Aces are down right awful!

Two final tables tonight in cpc qualifiers. One a six seater. Aces come up and twice I lose to a set of Queens!.
Another final table, I flop a set and lose to a higher set on river! Aaarggh!

Thats five defeats with AA on the spin now! I am sure thats a statistical impossibility! With my luck though, I suspect there is more to come!

I knocked one player out tonight. I had a made flush and he went all in with a pair of 9s! Thats the sort of bet I like! Spouks1 you have been named!

As for conquerors, well Anna 42 had QQ against my AA in once CPC final. Sun_Deshi my friend, decide to call my all in reraise with AJ against my AK, of course the J came up! Deshi how could you!

Keithmen helped prove my theory that you players cant throw away AK in the 15k. I try a move with A5, I call with the intention of moving all in with a low flop. A 536 is perfect for my plan. He calls my over the top all in bet with AK and of course the river brings a K!

Wadeking7 knocked me out fair and square though, Short stacked with AT a AKQ board gives me options to move, he calls with AA, as you would! So AA wins for others then!

A shockingly bad night with the cards, luckily the cash games which I building Mpps with, proved to be fruitful. Giving me an impressive £3.07 profit on the night!

I am looking forward to a night where my cards hold up, let alone win when I am behind!!

See you soon!

Geeeeeezzzz mate.... I know the feeling. It's like being kicked when you're down!....I think if you could ever be bothered to look at my game logs for the last month or 2 then you would find that you are not the only one going through mill....my bad beats are far far far worse if you read my game logs then I think you would feel loads better....As for advice, look no further than our friend Andy 007apr... With a WSOP 2006 main event $15k package a LOQ $15k package and this week a CPC package and as I write he is heads up in the £300 buy in High rollers...OMG he just won it another £5,850..excuse me while I go now to reflect on things...

I've been thinking about this play and i'm not a lover of it, if you think your ahead why not check raise all in as imo your only getting called by a better hand 90% of the time...so if you do have a read surely it's best to let the preflop raiser bet again?
Also i hate the stop and go on a low flop, i'd rather do it on a J or Q high flop.
