was a live 120 sit and go at the casino, top 3 get paid, i keep coming in 4th or 5th and im basically broke from it

Well...if you're playing with good players, everyone will fold with that strong a bet and pocket eights. The player only called, giving you a good chance for all of his chips because he isn't a smart player. Are you complaining that everyone didn't fold or that he hit the 9% (slightly higher since 10-J would have also won for him)? Either way, you were only given the chance at all of his chips because he wasn't a smart player. If you're going to be playing with players like that all the time, keep what you're doing because it will pay off. That said, I wouldn't be too upset because he was a slight favorite pre-flop.


I know he was a slight favorite preflop.. ive just had a horrible run the past few weeks and it anoys me people dont know how to fold, i wouldve been fine with taking what was already in the pot then and waiting out players to knock each other out

I hear you there. Most of the people I play with are pretty solid, but there's one who is a complete chump. It's nice to take his money, for the most part, but it really, really sticks with you when he hits.
