      Don't get me wrong, I love stars. However quite often they'll go ahead and pull off a joke on you which gives them their popular name "Jokerstars".

      So I thought why not start a thread where people could share their Jokerstars hands.

      Here's mine to begin with where this complete fish hits a 2 outer. [Edit 3 outer. The wretched fish is already holding K :heart:]


      Poker Stars, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 8 Players


      BTN: $4.52 (45.2 bb)
      SB: $10 (100 bb)
      Hero (BB): $10 (100 bb)
      UTG+2: $9.35 (93.5 bb)
      MP1: $20.57 (205.7 bb)
      MP2: $10 (100 bb)
      MP3: $4.15 (41.5 bb)
      CO: $3.60 (36 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q A
      3 folds, MP3 raises to $0.20, CO folds, BTN calls $0.20, SB folds, Hero calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.65) 4 Q 5 (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.40, MP3 folds, BTN calls $0.40

      Turn: ($1.45) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.10, BTN raises to $3.92 and is all-in, Hero calls $2.82

      River: ($9.29) K (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results: $9.29 pot ($0.42 rake)
      Final Board: 4 Q 5 5 K
      BTN showed K Q and won $8.87 ($4.35 net)
      Hero showed Q A and lost (-$4.52 net)


      After this next hand I actually asked this guy why he would even want to do something like that. He said he was waiting for a tournament to start was getting bored and wanted to kill some time on cash games.

      Poker Stars, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 8 Players


      MP3: $16.51 (165.1 bb)
      CO: $3.66 (36.6 bb)
      BTN: $8.59 (85.9 bb)
      Hero (SB): $9.90 (99 bb)
      BB: $14.41 (144.1 bb)
      UTG+2: $4.28 (42.8 bb)
      MP1: $8.70 (87 bb)
      MP2: $11.92 (119.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A A
      4 folds, CO raises to $0.30, BTN folds, Hero raises to $0.90, BB folds, CO raises to $3.66, Hero calls $2.76

      Flop: ($7.42) 4 Q 8 (2 players)
      Turn: ($7.42) 3 (2 players)
      River: ($7.42) J (2 players)

      Results: $7.42 pot ($0.33 rake)
      Final Board: 4 Q 8 3 J
      CO showed 8 Q and won $7.09 ($3.43 net)
      Hero showed A A and lost (-$3.66 net)

      It always sucks being coolered..

      But for the sake of correctness, shouldn't the first hand be a three-outer? He's only holding one king, there should be 3 left in the deck, out of which one hits?

      Yeah sorry 3 outer, my bad. And a 4th out for a split pot which could be another 5 but he had just 3 outs to win the damn pot. I wrote 2 cause I thought the K :heart: would give me a flush but the damn fish was holding it already. :D

      Thanks, please do post some of your favourite Jokerstars hands..

      Here's another funny one.
      Poker Stars, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 8 Players

      UTG+2: $1.77 (88.5 bb)
      MP1: $1.97 (98.5 bb)
      MP2: $2.02 (101 bb)
      MP3: $0.99 (49.5 bb)
      CO: $0.07 (3.5 bb)
      BTN: $3.75 (187.5 bb)
      Hero (SB): $2.29 (114.5 bb)
      BB: $0.95 (47.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K K
      4 folds, CO calls $0.02, BTN folds, Hero raises to $0.10, BB folds, CO calls $0.05 and is all-in

      Flop: ($0.16) A A 9 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      Turn: ($0.16) A (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($0.16) 9 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results: $0.16 pot
      Final Board: A A 9 A 9
      CO showed T A and won $0.16 ($0.09 net)
      Hero showed K K and won $0.00 (-$0.07 net)

      Not sure who they were joking with, me (They could have given him just one A and gotten it over with, didn't have to rub it in my face) or him (they deal him quads when he has what he has in his stack. 3.5 freaking bb)

      lol it is pretty funny that CO only had $0.07 (3.5 bb)
      Win or loose this one & it wont make much difference imo.

      Ul with the AQ hand. I also got 3outered almost exactly like you did, except in a $500 GP mtt on 888 today... happens everywhere!
      Winning this hand would of brought me into 3rd pos. with just 55 players remaining! River tilt!!

      This is the worst I could find where I was all in turn or earlier, out of 10k all ins I think this means I run pretty good on stars. I still think this is a good thread just to confirm that there are still some awful players out there :)

      Ok, i think something needs to be cleared here. I didn't start this thread to whine about bad beats but rather share them and have a nice laugh here and there. Honestly I don't feel really bad about losing any of the hands that I did lose but when they unfolded at the showdown I just smiled it off.

      I understand variance AA will win only 80-85% of the time and I know bad beats are a part of the game but I don't see any reason why people can't share some funny bad beats here and just laugh them off.

      To clear some further confusions that might prop up, I don't think Stars is rigged, I'm not on a downswing, I don't wanna kill people who suck out etc. etc. etc.

      I just laughed really hard the first time I heard the term "Jokerstars" and thought it would be fun to start a thread where people could share funny Jokerstars hands.

      I hope you laughed too after this hand cause if you didn't then you were kinda welcoming a tilt. I feel the best way to let go is just to laugh off a bad beat instead of getting angry. Its been working for me lately.
