I was playing the leaderboard tournament on 888 and i had a little stack near rebuy period.

With rebuy and add on i am pretty sure that i would have made pretty good. Until i am on BB with a pocket 8. no bet before SB who just limp so i decided to shove and he called with A Q.

And here is the fun of poker the board made a quad J and he won with is aces. Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap!

Big Smile

Recently in the critical phase (10 seats for bubble or less) I had less than 20 BB so I shoved QQ on the SM with only one limper in the table.

He called and Heads up showed he had AQ off.
The flop came: AAA

Hey Pinotte!

Of course this kind of spots can be very tricky. I just folded 66 on the BB when SB open shoved a 16BB stack on me. In this kind of spots I know the most likely situation is either a race or he has me dominated with a bigger pocket pair. Sure, he could have a smaller pair but it's a lot less likely.

Blind vs Blind spots are common in MTTs so you have to pick your battles. I don't know how many BBs you have but your shove is questionnable here because he could be trapping with big pairs too since he does it with "just" AQ. In this case your opponent was trapping you so when you shoved he thought he was ahead. Pretty bad play on his part though. I think you would be better off simply raising to 3x BB in this situation and see what happens from there.

But luck there. It is one of the moments that you are begging your opponent, gets
a matching card. At this situation the ace with 4 Jacks, so you could have a split pot at least,
rather than losing the hand Smile
Better luck in your next game.

How often do you see the board create a quads all on its own? Not very often so this is probably a very rare occurrence. It doesn't do much for your 88 and don't you just hate it when your winning hand gets counterfeited by the board. This is probability at its very worst. Keep enjoying the game though.

These sort of hands are really infuriating and always put me on tilt. Whenever your hand gets counterfeited it is very annoying. You just got very unlucky and you shouldn't be too hard on yourself for playing the hand.

Yes so fun hahaha Tongue I had many of such funny hands in my career, so i only now play in freerolls and sometimes small stakes, nust for "fun". I hope that online poker is not so much about fun in the future because I have not a lot of money to give to sites to continue this fun play, better just offer normal ppker with no fun button to press

Oh yes, some of these days at the poker table, playing with motivation and a good feeling and than came a dirty suckout and destroyed all of them. And after a rebuy and addon it was verry bad to losse all chips with this kind of board.

Too bad you had to experience such a horrible bad beat pinotte, i would be left totally mad about this situation and maybe even start to talk bad words at the other player, even though i am a polite person at the tables. Best of luck next time, just don't concentrate on this too much Blink

I have noticed more players tend to limp in from the small blind (with a wide range of hands) than before. Maybe it is a trend.
Small-to-medium pocket pairs are relatively strong starting hands in No-limit Hold'em, but these types of hands are still vulnerable to being counterfeited. Better luck next time.

The reason good players will not raise on the small blind with weak/marginal holdings in general is simply the position.(And generally speaking people are a lot better at poker in 2017 than they were 10 years ago so more people do it) SB is the worst position to be in post flop, you're always first to act and even pre flop you could easily get re-raised by the BB. When I play a hand from the small blind, no matter what it is I'm probably gonna play it either very agressively or very passively. I'm not gonna be calling bets or betting small amounts to bait people in because you can easily put yourself in a tricky spot if you do that out of position.

Good luck

Lot's of things happen in poker and sometimes they are very bad to us and it looks like everything is against us, but it is important to keep yourself positive and results will come your way

Yes Wo you are right about that in poker there are bad times and good times and all players have to expect those bad beats , bad days or maybe even bad months. But if you try to improve, study a lot about poker, watch videos, read all sort of articles then your results will be a lot better
