I see a lot of bad beats whilst dealing. I see even more of them on the freeroll circuit, and every single one of them, regardless of being a digital ace on the virtual river, or even dishing out a miracle two-pair myself, it never fails to make me wince.
What makes me wince harder, though, is when a player goes on tilt because of it. Soon they whine and moan and play badly until they're felted a[...] Read more » Got Rivered... Again

aye it's funny that doubletop,it is never as bad losing on the flop as to losing on the river but the thing that gets me is that the riverbeats seem to happen more when there is more at stake,you know like near the bubble or if you win a hand and you are sure to FT,maybe it's just me.

You do well in not apologize for giving bad cards to table for someone. That always means you gave good cards for his opponent, who sure is appreciated for that, and you won't be saying "you're welcome" either after he thanks you for that!

But it is verry unbelievale, how many suckouts we can see every day at the tables. In additional with the rake it makes it impossible to be a winning player with solid playing against this massive suckouts.

yea, but the thing is it happens to just about everyone. And i agree, its hard to be winning player (for someone new like me even more so) but then again, so many people have proved it to be possible and have been winning players for many consecutive months, years even.
it just takes practice, lots of practice. and even more selfcontrol to go through hard patches, which most of us dont have and end up busting our roll once we hit one of two of those bad patches

Badbeats dont even bother me any more. They happen to me, they happen to you. I hate it only in torunaments if at all. The worst thing is losing a stack - the worst worst thing is losing AA preflop, to some retarded s**t like K9s.
