river beat are to take sometimes. But if the a flush or str draw Make them pay to chase. at low limit you see a show down every hand almost. You never want to have a showdown unless you got the nuts. Bet hard!, make them fold, be the aggressiver, Play good starting hands. But in the end river beats and bad beats will alway happen it part of the game, shake them off your not the only one it happens too. your not going to win everyday. Don't drain you bankroll there also tomorrow if you having a bad day.

lol that first part don't make sense sometimes riverbeats are going to happen, but you can cut them down by being more aggressive. If you think you have the best hand but it can be beat make them pay to beat you protect you hand with big bets. but that would be hard to do if you are playing limit and not nolimit.

I have counted and have gotten river rated 7 times in the last two days by people who shouldnt even be in the hand I hate to sound like I'm picking on people, but this is your own fault. If you have people who shouldn't be in the hand, and they beat you on the river with a lucky catch then you should have bet them out of the pot. When you make the pot odds favorable for a call with any two cards guess what people are going to call with??? That's right. Any two cards. It took me a while to learn this in full. Don't be afraid to bet your hand aggressively, and learn how to manipulate pot odds.
Gimme your chips or I'll beat you with a dead cat... No really, gimme your chips!

How about the idiot all ins like A2 who beat my AK on KTT flop, all in on flop, or the AJ who calls all in over KK and flops the ace. I give them the worst odds and they hit and hit and hit. I know I'm playing well and when I am not and to lose to 1 - 3 outers 2 or 3 hands in a row in a mtt just kills my spirit to play. Even though end up ahead every week I really don't enjoy playing poker when against idiots.
Just because I'm moody, doesn't mean you're not irritating.

Well if by break you you mean lose your roll, then no they can't break me. If you mean end your tournament life day after day hitting 1 or 2 outers then they sure as hell can. I know they are a fish I put them all in when know I'm ahead, you just can't get them out, and in MTT you have to face a lot of them on the win to a win and it just gets tiring and becomes more like lotto and less like poker. Like I said I end up ahead each week and pull out mad money from this site, but when the days start stringing together beat after beat after beat while ahead and with horrible calls, well... it can get to me.

you can bet the pot all the way to the river and they still suck out a straight or flush on you! grrrrrrrrr
It's only a gambling problem if you're losing ;)
