Worst thing that happens to me is when my internet connection goes bad and the green bar appears trying to find a connection!And trust me i get that a lot and its so frustrating Aww crap! Aww crap!

Then when the connection comes back it feels like I am loosing my pace and my cool Confused Confused

As a result don't know why I feel not so confident for a bit Question Question
My crazy brain still plays with me Confused Confused

Losing connection is always annoying expecially in the middle of a good hand. Had it happen a few times the last couple of weeks after flopping trips or hitting straight ect.

Losing connection is something that is nerve racking. Especially when you are doing well in a
tournament. And if you get the connection back soon, that fine.
But when you are picking up the phone to call your Internet service provider, this is when
i am fuming and they get a had full of it Smile

I also agree with toronto. That i very annoying also.

There are a lot of thinks that can be annoying, The first one for sure would be losing connection when you have a very good hand, second like toronto said and i always wonder how they are doing it, third one is the same donkey that will raise all the hands with any cards.

Will stay at 3 for tonight but i could have more. Big Smile Big Smile Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap!

I lost connection when I hit my Royal flush at the river!

And the pot was so big.I was not able to call the last big bet!

This was the sickest thing in my poker life!

The guy had Full house with Aces and won all the money!

This is the worst thing that will happen to you in poker!

And it happend to me!!! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap!

One thing that annoys me lately is the lack of regular freezeout tournaments on offer at peak times by most sites,it always seems to be rebuys or turbo or hyper or late reg which is far too long.
A personal opinion but I like a simple tournament where a hundred or so players enter,the tournament starts,no rebuys,no add ons,no bounties,no level 10 late reg,no super monkey ante invasion,just regular blind levels and chip stacks and the tournament ends after everyone is knocked out. Smile

Players that are:
• Relentlessly limping every single hand from any position as it is a routine
• Ridiculously slow
• Stinking like a ****
etc.

FFS, go somewhere else.

Well krasen it had to happen to someone Smile
I have been in a table a couple of times and i have witnessed this thing with other players.
And the funny thing is that after losing their connection, their opponents winning the hand
sometimes, by just betting the minimum Smile.

The one thing that bothers me most is the time the family will be home. This time interferes so much with the karma around playing great poker. It dictates the type of game that can be played and the moment they are due to come home my mind gets screwed. Maybe I should change my identity and go live on an island and just worry about rubbish Internet connections!

i find Bad beats are worst can happen to me
i know that it is just a common answer
and everybody is complaining about it
i just don't care about losing the money
but when i lose it when i am ahead , it just hurts
because you were able to make your opponent put all his money-in while he was losing
but still you lost

What bothers me a lot is when I go all in with aces or something realy strong, and some douche player call my all in with 72 off and he hit 2 pairs or set, or even a str8... Also what bothers me a lot is when I got pocket aces on big blind and evryone fold preflop... that happend a lot to me....

Hey arsenej1.....I have played some of the multi table SnGs but it doesn't have the same excitement of the tournaments.I have no issues with other types of tournies,I quite like turbos and bounty hunters but I would just like a few more freezeouts available.Maybe I should look at the SnGs with a couple of hundred players and see how they feel. Smile

I must totally agree with you av1966, when I our internet connection gets broken during a tournament this is by far the worst thing imaginable. It happens quite often here because we are using w-lan.

For me it's a bad beats. When you sure you're a "winner" and trying to inflate the pot, but then you lose.

Or when you hold a good hand preflop, but someone bet's too much for you to call and you fold it Sad
