Default Argh ... 4 of 4 in one night!

I suppose this is the place to ventilate about bad beats.

I went into 4 of the 20 buck 180s tonight on pstars. And each time I got bounce when I went all in with the nuts on the river ... flush, burned by full house on river ... straight, burned by one card flush on river ... full house, burned by better boat on river ... and, straight burned by boat on river that paired the board.

Makes me want to puke. I can take this a few times, but four in a row in one night?

Sorry to hear it. I know how frustrating it is.

Thanks ... my ability to handle this stuff has improved a great deal since talking with people around here about it.

But I couldn't resist ventilating on this tonight. It's one thing to get busted out on TPTK ... you almost can deserve that stuff, but with these hands it was a real nutcracker.

The good thing is that I don't feel like ripping these people a new one.

i once pressed all in instead of fold with Q 4
got two callers one a short stack the other
guy would have wiped us both out of a SNG
hit a four card flush with the 4 on the river
it won the pot but my table image was destroyed
my blinds were raided regularly and every bet i made after
that was raised to high to call.
i wont try that again in a hurry

So has mine. This is why I dont think bad beat posts are couinter productive. Expressing anger is a good way to deal with anger. If you dont like to read bad beat posts dont click on that bad beat section.

I woulda feared after the pre-flop call that he had hit trips on flop. But then again, its about reads too.

Yeah, I had him read correctly. I put him on a small or mid pair without the set.

Well, I tried my hand at this one yet again last night and at least got myself to the final table and won ... I dunno, $126 or something like that. But, alas, got sucked out late and missed my stab at the big prize.

At least I covered most of my losses in this tourney.
