BLOG: Got Rivered... Again

Tags: blog, blogger The Prince of Freerolls
Blog post published on Friday, March 14, 2014, written by The Prince of Freerolls.
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

The river beat is always the hardest to take and to overcome. If you get out flopped it never seems to hurt as much as being rivered, even though the outcome is the same.Strange old game!!

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!

The old lucky river is indeed the hardest thing in poker to control on an emotional level for the affected player...

I guess this is alo one of the reaons for which pokerstars got such a bad rep for bad beats compared to other sites, somehow the worst bad beats on river are there lol

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 Tongue

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.

Riversong

Now the boulders
I know they heard me cry
But they were stone-faced
And they stood aside
So I went on at the river’s pace
With my eyes closed, I thought I heard them say

You cannot catch the river though
It makes you think you can
It trickles through your fingers
While you hold it in your hands
Just like I am

ooooooooooooooooo
river
ooooooooooooo
river
ooooooooo
riveeeeeeeeeer
