How the hell am I supposed to have a good ROI?
 
Played 12 SNGs tonight.

Busted out of seven of them with the following hands:

K8 vs 86 off (pf - bubble)
AK vs KQ
AQ vs AJ
AJ vs AT
KQ vs K6
AQ vs KJ
A9 vs 97

How the hell am I supposed to have a good ROI if since I started playing a year ago I keep getting this over and over and over and over again?

nicknames that are spelled with only small letters are identified by a pokerroom's software and are the only ones that receive bad beats

I've got many stories the same!!!

I think best to fold the winning hand when you're close to the money and let someone else take them out. Then you atleast get your money back. Specially when there are 4 players left and top 3 pays. My latest was like A 10 vs A 6...god damn. I'll post the exact soon.

Here it is. That damn mofo.

A 8 suited vs A 7 offsuit wins. Just missed the pay out.

Sorry S happens sometimes. These will always stick out in your mind while the times you win these are forgotten. Yes you are a nice favorite in most of these but your opponent isn't as bad off as you would like to think.

K8 vs 86 off (pf - bubble) your 3:1
AK vs KQ your 3:1
AQ vs AJ your 3:1
AJ vs AT your 3:1
KQ vs K6 your 3:1
AQ vs KJ your 3:2
A9 vs 97 your 3:1

Blade Jun 21, 2007 6:54pm

I was bored to I went into a low buyin sng. ALLIN 7/2, hit the straight.

2,3,4,5,6,7. I got called by Ace + Ace. Felt bad afterwards!

Perhaps if you would stop writing down all your 'beat' so you can tell the world ( who doest care ) that youre so unlucky and take that free time and work on your game, that would helps

That is all completely standard. You will be on the other end of it at some point it all evens out. The only difference is you will probably suckout those same 7 times over a much larger sample than the one displayed here.
