Pokers Stars Pick and Choose

By: vanrigger @ 14:45 (EST) / 1 / Comment ( 1 )

I can't understand how some players get burnt continuously on the river and yet the people with higher stacks constantly hit their card. I have played many tournaments and played pocket aces or kings and then lose to a player that has a big stack and call with low cards and pull off straights or full houses. I just find that no matter what type of hand you have, you will 9 times out of 10 lose to the higher stacks, preventing you from advancing any further in the tournament. It just seems to me that the higher you are in the rankings the more the cards will fall in your favor no matter what your pocket cards are. Just my opinion but I think things should be fair all away around, Losing strong hands to a week one on the river is not what I call proper, especially when you can't even get a stack worth more than $3,000, and the higher rank players are pulling off mega stacks on stupid cards.
