The ramblings and mumblings of a wannabe poker pro

Very Very Pissed Off!

I am very very pissed off right now, I have just lost a huge pot with a set of queens when the river gave the winner a set of kings, added to this I have lost my last two Sit-N-Go’s by being river’ed its been a terrible night and I am fucking sick of loosing countless favorable situations!

Here’s my pain in full pictorial form :

This may have been avoided by a straight push all-in, I’m boggled as much as you are why I didn’t, but the result is still has unpleasant.

This fucking idiot called my all-in push on the turn, where he had only a 15% chance of winning, as he says “he had to take a look”.

I’ve still only played very few NL cash games, but this is twice my set has lost to a higher set made on the river, I am more then a little pissed off about it, I’m like the new fucking Mike Matusow or something!

According to Poker Stove, I was a 88% favorite to win the hand on the flop, and a 96% favorite to win on the turn.

EDIT : I continue some good play on a new table, and regain a chunk of my loss from the set vs set hand and pick up 2 FPP’s, but I’m still really disappointed about not taking that pot down.

I was about to kick the crap out of my computer screen after this :

Twice, in the last two games now I’ve made a set on the turn, and my opponent made a higher set on the river, I’m not happy 😦

Looking to kill some time until a tournament stars I sit in another 18 player Sit-N-Go. I’ve just witnessed a few crazy plays so I buckle in for a bumpy few rounds until most of the idiots are busted.

I find QQ in the CO and raise to 4xBB, it gets re-raised from the BB, I now my hand is good, but its too early in the tournament for a re-raise, don’t want to go broke to an Ax that may hit, so I just call, the button calls behind me.

The flops all baby cards, so I lead out, the button calls and the BB folds. The turn gives me a set, now I’m sure I’m ahead but it could also have completed a flush draw so I lead out to see if I’m getting re-raised. If the turn made this guy a flush I’m sure he would re-raise me here, as he just calls I feel I’m way ahead of maybe an under pair or AK/AQ thats hanging on for an ace or king.

The river brings a king, so I check, hoping my show of weakness will persuade my opponent to move all-in, he’s pushed a few times already so this was easily in is nature to do it with AJ, but I was hoping he had AK, and pushed thinking he was ahead.

I get my wish, but loose the pot.
