online poker can be frustrating because you play a lot of hands so you see more results. Variance is a popular word thrown around. No matter what though, certain things get under my skin. What gets under yours?

For me it’s watching all these players at my table hitting flushes left right and centre but when I’ve got a suited hand, the flop comes missing my suit completely. Not even a back door chance! <angry monkey noises>

The most frustrating thing is the poker laws and not being allowed to play poker on many sites, other than that the most frustrating thing in the world of poker is having a lock on the hand, getting chips in the pot and then realizing that you have been disconnected midhand😳.....

I feel ya. The time I got disconnected with A7s and by the time I got back, timed out with the nut flush. Luckily only a free roll so not as bad as losing actual cash.

For me, the most frustrating thing about online poker is when calling stations incorporate stack by stack because they call every smallest hit all the way to the river, no matter how big the bets are. And then hit the card often enough for the second pair to hit the flush or the gutshot.

The most frustrating to me is to be totally card dead during a whole tournament. You can not take a single risk because you are dealt only bullshit. Fortunatly it doesn't happen very often :)

The most frustrating thing is that in your head when you lose a hand with the highest chance of winning you will think that the game is fixed and that will distract you, or that you may have a problem with the game due to the server or your internet.

The most frustrating thing about poker for me is when I don't notice they I'm not focused on the game, so I start to lose hand after hand :(

He most frustrating thing for me is seeing players going all-in preflop. Most of the time they are doing it with 69o, seriously I'm asking myself what's the point doing that knowing you are underdog, and spoiling others hands.

The worst thing about online poker is when I lose on the last street, when you have a premium hand and a better chance, and your opponent has a trash hand but gets 2-3 outs.

Ending on the tournament bubble is something that bothered me :unsure: , losing with a better hand at the final table isn't cool either due to the jumps in the prize pool be considerable from there. [it never is, but in that case, you got there after manny hours]

What frustrates me is that sometimes when I have a good hand the site freezez on me.

I think the most frustrating thing for me is trying to build a bankroll, what frustrates me is I know I play well and I’ve won quite a lot of small stakes or satellites but I seem to run bad when it comes to games which would give me a good starting bankroll and the thing is I play the same, I don’t play any different or panic when it comes to the bigger games, so it seems I’m stuck in a loop..I think patience will pay off eventually or so I hope..all it takes is to run good in a couple of games and I would be set so I’m just waiting on my lucky break!

I just get annoyed when I don't play well.
for the rest, what happens after that, nowadays, nothing affects me anymore.
this is poker.

For me its watching players limp to sitters. Its the only play in poker that hurts all the active players at the table.

Hello.
I think there is only one frustrating thing in online poker. The disconnect during the game. Everything else can be in offline poker too.

I am more interested in the ace on the river, which falls out very often in online poker

When you play poker, you should feel pain. This pain is usually caused by bad luck, which can come in many forms. There are many examples of pain in poker, but you need to understand that many of them are beyond our control. The faster you learn identify those situations that are out of your control, the sooner you can start working on accepting them.Money Pain is essential to our ultimate success. We can't make that extra profit without bluffing, and we can't bluff without losing from time to time.

Tons of runner runner four flush boards on pokerstars when you flopped a set. A cold run always sucks.
