Default And the bad beats continue

Ive had about 4-5 small SnG MTT's where Ive hit bad beats in a row. Heres the list

1.KK gets cracked by QJ which hits two pair on the flop
2.KK gets cracked by the lucky river straight
3.AA gets cracked by 67, which hits trip 7s on the turn
4.AA gets cracked by K3 which hits trip 3s on the turn
5.AK gets cracked by AQ after going all in on the flop by a river Q
6.KK gets cracked by the same guy with another lucky river card for two pair

Ive had so many bad beats in the past few tournaments, its getting ridiculous. Im tempted just to muck Aces and Kings now since they havent won me anything in the past week

Why don't you take some time off the tourneys and play cash games for a while? I find there are fewer bad beats there.

J7 vs AK Allin preflop and you LOST !? WOW

Learn some odds man. And think of bad beats that way; If you knew what they had, would you want them to call ?

What a dumb comment. Of course I would want them to call if I knew their cards - except for the AK I had all of them pretty heavily dominated.

I had a very nice bad beat yesterday . ( Not saying here I was happy about it).

S&G NL. Blinds $50/$100, 7 players left.

I'm short stacked with $800 left.

I am in middle position and get AKo

I raise to $400 and SB calls. ( Pot was $1000 now . one limper folded)

Flop: 10/J/Q rainbow

SB bets $400

I type LOL, and call with my NUT Straight.

SB shows AQ and has one pair.

Turn: 10

River Q.

That will teach me to type LOL before the hand is over.

Wowza that's a bad beat!

I had a bit of a bad beat last night. I was playing with the last of my money on betfair poker (not much money and I just wanted to have some fun and if I lost it I didn't mind as I'm never playing there again! It's crap! Yeh, probably tilting a bit, but who cares).

Anyway, I sat at a short-handed table and I had been watching this one very aggressive guy. I picked a pot off him by reraising him once and he folded to me so I was getting some sort of reads on him. Then I pick up queens and raise all in as I know he'll call with muck. He calls with 8T diamonds. The flop comes nice, no 8, no T, no diamonds. Turn, 8, river 10..... I lost the remaining $8 in my account yay! Yeh I know I shouldn't have done that sort of thing, but was looking for a bit of fun and a gamble. It didn't pay off with 9:1 odds!!!

Seems like getting all in with QQ against 8T was exactly what you do want to do. Especially for cash (and maybe even in a tournament).

If you think AK is dominating J7, youre the only dumbass here and you should learn ABC poker.

Your such a dumb motherfucker, I never said AK dominates J7 but it is a favorite. AA and KK were the dominant favorites that lost to joke hands like 67, K3, and other bullshit. Read before you open your mouth so you dont sound like a moron next time, ok?
