      I have just been playing the worst turney ever!!!!!!! I kept throwing away so called "bad hands" while watching how they turned into flushes, straights, full houses... And I'm not kidding most of them turned into monsters on the flop.

      And I could sort of take that, but apart from that I also didn't get any "good hands".

      So my first actual play was with AK, when the blinds ware soo big that after my raise and another guys reraise all I could do was go all in. And I lost to 44. X(

      I'm very frustrated. This tournament play is crap, too much luck involved.

      This happens to all of us. Just try to play your A-game all the time.

      Good luck!

      I was the chip leader in 100 000e tournament on Poker sense,only 120 players left.
      If I folded everything I would make at least top 45 (2400e)

      Went all in on the button 2 times.
      First on KK against AQ and second one AhKh against AA,KK

      I still wouldn't fold those hands so I've got nothing to regret.
      Just hate B2B sites,so ridicilous :evil:

      I got bad beat jack pot on A6 off sute few days later.Won 4400e and the guy with QQ got over 9k.It was pretty funny because I had only 10e on my account left and i went on small stakes just to kill time.
      :D

      PROTIP: Forget your hole cards as soon as you fold them.

      So not true,you should learn from your mistakes.
      For me that is the best way to learn.
      Poker books are ok but you must play,play,play and get some routine.

      mistakes? if you fold 72o preflop and flop comes 222 you didnt' make a mistake, you did the right thing.

      QFT

      Also the RNG on many sites relies on the timing of decisions taken at the table. ie. if the flop comes 222 having just folded 72o then had you called the flop would have almost certainly been something very different.

      i know some RNG's (like stars') take into account mouse movements among other things, so I wouldn't be surprised if it relies on timing of decisions as well... it is totally unpredictable, so you'll get a truly random number (especially with all the other factors used to generate the numbers)

      Full Tilts RNG apparently incorporates player variables too, how many players are in the hand for example. I wouldn't expect mouse movements to be included though, seems too resource intensive imo. Maybe mouse clicks on the table though, with a hidden overlay, XY coordinate style. Who knows xD

      Doesn't really matter. Random = Random.

      At my live games all i hear is, i folded this, i folded that, i would of won that hand, omg look atwhat i folded, i just folded the nuts, bla bla bla.
      Awesome rule---Forget your hole cards as soon as you fold.
      1 thing though i learned a valuable betting pattern about someone in a live game, he represented quads but i was the only one at the table that knew he didnt have it because i folded it so i guess there is a fine line at how much you forget about your folded cards.
