      Well, I guess on the river its happening every 46 times or so. There is a king in that pack unfortunately.

      Still, bad luck! That is a gut-wrenching bad beat. They always seem to be the river, somehow, and never the turn. Its like the Poker Gods want to cause the most pain possible.

      I know the thread title was a joke, but I have to say PokerStars are one of the few US-facing sites that can hold their heads up high post Black Friday. They have acted very professionally, like you would expect such a big company to act.

      This happened to me twice in one day last week, I just sighed, tried not to tilt and still ended the day in the green, nothing you can do.

      It would have been more fun if the Ace would have come on the turn instead of the flop. The reaction will be like this: Great I have him dominated with my AA; shit he just hit a set Godammit; yeaaah! that's how I roll, ace on the turn; fml

      you need to play ALOT more if you want to compare them statistically, with such low numbers you can still be very lucky/unlucky etc. etc.

      took me another 30mins resting n smoking outside, then playing again the same SNG n im ITM.

      PS: I never say n will not say pokerstars is rigged, the topic is only to show my frustration, even with AA im not confidence in winning since my AA stats show me 88% winning rate, KK 92% winning rate.

      Before the AA being cracked, i lose another bad beat TT vs 99 on the bubble in $2.50 tournament.

      Well, 88% for AA and 92% for KK it's really good. You probably have a small sample and you are running good. :)

      Complaints about bad luck are never really fun to read for anyone, but I´m gonna say I´m feel sorry for players who experience very bad variance in the very beggining of their poker career. I´ve had very bad streches already, but with experience you know what variance is like, so you just know its gonna turn around, but then if a player experiences this sort of bad variance without having the experience to tell them "hey,it´s gonna be ok, don´t worry" they might very discouraged about the game.
