Hi all did anyone ever play at riverstars i mean pokerstars. i just got done playing in the $2.00 nl holdem tourney at 10.30 start time at pokerstars.and i had a pair of kings one guy raises the blinds another guy reraises and i am thinking wow action. so the one guy after he raised i go all in one had a pair of deuces the other had a pair of queens,flop comes up 5 9 7 i am thinking wow this is good i hope a deuce or queen dont come up,on the turn an 8 comes up then wouldnt you know it on the river comes up a 6! straight for all.split three ways i am thinking wow i have no luck but it could have been worse o.k a few hands later i am big blind it comes up something 10 4 7 the bets a couple hundred dollar bet i got 10 queen and the next card comes up and does not help either one of us say it was maybe a 9 i think and the guy goes all in i am sitting here with top pair i am thinking what does this guy got a straight? so i call his all in,wouldnt you know he has a ace 4 o.k makes him a pair of 4s and i got top pair and im thinking i can double up now o.k on the river wouldnt you know its another 4 which makes him three of a kind and knocks me out of the tourney this is why i call this place RIVERSTARS and it seems to happen alot to me have a good night all and thanks for listening to my bitchin. player name at riverstars bigboyal bye all

Yeah tmcards...its frustrating and its happening everywhere, but where pokerstars is so big it always seems to be given that name...a pokerstars play. I even have a thread started "when pokerstars hit home".... where i had a situation similar to yours, its hard to play poker these days without avoiding it

I've played at pokerstar now and then. I like the freeroll at first but there jsut too many people on the site. So i play at Jetset instead with less people and a lot more chance to win some jetsetpoints.

TMCARDS,

Ok, so the first hand you explained your opponents got lucky. However, splitting that pot with KK is better than a Q or a 2 coming off.

The second hand where you held Q-10 with a 10-4-7-9 board, I would not reccomend calling an all-in bet with Q-10 unless you were ABSOLUTELY pot commited. Q-10 is not a 'great' hand in this position. You are beat by WAY too many hands. If your opponent had a K-10 or even a 10-9 or 10-7, you would have lost this pot. Yes, you lost to a 5-outer when the cards were flipped, but your call in most cases will have you as the underdog looking to hit a 5-outer.
