Really, can you blame me for being a tilty whiny entitled baby when my day is mostly hands like this?
87 vs 83, flop trip 888, but just chop the pot because the rest of the board is higher than our kickers. Hand calculator says I’m 34% to win, 59% to tie. Ok, fine.
A5o, small-stacked, shove it pre, get called very wide by A2s, flop AA55, looking good, board runs out 99 to invalidate my 2 pair, 8-kicker on the board for another split. I’m an 80% favorite to win the hand on the flop.
AQ vs JT, and I shove, flop top pair QQ, Q96K8, he’s got the 9-K, I’ve gotten the shaft again. 65% to win on the flop, drawing dead on the Turn.
AK vs A2, preflop bidding war, we get all-in pre, flop Aces, looking good, he rivers a deuce. 71% to win preflop, 84% to win on the turn, V hits one of 7 outs.
76s, flop 746, get all-in on the turn, because your opponent was gifted 85 by the poker gods and has the straight. 77% to lose on the flop here, and YEP probability works this time!
If this happened to you all day and wiped out all your wins for the day, how would you keep your spirits up?
