The first one, i swear pockets are just cursed for me, i must win less than 50% of my pockets draws.

2nd one, who the hell calls all in chasing a K on the river on the bubble? sick to death of losing to players like this.

The first one's just a cooler running QQ into AA.

The second one is totally different. Ax has to bet the flop to price the opp out. Once the opp hits an open-ended straight draw, they DO have the correct odds to try to draw.. and should call.

--this is just my opinion im kinda new so very likely im wrong, would love someone to give me opinion on this post (if that makes sense :P )

well, thats why i dont play ace rag out of position. because ure not later to act u check the flop. if u were behind him u should bet the flop in order to protect ur pair, only hand that would beat urs in that situation would be aq which u can easily assume he doesnt have since he didnt raise pre-flop.

i think u made a mistake not betting on the flop but leading out like this out of position can get u on a mine sometimes (or at least in a tough situation) so i kinda understand why u didnt.
