Perhaps because you may be doing a lot wrong? :eek:

I gotta agree with mrsnake here, though - you played this fine. Chalk it up to bad luck and just be happy that there are fish like this J8 player.

Out of curiosity, Shark, what buy-in SnG is this/do you normally play? And you did nothing wrong here, and your opponent made a couple really boneheaded plays and got lucky for it. It happens. A lot.

QQ - Ok. Your raise was perfect. Flop was terrible for your ladies, hell for any large pocket pair. Your continuation bet should have been around 300-350 with that flop. In this case it also serves as a probe bet as well. If you get raised, with that flop, you’ve already lost, just fold. It’s tough, but live for another hand. You still would have around $700. or so to continue on playing solidly, which is fine with 20/40 blinds. In this hand when the flop hit you knew you were indeed beat & your continuation bet shows just that, unfortunately it pot committed you with only $60 (???) left. Although your donk opponent still needed help, most players would have already had you beat. Just fold.

Last hand was typical internet donkey luck chasing flushes & hitting. To top it off, he raised preflop with that garbage because "it was suited."

That's terrible. There's ~1000 in the pot and we've got ~1000 left, with 2 others in. It's an easy shove on flop. If we bet 300-350 and get shoved into, we are beyond committed... trivially easy call. In $11 SnGs we'll often get shoved into by 44, A7, JJ, TT, 99, 88, 87, I could go on. Betting 350 (or any amount) here and folding to a shove is just so incredibly bad.

To be honest I'd have to disagree with the majority of the above posters (QQ hand). The blinds are 20/40 and you have committed 1280 chips on nothing but an overpair. The first "information" you retrieve is when you have already commited 95.5% of your stack.

Play your poker more in-amongst the cards would be my advice. Place much much less weight on starting hands and much more weight on what "hand" you have when (at least) the flop is dealt, preferably an even fuller board.

combuboom I strongly disagree, if someone reraises him after a continuation bet of $300, he’s far from pot committed, in fact will have more that half the stack he started {$1,340} with $740. Of course he’s pot committed if he beats $980. leaving himself only $60. That bet screams desperation. Tons of players call with suited or gapped connectors in this spot and he can be 90% certain that he’s beaten if he’s reraised here. Obviously a read on his opponent helps immeasurably. Seems his read told him that Sgtjail12 indeed had him in beaten or terrible shape. Why else would he bet so big leaving himself only $60? Sgtjail12 was the big stack with 3 x’s the chips as the next biggest stack and could definitely call a raise of $300. to take a chance on suited connectors or the like with little or no damage. Your asking him to marry a big pocket pair with an incredibly unlucky flop - 7s 5c 6h, with no part of a draw in sight. That’s terrible advice!

It’s definitely a tough lay down, but poker is filled with tough lay downs.
