Had you recently opened an account or put money in your account?

He must have. No one gets that kind of hand without having done so. Next hand he probably had 8-3 offsuit and folded! He didn't know that if you just deposited money that's an all-in kind of hand. Three eights are bound to flop. :P

Kidding aside, I've heard a lot of speculation that this a "true-ism". I don't buy it, but it sure does feel that way sometimes.

No, opened it about a month ago, no deposits since. Opened with $50, now at $145.

The day before this I had a set of tens and lost to a royal flush (also at Party). He later said that he had called support and they told him he gets a jacket or something for the royal. I also called support, am waiting for a response. Anyone ever hear of this?

Also, I posted this hand at another site, and one person said I should have bet on the flop. I disagreed. Thoughts?

Also, I posted this hand at another site, and one person said I should have bet on the flop. I disagreed. Thoughts?Not only should you have bet, but you should consider re-raising if raised. Your hand on the flop is VERY strong. You have an open ended str draw, the second nut flush draw, and a single draw to stone cold nuts. Also of note if you truly have a draw to the royal (in other words one of your opponents doesn't have the king of clubs) then you are also drawing to the "nut" flush. If you only bet a made hand your giving away too much (in terms of deception and value). You need to bet your draws early so that when you hit them you will get more calls (for 2 reasons: the pot will be large and it will make it harder for them to put you on draw).

Go out and pick up a copy of Winning Low Limit Hold'em by Lee Jones. I got this book for free on the cruise and after reading the first couple of chapters I have a very high opinion of this book.

Nice.

I've played a lot of free money at pokerstars and have yet to even see a Royal. I have personally had 6-7 straight flushes and have seen just as many...just no royals.

I don't understand the logic in that arguement. Why would they reward people who recently putting money in an account. If we do find out this is true, I'll just always put money in just prior to playing, and then withdrawal it at the earliest possible time. (unless of course, they take withdrawals into account).

Again, I don't believe it to be true. Why might they do it? To get people to tell their friends how easy it is to win. They all sign up, they eventually lose. Hopefully then, they put more money in.

There are all kinds of conspiracy theories. Have you heard the one where people get "rewarded" on the flop by calling/raising with poor hands in order to assure that the house gets its maximum rake on every hand played? Got 7-2 offsuit? Play it! Raise with it!

I don't buy these for one second, but when you start getting bad hands dealt to you time, after time, after time, you start wondering why it could be? Surely the reason I keep losing can't be that I'm a bad poker player?!? Nah, that can't be it! :wink: It must be a flaw in the randomness program the site uses.

Re: Bama

Yes, I've since run the odds against the made Aces, and I was even a 55% favorite over that. My mistake.

I already have Jones' book, and have read it three times. Very good book. We're up $95 at Party .50/1.00 so far, but obviously still a lot to learn.

this is why i check out hand histories in groups. lets me know if i have gotten cards or not based on the expected number. now if i could just create something to tell me how often i get a good flop, and how often i hit on a flush draw.

My downfall this weekend seemed not to be in the lack of good starting hands, but instead to be on not hitting draws, while other hit draws if i was top paired. of course this is just perception, but who knows for sure. maybe i just played poorly this weekend.

btw atleast twice this past weekend i flopped 4 to the royal, neither time did i hit either the straight or the flush, one of the flops was open ended (ie could have made the 9-K flush. Quite frustrating especially cause each time had many people in the pot and it would have paid off in the 20 big bet range in a limit game

My weekend was nothing but bad beats. These 3 were the worst that I can remember, all in single table tourneys.

#1 - Dealt KK, OTB, raise pre-flop, get called by 2 callers. Flop comes back K96, rainbow. I'm all-in, get called by A-10, turn card - Ace, river - you guessed it, Ace. What is he thinking calling an all-in with that?!?!

#2 - Dealt KQ offsuit, I'm in early position, I call, several callers, no raisers. Flop Q72, rainbow. Checks all the way around. Turn - 4. I make value bet to see where my top pair are, get a raise though not big. I take a chance on this guy, who plays every single stinking hand. I doubt he has a pocket pair, he'd have raised earlier. I put him on top pair but not a great kicker. I move all-in, he calls. Q-5. I'm happy. I read him right. River - say hello to another 5!

#3 - Dealt QQ, late position, pre-flop all-in (blinds were high, 6-7 players still left, several callers, I want to pick up these blinds). One caller, A-6 suited. Flop, 66x. Bye-bye me.

#1 was by far the worst beat in terms of the guys play.
#2 was a mis-read by a bad player that got lucky. (Hey, think of the 19 times you won hands like this...not the 1 time the guy goofed but lucked out)
#3 Guy got desperate and went for it....probably had a 10% or so chance of beating you so oh well.

Nineteen times I won hands like this? I wish. I like to think I don't make such lousy calls, unless I'm short stacked and need to gamble.

That's the way the ball bounces. Or cards fly as the case may be.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but based on what you described, you won the hand with Kings full of Aces. Opponent just had a set of Aces. I would assume his second card paired.

Sorry, correct. I just looked at the transcript. He had A-9. Typing to fast for my own good. I must have been getting annoyed just thinking about it again.

Lost to a royal tonight :(

tons of bad beats tonight too many people chasing and hitting.

however thanks to one hand in which i won $36. i manage to escape even. it was only a .50/1.00 table

was dealt QJ
flop T97rainbow.
turn 8
river 7

river scares me but luckily someone had hit bottom straight and someone else had the J for another straight.

That's huge for those tables. I won my biggest pot at a .50/1 this weekend, $32.

Had KK in LP, lots of callers, I raised. Flop was K99! Someone (a 9? I never found out) bet, I raised, 1 other stayed in, capped it. Turn was a blank, lots of betting. River was a third diamond. 9? dropped out, other guy had made his flush and we capped it.

Very good weekend, I won $135, plus got a $25 deposit bonus and a free holdem book for opening a new account.

My party account started at $50 and is now up to $335.
