Why I play on Pokerstars

My journey as to why i play on Pokerstars
Send PM

A few months ago I played The Big Bang and tried to be aggresive playing virtually any good hand and raising often. That didn't work and I busted about an hour in. I railed the rest of the tournament and watched other players techniques during that tournament and also in the next one in the early stages and saw they were playing mostly premium hands like AA KK QQ AK majority of allin preflops. So in todays Big Bang I decided to do just that. I early on got in with QQ vs AK and survived to my shock. 2nd worst badbeat ever happened I can't believe the RNG can give players these type of suckouts everytime your in a critical hand its beyond god like


He was raising often and shoving one time with a hand like JQ so I had a good read that if I just raised the minimum he would re-raise or push allin but of course he gets runner runer to make a straight and then I eventually bust to him with 8BB with AJs vs his 10's. Where was my luck when I needed it? Just sick!
