      Variance is a bitch!

      Yes its feels good to suck out on people but this feels like karma x100

      I followed BRM carefully, my bankroll was at $160 after a large withdraw and now its sitting at $15 :s_frown:

      In cash games I had AA 15 times only twice has it held up, going all in majority pre-flop......

      Tournaments as well.... AA IS OVER RATED!

      I guess its karma from sucking out small pairs late in tournaments

      AA is simply >80%. Not overrated, not underrated.

      Yep, AA scares the shit out of me when I see it. Either I usually win a small pot because everyone folds or I lose a monster pot because I get outdrawn on the river by someone calling for a flush or straight.

      I know they're the best starting hand in poker, 80% fav etc but at the low stakes I play at people just seem to call call call and at the moment they just seem to keep hitting against me. I'm sure it will change but it's annoying as hell when it goes in a run against you.

      I feel you pal. Right now I hate to see them too after losing in the most bs ways the last couple of times I got em.

      It's just like they say, with AA you either win an small pot or lose a big pot.

      Had AA, KK and AK once each tonight and got beat each time by donk calls making two pair or flushes. Lost big on each pot so that's my bank roll decimated again. I think I'm gonna just stop playing them, they cost me a fortune.

      Either that or I'll just go all in and hope to win the blinds, that's about as good as it gets for me with these hands.

      When you bet 10xBB and get called with J9 off when holding AA and get beat it is bloody annoying. The most annoying thing is that guy probably thinks he made a great play instead of just getting very very lucky.

      I'm off for a wee cry in a quiet corner somewhere.

      Fold preflop and you won't ever lose to a flush draw or straight draw is your best bet.
