so far today i have managed to lose $100, thanks to jokerstars miraculous rivers and telepathically telling people to call with s**t
its so fucckin sick!! f**k knows how them bingo players manage to have any cash, thought id play higher stakes but seems they are worse bingo players than micro stakes!
Posted by saynothing: Hi, I read your post and its sounding like you had a bad night, this happens if you cant handle it take a break or you will probably tilt your entire roll away, so take a break
i can handle bad beats and i know about variance but this is just pure all out bingo playing! and its pissing me off that i have played at least 10 str8 games and im allin with best hand and get rivered in all of them...cash games are just f**king atrocious.
idiot ukrainians calling all bets with any 2 cards, 4 nut flush draws in a row, and i've hit nut flush draw on flop and they are calling down with nothing and hitting on river etc. Jokerstars just has it in for me tonight and really bad!

One thing you got to consider when moving up in stakes is the size of your roll, I mean a few bad beats and your out of the game, mean while your opponent probably has a 200 BI roll and dose not care to lose a few buy-ins..... cash games are all strategy, and the most important part is making sure your roll can handle the bingo players and bad beats, that is the first step to CRUSHING these bingo players eventually
Well, you've had a lot of bad luck today. But I think bet too hard at the last excample (out of position and QT ain't an excellent hand). Of course "lil-kull" played horrible, so I'm sure you'll win it back next time!

GRAHAMY... I sympathise. I can see why you played the weay you did, and were winning all the way to the river. Your opponent clearly thought his QQ was good value, as did you, so your calls were probably ok. However, the crunch comes when he has you with the decision to call all in! Was you QQ on its own good enough to go all in? Probably not, although you had invested some already into the pot, you let your life lay on one call and lost. This was probably a bad call, depending on what you knew about your opponent. Did you think and try to work out what hand he was on and apply it? It may have been better to fold his all in call and live to fight another day, particularly as he was showing strength.
Bad luck either way.....TAKE A BREAK and come back fighting another day.
