      Damn it! Today is really not my day.

      First I lose TT to AJ, then I get a draw on AK, then I loose QQ to KK, then I loose AQ to AK, then I got a AQ, and only get a draw!

      I will definitely not play another round of poker today...

      lol;

      I got AA 9 times yesterday and won 4. 2 of them when everybody folded preflop.. 85 vs AA, KQ vs AA etc.. that's worth hating a bit, but not QQ to KK ;)

      To be honest zumda, you were a underdog from the start in those hands. So you should feel good when they actually win rather than getting upset when they don't.

      i lost $15 in 5 minutes on NL10 yesterday playing sss. AA, all in preflop, villan called K8o, villan wins with a full house was probably the worst lost. if it wasn't for these donkeys poker wouldn't be potentialy as profitable. Its worth remembering every time you get beaten by a donk bet on average you will win against these opponents. Make a note on players who raise or call donk bets for future reference.

      You were behind on most of these hands. TT to AJ was a flip..

      Do you go all in every time u get AQ+ or something? Because if you do, you'll only get called by hands equal or better than yours.

      I lost KK about 10 times today. None of them against AA. So I pretty much got sucked out 10 times compared to your 0 times. So don't whine pleaaaase ;) .

      Look, I was in a 3 spot all in pre-flop. Pot was $150.

      TT vs AA vs J4o. Surely I don't have to tell you who won...

      today's coinflip ratio: 0:11 ... no need to add postflop action unluck..

      i mean common.. when u lose TT vs AJ, QQ vs KK, QA vs KA u even think abt it? just normal standard everyday losses... no suckouts.. u should quickly adjust or quit poker.. and i am serious..

      i dont want to discourage u from playing or anything, but u should really think abt what do u want to achieve bcs awareness with the fact that there s a huge luck factor esp in shortterm u re reffering to, is very fundamental..

      What would u tell if u loose KK to KQ, AK to AJ, AA to AJ, JJ to AJ, KK to 66 (K on flop 6 turn, 6 river) etc. These are from last 2 days.

      Today my 72o didn't hold up against AA. Can't believe it.

      Joke aside, Take it easy zumda. Like others said you were behind in most of the hands you posted, so no big deal.

      I just played according to the SSS strategy... ;)

      But I thought some of them were really not that good.

      Now that I read a through the replies, you seem to agree that it was some really bad play (I'm not surprised, I don't play poker for too long), but since I was always all in before the flop, what would you have done differently?

      Do you go all in every time u get AQ+ or something?


      That's what the strategy tells me to do (after a reraise of course)... ;)

      that's exactly the thing.. u ve done everything correct, but also your opponents did... all are trying just to say that this is soooo usual in poker.. bcs poker is not about winning/losing concrete hands, but abt your decisions.. u did well, but lost.. but eventually in long run u ll attain profit if u can keep doing your good decisions..

      so u need much more patience.. and especially with sss!
