Hi xenthebrain , I have paid particular attention to all of your posts I have read , clearly you know alot about poker , do you mean by underrolled that I was in a terrible position after the river and should have folded or that I just had terrible luck , I am sorry that i dont know the expression underrolled ,
sorry to be behind on what i am sure is perfecly basic poker words

You played in a game too high for the money you have to play poker.
If you don't want to have a high risk of losing it and redeposit you have to player lower limits.

Underrolled just means playing without a big enough bankroll. Sometimes 100 BB is not a big enough bankroll to withstand the swings that are inevitable. Most regular player like to have at least 200 BB or more.

By the way, your not Zarathustra come back under a different name are you? Which wouldn't be a bad idea.

I understand the expression now thankyou both , I have spent many hours reading the forum before posting , I know I should have started on a limit or two below my current table choice , I suppose not taking the solid advice I have read in other posts isn't a good idea for me , I seen that many players in .5 / 1 dollar games had the same bank roll I did ( or maybe that is only what they could bring to the table ) I will immediately go down to 10c / 20c and see how I can progress through stages of maybe 10,000 hands . I respect the advice given by all who have posted in the forum , I don't want to get eaten by a shark straight away lol , build up my judgement pot odds / outs / reading players . In other words what i have read is learn to walk before you can run .

P.S disregarding the bankroll , was folding on the river the better option and should I have played the hand differently ? Any advice on the hand from hell would be most appreciated as a bad beat is a learning curb , I'll get over it better knowing what to do the next time this happens . For the moment I think I should fold on the river but that leaves the nagging Question was I bluffed out of the pot . Curiosity killed the cat .

You hadn't shown any strength before the flop. He had a backdoor draw to add a little value to his two big overcards. I don't think your (2x the Big Blind) bet was large enough to get him to fold.

6d 2d 7c was the flop, the turn is 9d, Jd on the turn, river Qd
Too many cards!

At most .50/1 NL games the max buy-in is $100, no matter how much you have in your account

Yes you are correct , I have not kept the hand history , from the best of my recollectin it was Jd , I am new to this and by posts I have read all remember to the exact card position , everything . I am 90% sure it was a 9 but not positive . I'll take an extra card any day of the week . .
Just wanted some advice on it sorry about the wrong turn info , I know it matters .

Possibly it was 9d on the turn and Jd on the river ..... yes , i think thats it , I knew the river was a diamond face card

P.S If i ever post again I will have a 100% recollection and a hand history on file .

I agree. It does sound like Zarathustra reborn.
