most of the time you're crushed by two pair, a set, another higher overpair, and behind two suited...

Re: My poker (loser) experience

I'd recommend setting personal limits on poker play, ie. never play when tired, upset, etc.

Re: KQ UTG in Party Million

Given that your opponent called a raise, I'd put his hand range on:

a set: TT
4.6% chance of winning

small flush: 9d 8d
2.3% chance of winning

big diamond: Ad Ks
44% chance of winning
