Just so you know, you are not a solid player.

This is something a solid player would never say.

Its not a big deal to not be a solid player, but it is important for you to know that there is a whole other world of poker out there that you haven't explored yet.

The good news is, you've come to a place with information to help you on your way!

Just want to make sure this is correct...

Started out with T9000 chips and the blinds began at 1/2, or 2/4?

I think he was saying they were nine gram (as in weight) chips.

and rightly so. a lot of the time you're going to have a gut feeling about a hand you can't explain, it just feels lucky.

the reason for this is you're picking up on things that your conscious mind can't process, you were probably idley watching as the deck was being shuffled and realised 3 of the 8s were close to each other in the deck, a lot of players don't understand this because they've only played online, live there's a lot of information your subconscious mind is processing that your conscious self misses.

After all anyone can read a book, there's no way you can learn good instincts. The difference between good players and poor ones is that the good players are able to make the call here.

Yah, or he just had a burrito for dinner and it was bubbling up and giving him a funny feeling. Seriously. Pro or not, you're overestimating the accuracy of gut feelings in this case.


Anyway, this is not a bad beat. You had a marginal hand and a drawing hand beat you. It doesn't matter that he beat you in an unlikely way (5s instead of his flush). He could have caught an A, any heart, A/5 running, etc.

My advice to you? If this is really bothering you that much, quit playing poker today. Leave the cards behind and never look back because when you get real bad beats with real cash on the line you're likely to fling yourself out a window.

Come talk to me when you flop top set on a rainbow flop and some jackass calls your all-in with an UNDERPAIR and catches runner-runner quads to take your stack. Then we will discuss bad beats.
