Fuzzy Poker Play

How to suck at poker and other stories
Send PM

I know it seems like I like to have a moan but when you have QQ and the board is Q38 (two diamonds), you expect to win when you you see the other guy has AK (no diamonds). Not sure what more I can do. People keep telling me, yes just play good poker and eventually you win but I can't sse that myself. Dunno if it's just a low stakes thing when people will just call with anything when they are clearly well behind, and get runner runner to win, but... I just don't know. Is it quantity of games? Should I just be playing more to even out the rubbish? Hmmm....

With AT and the flop A25, I make pot-sized bets all the way to the river, (a ten came on the turn, and I'm betting huge) yet the guy just flat calls all the way with 32 and hits his unlikely straight on the river for a huge stack, while I'm crippled. I'm sure there are people out there playing without a fold button. Oh, so he has an inside straight draw and bottom pair, but come on...

These two hands happened within seconds of each other in seperate $1 MTTs, which is why I felt the need to let off steam on here. It's a regular occurence though, losing to trash.

I'm still ahead (since my last final table finish) but wish I had the luck of the donks. 

I am trying to have a zen-like feeling towards the whole thing, but it's hard.

Oh well, I shall push on.

PS. As I'm writing this the 32 guy just busted. Huge stack he had, didn't even make the money. That's life. Oh wait... these donks remind me of Jurassic Park, when you see one of those seemingly harmless little dinosaurs. You're thinking one little one is no bother. Not even two. Then suddenly you're swamped by them, and it's goodnight Las vegas.
