Another way to solve badbeats is playing worse, i mean, if in poker on-line "always" wins who have the worst hand, push with 24o, 47o, etc ... So if you lose you'll find poker fair but if you win, you'll feel very good!

4XBB with KK?? ok if blinds are like 2/4$ u raise 4bb thats ok. if u play 0.02-0.04$ u raise like 10 bb plus 1 bb per every player in the game fo example u got 4 opponents u raise 0.5-0.7$. U ask why?
Here`s the answer: the smaller blinds the less respect will opponents have for your raise. Right?
ABC poker doesn`t make sense if u play with donks..go in with premium hands raise hiiiigh. Play wisely with speculative hands like 57 off suite (sometimes it is good to call 2-4 bb raise when you`re in BB seat and pot is like 25bb) even when You have middle pair after flop u can always check-raise on turn or river just to check your opponent`s playing style.

a reraise from bb on me with a 234 board..man easy fold.. learn how to play and fold when u got owned by a rag hand. if u control that and the emotions and bankroll managment u will make money with abc poker. i got broke too, so thats why im here ^^ but u never see me moan about a badbeat. next time it pays if a donk calls witha rag hand(actually a lot) and one thing i learnt now for sure is bankrollmanagment!! if u play 2% of it u can eat 5 badbeats and still not broke, before u know u win a tourney/sng and 5badbeats are back in the bankroll.
u say u rather go to casino's now..well actually the low rake poker is like a casino and allmost have nothing to do with poker as it is more a gambling game then a skill game. so why not go crazy on the low rake and move up with the lucky profit to the higher mid rakes where the respect 4x raises and fold rag hands? anyway i know how u feel. every poker player bin there, but if u wanna improve your game stop pointing the finger to others and point it to your self. trust me it works
goodluck and have many goodgames

Posted by mazas: u must push all in with AA or KK or QQ because if u get a chance to see players flop they can catch some strenge hands and beat u easy so all in and nobody with 5-6 or more low cards call u so dont fish and takethe real lead
good luck at the casino tables but there also u can be easy overtake by river
Sorry mazas, but that is a great way to steal the blinds!! The point of holding AA or KK is that you can get more chips by actually playing them, rather than going all-in, "hoping" somebody will follow. Of course you have to be able to throw them away once in a while when you know you're beat. Kind of off-topic...

Posted by Kristan: Whine whine whine - want to hear something that makes you feel better - I had 400$ downsing in 25nl cash withing 3 days aprx 20 hours of play. I had won 8 sessions before that started and overall im still up with 11 sessions more than half of what I lost.
You are talking about a tourney here? freeroll? whats the buy in? is it played with br mngement or you put your whole bankroll into it? is it worth whining at all losing 2 hands in one tourney?
I came today 3rd in pokerstars SUNDAY MILLION sattelite - the only problem is 2 first ones got the ticket and I was left with a 12$ - s**t right? Wanna know whats more worse - I WENT ALL IN AJ AND GOT CALLED BY OTHER PLAYER who had same stacksize - he called me with 45 - and there was 44 on flop - BANG 215$ SUNDAY MILLION TICKET GONE!
all im saying is that, sometimes you just have to deal with that s**t! Be over it and try again, that is how we make money and become unbeatable
I also feel like I always lose to worst hands, but I can remember sometimes being saved in the river

Dont you just love the ones that think it soooo easy..hahahaha if it was down to pure maths then no one would loose and the game would be crap to say the least. If you dont understand varience then you just cant play the game, sure you can play poker but knowing have to play is only half the battle. You need to understand the how , why , what , when of peoples behaviour. understand that AA isnt gonna win every time over 27o deal with the s**t and learn. RNG's are random and thats certified. Your great calls aint gonna hold up every time against a lucky person that hits a 2 outer post flop. If you cant see this then you are best out of poker anyway, save your money and take yourself on a lovely holiday to calm down. Laters poker dud!
