Zen - WTF... I swear I'm cursed online. Late position 1 off the button have JJ. Call a raise, BB raises with AK, I just call hoping to catch trips. Flop comes KJ blank, BB bets, middle position calls I go all in with trip jacks. BB calls with AK, middle position calls with q10s and of course hits his A on turn. Fuck, fuck, fuck. This shit is just never ending online.


No offense, you likely should have reraised with your JJ preflop. Making bad plays opens the door for bad beats.
While I agree, that not re-raising cost him this pot in the short term, but speaking from a long term perspective doesn't he want the Q 10 guy in there as it is a profitable winning percentage for Zen?  Or am I looking at this from a retarded point of view?  I know that not every time you go all in with the best of it you will win, but isn't the goal to get it all in the most amount of times with the best winning percentage?  Eventually, if your bank roll can sustain it, that should be the most amount of money for Zen, right? 
 



TTT for the answer to this. I didn't want to raise because JJ isn't a tier 1 starting hand, especially in a low buy in tourney where guys will definitely call with AK.

Zen,

I didnt really read your post the first time, so I responded prematurely when I said it seemed like you played it right.

If I understand correctly, the guy in middle position raised, you called his raise, then the BB reraised?

Or did midposition and you limp and then the BB raised?

Either way, I think that from your position near the button you have to reraise. You want your JJ up against 1 player, and a reraise will get rid of any other garbage you'll have to worry about if you dont hit your set on the flop.

Pokerstars is a fucking joke. Final 4 at SNG again. Everyone had 2500 to 3500 chips. Very even.

Me: BB

SB raises, I reraise with AA. SB calls.

Flop: A 10 8

SB bets. I call.

Turn: Q

SB bets. I push. He calls with KQ

Hits his 3 outer J on river.

Fuck online poker. IT's a joke and I'm playing live only for now on. It's not mathematically possible to take the amount of bad beats I have over a long period like I have online. I know for fact I'm a good player. Online is not legit.
