Sad. If i'm mathematically ahead shouldn't i win more than i lose these? Because so far I get stomped no matter how i play my hands.

Bad luck but I gues you forgeting then you geted lucky so at the end off the day things even. Selective memory. Also I would raise preflop.

Yes, but only in the long term
On any one hand the most you can run it is twice (turn run it twice on and even then you need villains to also turn it on)

It's annoying and frustrating when these hands lose, but you will be making money in the long run by playing well

Hi herrpderrp,

I think this hand was played okay. I would stick to 3x preflop and we can make an argument for calling flop or raising smaller. The flop is seemingly dry here and the only draws they could have are 65 and T8. We are beat by 99 and that's basically it. My plan is to get the money in with middle set and you should show profit here on the long run. Not something I would worry myself too much about. Variance happens.

Perfectly played, I love reraising sets on flop. You got it in good, but you got lost in the hood. It was a bad beat in the heat
