    Tough Loss in Live Tournament.

    First let me set the scene. My Nephew, Niece and I went to Winstar Casino to play in a $60 buy-in Tournament. Start with 5,000 chips with 20 minute blinds. There are 160 players and it pays 16 spots with $2200 going to winner. my Nephew goes out before first break, Niece goes out before second break.

    Coming back from second break I have right at 3,000 chips and the blinds are 1,000 and 500. Third hand back I get pocket 9's so I go all in with 2 callers. My 9's hold up, now setting on 10,000 in chips. Two hands later I'm on the button, UTG raises to 3500, one caller in front of me. I go all in and both call me. There's now more than 30,000 chips in the pot. I roll over my pocket Aces, UTG 10/J suited and the other player has pocket Queens. So for all you guys who think bad stuff only happens on-line, yep player catches another Queen and I finish 49th. Out the door I go. Average chip stack is around 15,000 at that time, So I "Would" have had double the average. That's poker.

    Needless to say that one stung for a bit. Take care y'all

    Tough break, had you won you def would have made some big cash with your skills.

    also, note that a majority of the players who claim online is rigged are losing players. Even if people are cheating and the software is not a legit dealer - good consistent playing and being observant can overcome it. Excluding the UB-Absolute scandal of course.

    It's Poker Folks

    I have been sucked out on and have sucked out on others many times. All I can say is beats are a part of the game and if people have not learned to deal with it then you should probably stop playing poker immediately. It sucks to loose but as long as you are a progressive player you learn from the mistakes other make and simply become better at it, just like any other sport practice makes perfect.

    I never said it doesn't happen in live events. I just know that it doesn't happen as often. There was nothing either one of you could do at that point. I don't blame him for calling and I don't blame you for pushing. It is just a poker thing there. It is not like the J-10 suited caught runner runner for a flush to beat you both like what would happen online. Better luck next time.

    I sure hope the "YOU", you are referring to, is not me. I've played close to 3 million hands, yes that's 3,000,000 online in the last 10 years. So I'm very much aware of the ups and downs. If you were thinking I was saying it was a bad beat ,then you may want to read my response above in post #5 in this thread. If you are under the age of 35, I was probably playing poker before your daddy was born.

    I was just sharing my experience of playing. And the let down after the loss. If you notice the last statement said, it stung for a bit. I wrote this 2 hours after the it happened and was already moving on. So before your "THIRD" post you may want to choose to read the thread closely before making a blanket statement.

    Have a good day.
