Okay, I know that there is luck involved with playing poker, but sometimes it just makes you scratch your head and want to scream...  I am sure everyone on here has experienced bad beats, but there are so many bad plays being rewarded on this site that it is crazy. Today was a prime example... raise with QQ pre flop, 3 callers, flop comes AA K, I move all in and am called by a guy with J 8... Turn J, River J.  First how can you make that call, second why do the poker gods reward such bad play. Talked to many people on here that have simular stories, always seams like the good play gets destroyed by terrible calls with runner runner.

Like i said I know that luck is involved, but how do some of you deal  with all the bad beats, and if you want to leave your own bad beat story on here feel free.
