  • You had the best hand going in that is the best you can do. He cought up it happens. The lower the staks the more it happens. I personaly dont put my stack in on top pair I think more times than not depending on the situation if you are called or are calling you will find yourself at a loss. Better luck at the tables.

  • I have no solid strategy for playing top pair. Did you think about what the player might do after your 500 raise and if you did that, did you intend to get your chips all in (call his push). If you dicide the player could push at you and you decide your going to call you should have pushed insted of raise. That being said sometime you have to fold to a re-raise even with top pair. last thought there is so much more to a hand than just your cards.
    Was the player agressive or passive?
    how many chips did you have?
    how many chips did he have?
    What were the blinds?
    how many players?
    what type of tourney?

    you dont have to answer the questions just think about them while in the hand. Try to anticipate what the players still in the hand will do after your action.

  • Ok ehat to do when this happens?

    AJ suit on SB form all players are fold expect me and BB, a raise BBx4, he call.

    Flop is A 10 5, i have A and i wait one card for flash, i raise 500, he call all in, i call. His cards are J and Q and it isnt suit, on turn he got K!

    Should i fold hand like that?! What strategy to play? 🙂

    Really in this moment i am pissed off, tilted all along 🙂 today i lost 4 times like this or simillar situation…i am starting to asking myslef is there too many super users or is just luck?
    When this happens 10 days on hands like this one or simmilar i think theres no strategy. Sometimes bad players have abnormal luck, thats only i can say.

    Well theres one more thing, i think in live game this situation doesent happens so offten like in online play. I am sure in that.

  • One more thing. Bad beats happen to good players more than bad players because good players get there money in ahead in the hand. Ask yourself if you would make the same move to get all in again, if the answer is yes let it go you did the right thing. If the answer is no rethink you strategy. Just a thought.

  • Bad beats are part of life as a poker player. The way I deal with them is to simply say “nh” and then take a breather before getting stuck back in. Don’t let it get under your skin, and remember, you havnt won the pot unless you have the nuts…
