I don't know if it has been asked before, but because I have that one hand I remember, I wanted to know if it's the same for other players as well.

For me it was in a 215$ hyper tournament on PS (Sunday Supersonic). The game was going for a bit and for the first time I felt I have a chance to burst the bubble. I got JJ and after a I made a 3BB raise. I got two all-ins, both players covering me. after using all my time, I folded. Both players had AK and of-course I would've won. Later on the blinds went up too fast for me and I lost before the bubble.

It was more than a year ago and I'm still angry at myself.

My first Final table of fulltilt BRM torny and everyone limped in so I limped in with K8s thinking everyone else had rubbish too(I was chip leader so could play around) basically turned into a million chip pot and the guy who beat me had KQh and trapped me by limping in. I finished 5th.

Other hands I regret are flopping a set of something and slow playing it to make more money and they always somehow hit something to beat me. I dont do that anymore.

I definately regret some hands, including one big 300+ dollars pot on 888 poker...

Basically there was a three way pot, one villain hit nuts str8 on flop, another one top set on flop, i middle set, i could have hit quads on the river lol

There's been a few hands that I played then immediately afterwards regretting how I played them....but I can't remember the details...

A problem I've been having lately playing a LOT of hands is NOT believing what somebody is doing, and subsequently calling, raising,...or re-raising, only to find out they weren't bluffing or playing a weak hand with a LARGE bet to scare folks off... In some cases I've caught them messing around,...but lately it's been leading to my demise... Confused

Don't know aboutr any specific hand that I regret the most, but my overall play on the later stage on this years MicroMillions event 66 .. It was a $2 freezeout with almost 14k players and when it got down to 3 tables I started playing way too tight and went out 17th Sad The big money jumps started from 15, then 12, 10 and then final table so my biggest payday was pretty close ..

Thanks everybody for your share. Seems it's not just me, although some of you right about a way you play regularly, while others do have a certain play they remember.
I thought about why I remember this hand the most, and beside being the most expensive one, the thing that annoys me the most is that I ALWAYS play jacks on a hyper tournament and the only reason I folded was that I was scared because of the amount of money on stake. I told myself then I'll never change my game and be the "scared money" on the table.

Well, you probably have the image of a Non-believer on your tables. I had the same problem, and I work hard to be more of a "believer".

To do so I developed the "swear and fold" technique - I swear the guy (not online, just out-loud) but fold the bet. I still lose hands on not believing but much less than I used to.

i'm sure everyone has such hand, maybe at first they don't remember it, but after digging carefully in your locker you can find one. for me personally such hand was back in the old full tilt days- i was playing in the 100K depositors freeroll, was one double up short of the money (min payout $100) - i was dealt AA's went all in, got a caller...and lost Angry he had AK & rivered a str8...almost kicked the pc Big Smile

Many hands I should have played diffrently .....only one hand I really regret......

September 2012

Ever since I started playing online poker, there was one tournament I realy fancied playing, the sunday million on stars. As I didnt want to pay the entrance fee, I always tried to get in there through a sattelite.

The second sunday of september It finally worked. I got my ticket through several sattelite rounds for 2 Fpp's and I was extremly happy with my 215 dollar ticket.

All set on sundaynight, to play my best poker ever. I went of with a brilliant start and doubled up in the first round. From that moment all seemed to fall in my advantage and my stack kept growing and growing. At a certain point I was even in the top 5 for a while.

When the buble came in to sight , I was in 16 th position and I prommised myself that I would cash and therefore would fold at any doubt.

I got transferd to another table, on wich the chipleader and the number 3 were seated.
with 3 places to go to the money, I was still in 16th position and then it happend.

Seated on the BB I get AA ( both red), the chip leader on the button makes a 5 bb raise, I reraise potsize and without thinking a second he shoves his stack.

Normally I would have made an instant call as I had AA, but I started thinking that this could be the biggest screwing I had in my poker life..... But Aces so I couldnt fold and so I call....

Cards get turned and he shows KK ( both black). Then the flop came and showed an ace so I was already starting celebrating ( I would be the new chipleader in the sunday million, my dreams would come true). When I looked up at my screen, I saw the square with U are ended at that place , so I didnt understand. When I looked the hand back , I saw that besides that ace (spades) there were 3 more spades and I lost out to a runner runner flush.

Before the hand my gut feeling said fold it , get itm and see what happens. I knew I was getting screwed and still I called.... I should have listened to my feeling and even that I had the best hand possible at that moment, I should have mucked them..

I was really disapointed and did not play any poker for over a month. This hand I will never forget and regrett for the rest of my life.

Even tho it looks like a bad beat, I should have folded , listened to my feeling and not risk that much pricemoney. Folding aces would have been a master move at that moment, but I wasnt capable of it. Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap!

1. How is it possible to fold AA heads-up pre-flop. I would NEVER do it, regardless of the situation. Folding the nuts is crazy play.
2. I would put that hand in the unluckiest thread - it's a sure winner...

3. Definitely a hand one can never forget. I don't know how you can continue playing the game after such a hand...

More than one. And it will keep happening.
And usually it is the ones i fold after some thought and hit the nuts that hurt the most.
And even more when someone bets with bad hands or bluffs it Smile

Of course we all regret calling/folding hands we play/don't play. Just had one right now (stupid call, seconds before the bubble). I just forget about them after an hour or week at most. It is just that one hand I keep remembering from time to time that I still regret, although it happened more that a year ago. I will probably keep remembering it for years.

At least I see others (Thanks Mies! and sorry) that had it worse than me. Smile

mies730 I disagree with you, mate...
U will not receive such a chance that often to double up with Aces on a tournament.
Against every card you are something like 80% in favor. In poker if you don't go for these shots, then u will never get to the stages of the final table money.
Even if u had at least 60% in poker it's worth calling imo.
I never have a bad feeling about going all in with Aces preflop (of course not against all the players in the table but against 1,2,3 playes), because it's Aces, and statistically it's the wise decision to make.

It was an opportunity for u to go for the higher places on the tournament and you took it.
Never regret on it.
(Maybe u wanted to win the minimum amount of $250 or smthing, but believe me u would be much more happy to win first prize of 100K+)...

Hey Raf....


I do agree with U completly, as all U say is true.

The reason why I regret playing this hand, is that I didnt listen to my feeling. I knew before I called the guy that I got screwed by stars. There where the odds let me down every now and then , my feeling usually is right. At that moment when I was closer to what I hope to achieve then ever before ( or after Big Smile ) I should have listened to my feeling and not risk everything.

But to be honest if I get in the same situation in the future I prob. do the same as it is close to impossible to fold them.

The first ever mtt I won was on FT and while close to the finaltable, I folded a few big hands preflop ( no aces btw), my pal who was watching told me I was mad.... but play showed I made the right choice.... I would have lost the hands and now I won the tournament and over 1500 dollar.

I know poker is an exact sience based on maths, but there is also a psychology aspect to the game

Oh and Rafiko will U be playing the home game??

Gever, you don't have to be angry at yourself. The lay down of JJ wasn't such a bad choice, if you're all in against two players. Have done it couple of time too myself. Sometimes it works for the good and sometimes it doesn't. It sometimes can depend on your feeling (as mies said).
