A Two Outer Presto-ization

To say I have been running bad is putting it mildly. As such, I haven't played 1000 hands in the last three weeks. These hands demonstrates why:

$5/10NL, 9-handed

*** HOLE CARDS ***
Fuel55 raises $20 to $30 from EP with [7s 7h]
IDIOT IN THE BB calls $20

*** FLOP *** [3s 9d 2h]
IDIOT IN THE BB checks
Fuel55 bets $55
IDIOT IN THE BB calls $55

*** TURN *** [3s 9d 2h] [6c]
IDIOT IN THE BB checks
Fuel55 bets $95
IDIOT IN THE BB raises $47 to $142 and is all-in (like a check-raise here for $47 makes any sense whatsoever ...)
Fuel55 calls $47 (I put him on A6 at best)

*** RIVER *** [3s 9d 2h 6c] [5d]

*** SHOW DOWN ***
IDIOT IN THE BB shows [5c 5s] (three of a kind, Fives) (of course you hit your two outer moron)
Fuel55 mucks hand
IDIOT IN THE BB collected $456 from pot


Thankfully he was a short stack who dined and dashed a few hands later.

It doesn't seem to matter how good I play I just keep getting sucked out for modest-to-monster sized pots as an overwhelming favorite.

And if that wasn't bad enough, maybe you like this hand where I finally went broke in the same session:

*** HOLE CARDS ***
Fuel55 raises $20 to $30 from button with [3d 3s]
Reraising Lucksack raises $60 to $90 from BB (he is reraising from his BB about 50% of the time)
Fuel55 calls $60 (set mining 101)

*** FLOP *** [Ks Jc 9d]
Reraising Lucksack checks
Fuel55 checks

*** TURN *** [Ks Jc 9d] [3c]
Reraising Lucksack bets $180
Fuel55 raises $400 to $580
Reraising Lucksack reraises $450 to $1030 (for sure he put me on a steal which is logical since a 3 is "unlikely" to improve my hand 95% of the time)
Fuel55 rereraises $34 to $1064 and is all-in (if he has QT, KK, JJ or 99 – so be it)
Reraising Lucksack calls $34

*** RIVER *** [Ks Jc 9d 3c] [Qc]

*** SHOW DOWN ***
Reraising Lucksack shows [4c 5c] (a flush, Jack high)
Fuel55 mucks hand
Reraising Lucksack collected $2310 from pot

Maybe my mistakes were not 4-betting him preflop and not c-betting flop but really I think I played the hand pretty good.


Tough to win when you are consistently getting this unlucky.

gross. I see you are posting beats, which is refreshing. I thought you were made of Kryptonite for the longest time. You'll bounce back and have win your biggest pot ever soon enough. Keep grinding.
