      Unfortunately no hand to convert since it was at the final stage of a SnG and it wasn't today either but nvm

      SB: 52 BB
      Hero: 47 BB

      Hero: A :diamond: 9 :spade:

      Villain limps in, Hero raises another 2 BB, Villain calls

      Flop (pot: 8 BB) : K :diamond: 2 :diamond: 7 :diamond:

      Villain bets 4 BB, Hero raises to 8 BB, Villain calls

      Turn (pot: 28 BB): 5 :diamond:

      Villain checks, Hero checks

      River: 7 :heart:

      Villain pushes all in, Hero calls

      Hero: Ace high Flush
      Villain: K :spade: 7 :spade:

      Full house on the last card
      My memory is a bit blurred but this is kinda how it went
      And I still regret that free card I gave him while slowplaying the Nutflush, I just thought I had him eitherway plus wanted to give him a chance to bluff at me after I might have been scared by that last diamond on the turn.
      Anyway villain is kinda fishy so I think he would've called anything at that stage with K7 two pair

      ^Its called a gutshot draw with an overcard which has around 30% equity on the flop :O

      dude I don't know all of the terms you guys come up with here but I know that flopping the gutshot and then completing it on the exact next street needs a massssssssive amount of luck
      if it wasn't for the straight she'd be there with not much more than 4 outs

      3 outs actually, remember that she's holding one of the aces herself (unless you counted the possible flush as one out or something).

      To be fair, the gutshot appeared on the flop, after the money was already in the pot. But even preflop, you "only" had about a 70% chance of winning.

      Hi, SRwtf...
      This is critical.

      30% of the time you take JJ up against Ace-rag hands you will lose.

      The problem comes when you lose your entire tournament as a result.

      So this really is as much a mindset situation as a poker situation.

      To succeed in poker, you need to learn to let these roll off you.

      Have your read, "The Mental Game of Poker" by Jared Tendler?

      It is full of techniques for helping you deal with stuff like this.

      Best of luck,

      yeah @ragney: now that I understand what your misunderstanding was: ofcourse I know what a gutshot is I just didn't get what you meant at first because I thought "what is he talking about, we were all-in... why is he talking about gutshots when it's all laid out already?"

      @harrier I meant it differently, I thought of it as "if not this but something different flopped except for an ace" - well then she'd have to hit the 7 twice and that'd be actually less than an out, so you're right

      @vorpalF2F thanks bro I'll look it up right now after I finish this post - I mean I get it and it's true, if I lose like that at a cash table - and I don't have much more than the buy-in +afewbucks it doesn't really matter right, but at the tournament table it hurts

      But let's say it's not a good idea to go all in with JJ. Then whatabout Kings? They have the same quality against a single ace on the river after all

      See the annoying point is, she already had me beat without the last ace dropping on fifth street. That's what made me go apeshit, I mean... seriously?

      ...It's like asking for 4 consecutive cards to fall and all of them do. Magically. In the exact numerical order x.x

      Yes, that is truly annoying.

      The one I hate is when your straight hits on the river after villains flush hits on the turn.

      Here's an exercise for you -- pick 4 random SnGs, and observe them.
      Count how many times the losing hand on the turn becomes the winning hand on the river.

      It will surprise you.

      I did this when going through "The Mental Game of Poker".

      Barry Greenstein wrote an entire book called "Ace on the River".
      The title comes from just such a hand. The book is a good read for a poker player. It won't increase your winrate, but it is interesting nonetheless.

      Cheers,

      I really wanna get my hands on The Mental Game of Poker, I read a teaser and it seems like just what I need at this point, especially the inchworm analogy hits the nail on the head, I'm just broke and can't afford to buy anything right now lol
      To be honest I even looked for a copy somewhere on the internet but I wasn't very succesfull, guess it's not meant to be ahaha

      Anyway thanks, this seems like a must read

      Hi, SRwtf,
      I was poking around the strategy section looking for something else and I noticed this:
      http://www.pokerstrategy.com/strategy/psychology/
      Open the "Silver" section, and there are a lot of articles that may fill the gap until you can get TMGoP.

      Some of them are marked as read, but I don't remember reading any of them.

      Best of luck,

      I didn't want to flood this thread with more unrelated stuff (although it might be kinda on topic regarding bad beats, downswings and mental game) but I can't send you a message so I'll just thank you here
      This might be jsut what I needed. So instead of continuing right down the strategy section, absorbing new information -(I was already moving slowly, understanding what it all means is more important to me than status. And I also am a slow learner lol)- I'm going to read through the psychology section first
      Thanks mate
      Also: Is that really the unedited you on your profile picture? :D
