Mary asks…

Does online poker make u feel like a losing poker player because of all the suck outs?

because of the lucky draws they get constantly,i dont get to the final table much,there for my poker player stats go down hill. when i feel i play better than the stats about you?

admin answers:

From reading this it’s probably the case that you’re overplaying your hands, and some of this might be improper strategy and some might be frustration. For example players to push too much and only have a minor edge against some „inferior“ hands will regularly be hitting the road because of „suckouts.“ For example if you go all in with a 60/40 edge twice you’re going to be going out 64% of the time and it doesn’t require anything other than normal probability on the part of your opponents to do it. In addition folks tend to feel entitled to win every hand when they have a „better“ starting hand and start playing badly when they don’t.

The bottom line is that the quality of your play and the luck part are two entirely different things and if you play your best you will do your best and over time your luck or the luck of your opponents has nothing to do with it. As for the suckouts the fact people win these hands is the ONLY reason you can make money at poker because if everyone played well everyone would lose other than the house with the rake.
