Sucked out four times!

I played in four texas holdem no limit sit-n-go events yesterday... actually, two single table, one 3 table, and one small tournament.

I was sucked out on the river AGAIN, in three of those events, playing the best hand, and pushing the other guy into making silly calls, that the poker gods rewarded..... that gets frustrating, to say the least.

I did get caught one time with a guy slow playing aces. He played it perfectly by not betting big when an ace hit the board. I had AQs, and the board paired them both. I pushed, and his Set took me down. I played what I felt was the best hand from what the betting was, and got caught. I had to congradulate him on his play!

I think it's important to recognize, at least for me, that you are NOT going to win every time you enter an event! It just is NOT going to happen. I've heard from pros that if you do well in 20% of them, you are ahead of the game, and that is starting to sink in for me.

I'm looking forward to playing in a live event tonight... I think the odds are in my favor! ;-)
