So i was playing brm freeroll and had this hand AJ and raised the dubble, 3 players followed, FLOP was 8, 5, J, so i raised the pot amount to indicate i got stronger hand and ofcorse russian bingo player bets all in on A5 and dushebag hits 5 on river. Ok no hard fealings just lose half of stack.
Next hand i played K, 10 on flop K, 2, K, of course i wanted to trick my opponent, first raised the minimum to see how he brads, turn just checked and let him raise - that other dushebag hits Straight and i fall out.
Is that where poker is heading to? Let the bingo players rock on and us who play the game as it should be played lose and look like morons. Well its a nice parody movie i must admit
------------ Wish it was just this day and i could get pass that, but same s**t repeats about a week and a half.

Golden rule: Don`t get tricky in a freeroll. People are willing to chase everything, so let them pay for doing so. Bet if you think you are ahead, and bet big. Minbets are just an invitation to suck out on you.
Nah same s**t if I do chase STRAIGHT or FLUSH or even Royal and raise big NEVER COMES. When the idots do it they HIT BIG with just following card 6. Thats why is funny. And since it got so bad from the start im not even gonna play at BRM till next season. Fuckin tierd of the brainfuck they preform - so its just rush game for me and some knockout tournys. And yea theres still Leaderboard final 200.

If you are talking about freerolls, dont expect better things. The plays you are describing also happening in low level ring games. Not much of a difference there. They only thing that changes is the frequency on it.

The simple choice is whether you should follow the all in shout, or fold. Poker is a game where you have to use your skill and judgement not to only outplay the other players, but to stop playing a hand at the right time. It's also about making the wrong call at the right time to get lucky. Go with the flow and don't get too hung up on players playing the long odds!

Good comment !! I agree, but Fulltilt random system is really hard for me to understand. Look like not mate with my play even I try hard to learn. Yeah just small buy in maybe, so many sick player there. maybe $ 1 or $2 buy in at s n g or tourney is too small at Fulltilt.
Because SBEP i was the button, other 2 players just called with no raise and as the button i have the opportunuty to even bluff if i hit nothing but since i sense they aint got better and not even gona wait they hit something i did what i did. But ok that doesnt surprise me as hand with K, 10 and how far did software go to twist the situation.
