man, this happn to me everytime, it's frustrating, playing for hours and hours and losing by weak hands, by amateur players, the game variance hurts a lot of good players, who built their chips with sacrificeOnline 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>
I don’t worry about bad beats, I know that today I lost, and tomorrow I will win with the same bad beat.I like your optimism! But how cant you hate bad beats?
It’s like reading my thoughts exactly. The day variance takes a holiday.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!
Last time I lose against 65o while holding KK.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.
