What?s really Happening when you?re confronted With A Bad Beat

You can be playing the most ideal poker of your career, yet still be hurt or annoyed about losing a big pot to a bad beat. The combative sporting nature of any game is commonly founded on the assumption that if you are the quality player, and if you play an excellent match you are warranted a win. A lot of us think about ourselves as the best player at the table, and we surely feel superior to the sucker that called your all-in bet with one card to go and hit his four outer, but all of that’s actually based mostly on a fake premise.

Poker is not a competition in the conforming way and you are not always repaid for good strategy. Actually you may have a streak of competition or money game sessions where you would be challenged to find a single fault on your side, and still be at a complete loss.

True, bad beats are a part of the game and we typically know this, but the trick with this, is to turn a bad beat experience around and make it economic for you long term.

In reality, most players take a considerable time to truly understand bad beats. Naturally bad beats hurt everyone, even informed players, but if you look at bad beats from a mathematical view, you also must admit them as uninterested in your rewarding technique.

What this means is that good players, will literally giggle off a bad beat because they know they were regarded as making a profit generating play regardless, and the winner of the pot committed a negative EV play. They also figure that if opponents did not make negative EV plays, then this worthwhile game of poker wouldn’t survive. They realize that they need players at the table who mess up and suck out to win a pot.

often, I’m in poker tourneys and have a look at weak players who just earned a big pot and think to myself, “well I’m glad that guy has a stack”. You too should need puny players to have money or stacks at the table.

Good players that really understand the bad beat dilemma have an inherent insensibility towards the last result of a hand, and are way more engaged in how their opponents really played the hand, and what was the thinking behind their strategy – if they’d one. Worthwhile players thoroughly observe events of the situation, and their opponents, and only wait for a chance to win their money back and more.

There are several good sites for winning online poker. Pokerworks.co.uk is one of them!

Sparks – Beat the Clock

I think that Russell is the only person on earth who can wear that and still look good. On rewatch, he looks like an anime character, what with that pointy chin and those eyes. Ron looks quite delicious *and* heavily medicated. Just how I like ‘em. Last note: “Skip the foreplay, let ‘er rip?” You’re going to be beating more than the clock with that attitude, mister. This too, is safe in all it’s compression artifacted and out-of-synch glory.
