      What limit do you play and what game type? It is possible that you are not aggressive enough with strong hands. Also it is possible that you overplay them and not fold them when you should.

      there are more numbered cards in the deck than faced cards, thats why good hands always lose, it happens to me too, so i started to play hands like 72, 93, J5 and i crack aces and kings all the time.

      Maybe the site you play is rigged ;(

      I have read some threads in this forum about rigged sites such as FT and PP.
      Please check the list and avoid to play there! ;)

      I on the other hand LOVE getting it all in preflop when I hold AA... :f_love: It is most +EV thing you can do.
      But if you get till turn and cards are for example 8h9hThJh and villain donk shoves into me after me raising preflop and betting flop...I probably wont be calling with AsAd :f_p:

      That's called variance, and it is high in SNG's and MTT's. That means your good hands are being cracked more than in lower variance games like cash games.

      Only thing you can do it keep improving.. post hands in the hand evaluation forum and you'll probably get better.. read articles, watch videos, analyse hands.. etc etc..

      I generally play MTTs on the so aclled rigged site Party Poker and I show a profit of over $50,000 so I think there is a profit to be made and I know that the site isnt rigged just bad players cant accept variance .

      no that's not correct. The hands get cracked as often in SNG's and MTT's as in cash games.

      If u start saying that AA sucks or is overrated you shouldn't play poker because you don't have the mindset to make profit in poker. The key is long-term thinking. and long term is not 10k hands , not 15K hands but more than 50k or 100k hands.
