blinds are 150 / 300 im sitting on 15k pick up AK in early position. raise to 1200 one guy ships for 5k other guy ships for 4k other ship ships for 7k Ive got 3 notes on these guys and they all effing donkeys and im willing to take a race if they got pocket pairs so I call
first guy shipped with QJ 2nd guy = JK 3rd guy = KQ
I mean im so far ahead here I donno how I can lose this... They all got each others outs
BUT OF COURSE THE FLOP COMES 2 6 J Turn Q River K
....you have got to be kidding me sh#t beat it happens ok....
3hands later, down to 10k chips pick up KK in mid position.
guy under the gun sitting with 12k chips raises to 1200 I'm still tilting so just ship for 10k
folded round to him he SNAP calls turns over A6 ACE FCUKING 6 and yes... flop is A 3 9 turn 2 river 10
give me a bloody break seriously
some donkeys need to be taken round the back and shot... ...shot in the legs first then in the head let them suffer a bit let them think of how terrible their poker is and how bloody lucky they get
feel a bit better now that i got it out
posted this in poker strategies. why? cause here is an awesome strategy for you: just ship you're entire stack with KQ offsuit in early position or even better just SNAP CALL SOMEONES RE-RAISE WITH A6 FOR YOUR ENTIRE TOURNAMENT LIFE

Second hand is a real bad beat. But i would not have called in the first hand. Even donkey players may have some of your outs (ACE FCUKING 6 , KING FCUKING 4). And you will be a huge dog against any PP.

Agreed with above, even though poker stove shows your equity at 58% vs these hands (~13%) you need to fold vs 3 shoves. The 2nd hand I'd tank then 3bet, this deep into a tourney you need to make the donkeys/fish think before they gamble, in my experience insta shoving is just asking for it.

i feel u man... 5 out of 4 Kings i got in 1 hour lost ! i mean like wtf ? 1 of the kings i just got preflop action wtfffff ??? i am feeling a conspiracy going on in poker websites like fulltilt because most of the people i lose to are from the states... maybe they are trying to let people from the states win more to recover the fktup condition in the USA now or maybe its just variance and poker u tell me

Don't forget you are playing poker. The fact you have better pre-flop hand than your opponent doesn't assure you to win. Your opponent decided to play a non-profitable game but he was lucky and he won. It's like playing lotto: why so many people is playing in a non-profitable game? Only if they would be lucky. Come on, don't give up and smile
Donkey are everywhere. They are dangerous because sometimes use a camouflage and seem to play like normal players but suddenly, when you don't expect, booom..... they go out and make nonsense lucky calls

These kinda beats hurt but you just have to be patient with your good Bankroll management and hand rating. Sometimes these badbeats just hunt you but with patient cool play you will catch those donks and them who is the king.
