      From times to times we all get this.Yesterday while playing 4 tables NL5 i got deal on 3 tables at the same time AA,AA,QQ.I lost 2 stacks,one on the AA and one on the QQ and the other AA i folded it on turn cause there was a 1 card straight/flush on board...So get used to it

      Is it just me or I do I get really bad suckouts on full tilt, ipoker and party poker too? Sure you'll win those hands 80-90% of the time, but you won't remember it as much as hitting those 10% when a worse hand will beat you... this WILL happen on ANY poker platform... Well when you play 50-100k hands a month, it happens alot, but you get used to it :) .

      a new card combination? 1 card straight/flush? nice!

      folding AA in most cases is -EV, and you should've got all of your chips in the pot by turn if you played properly anyways, slowrolling is bad for you...

      Lol primzi,what i meant to say is that there where 4 hearts on board and it was 6,7,8,9.So in this scenario AA couldnt be good for me cause i hadnt the heart ace.I would lose to 4x5s,4xTs,any of the rest 9 hearts,PLUS i had to people betting strong.I think my aces where just a crappy overpair at the moment and about slowrollin ur wrong again,i didnt but making the standard 4BBs raise preflop and a 6BBs cbet post doesnt push many opponents out of a pot on microlimits....

      Why would anyone ever play one Pokerstars, it says right here most of their games are fixed.

      Lmao @ Jonathon! Loved that post.

      Man, all these tales of poker being fixed online and all that crap, it's such crap. I've had the immense downswings, and I've had the immense upswings also. But you have to remember, sometimes there is a little more luck involved in poker than we would like to think. Having said that, by playing a good solid game and sticking to your style (as long as you are a winning player anyway of course) then all these losses will eventually even themselves out.

      Every donkey will have thier day against you, you just need to be ready to have a good week against them.

      Good luck,
