Happens often when playing online. You just need to wait out when the "random" algorithm changes, always does sooner or later.

I actually find the lowest stakes a little frustrating for this exact reason. However mathematically and some people don't want to hear this.....your pocket kings are only a 19% favorite to win against aces. If you flop an open ended straight you have about a 35% chance of hitting it. What this also means is even if you have pocket aces and you go all in with a guy who has J10o... and the flop is A Q 9 rainbow....even though you have a set of aces (1 in 212 odds of being dealt) you still have about a 35% chance of losing the pot to a guy that before the turn has absolute air.

Always try to remember things like this. I lost almost 1400 BB's yesterday in a matter of 80 hands. I missed I believe 6 All ins where I was wildly favorited and just other hands in there. Blew up all my winnings from the last 2 ish weeks in 80 hands. It happens. That's poker.

If something doesn’t work for me, it means I made a mistake somewhere, incorrectly assessed the situation and underestimated my opponent, and therefore overestimated myself.
