      Hi Sk8Surf!

      Bad beats happen to all of us. And you want the player to go all-in with middle pair against your AA, don't you? Sometimes they hit: so be it. It is frustrating when it happens a lot of times in a row but don't worry: you will move up again if you play well. To make sure that you play well please post some of your hands in the sample hands board. This way you can improve your game a lot.

      Good luck at the tables!

      would you put your money into the pot again in the same situation if you knew your opponents cards?


      if the answer is yes then your play was corect and you dont have to worry about it . sometimes they will complete their hands , but all it matters you made the right play .
      in time you will make money of those players but you cant expect to win every pot even when you are a favorite.

      Full Tilt, at least at NL25, is loose. The players generally are rubbish. Because of this, I find the variance high, but I love it. I'm running around 13BB/100 after 5K hands, because they throw their money away.

      I am playing very passively preflop, and giving up AJ, KQ and marginal hands very often. AF preflop is less than 1, Flop and Turn over 4. When I hit, I try to get all in as soon as possible, and most often get called. If I'm sucked out on, I don't mind, because they are gonna keep coming back, and my bets are winning bets. ;)

      Well, after nearly 8k hands now, vpip around 12, pfr 6.8 and BB/100 dropped to 4.5. Variance kicking in big time.
