      He had an 11% chance of hitting the river. He still had 6 (4 actually) outs left. I've seen worse bad beats...

      I'd say you got lucky. :) He was 53% favorite preflop.

      beaten by donk, .02/.04c blinds, raised 3x big bind with 99, every one folded apart from guy sittin on left, flop comes down 8,3,2 different suits, a very nice looking flop. so i raised to 30c(pot), really i wanted to kill it because of my luck recently, but he re-raised to 80c, now i no this guy is quite loose, so i dont put him on the overpair, but he might have an ace4, so i re-raised him all in, try to push him off the hand but being a donk he auto calls. turns his cards and hes got q8o, which is a joke in itself because i raised pre-flop. turn comes and does nothin hits, of course though like fuckin always his queen hits, he even had the cheek to say i think i played that well, im fuming, 3 days now nd everything has been going against me. it makes me want to jus jack it in now before i get to a stage where i might be gambling big.

      3xBB? standard is 4BB. Both of these examples aren't bad at all. They happen all the time.

      Heh yesterday i lost some funny hands aswell and not to mention that two monsters with lucky river card made split pot :D

      I remember well this one on NL0,10/0,20
      Three limps i am BB with Q4 and check

      flop
      QJ4 i check one bets i call others fold
      turn
      Q
      he bets i raise all in(i am short stack) he calls since he had odds to call
      river
      J

      I quess i am lucky it wasn't king since he had KQ :D

      One other hand was quite similar.

      And i also lost
      9 :spade: 9 :heart: vs J :club: J :diamond:( he didn't raise and were 4 callers so i called)

      flop
      9 :diamond: 8 :diamond: 5 :heart:

      well he bets i raise he goes all in i call.

      Turn and river both came diamonds :D

      And there were more hands i made quite nice minus(-20€ in 3 hours) and would be more if i wouldn't win some nice not cracked hands like with AA two villians going all in :)
