The amount of times i've been up against pocket pairs this week is...well...phenomenal !!! I have lost huge stacks and lost some great positions in mtt's because of those bstrds with their pairs and they always ( it seems like ) hit their set,honestly you would need to have seen it to believe it. This week really is the week of the sets,against me Any one else get problems like this ?

I was more on the other side of variance this week. Hit a fair amount of sets with my low pocket pairs, and a lot of top pair top (or good) kicker with may AK, AQ type of hands. But this was lomg overdue.

i am starting to hate pocket pairs it seems everytime i play , there is always an ace on the flop .. it is becoming scary I had QQ against A10 small stack and AJ other player i was so happy only one over-card .. and they had only 2 outs but ace on the flop as usual Same 77 VS A7 .. again Ace on the flop so now i would much prefer having AK than a pair like 1010 .. i know it is wrong but that is how my luck works

It is always a nightmare when they hit a set and it is very difficult to get away from if you have a good pair or two pairs,if we are folding top pair every hand just in case they have it we won't get far.The most we can do in that situation is to try and keep the pot small and hope the next time it is us that hits the set V aces.
