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.

Ok...this isn't a bad beat... but it just really sucks!

I'm in a 12 man tournament... get down to the final 3... these guys don't really know what they're doing... I have about 1/3 of the chips, but only about 7 or 8 bb.

I am dealer... I deal the two guys, then deal myself, but i flip over my card (10 of spades) on accident. So then I follow the rule I've always used... deal the other two guys, then myself, and i get the burn card instead of the 10 of spades i should have received. So I look down at pocket 7's utg, i raise 3x bb... sb folds, bb reraises me all in, I have to call. He flips over AJ... coin flip.

So I deal the flop... the guy says "No Kill Card, No Kill Card"... I'm like... "What?"... so I flip the cards and then realize he said no burn... wouldn't ya know it... the flop gave him a J... I look at the burn card that shouldn't have been burnt and wouldn't ya also know it, it was a 7. Turn and river were blanks, and I was out of the tournament in 3rd because of my crappy dealing.

I should have received T7 in the first place and folded preflop and still been in the tournament. Then, I should have flopped a set with my newly acquired pocket 7's. It prolly cost me $40 but it was my own fault, so it's easier to take in.
