First off a few responses to my adoring public.
Judging from the few posts I have read, I am concluding that you are new to poker, read a few books, and expect immediate riches
No. Actually I have been play for a few years. It drives me INSANE when these people suckout because THEY ALWAYS DO. Do I ever suckout? Sure. Like once in a blue moon. However my 50-50's are like 10-90's and my 80-20's are like 40-60's. It is the truth. I do not expect my DOMINANT (laugh) hands to hold up anymore because they never do.
Can't imagine the name calling if Hoy's set of fours would have held up vs. KK.
I think that one re-suck on the river saved me going over MEGA TILT to SUPER EXTRA MEGA TILT.
All I really want to do is win one. That is it. I see people who make the worse calls ever win all the time. It is just sickening. It is true, Poker is gambling. It has nothing to do with skill or cards or anything. You might as well push with any two at random intervals. I hope Congress bans this crap.
It is pretty funny that I have not had this happen live. Do not get me wrong. I have had some suckouts vs Flush drawers and things like that. The players are ten times worse live, they get money in the pot with a lot worse hands, and somehow I seem to win. I guess it might be because it is all new and fresh so I have different expectations. I have seen ALOT bad beats live. I do not think online is rigged. Not sure why I seem to do so much better live. It is an interesting questions I am mulling.
Sometimes I wonder if I could corrupt online Poker. At the live games raises are insane pre-flop and flop bets are nasty. At the 100/NL at Foxwoods the pre-flop raise is anywhere between 10-20$ with everyone having $100 stacks and you might get 5-6 callers. If you played 100/NL fairly tight and when you had a raisable hand popped it 10-15$ I wonder what adjustments people would make online.
So on to the challenge. I am going to play a run of MTTs. I will have to figure out which ones and how many. I am going to keep a spreadsheet of all of these games. On every hand I will have the following columns: Ahead and I won, Behind and I sucked out, Folded Before River. I will write the matchups and the amounts that went in on each street. IMHO it is not a suckout when you call 3xBB and flop a monster if you have a stack or if a guy gives you odds by his bets to call. I think what we will find is that I do indeed have the worse luck of anyone on the planet and that the Poker Gods are against me.
