It is not like they are tougher,

but I can't seem to cash for the life of me now.

I still think the $6 Full Tilt 2 tabler for the tokens is a gold mine. Which means I am 0 for 5 in my last attempts. I use to hit 75% of them. What happened?

It isn't that the play is better. I keep watching people push with gutshot or flush draws on the turn. Making calls with 3rd pair for all their chips. The games are quite nice.

The super aggressive types are winning right now. I have tried to adjust but I am card dead as well. Or what feels like being card dead. I haven't raised too many pots lately because I have had weak hands.

When I do get some good hands, I am up against better hands or get sucked out on. Tonight, it was pushing with A Q (I had a small stack) vs the aggro type and he had Q Q. Or pushing with K K against another super aggro who had Q Q and flopped the set.

It has been a bit frustrating but I haven't lost much. That is the good side. Patience should pay off. But in the meantime, I will vent.

Which reminds me...why do people bitch about poker sites as they play? On Sunday, 3 players were bitching up a storm about PokerStars in a MTT. One guy got sucked out on (A 4o hit his straight on the river to beat 10 10 ) and blasted PokerStars for the next 10 minutes. If you hate the site, then why play there idiot? I should have gone for the tilt move and blasted him but I didn't.

Don't like a site? Go to one you do like. This ain't rocket science people. Plus, we do not want to hear you whining about your beats. It happens. Get over it. No site will hit more flushes, 2 or 3 outers or miracle 5 on the river than any other.

Time to get back on the horse and ride this one out.

just got bounced in 14th-ish, when my flopped flush got beat by a rivered boat.

Exactly what I am talking about!

Beck said...

Meh. Chalk it up to variance.

Think of it this way: what's easier, winning 75% of the time for an extended period, or getting bounced by bad luck 5 times in a row? Definitely variance.

Incidentally, you have no idea how much Stars is paying me to go around telling people they're not rigged. $$$ BABY!

Time to switch card markers! =0)

Yeah bitching about a site or a suckout is so 2004;)

Bitching about the bastard that slowplayed a set of Kings on me the other night, that's hot.

Drizztdj said...

Can I bitch about a site that I win at?


End of line.

Poker Stars is definilty rigged, how else could I be winning?

Donkeypuncher said...

Yay. After 2 more attempts, I finally won a token.
