It's definitely normal to lose with the best hand, even if you have fewer chips. In poker, luck plays a significant role, and sometimes, the cards just don't fall in your favor. However, in the long run, playing the best possible hands and making smart decisions will result in a profit. So, it's essential to focus on making good decisions and not get too discouraged by short-term setbacks. Keep playing and learning, and the wins will eventually come. Good luck!

All in pre flop cant give you 100% you can just make a decision and live with It , even AA vs AA and 3times i list because of the the flush for the other player so its just shit and we cant do anything about it.

I can say that it is common to lose in poker . luck and strategy both play a significant role in poker and it's always possible to lose, even if I have the best game and fewer chips than my opponents

Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose that's just part of the game

It is important for beginners to immediately understand that the first does not automatically mean the second, i. having the best hand, but losing bets, you can be left with nothing, while the player with the worst hand, but a different strategy for a particular table, will emerge victorious and take the pot. Under the "specific table" is meant the predominance of players with an aggressive or, conversely, restrained style of play, which determines the passage of most trades and the average pot played.Regardless of your position at the table, you should always play these hands unless you have been raised before. If you are facing a raise, especially if someone else has called or reraised, it can sometimes be a mistake to play something other than aces and kings.

AA is only a pair, although it is the strongest one.

Bad beats are a part of poker, especially online poker. The “best” cards are no longer the best cards once you’re playing online
The other night I was passing by a $1/2 NLH table on my way back to my trny when I heard the dealer announce "all in". I turned and there was this player whom I had just knocked out of the trny 10 mins earlier was all-in w/AA v KJ on a 10 7 J flop. The turn brought a J and then a brick on the rvr. The beats are everywhere.

Live or online, bad beats happen. The problem is that you only remember the bad beats you lose...you never remember the bad beats you put on another player and take all their chips.
