      Its a little harder to read players since its online but maybe I should fold everytime I have a pocket pair. Everytime I had pocket aces, pocket kings, or pocket queens I lost and it was usually because someone decided to call $15 with one card left on a draw and they usually got it. Either these people that are at the table have a ton of money and dont care if they lose $15 or they are incredibly lucky. I can see the guy raising when I had an ace high flush and he had a full house but all the other calls were with nothing. The guy that beat me with a full boat had 4 other full houses in the next 2 hours of playing. He even said that I was the second person he beat in 30 minutes that had an ace high flush. Maybe I will just stick to playing in person and not online.

          Dude, you're running bad and playing bad. Take the weekend off and just relax. Don't think about poker. When you get back to it, play slower. Not necessarily your style, just how you think. Pocket 5's is a good hand, but going all in? Come on! Probably best case, you're in a coin flip for all of your money. Worst case, you're a 4:1 dog. You're getting unlucky and also playing too aggressively and not thinking enough about the holdings of other people. You have to slow down in terms of your thinking/aggressiveness and think things out better.

              Nice another "well known" pro won.

              Hellmuth is at another final table.

              Thus is probably his best WSOP Has he cashed more before?

                I know, I tried doing that and playing a lot slower but I couldnt buy a hand. I was gradually losing my money from all the blinds and everytime I tried to bluff and steal the blinds someone would raise me and force me to fold. I started with $100 and when I got pocket 5's and went all in I only had $5 left. I dont know if this is deja vu but I noticed that every time I was big blind and had a crappy hand someone would raise before the flop. All I want to do is see the flop with my crappy hand but no one would let me. They would rarely raise before the flop too but when they did I was usually small or big blind.
                The thing that is keeping me happy is that I wasnt one of the thousands of people that lost $10,000 by entering the WSOP. At least I only lost $200. I guess thinking of other people's misfortune is making me happy. lol

                • I'm hating poker right now.

                  I play on pokerstars.net (fake money) because i'm only 20. and i've lost over 400k in 3 days. I mean I raise 5k and 6 people call. I have 2-2 and make a set on the river only to get beaten by a flush. The guy had Q-6, WTF?

                  Just a bunch of bad beats but I never put my money in with the worst hand that's whats pissing me off.

                              Do you play on tables or in the sit-n-goes?

                                Why would you go all-in preflop with 55?
