Dont' know if yoou agree but I have to write it... Seems to me that '' random '' software used by Titan doesn't respect the value of hands. I've been cracked many times with AA, KK or QQ, even if I had gone all in preflop or after a flop without big cards. It's like software decided before gving cards, which place ( I usually play in a six players table ) has to win: you have only to have the brave to call a big reraise even with a 910 or 34 and you win. Doesn't matter if oppo ( in this case me ) has AA, often 910 are enough to win. So you have only to be lucky and to guess which is the lucky hand that allows you to win a monster pot with weak cards. I don't like to go all in with 910 but with KK yes and I think not to be cracked more than once a evening !!! Last night I had full, all in against a flush, only one card to save oppo and magical river saved him: so I began thinking winning hands are already scheduled and you have nothing to do. What do you think ?
Sorry for my english but I hope to have been enough clear

there´s days i lose all the time with big pockets then again i win all games.. 50/50 lol...well i think i win 60-65% of the time with AA KK. i probably won even more than 65%...but as we all know most of the time you only remember if you lost with AA in beginning ive been very pissed to lose vs such hands, but now a days i take it easy. its normal to lose here and there vs T9 or JTs, i my self often cracked big hands with such cards (never went all-in preflop with JTs though) i think you just had a real bad day.
Titan is a funny site, I have several accounts with Ipoker, mansion, titan, bet365, but I have found titan to be very hard work. Played CDpoker and was multi tabling, had AA 12 times in 2 hours across the tables, won 9 hands, threw 1 and lost 2 on all-ins. Must have been a good day as had 3 or 4 on other days and lost all

Just because you are holding premium hands, it doesnt mean you are going to auto-win every single hand including AA,KK, QQ etc. No, you are becoming a good player, if you know when to lay down premium hands, in situations where you get outdrawn and your hand becomes trash. But, sometimes you cant do much, when you get unlucky, this happens to all of us, its a part of poker.

Unfortunately bad beats everyone of us have to face that reality! bad in the other hand poker without bad beats is not poker. If it is our opponent who has a bad beat against us we dont say anthing, but the opposite is difficult to swallow sometimes!
Yhank you all ( but jessthehiman of course ) for suggests. Probably I made a mistake naming this post '' too many bad beats ''. I didn't want to cry or to share my '' unlike poker experience '' with you but to wander about softwares work. If you play in a live tournament, you know that every single card is given casually. I believe that Titan Poker software doesn't give single card random; the sequence of cards is already scheduled and you don't have nothing to do if someone calls your all in in BB with 36. No matter if you play following rules, tight and careful. Braves ( and stupid players too ) are often awarded. Don't know if all softwares play same way: this is all I wanted to say and discuss with you.

Its easier to win with 9 10 offsuit against AA than to guess the right number throwing dice ... 9h 10c VS AsAd = 9 10 has 18.95 % chance to win ... throwing dice you have 1 on 6 probability to be right = 100 / 6 =16.6666 ... %
BTW ... how could the first phrase be better spelled ? ... than to guess doesnt sound right imo

i thought the hands were already decided b4 the hands come out. like seat 1 will get aa, seat 2 9t and b4 the flop it noes that the flop will be 9t2. the hands and cards are decided b4 any cards are delt.

If you play low stakes more people are likely to gamble and go allin with rags, you can't do anything against the donks, just pray they don't get lucky. regarding titan their rng is considered to be the worst, there is no doubt about that.

hmm if i take a look on my current ugly downswing and how it happens i can say the room i play gives the river to i have nothing but some outs-hunters and this is not ipoker
