Now tell me how can I think all this isn't rigged.

By the way if somebody could point me on errors I made (as I probably did) on these 3 hands he will be welcome. ;)

The mistake you made was not going to make yourself a 'nice cup-of-tea'. (prior to hand 1). To summarise, poor Tea Management.

Maybe is it my poor english but I don't understand this.
Is it : 1) Why the hell have you played these hands ?
or 2) There is nothing you can do about it.

I think it is 1 as I believe my play was bad on the first and second hand. :confused:
Do no let a poor french player doubtful please :p;)

I must admit I thought you were joking basically because JTs is favourite over your 77 and Against AKos, 77 is slightly more powerful, but still it's coin flip territory.

If all your chips go in pre-flop (as in cases 2&3) then how the board plays out is irrelevant really. IE 77 is still an underdog to JTs regardless if it wins through hitting a jack, or hitting a backdoor straight.

With No.1, you are betting the turn on a semi-bluff. When he flat calls, it suggests possible draw. Probably better to check-call when the heart comes.

Also, with the blinds as small as 30 chips, it is overcommitting to play 1010 chips pre-flop really with any hand bar aces.

Thanks Welly. Sadly i was not joking. I felt something wrong on the way I played these hand but wanted a confirmation of where exactly the mistakes were. ;)

To be honnest I think for 1 my bet is a little weak.
As I saw him as a very tight player I might think he has a game already done and didn't put him an a draw.
But there he would probably have raised. :rolleyes:
So I should confess I was a bit lost after that turn. :confused:
Then the river card was the worst for me.
Giving me a good hand (straight) but giving him the flush if he was on a draw.
When he raises on my bet I was 90% sure he hits his card but with a straight I couldn't assume a fold there.

Basically the second one I think I read him good : his 3* BB let me think about something like Ax or figures or suited connectors.
Then again my mistake was to make such a raise. I know he will call me anyway. He did so all the hands I saw him play.
But something like 2 or 3 * his bet should have been better... maybe a flat call and let see what could happen on the flop.
After that you're right it is something like 60/40 maybe (oh man I should consult the % before playing next time :D).
But I also put this hand because of the weird way he beat me.
But hey that is poker. I can't complain about this. ;)

The third one is just there to show that when you're not in a good trip it seems that things goes worse and worse.
With 80 left and a pair I've got to give it a go. :p
Be beaten with 77 against any Ax I can assume.
Just one A that is OK my hand was not that good.
But 3 A in the flop wooow... I must say I was just laughing in front of my computer telling me "OK I'm not gonna make any bucks today with such draws" ;):)

Anyway thanks Welly i've got a lot to learn. And also a lot of work to apply what I know at the moment it happen on the table.:rolleyes:

I'm confused
First hand, there is a bettor and a raiser in fornt of you, why don't you think one of them has the flush? With all the draws on the board and that action there is a great chance you are beat, fold to that action.

Second hand, why in the world are you going all-in with a pair of sevens. The best you are here is a coin flip and there is a good possibility there is a higher pair that dominates you. Call and see the flop. Then you can represent the ace or fold if it looks like villan has an ace. There is a greater chance of villan folding after the flop to a raise than pre-flop.

The third one, you had to go all in with the 7s of course, did you expect the AK to fold? I suppose 3 aces coming on the board can never ever happen in poker, it must be rigged, lol. The odds of three aces coming out are exactly the same as 2,4,8 or K,9,5 or any other combination of cards that are left in the deck.

Face it, you missplayed 2 hands, don't try to blame poker being rigged on your mistakes. Learn from them and get better.
