Default My Girlfriend...is beating the hell out of me...AND I RAN HOME

Okay fellas....I'm not proud of myself...but my girlfriend beat me again 3 out of 4 HEADS UP No limit Holdem games...so last night after my last loss I packed my chips and left...going ALL-IN with nothing just to end the game...we keep a running total and she's won 52 to my 47...but her confidence is HUGE...and she's trash talking me...and I'm getting pissed! She's been playing like I told her too...raise and play aggressively. She's catching cards, and playing well. I feel like she's outplaying me...and she's been only playing a couple of months...and I started a year and half ago...she doesn't try to learn...and I own a dozen Holdem books. She thinks the game is lame...and not real poker like Draw or Stud. Did I mention she has an IQ of 140+...considerably higher than my own. And now I'm getting the distinct feeling she's going start soft playing me...what an insult. We show our hands everytime (this was for teaching purposes)...so she can't be obviously trying to let me win...but I noticed at the end of the night that she started checking after the flop...instead of betting like had been doing VERY SUCCESSFULLY.

What the hell is it with people and iq's. Some of the smartest people I know are fricken rocks when it comes to common sense stuff. You g/f is better than you.

I'm that girlfriend. My boyfriend doesn't like it, and still won't talk to me 30 minutes after I move all in on top pair and he can't call with a draw. We really only play home games together (with friends) and although he is a great tournament player, his cash game needs some work. I am a great cash game player, and hold my own in a tourny but never make it past 4th place. Everyone's got their strong points.

Guys still cannot accept that women can be equal to them in a game, and god forbid it be poker. Be proud of her. Take her to a game with some friends and your viewpoint will change. She will walk away a winner and you can say you've got a badass poker girl.

I think I understand from your post, however, that shes (wrongfully) full of herself and confident in her game. One, this will not last forever. Her luck cannot last forever, and you will outplay her. Secondly, you sound much more skilled than her and shouldn't let her small winning streak threaten your play.

Be gracious, act like a man. Tell her you're proud of her progress, and that she should take that skirt off so you can get freaky.
