Ever played a Tourny it felt you were set up to win?  0   
Just played one that seemed that way.

5$ Buy Nl at Vulcan, decided to risk a fair amount of my $20 free bonus.

So, 75 playerss, off we go and within 15 mins i've made a big mistake i'm down to 750 of my 1500 chips - last place and not feeling clever.

Then it begins.

22 on the next hand,early pos so deciding to play ultra tight for a bit I fold. All in go two players. AK vs KK.. Flop 2 7 8 then something like 4 9. Damn, but never mind.

Next: AQ hmmm...3x bet......two people go all in...damn!......leave it... this time AA vs A10 suited...Flop .. A Q 2 RAG. Grrrr., but hey.

Time after time this happened, so many I lost count. Every time i Folded a hand it flopped right to me. BUT I was still gaining chips at a decent rate, I was winning in fact nearly every hand I played - even from the blinds

Example A 2 unsuited...up came the flop 3 4 5 1 player goes all in , folds to me so I call .. guy has AK unsuited. AH WELL I think, at least it's a draw.

And POOF! he's gone. WTF...I think and.. look again...four spades on the board - my '2' spades making the

This just kept happening, trash hands, winning flops. So I opend up. No matter what rubbish I was given - I kept winning, hardly a decent hand to be seen for 3 hours. . And every time I went all in, I won, even A10 suited (against AA and KK i think)....I should have been out of that game so many times I lost count.

So it was that I made the final table of 10.

Now I again made a big mistake, all in against another player. I lost over half my chips and am now the smallest stack...nice one muppet. Blingds are now getting big - I have about 7, so not much choice.

Now I start getting all the good hands I didn't have earlier....but in the blinds. AA, KK, JJ AK all on the blinds and all within just a round or two. I two two out in one go. Suddenly i'm in 4th.

Then I get 22, in the blinds. One guy with v. few chips left -so I go all in! - he calls - AK. Hmmmmmm - but no problem, rag on the board and he's out.

Now i'm 3rd and up comes AA. We're now pretty evenly stacked so - all in. I guess having seen my previous effort one guy thinks @[email protected] and calls- he shows 10 10. Big Smile

Then the shortest playout I've ever had - AA vs AQ I think was the final hand after about 5 minutes.

I never felt like I was going to win.....I just never felt I was ever going to lose!..almost felt 'fixed'

Sweet though Big Smile Big Smile Cool

Anybody else had this?

Yep, make a bad move it pays off etc....Sometimes i like to mess on the low tables and this kinda thing happens.
make all the splits, ohh yes iv seen it.
Also think i see it the outher way, a certin player is set up to beat you. You play the A game fold QQ etc, get AA in pos make a move and he calss you down and says it was a gut feeling, bust...
Just coinsdence tho imho.

Yea, i've had it the other way too, but in this case I didn't play - other than the ones I put down - many bad hands - I usually got in cheap on the flop in good position - it was just tghe way the flops kept coming. But I agree - coincidence as too that.

Then again - I LIKE coincidence Big Smile

ok ..... a I got lucky on a few Blink

Nope but I sure played a lot where I felt I was set up to lose. Wish I had the other feeling sometimes.

i get the feeling im set up to lose as well , cash or tourny sometimes it feels wrong. but then again i have felt invinsable in some tournys Agree

Yes sometimes i have that feeling... but 20 times more i have the feeling i have really been set up to LOSE Sad All kind of conspiracy theories starts to run around my mind...

Same here. Honestly, it can feel that way at times. You're in the late stages, just outside the money, with a healthy stack - get dealt JJ and see a flop of JA5, push and get called by KQos and you know that turn card will be the 10, no second A or 5 or that miracle 4th J to save you Aww crap! It's ALWAYS a player with a slightly higher stack than you too!

Grrrr. Hands you just cannot get off of.

Nope,never had that...But dude you made a few mistakes there,you had AQ and folded and the flop came A Q 2,you would have had 2 pair but the guy with AA had a set,also the A 2 against AK,the flop came 3 4 5 you had him beaten from the start and didnt need the flush you had a straight already. But anyway congrats,how much did you win?

nope never had that before..I do had some tourneys that started off very well top 5 or someothing when I thought I was going to win but didn't happen
