Default It's not the bad beat. It's the effort put into it that kills

I'm not complaining. I'm doing kinda ok. But I'm in this tourney and theres this guy who is playing 60% of his hands. But he doesn't seem to be all that bad. He plays alot of hands and bets agressive when he senses weaknes and sometimes he has a hand. Plus some players just give him thier chips because they think he has nothing. So I watch this guy hopeing to get my chance. For a long time this guy just owns everyone. Winning hand after hand. Then this happens.

The guy says "thats rough". Ya thanks for sharing. This didn't even bother me that much because it's gotten to where i've seen this happen so many times. It's like you cocentrate for 2 hours and you make the perfect play at the perfect time and fate steps in and says no. Oh well. Back to the drawing board.

Pocket 8's are weak and you may have known that when you were raised pre-flop, so a fold wouldn't have been out of the question. So many players put so much stock in pairs but give me K-J anyday.

Is there no better feeling than hitting trips on the flop?

Is there no worse feeling than being all-in and watching your opponents hand hit his only out that will beat you?

Yeah, I pay no attention to their chip count, I play Tight till Level 4, then turn aggressive to get my share of blinds. Kind of throws them off a bit.

Ya I knew someone would say something like that. But I had a read. I knew the chances of him having something better than trip 8's were small. I made the right play. I know that. It's just the BB got me thats all.

yea that is bad luck. I hate waiting for a hand to finally bag the elephant and when you do get the hand, lady luck steps in and you lose. All that patience for nothing.

Well it happens thats why poker is so fun, when you get to be on the other end of the luck.
