You want to get bad beats

By: Dany Boy NZ @ 06:40 (EST) / 271 / Comment ( 2 )

Hi everyone i have seen many blogs recently about how annoyed people are at getting "bad beats".
Here is the thing to remember, getting a bad beat means u got ur money in well ahead so if you were in a cash game or hu sitngo then the play u did was very positive ev+ if u play againts opponents who give u bad beats then you are probably also getting your money in well ahead in lots of other scenarios so your going to be profitable so dont worry about the bad beats.
If you never get bad beats againts you then this must mean your never getting your money in ahead :)
All im trying to say is try not to take bad beats like they are the end of the world :) look at them more as a compliment, u got that guy to put all his money in againts you when he was way behind and therefore you outplayed him if you continue to do that it can only mean good results in the future :) :)
