How is it that all poker sites allow bad players to bust your premium hands time and again. Been in 3 tournaments 3 today on full tilt and had aa 2times 2 donks shove so you got to call they turn over a rag and k9 yet hit straights or flushes so out first hand then i raise with kk get reraised i call board comes 8 4 2 rainbow i bet donk shoves i call he turns over j 7 then hits runner runner straight. How the hell can this happen time and again on all sites?

If your chances of winning a hand are between 80 and 90 percent, they are not 100%. So your opponent will hit a miracle board here and there and beat your big pair.

your just experiencing a run of bad luck, dont take it personal because over a larger sample size you will see that it usually does work out to be proper percentages, and if not then your not playing your hand proper.

It happens and to often, but stick your A game playing the good hands and watch what tournaments your playing to. If they're Freerolls expect it and lower buyins are usually pretty tough to. The SnG's aren't as bad, but I usually don't play to many hands before the blinds go up to 100/50. This usually allows the every hand players to be reduced. I'm talking $1.10 to $5.50 SnG's with 18 to 45 players.

Yes that would be wrong. Those 10-20% hands hit about 10-20% of the time. You're just a sook and probably a bad, losing player, get over it.

G'day mate

The best way to beat the donks is to only play good premium starting hands and then no matter what NEVER try to bluff the donks because they are to stupid to fold.
I know losing to suckout bad beats becomes very frustrating. If you play well then over the long haul you should come out ahead.
Be calm and remember to breath.
Good luck to you in the future.

A little thing called randomness. Just because you're ahead, doesn't mean certain victory. Odds only work out in the long run, in the short run all you're left with is heartache and "ZOMG POKER IS RIGGED" posts from retards who can't grasp the concept of simple math.

Good day everyone Smile
A very happy new year Smile

Donks are the worst part of poker and sometimes good too as they pay you off well !!so the best way to beat them is to play only nuts or premium hands no mediocre hands etc !! as they are considered with calling machines with sick hands so bluffing is sick thing to do with them , always play tight and wait for good hands .

Good luck at the tables Smile Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

This is one of the best tips for freerolls and micros
and keep in mind the best starting hands do not always win as it happened to you

When you get busted out of a tourney its usually with a good hand and often a bad beat.
But if you think how you got far in a tourney you prob got lucky about 3 or 4 times or more.
So its more about the volume of tourneys you play so you can take those beats and go on with the next one.If you play only 1 tourney its hard to base anything on that.

also try playing speculative hands, i usually try to limp with any suited or paired cards because if i hit then i know im stacking a donkey because they will always pay you off, but remember just because someones loose, doesnt mean there always a donkey, could mean they are excellent readers and bet their hands extremely well with a nice post flop game Smile
