Dropped a couple of $10+1 buy-ins the last couple of days. Par for the course. With five left in one SnG, blinds at 100/200, stack around 900, I go all-in with QQ. Get called by K6s. King on the flop. 6 on the turn for good measure. IGHN.

Almost identical scenario in the second one. I have JJ to KQ. Queen on flop. Buh-bye.

Not horrific beats. They happen in every single SnG. Someone beats 2-1 odds or 5-4 odds to pair an overcard. Nothing to get wildly pissed about. To cash in a SnG, you must win at least a couple of these. And, you’re not ALWAYS going to have the best hand with your money in the pot. Remember, AKs is an underdog to 33. A lot of people don’t seem to know this, bloggers included.

Remember that the next time your AK is cracked by baby pockets and you’re ready to bitch about the “fish” and “chasers”. If he had a pocket pair and you had the Ax, YOU are the fish, not him.

But also remember that if you come over the top with a baby pair you are virtually assuring yourself of a negative EV in a hand, so you better pretty damn sure the rest of the hand will go fold, fold, fold....

Interesting blog you have here, I landed here on accident. I was searching for something else and came across your site. I found it pretty interesting and entertaining. I got you book marked.

I will pop back in from time to time to see what you have new here.

My site is a bit different than yours, but just as entertaining and educational, I run a scrapbooking memory related site pertaining to scrapbooking memory related articles.
