Nah that's just random/variance Smile
I mean it'd mean it would have to happen to others too, however 9 people can't have the same hole cards, what you expirienced was just random Blink

I have had that sometimes, or your not in the hand but the next hand you have the cards that were flopped or something. Just random I guess.

Often if I have more than one table open it seems I hit may hand on the flop, but on the wrong table. Big Smile - Just coincidence, but happens alot. lol

Nah, once you notice something like that it starts to seem like it happens all the time. It's just because you're looking for it, but you're completely disregarding the times it doesn't happen.

It is surprising how often this seems to happen. I have lost count of the amount of times i have wished that i had this hand the previous hand. I think it is probably not that much of an occurance but it just seems like it

I have already stopped counting the number of stupid threads, that has pinotte started.

But there is a lot of them and they tend to be more and more stupid...

Hi guys,in response to ddblt1970--I think that is not a fair answer to give as we do not know anything about Pinotte and he may have just started getting into his poker and maybe,just maybe,he thought a poker forum was a good place to ask a poker based question.
I know this particular question was not going to make it into the next Phil Ivey strategy guide,though it could go into next "101 things you wanted to ask about Poker but do not have a poker forum to ask"book but maybe it was a question that had puzzled him for many weeks,maybe he wanted to chat with other poker players,maybe he just wanted 10 points.Give him a chance without bringing "stupid" into it.
When I first read this thread I didn't think 'this is rubbish',I thought 'Wow,for a 70 year old the punctuation could be better' but then I thought maybe he is French Canadian,in a hurry or,as I am frequently,drunk.
As John Lennon once said "give Pinotte a chance".
Back to the thread---Are you the only what?

Hmm i think you associating random probabilities to outcomes that are just random. It is a gambling syndrome like saying the ball has not come out on black for the last 7 spins and you bet on the red spin because they have not come out in the last 7 spins. At the end of the day it can still be either black or red because the probability will be the same and it is just a random event not connected!

It's the power of suggestion.

When you think too much about some particular case, that particular starts happening more often.

Not because they actually are happening but because you are actually "looking" for them.

The randomness and arbitrarity of poker might be the answer. But it's poker, and that's why we love it.

Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap!
