Wow, talk about lousy results last night. I was the king of second best hands. I was so disgusted that when I had $1200 left and knew I was beat, I pushed anyway on a distictively "hope-a-tron" move. The results were as expected.
Whenever I lose to the imaginary post-n-fold player, I know I must be either playing too many hands or had a bad beat. It was not a bad beat.
I was getting run over, but it wasnt because of poor play so much as I was beat each and everytime and I just could not take it anymore. I try to play the early levels by grinding up small pots. Well, the pots became large and my holdings shrunk each time.
Sometimes there is a need to play short stack earlier than you would like. When that happens, you cant ever just give up in disgust. And that is what I did. Shame on me. Ugh.
