How lucky can you get?

In the month of Nov., I drew 2 straight flushes. I think i posted one of them. Both times, i took the stack of someone with the nut flush. This means i got incredibly lucky twice in both hands. Image getting stacked with a nut flush, and no pair on the board.
I think i’ve used up all my rights to complain when people draw out on me.
Here’s the other one

opps. there was a pair on the second one.

It was opponent who decided to shove even though there was very obviously a possible straight flush and/or a full house on the board. I would have called a half pot bet on the river with his hand.

this is an example of why you blow someone off their hand if ya can. i really wasn’t in love with a pair of deuces, but for 1BB a street, heads up, i’ll buy a card.

That is what’s known as The Magic River.
Its all so very exciting to see the nut flush get clobbered by the unlikely boat in a 2 person hand. Why play boring 1-pair 2-pair poker when you can play here. If you had folded to a bigger bet you would have missed out on some high entertainment. People who fold too much miss out on these kinds of thrills.

@waidus ,
This is a case of strategies conflicting. Normal SnG strategy goes right out the window in this type of SnG. The Promotion tracks both KOs and Modified T-pts, its cheap to enter, and Leaderboard gives generous payout and rewards for volume of games played. I’m sure many ppl play fast/loose, more often, in these… me included.

What does this mean? Serious question though.
