I really do believe that the pros could not make money at the level I play due to the donks I come up against. I play $10 or $20 s n g's or mtt's. I'm not expecting to make a living out of this by building up my bankroll, I know my limitations.
How many aces are there in an online pack? My pocket kings getting busted by A rag more times than I care to mention. How many times do two suited cards come on the flop tempting the donk with 8 10 suited to call my big raise to scare him off and then he gets his flush?
Think you are really at the wrong place at the wrong time how can it affect you so much 2 lose 1$ Are you from poor family Or did it destroy your dreams of becoming a pro pokerplayer Did you play more than 1million hands already I dont think so. You whine after 100 hands played And if you already played more than 1million hands and still stuck at microstages than you are seriously wasting your time but I think your a waste of pokertime yourself

i hear you and it's true....funny thing tho ...when i have a-k against pair - there is only one ace in the deck (the one I have) ...but when I play pair against a-k ..there are a dozen
i remember playing at a site with my last $10 on a cash table...get a pair of A's - of course I go all in...get one call...guy flips over 4-6 suited..can't believe my good fortune.....you know what happened...hits runner runner for flush

I know how you are feeling it happened to me and i guess that it did happened to almost every poker players! You feel that no matter what is the way you play donkeys will always win against you! But you will se that is just a phase! a downswing!
Ok, maybe he is exagerating a little bit with this complains but come on, i saw it million of times. Someone have KK and funny is that you have three ppl holding an A in theih hand and of course one is checking and hitting an 1 outer. My advice : Don't raise KK in a late stage of an MTT, when i started to do so i started to win much more... I know it sounds strange but i really hate KK too. My earning raised of about 20%/30% when i started to just check KK...
