Today it isn't my day on Full Tillt!! I got ripped off so many hands first i had AA and i played for a pot of 20$ against AK. We both went all in before the flop and the flop was AKK the turn was a Q and the river was again a K. I lost 10$ that hand. Later i had KK and i pushed all in before the flop with 15$. J10 called me and the flop was J1010 so i lost again. Again later i had KQ suited. The flop was 2J10 with a royal flushdraw for me. I bet, the other player called me. the turn was 8 and i had flush. i Pushed all in an the other player called me with three of a kind with 2 and the river was another J so i lost, he had full house. My last hand i had AK. All in before the flop and A10 called me. The flop was really nice, it was AK10, the turn was a 6 and the river was again a 10 so i lost again.

Tons of bad luck indeed. I would have personally played those hands as you did, especially the AA hand, so from a strategy point of view i can't really say you did a mistake. The majority of hands you posted above were lost on the river, so basically all were bad beats. As we all know Full Titl Poker is well known for getting bad beats most of the time. Many say you get vey playable cards to shave it all in in order for them to get more rake. Lesson thought by myself and thats why i don't go all in on ftp before i see the river. On what limits have you played?

its always good to get your money back. and its even better to get some more. i know a couple of friends of mine who only play tournaments and believe it or not they make more money from regulars in ring games. some times though it helps to change a site for a while, im talking about what you said for ring games dont stuck at one. gl

Posted by SuperNoob: every1 has a downswing now and then, important thing is not to tilt and lose confidence.
thats really hard to accomplish if u get beat many days in a row. Most of the times we are trying to win our lost money as quick as possible and move the limits. But if you get beaten again in higher limits thats gonna get u in trouble

Great recovery sir and nice midnight run! This actually happend to me couple of times too, i lost a lot during the day, especially in the morning. I take a afternoon break and after i chill out a bit i start a new session at night and very often i recover my loses and a small profit sometimes. As a part of my bankroll management i try to keep a two or three buy-in loss for a session. Just once happend to me to have two losing sessions on a row and it was pretty depressing. After this i took two days off poker and i managed to recover all in the next day of playing. What did you played to recover your loses: a sit'n go or a tournament? What buy-in? Good luck at the tables!

WOW man that is some bad chit. I so know how you feel though. Although I'm strictly a tournament player, those are some bad loses. Personally I've had enough of FTP for a while. All I see is the best hand losing, every time. Not just lately either, been going on for a very long time. Keep your chin up, good luck at the tables.

Yes, I have also been ripped off at FTP! Someone gave me beer, put me in front of the computer, and logged in there. That's how I also lost about 50 $ I had worked real hard for but that insane rush poker thing.... Goddamn!
And today I just got oversetted during like 10 minutes of playing, as I describe in the thread about Take 2.
