It seems pocket Kings are my achilles heal. Why do they win only about 30% of the time. Because anyone with an ace is going to call a 3bet preflop - regardless of the size. Shove - yep they still are a callin. 200bb shove pre - yep A/4 sooted binks the ace to scoop the pot.

Of all the hands we play - which hands do you think you are losing the most money with - in tourneys mostly, not cash games. Mine is definitely Kings.

Just happened to me in the CC ACR FR tonight! TTs suckout on the river. Seems like no matter how I play them - slow play - fast play - unless I luck into a set with them - they are as crappy as pocket duces after the flop. Oh well at least I'm breaking 50% with AAs .

a very controversial hand, sometimes I win a lot of money with it, and sometimes I lose everything)

pocket Qs are always my downfall.There is always an A or K that comes on the board when i have them.Seems like i lose every time,even though i know i have won with them.

Lol,

Just busted out last night with KK vs A5os. It happens. Poker is really about consistency. If you put your chips in with a better hand enough times you will have a profitable game. Keep plugging away.

The most losing hands of all is undoubtedly ak, because the players do not know how to play it. For me the most difficult hand to play is jj, it is not strong or weak so it is on the edge.

When I get KK and raise with it there are usually Ace on the flop and somebody calls me. Cannot say that I always loose with Kings but it happens quite often and the main problem is very difficult to fold with.

it happens to me aswell... it seems that when i have kk an ace usually appears on the board. also with pocket queens and jacks i have lost many hands even against smaller pairs in which villain gets lucky enough to hit a 2 outer and win the pot.

Pockets are always good pre flop, but an ace card always has the potential to ruin a good day and in the end its not over until the last cards been dealt. Plus you know theres always the chance someone is going to call with absolute rubbish and hit what they need.

In the long run, it is okay for me with all the high, mid pairs, I am in highly positive with all of them, the pairs shows negativity - not all of them - from 99.

In short run, on those level, in those tourneys, what you play, too, my AA burns all the time, not all the time, but when it is really important, same with AKs, when it is in the rebuy phase works okay, with normal probability, but when I am in the last 3 tables of any tourney, it s*cks like hell. Especially, probably you know, most of the time, you are in pre-flop allin with cards like that, in that phase.

Just from the last 2 days: both situation on FT, once 4 players left, almost everybody have the same stack, AA vs AJo and he got the straight on the river.... next day, AA vs 33 in heads up, and he got the 3.... really annoying, drives me crazy... as the 'big', would rather call relevant money is there, does not matter i win 70-90 bucks or 300-400, and I have the patiance to wait for cards, or situation, where I have 80-85% chance for win the hand, and still continue to burn.... in that heads up, i also lost A8 vs K8, and one more 80% for me hand... and I wonder why I have almost double 2nd place than 1st....

Before yesterday, with AK hands, both suit and offs, - I have counted - from almost 50 hands, I have won 1, I mean ONE played hand, at least 15 was pre-flop allin, at least 7-8 against A with smaller kicker.... got few walks, that's it. Do not mention the countless backdoor flushes against me....

So at the moment AA and AK the worst.... even it should be the best....

In online poker forget the variance! Even probability, sometimes better to focus what you can understand from the method of RNG. Looks insane calling 2 allins with 95o, but it happened, and I wasn't wrong, just tried to focus for the RNG, how the cards are dealt, what runs going on etc. As the probability s*cks 6 days out of 7. Of course the 7th day of the week covers everything, but still annoying to have no connection to live poker....

For me it's JJ. I always raise with jacks pre-flop unless someone raised in front of me. Then I just call. If it offers itself, I C-bet. It mostly does. So I often bet at least half of the pot again. Even if it sticks to your pair of jacks, it's often still a respectable hand and you have to find out where you stand. So I raise. If someone reraises me and there is an ace on the flop, for example, I know that I am defeated and can fold without problems. Most of the time the jacks are expensive because I often have to fold or lose in a showdown. If I win with JJ I often have to flop a drilling.

AK is my favorite hand. I often win even though I missed the flop. I raise preflop and c-bet after the flop. Often everyone folds and I can win the pot even though I haven't hit anything. In addition, it is often the case that my raise preflop is called by players with KQ or AQ or AJ. If an ace or king comes on the flop you can win a lot of chips. Mostly even your opponent's entire stack.

Just a little KK update

Just needed to clarify - KK is my favorite hand. Most peoples like the AAs but I prefer the KKs. They just win more for me - it seems.

But the past 2 months or so - I think I've been about 35% with them when all in. And THAT AINT GOOD YO!

Well looks like the past 2 days the variance has been catching up with the past 2 months.

Went 7 for 7 with them yesterday.
Propelled me to two final tables where I ended up 5th and 8th. Eh can't complain much about that. Had KKs back to back - ended up doubling the first hand - and busting another to collect about 30 more bb.

Today 9 for 11, when all in. Nice!
Helped me along to make 4 final tables.
3rd, 5th, 5th, 6th. Not a terrible day.

Thank you pocket KKs.
Please remain loyal - as I have with you.
