This is a discussion on 1.1 progressive KO pokerstars 1min ago within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; first hand and often me down and I had a hunch it was full. Bad Beat I have every day around 20..Grrr:eek::confused:
I think I could fold here, you don't have much invested compared to the blinds and it's early.
TeUnit: "You have 2 bbs left, I would call with a Uno Card and a Ken Griffey Jr. Card and be happy getting it in. With the money already in the pot you are getting great odds to call and if there were antes its even better."
In my opinion, everything is fair.
From the beginning, your opponent had the best hand. And you played with cards that were better to fold. If you want to win, you have to be patient and wait for strong cards.
Thanks for posting the hand Alexblefer. It's an interesting one.
The hand has all the hallmarks of the freeroll-microstakes game play: 5 players in a family pot; everyone limping or checking; first to act seemingly taking a random 1/2 pot bet at the pot; and the best hand limping and minimum betting on the turn. What's not to like?
In a way it's unfortunate that you were in the BB with such a marginal hand opp and with no additional cost to you to stay in the pot. If we calculate the gross equity of each player (assuming 2 players had 30% ranges and two player had 20% ranges), your equity preflop was ~15%. On the flop, it was still only ~26%. If folded on the flop, you would have dodged the bullet.
The way the button with JJ played the hand, it was nearly impossible to put the villain on a narrow range, and the way they bet the turn when checked to them further disguised their hand. (I did find their min bet into such an inflated pot a bit suspicious though.) The Jc turn was the killer. If you could've have gotten away on the flop, you would have been pretty happy. However, the turn was increasing your equity against a 20% & 30% range.
Overall, I wouldn't get too upset by this hand. It's just poker. We all need to review our flop strategies, and this hand provides a good opportunity to do so. Good luck on the felt.
In the range of your opponent trips, a flush draw or a good pair to the river, he expects that closes potential flash you. River trips on the range which improved to a full house, overpriced AA are not unable to reset or flush with K is very difficult to lose with flash A. You played well, but you're out of luck. You are more likely to win, because a full house comes rarely.
I must say the set is a pretty strong hand but not the strongest in poker. You neglected this circumstance and the presence of two peaks on the board, you decided to collect. Putting just a pot of sweat, you seem to demonstrate weakness regarding the cards on the flop and as a result received two callers, which is exactly what you wanted. After the thorn, the villain no longer had a choice, as he invested too much in the pot. Be careful in the future. Good luck!

Yep, classic microstakes on Pokerstars... the guy just limps with JJ from the BU, such a regular play and it so makes sense that he has exactly JJ there... I swear, I got pissed just by looking at this. I figured he would show 33,44 or some dumb J8 or 84 hand.
And I don't know what is worse, Villain showing JJ after that limp, or that I expected Villain to have such sh*tty hands like 84o and J8o
It is a easy fold on flop. You have a pair with lower card on table, you dont have position and play against four players, after you 2 fold but you did not know this was going to happen.
If you pay flop, you cant fold turn, pot has 525 chips and you need put 30 chips to see another card. If show another club card you have nuts, but when double 8 you could raise but if villain came back all in, you should fold.
This was not a bad beat, you were back all the time.
Considering only you and him, you had this percentage of winning the hand.:
Hey man. I can imagine how you feel. Try understand you Will win much more than loose playing this way. Dont stop, you are doing the correct bets
LOL.. It hurts a lot.. I had many of these sittuations. I think is not bot mate. Its Just.. Many New players.. Beginners, gamblers,stupid ppl... Many ppl with many different way of thinking (my brother is one of themhe goes all-in with any combo with Ace haha) but nellorossi83 told you.. You keep play this way. You Will do more winning hands than lost.
GL at table.
I'm taking a break from poker indefinitely .. many sick losing hand ..
incredibly angry !!!!
Yeah, you need a break.
I don't want to sound rude or disrespectful, your stats look decent, you've won some 0.5-1$ tourneys, but my recent notes on your at PS say that you're a tilted donk according to the way you've played your hands in CC freeroll during past few weeks/months.
Tilt happens not only because of bad beats, but also because of deep games and high wins, you've won some tourneys since start of 2019, and I guess that you've got tilt problem now. Get rid of it by spending time at nature, away from pc and poker, and I'll change my notes on you )))
btw this post of yours also proves that you're on tilt. when you'll look at it with fresh mind - you will realise it.
