Again, yet another session down the drain with this sick sick hand.
Basically flop comes 2 8 9 - my opponent goes all in.
I hold 88 and call.
He shows 99 and wins.
Aww crap!

Does anyone have a similar set story?

i had same flop 89 x, rag 9, i held pocket 8's he held pocket 9's, so my full house 8's full of nines got dominated by his quads, this was omaha so i half expected it, but it still sucks

Today I had 77, I raise from SB to chip leader in big blind who is a call station. I have 3000 chips. I raise to 350, blinds were 50/100. He calls, headsup between the blinds. Flop comes 7,8,10 rainbow. I check cause he always bets. He bets 300, I raise to 800. He calls, turn comes 9, I check he goes all in, I fold lol Sad I ended winning that sit and go tough..maybe should have reraised more on flop.

Thats similar to a hand on poker after dark where The Professor (Howard Lederer) has kings full over queens and Tuan Le has kings full over nines but Tuan Le doesn't go all in and just calls.

actually i think ive seen that episode not to long ago really... it was a smart move that he called (cuz really who isnt gonna at least call in that situation) but it coulda been alot worse like in fr0zen89's case

It is just bad luck dude. In those situations u can just throw your keyboard to wall.

yea thats just about it theres no way you could fold that POSSIBLY not go all in but if your called all in i dont really see how you can get away from it.. unless your crazy lol it happens

That's why having such nice hands the you can't fold are probably more dangerous than those two pairs. even if you wanted to fold but with such good hands, you tend to go all-in

yea thats usually what happend to me but i mostly learned from it.. hands like K 9 or other mediocre hands i tend to stay away from pre flop because those are the ones that tend to put you in tough spots where you can get hit pretty hard... so tis a gut cal for me.. altho K9 is my hand and ill usually always play it
