Play enough hands and you will see all kinds of stuff come out. I have played live and online and haven't seen a difference in terms of the cards dealt, other than one tiny poker site I used to play on. The only difference is that when you see bad beats happen with dealt cards you trust the integrity, whereas the legitimacy of online deals is easily questioned. My opinion!

I don't mean to be a butt, but any hand in electronice poker can happen in live poker. I've been beat with all hands and have won with the same hands as well. It all seems fishy though when it's on the computer I guess. Good Luck at the live tables, but your missing out in my opinion! Probably not worth a lot! lol

Posted by fathandsslei: yeah you're right never would you see aaa on a flop in live play, its just not possible is it?!
another post by a depressed customer lmao- wonder it those dudes are playing with one eye on the forum, cause i don't know how depressed you should be to lose a hand, and then after some time to log on the forum to decide to post this rubbish ok man now i am gonna say something that you will probably want to hear so badly- you are a brilliant player dude, it's just that the online poker is against you- they are after your head all the times- generally they use super account, rigged software and bots to steal your money- be careful

Happens... thats just it. Maybe its because online u always think the other guy is bluffing and then u make those strange call i dont know. i find myself also making those calls and sometimes im ahead preflop others im not. either way KK could easily be beaten by just A on the flop m8 and that was what ur opponent there was counting on. Probably u made beats like so also tons of times but it just hard to remember that when it happens to u.

What a monster did A2 off became… And, if he lost, he was going to be with only 1,500 chips, so his call was all but intelligent. And still he managed to send you home. Do you at least know if he won that tourney? I think you hope he did, sending you home with that hand…

It happens no matter where you play, remembering that some have a very wide range of cards even the dreaded donkey that plays a 27 OS in the hope of hitting a 27 on the flop against an AA, yeah it sucks big time but that's how some play poker.

First of all.......WTF? You really believe AAA on the flop is not possible Live?
Second, why go all-in???? Either 3-bet to 3.500 or 4.000 (or even call, which I would do, then the guy next to you might just call and extra money in the pot), leaving you a stack to play with and see if an A hits the Flop. If the guy next to you goes all-in, then ok, call.
Sure, you are taking a risk that someone will hit trips or better on the flop, but what are the odds?
Depending on the stack sizes, you might still have a couple of calls, driving up the pot if no A hits the flop. Don´t understand this all-in garbage all the time, minimizing your winnings in that hand with the 2nd best hand in the game.

It´s a easy isolation push to get a hu situation. And the rest is poker... With a minraise you are comitted and have two opponents. So the push is the only right way. But you can´t shoot the online dealer
Been beat holding kk quite handsomely the last 6-7 times. Usually by an A hittin the board and that reminded me of a stat. Approximately 34% of the time an A will hit the board so flipin kk means alot has to go right. If I miss the flop, left with a 1 outer or less. Then again, Negreanu says one should never feel bad losing with kk...'just know you got your money in good and got beat by the odds'. It's the nature of the beast.
It s a bad beat but you took it too far saying all that about online poker. It s all the same. You talk about KK like it s royal flush. Its just a good STARTING hand that gets folded alot. Judging by this thread i guess you never fold KK? Cmon man... In online poker there are by far more situations like this when you get called with crap comparing it to live poker but that's just one more thing to be happy about. In a long run you should benefit from it that is if you continue to play consistent. Every one of us acts that way when we get a bad beat but when you win a tournament you ll know it's cause of players like that who called you with junk numerous times.

Just one of those things you need to get over. A 3-bet would have left you commited and gave the chance of lesser hands to hit big, possibly multiway pot. Pushing gets (or should) get rid of smaller pairs and suited connectors.
I'm assuming this was either micro stakes (or someone who should be playing micro), a misclick or uber-tilt from the villain, which you can't really complain too much about because you'd be laughing had it held & most of the time it would have.
