flopping aaa and l0sing!


Recommended Posts

I saw your post and couldn't help but chuckle to myself... I was playing in a NL SNG the other day online and I was dealt A :)  A :D ; two red aces, my favorite hand. A short stack who acted before me went allin and I reraised.  An early postion limper called and the flop was A :)  10  :club: 9 :D  I bet the other caller allin being aware of all the possible draws out there. He thinks forever and folds and the turn was the J :)  giving the short stack the nut straight with KQ.  The river was no help and the short stack robbed my aces.  We've all had bad beats like this and when you are running bad (like me lately) it seems to be happening all the time.  But hang in there and the long run expectations are great against players like these.
Only difference between your bad beat and mine is that your flop was a lot more dangerous than mine. With mine, there were no flush or straight draws at all on the flop. The other guy didn't even have a pair only to get runner runner for his gut shot straight. It's never racking for sure though for the both of us to lose with Trip aces on the flop!

Don't you hate it when you Flop Trip AAA and lose? I was playing 3/6 limit holdem over the weekend over at Hollywood Park Casino in Los Angeles.  I bet preflop, one guy raises, another guys calls, and I reraise, the other 2 guys call. The Flop comes AK2. I come out betting as I was the small blind, next guy calls, and the original raiser folds. Turn Card is a T for a board of AK2 T. I bet the other guy calls. I tell the guy next to me if I lose this hand I'm gone! Next card is a J for a board of AK2TJ. I check as I have a very bad feeling of what's about to happen. The guy bets I call, and he turns over Q6 OFF FU*KIN' SUIT!! What a hell of a suckout with runner runner. This guy had no reason to even call the 2 raises preflop!! Yet he called every raise and every bet just to get runner runner and a Gut Shot Straight on the river! I may quit poker because of idiots like these! Argh&$@
I dont want to be a smartass here. Just wondering, did you think he had AQ before you saw his hand? That would fit into the calls and all that. I know he didnt have it, but it would have made sense to think about it. Only one more bet to see the hand though so why not?Anyway, I totally sympathize. Yesterday, I had a set of tens with a 6 and an undercard on the flop and someone sucked out two more sixes for quads! Flop, turn and river were capped! He had a 67 offsuit. I stopped playing due to tilt on that one

I had no idea what the guy had who was calling me and I didn't really care. I knew I had the best flop and there were no draws for anything until the turn. When that T hit, I did think about the possibility of a straight out there, but I bet out and the guy called. Once that river J hit, I knew I was screwed. At least your guy had something pre-flop to be able to call. The guy who was calling me had squat pre-flop as well as after the flop and his cards weren't even suited! Can you say "TILT"

I had a bad beat ust as bad as this one but it wasnt for as much money. I was playing 5c/10c and raised preflop with AA. Flop came down A/Q/2 with 2 spades. I bet one player calls. turn comes an offsuit 5 I bet the guy calls again. River comes an offsuit 3 I bet, guy raises, I reraise he caps it and I call. He turns over A/4!! Hits the runner/runner straight to beat me on the river. Even though it was 5c/10c I was still pissed as hell about it, if it had been any higher limit I probly would have just quit for the day, and gone to chill out. Gone off to smoke some weed, or drink a few beers just to get my mind off it.

Hey there.. sorry to hear about the crappy run-down. I find that in those situations, it helps to tell myself, "he's TRYING to give me his money. He's TRYING to give me his money". It's only the cards screwed up his plan to pay you off. I also remind myself that if I could see his cards, I would beg him to make that call and I'd take my chances. Hang in there.

A month ago i was playing  no limit at a house game. I said before receiving give me some aces. Well i got what i asked for the very first hand. A :D A :)   So i raise the pot 2 bucks. Everyone is like first hand raise so they all called. The flop comes with the A :)  but with two more diamonds. I lead out to bet 5 bucks 2 calls.the next card comes a blank. I know these guys both have a diamond I am praying no more diamonds. I bet 5 more bucks. Both call. The next card comes a diamond. I am crying inside . I check. one guy goes 10 bucks, the other guy raises i fold. Tuns out at the end one guy had the J diamonds the other guy had Qof diamonds.
I wouldn't really cry too much about this one. You gave them odds to chase the flush to the river. Assuming there area at least 6 people playing at the table, $2 PF by all of you, Pot is $12. Bet 5 on the flop ($17) - There's 3 to 1 on their money to see the turn2 callers. Pot is now $27Bet another 5 ($32 now) - There's the 6 to 1 to see the river. Bet harder on both the flop and turn and you will chase them out. If not, they will pay you off more when they lose.

That's exactly why I always say "No, I apologize, Officer, I was just kinda cruising, ya know?  Going with the flow."  -- sounds cheesy, but I've gotten out of so many tickets, and I got a ticket reduced because of that.  I was going like 85 or something in a 55, and I said that, and the guy goes "well, I wrote you a ticket for 80, that will save you a lot of money and such."
Try getting off of a ticket like that from a Round Rock, TX cop (Williamson County) - I got one for 68 in a 60 on i35... $160 for 8 over

Ouch, that's pretty bad. I remember a number of years ago when my family and I were heading up to see relatives in Canada from Maryland we were driving through Minnesota and my dad got a speeding ticket. I forgot was the speed limit was, but he was 17 over ... and the cost of the fine was 17 bucks! It was unbelievable. I guess since it was all farm land and whatnot they just didn't want to punish people for speeding through there but it was pretty funny.

This basically shows one of the biggest differences between limit and no-limit. You raised everytime it came to you preflop. You bet out on the flop and the turn. When a possible straight hit on the turn, you checked. I may have bet out on the turn, because then if I get re-raised I know he hit the straight and I can fold...but the way you did it makes sense too, and you lost the same amount. You probably played this hand correct all the way down...don't feel bad. The odds are in your favor. If you play that same hand the same way every time, you'll come out on top.The big thing to ask yourself is how you would've played that in No Limit (unless you're strictly a limit player?) I would assume with AA you would've raised, and then came back with a strong reraise (possibly all in) after being reraised preflop. The flop is where you would've had options. Different people would play this different ways here. However, since the turn brought the possiblity of a staright on the river, I assume you would've pushed all in or bet big there, to scare off a draw, correct?The difference with limit is you can't scare someone with a significant bankroll (or someone with little experience and a "feeling") off a draw like that. They can just keep calling $6, and hit a straight like that. Personally, I fold that preflop, and DEFINITELY post flop, but oh well. Take comfort in knowing that you can beat these people most of the time...the only positive thing they can do is issue the occasional bad beat...you were an unlucky recipient. I think we've all been beat runner-runner by someone who should've folded. Oh well, it happens. Personally, I would've kept my chips in that game, maybe even rebought, and bled that guy dry as he continued to make bad calls. you may have missed a chance to get your chips back, but from the sounds of this post, youre STILL shaken up by this bad beat. get it out of your system and get back in there.

Even with the possibility of the guy getting a turn card with a possible straight, I did bet when that 10 came on the turn. When he didn't raise me, I knew he was still on a draw. When that darn river hit the J, I knew I was dead. I had been ahead at the table for the most part anyways and was ahead in chips, so I got the heck out of there after that bad beat. Like I said to one of the guys at that table after that turn card hit, "I'm outta here if I lose this hand". When I saw the guys Q6 off suit, I felt like I had two choices at that point. 1.) Punch the guy in the face for being a moron for calling 2 raises preflop and continuing to call every bet I made after the flop and on the turn, or 2.) Get out of Dodge and fast! I chose the later as you can see or I'd be in jail for assault. :D
