      Very ordinary hands here, nothing special. I don't wanna scare you, but you have to expect much worse things as you gain experience :-)

      I dare you to beat my loss AA vs 23o, both allin preflop (we were both deepstacked), where he did hit fullhouse on the flop.
      If you can beat that, then you can whine :D

      Oh, I just finished a fine NL20 session on Mansion, that went horrible as well. First I was playing my A-game, went up $20 and felt great. Then I started experiencing suckouts, coolers, plain bad luck and impossible calls, for some reason concentrated on the second hour of my session, making me go down to -$10. Here's what I'm talking about :


      MP1:
      $4,00
      Hero:
      $8,72

      0,1/0,2 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.65 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with Q:spade: , Q:heart:
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $0,80, Hero raises to $2,40, 5 folds, MP1 raises to $4,00 (All-In), Hero calls $1,60.

      Flop: ($8,30) 2:club: , K:heart: , J:club:
      Turn: ($8,30) 7:club:
      River: ($8,30) A:spade: (1 players)


      Final Pot: $8,30

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of queens (Qs Qh)
      MP1 shows two pairs, aces and kings (Ah Kd)

      MP1 wins with two pairs, aces and kings (Ah Kd)

      At first sight, nothing more than a coinflip, but when the same thing happens at five other tables, it starts ticking you off. Variance can be a tricky thing when playing against fish. Speaking of fish, no sane person would make this kind of calls, but I get them on a regular basis, making c-bets absolutely useless.


      MP2:
      $12,75
      MP3:
      $4,00
      Hero:
      $4,28

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A:spade: , T:heart: . MP3 posts a blind of $0,20.
      UTG1 calls $0,20, 2 folds, MP2 calls $0,20, MP3 checks, Hero raises to $1,20, 3 folds, UTG1 calls $1,00, MP2 calls $1,00, MP3 folds.

      Flop: ($4,10) J:club: , K:heart: , 2:spade: (3 players)
      UTG1 checks, MP2 checks, Hero bets $3,08 (All-In), UTG1 folds, MP2 calls $3,08.

      Turn: ($10,26) 6:club:
      River: ($10,26) 4:club: (1 players)


      Final Pot: $10,26

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows high card ace with king kicker (As Th)
      MP2 shows a pair of jacks (Qs Jh)

      MP2 wins with a pair of jacks (Qs Jh)

      (no comments about AT raise please, it's on my SHC)

      At that point I get a little annoyed, start raising hands I shouldn't be raising, and even though I'm ahead, the following keeps happening:


      SB:
      $9,40
      BB:
      $7,81

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with 9:club: , 9:spade:
      UTG1 folds, Hero raises to $0,80, 5 folds, SB calls $0,70, BB calls $0,60.

      Flop: ($2,40) 3:spade: , 8:heart: , 4:spade: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $3,20 (All-In), SB folds, BB calls $3,20.

      Turn: ($8,80) 7:heart:
      River: ($8,80) J:spade: (1 players)


      Final Pot: $8,80

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of nines (9c 9s)
      BB shows a flush, jack high (8s 5s)

      BB wins with a flush, jack high (8s 5s)

      Is life fair? No. Is NL20 fair? No. Is poker fair? No. But if it makes you feel a tiny bit better, only good players get frustrated about suckouts, because only good players know what they're doing. You're a winning player, and if you keep playing your A-game, the fish will eventually run out of luck. It's a question of not giving up and keeping faith in your game.

      By the way, I still finished my session being up $11, so even bad luck can be offset by good play ;)

      ATo is way to marginal to be on your SHC and I am dead serious about that because you lose money far too often :(

      I beat your AA vs 32 --> 7 2 not suited re-raise me all in preflop. I call with AA. He hits straight (I was up 200BB).
