lololol.. got busted in a tourney minutes ago were it was possible to pass the money line.
as that has happened to me too often i have a question about top pocket pairs competing lower pairs preflop. what are the odds being outdrawn havin top pairs in the dark competing lower pairs in the dark both allinin preflop. as my little mathematical knowledge tells me the probability must be at 2/50.. preflop....2/47 after flop 2/46 after turn.. that makes about 10 percent of the time being outdrawn with a set of medium pairs in the dark.. str8 and flush draw ( e.g.6,7,8,10 ) not included. but if KK is nearly a 90:10 favorite..why do i have the feeling it happens every 5th time in online poker.. without tracking it of course
