I was playing in 2 forum games at the same time, and lost both within a few hands on the same type of beat. I was up in chips...but both hands was all-in against someone with as much or more chips. The first beat/loss was in a game where you have to go ALL-IN every hand or FOLD. I had won 1 hand, so I doubled my money and folded the next 10. I was dealt KJ suited so I called all in. One other person called me...he had KJ offsuit. He caught a four-card flush on the river. That was the ONLY possible way to beat me...and *I* was holding the suited cards, just not the right one I guess. :shock:
Just a couple hands after losing that one, I was all-in with AK suited. He raised 2 blinds preflop and I called. An ace came on the flop and he went all in. I called. He ended up catching a four-card flush on the river to beat me.
I understand people say when there are nine people at a table, you're going to see more bad beats, but it seems like I see more four-card flushes in one tournament at AP than I think I've seen in all my years of poker pre-online.
