Something is going on and im so sick of it. Seems like my streaks come and go, 2 days im running hot and win everything I play. Yesterday and today i have no luck, if im all in on a coin toss even if im ahead i will lose, if i get it in with the best hand i lose, I had aces cracked by 4/5 and i just have terrible luck.

this one pisses me off so much. I only have $43 in my bankroll now so I'm only playing $1-$2 buy ins, but these players are soo bad and when Im only unlucky like today I can't possibly win.

Im posting the hand history but I think I played this dead on perfect and of course the one mother F****** donk calls and wins.

Basic Summary:

Im lateish posiition, short stack is UTG or UTG+1 he makes a min raise, most players are calling. I have pocket queens so I want to get rid of any limpers so I make it 210 to call (BB is only 30, the call I had was only 60 and I pretty much raised it to the size of the pot)

Player to my left has a decent chip stack, probably around the 2k mark (9 person KO sit and go) and he makes the call.

Short stack shoves for his remaining few hundred chips over my raise, it folds around to me so I make the play of reshoving to isolate the all in to get the knockout. the player to my left thinks about it and makes the call. So im thinking hes gotta have a good hand maybe AK and hes just being stupid but he turns over freaking A10 OFF.

If he had AK he woulda beat me, fine AK is barely acceptable with 2 all ins maybe thinking im making a move but still ace 10.

oh donks how i hate you

how would you guys play this hand. I mean you can't expect a guy to call with ace 10 so unbelievable

For what its worth you played the hand right but I have seen weird shit since being on PS. People calling all ins hoping to catch a flush with 1 card suit on the flop. I was in 1 PSO entry game and 3 guys all agreed that if you have an ace its an automatic all in shove. I mean A 2 os is not an all in in my book but all i can say is welcome to donk poker. Ive had AA cracked by 4 5 suited myself where the guy caught a flush after I preflop raised 15x BB - the monkeys are out there and they get lucky sometimes. Just keep your head up and remember poker isnt a 1 hand game in the long grind if you play correctly you will do fine.
