Yesterdays freeroll, my starding hand 2 Cowboys, 4 of us went all in - 2 of them had Ace with lame backup card - flop comes 2,10,K, turn Q and ofcorse river to burrie me J. Another freeroll KK again - and ofcorse A with lame backup wins, todays freeroll just few minutes ago - I got AA hand - dont wona go all in to give away my card so i raise the pot - flop 9,4,10 - another guy goes all in and i already sens he got the best 2 pair, but hey i got 2 aces and i follow - maybe i hit another ace or 2 then i have better hand, ofcorse i lose again. Its not more about not having luck then the brain f**k every software preforms and i hate that. Dont really get that, when i fool around and go all in with A5 i lose. And why the hell does every software "bends over" to russians. Crazy bingo players who think that 22 card is awesome to go all in without even blink they put all in. I could never get that. Usualy im a calm guy and like to see all cards to the end, but seems like its now days better to b a bingo player. At the end my conclusion is that i dont have luck only knowlege, im so good at reading the game,what somebody might have, but seem then online play is not for me. I my final word goes - F**K LUCK - when it for some of us dont exist.
Ill try to go all in with 33 or 34 next time. Maybe Gods of Bingo spare me and show some mercy.
Well, on the first hand, you have to keep in mind that it's a pre flop 4-way all-in. So even if you have KK against 2x ace rags and a suited connector hand, you will have around 50% chance to win so it's basically a 4-way coin flip between you and the 3 other players. Of course it's frustrating to lose but it's not unlikely to happen. When you win, you win a lot more though. The best way to not be disapointed is to not have expectations...
On the second hand, I can't really judge your play because I don't know the stack sizes, and was it a tournament or a cash game? You could've folded that one because a donk bet (donk shove here) usually represents strength. Of course if it's a cash game it's a pretty easy fold, if it's a MTT it's not...

I have few winnings on freerolls and learn few thing. In multiway pots or family pots in early phase of game,monsters like QQ+ are nothing and not worth likes on normal situations describe on books or poker articles. second,big field of players with over 1k players guarantees you bad beat in any phase of game,if you play normal strategy with basic preflop hands,just waiting to right hand,higher stack just eat you. So,do not be angry or frustrated,there are many freerolls through day. Its free,use more strategys to improve game in normal tournaments with buy ins. Try play aggro,tight,loose Try play 72 all inn,more bluffing situations from different positions. Use freerolls for practice.
Dont think u get it, im not mad at bad beat or people, im mad at software - how manny times it gona give me killer cards then screw me up. For 3 days now i cant make a decent resolt, and i dont mind of been beaten by player who outsmarts me, infact i cheer for that, cause what is game without pressure. Software is like - desided to hate me all of a sudden . Same s,.t happen on Pokerstars same day played 7 small tournaments and last 5 was something to remember. On each one i had AA hand and lost every. How can i lose AA hand five times in row and drop out of every tournament. Am i that lucky?
I play Texas Holdem over 10 years now and understand all. Even gona start contesting in live poker Authumn Poker Story witch starts in 2 weeks in my hometown Osijek. No matter the buy-in ive desided to participate and go for the big one.

I think if you have a problem with the software for internet poker then you should not play poker on the internet.People have been saying the software is dodgy since internet poker started,you have to accept that it is the same for everyone or you are just always going to be thinking about the software instead of playing to your best. Also playing low stakes or freerolls is always played by crazy players who don't care if they lose or they may not even know how to play properly.I think we forget when we win with rubbish cards and always focus on the losses.
