was winning the hand. And the river card improved my hand. And I still lose.
If I have a set, I usually lose to a higher set. In the case of a straight, I usually lose to a flush. Or a higher flush of I have a baby flush.
And recently, I had J9 and I flopped my king-high straight (this was during a 5/5 cash game) but the flop came some thing like this:
Q 10 K
See the problem? Now there were two players after me with one betting and the other calling so what did I do exactly? I folded my flopped straight and there weren't any hearts on the turn or river and one of the two players still in turned over 6 9. It wasn't the first time I dodged a bad beat before I even saw it.
Whenever I flop two pair it feels like I lose to anything.
I know that feeling all to well. For me it seems like i lose to Ace-rag a whole lot lately. 4 flushes been happening, slow played overpairs beating my underpairs on a safe board etc...but always seems like when i have KK or QQ that someone flatted with A7 or A5 and they always spike top pair...and when i have em dominated AK or AQ and most of the time even AJ...they always hit their kicker and im done for. Pretty frustrating at times. Got busted in the same tournament twice last night holding the dominant ace, quit playing there soon after and just enjoyed the rest of the evening relaxing. Im slowly improving at this whole not tilting thing lol
