On taking (bad?) Beats....

I played texas holdem in a sit n go yesterday at Empire Poker... got down to the final two, and we went back and forth for a while before I finally pushed my stack with A5c.... he had AKo! The flop comes 55K!! I hit a set! Of course, he rivers a K to take me out....

So I decide to go to the club last night to play, and we have a small Texas Holdem satellite with about 20 players.... I was not seeing anything for hands! I played JJ, and TT and won modest pots with both, but went a long time between hands, and started looking like a muck machine! I got down to under 1K ( started with 2K ) and pushed with Pocket 8's, against a player I figured had a couple overs.. I was right, and my 8's held, pumping me back up to about 2700....

Several hands later, the Big Stack pushes all in under the gun.... I'm sitting on ATh.... this player is loose, and has played loose all night, getting lucky hits, so I figure he's putting a move on. After a few minutes of thought, I call. I was right! He had K2o!!

Of course, he rivers a K and knocks me out.....

ALL you can do in the wonderful game of Texas Holdem, is make the RIGHT read, and the RIGHT call. You get your chips in with the best hand, and then it's up to the poker gods!
