Feel free to vent we all need to from time to time.....:motz: Unfortunate part of the game is when we lose. Remember when you knocked me out in the Noble 5 dollar tourney last weekend? Remember my response? I said my fault I immediatelly realised my mistake in how I played the hand. Bad beats are simply part of the game. I bet if you look back at the hands that have you so steamed you will find some that you could have played better. Just analyze the hands and learn! Trust me you will learn more from mistakes than you ever will winning all the time! Although I freely admit to breaking something everytime I can't figure out what I did wrong and still lost!:puke:

I read somewhere that a good player will experience bad beats more often than a bad player by definition. Because a good player won't be playing bad hands to begin with. If that makes you feel better...

There ARE bad beats. It is a part of the game. When you are sitting on a made hand and your opponent hits runner, runner on the turn and the river with 4 outs in the deck, that is a bad beat. When your opponent has a high-card hand and 2 outs, hitting a miricle river to win against your made hand, another bad beat. They do exist. How you handle them is the key.

It bears repeating, that there are a few factors that contribute to the seemingly exponential number of bad beats online. First, you always remember the bad beats you take like they happened one hand ago, whereas a win by drawing out goes unnoticed and is chalked up to luck, smart call, etc. Second, you play a ton more hands online than you do live. If I was taking one or two bad beats per hour (just a random number) I could expect this to at least double with the frequency of hands seen in online play. Another factor is the low-limit card chasers online, its almost impossible to run them out of a pot, giving many more opportunities for a crappy player with a crappy hand, to draw out against you. Its a numbers thing. You have to take the good with the bad. With this increased frequency and poor play by others comes increased opportunity for you. More hands=more chances to win hands. Bad calls by the other guy=a statistical advantage for you if you adjust your play accordingly.

We all take a beating now and then, cold cards, bad calls, bad beats, whatever the reason. Reason doesn't matter, adapting to the situation, however, does. You said you would avoid these games that you view as bad for your bankroll and stick to what is profitable and that's exactly what you should do. That's adaptation. Taking it on the chin, the obligitory post here bitching about it, then putting it behind you and moving on. Going elsewhere and taking someone elses money. GL.

Hi

Yea, sometimes the beats seem to unbeilieveable, and some people's run of luck seems amazing, but it happens on line and in live games, trust me....but you know what they say...poker has no memory, and it all even out, we'll all get our run of luck and share beats...how else would we be able to tell stories.....GL in the future....

If they are drawing out on you hand after hand then try and get in there with the nuts more often, just play about 10 percent of your hands when someone seems to be on a so called lucky streak, and eventually youll bust him for playing marginal hands. They cannot always draw out on fourth street and the river especially if you have the top hand on the flop its mathmatically impossible and you should win well more then you lose in the long run.
