I got a bit more into poker in the last few months. I am still no where close to say that I know how to do it, but I play the smallest stakes, usually tournaments, and I would say that I am above average for that level.
Anyway, I usually play on pokerstars and in the past few weeks I got a feeling that I lose way more coin flip and other situations when I am in advantage than I should. But as people usually say that you only remember situations when you lose and not pay attention to all that you win, I started keeping track of how many times I win when I am behind and how many times I lose when I am in front.
So far I have lost 50 hands when I was in front (50% or more) and won only 25 hands when I was behind (50% or less). Basically, those hands were one of the players involved in a pot went all in, either preflop or later.
So now I have a question, if there is just something I should live with it and it will even out over longer period of time, or is there anything I can do to improve that?
This should be treated as an integral part of the game. You can reduce the likelihood of repetition. To do this, you need to analyze your game and the game of your opponents in specialized programs. Which will help you understand what you are doing wrong, in what situations you make mistakes.
It is very likely that you occasionally come across the concept of bad beats. This implies such a development of events when, being almost a winner, the player loses miserably to an opponent who is just lucky, and he takes the bank in the presence of the most unfavorable combinations of cards. It happens, and it's a fact!
As your skill improves you will find that you can easily fold those coin flip situations and put your chips in when you are ahead. Especially deeper stacked earlier in a tournament. I don't like being all in unless I'm at least 70% favored to win, though it's amazing how many times you can still lose when you are favored 8 to 1 or better. But that is poker.
