Everytime I've played here 75% of the hands were won with the low hand. So if you have low hand before flop stay and win.

Feel the same way. Can't believe the sh*t that keeps calling from way behind to consistently hit the miracle draws, but when the shoe is on the other foot i.e. when I have the drawing hand does it ever hit, nope , not once. Now I know that I haven't seen the 'long run' with any of these hands or even in terms of how long I've played, but if you were to look at the ratio between the situations, there is no balance.

Yes Samoh 1 it can be, but the idea is to be on the winning side where it is expensive for them and profitable for you.

when the shoe is on the other foot i.e. when I have the drawing hand does it ever hit, nope , not once. I find this statement quite hard to believe. I am all too familiar with players sucking out on me with draws when I have them up against the wall, in fact I have a post in this section on just that topic. However, it would be a blatant lie if I said that I had never pushed all in on a semi bluff, or called when I probably shouldn't have simply because I felt I had enough outs to warrant such a call. Sometimes I was dead wrong and didn't have enough outs, either way, I have had the benefit of the occasional suckout, although I prefer not to put myself in a situation where I need to catch to win. The thing about poker is that we often have no difficulty remembering the horrendous beats we take, but find it quite the opposite in remembering the big wins when we caught to win. I believe Matt Damon in Rounders says something just to that effect, and I completely agree. I recall many a suckout, but not many when I sucked out to win. Keep playing properly and the long run does eventually put things in your favour, the problem is determing exactly how "long" the long run is.
It's easier to fish if you're the one casting the reel.

Okay, so maybe it was a little fib, but I constantly find people calling and calling, without "proper" odds to hit 3, 2, and even the odd 1 outer. Whereas, when I have 15 outs, the other player wins with an under pair.

It is always easier to remember the great bad beats you have taken then the many winning hands you have had. That is poker in a nutshell. When you are running good you hit your draws and your strong hands hold up but when you are running bad you just never seem to get there. Keep playing your best poker and it will turn around for you.
