Hi

I know that its just the game and you need to accept it but.........


Just lost 3 stacks tonight. Using poker stove I worked out i was a 80% favourite at LEAST in all of them. One i was 88%.

Losing three stacks when money in as big favourite is tough for 1 night!! haha

Although i'm sure the top players here would have stories to make my one night downer seem like a drop in the ocean

You must be using poker stove wrong.

Good job OP. Here is my best run of 5 hands. Went to the local B&amp;M with $300 to play the 100 buy in game. Saw 5 hands played 3. Post flop the worst I was was 15% to loose. Did the math when I get home and realized I loose all 3 of these hands 1 in 1260 times I go all in against my opponents hands. I proceeded to get drunk.

It can last for up to 1.6 million hands. Prepare to lose 77 buyins in row, then be a break-even player. Good luck.

"The only time you can be truly justified in complaining about losing with an equity edge is if you had your opponent drawing dead on the turn and the dealer dealt a 6th card to give your opponent the best hand, and no-one said anything and the floor ruled that the 6th card was legal and there was nothing you could do about it"

1) move up
2) get it in 3 times as 20% favorite
3) win all three
4) profit
