      1. Read articles
      2. Follow advice given in articles
      3. Shit happens, people making bad calls give you money, even when you play hand as terribly as that
      4. If one beat tilts you, i suggest you also read psychology section

      Might as well get my chips in right ? Pot was $1 already .

      I was really lucky to get 2 players to call the big pre flop raise . And super lucky to get called by K7 ..

      Maybe he thought i was bluffing , why else would you call with K7 ?

      Wait lets do the math :)

      not including the SSS who was all in pre flop .

      K7 had 5 outs 4:1

      Pot is $1 I bet $2 . Pot is now $3 .. does he have correct odds to call?

      or should i have bet 25 cents to give him correct odds?

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em is why people call with K-7s, then call shove with top pair, poor kicker


      From flop you win 75% of the time....and this next bit is VERY IMPORTANT to all people starting out, you LOSE 25% of the time.

      AA is strong, not unbeatable, beats happen, be glad you got the money in ahead and what happens from there happens

      LOL....

      Lets forget about your opponents play for now and concerntrate on yours. There is no structure to your game. Maybe learning some basic strategy is needed....Have you even read any learning matterial?

      Actually i agree i played the hand like a maniac.

      in hind sight maybe i should have only raised 12 cents

      and then i could just c-bet flop 27 cents

      then fold turn when K comes .


      or just stick to limit poker to tame my over aggressive play ?
