    OH MY!!!

    Game 30/60 Limit Holdem
    Date: 3/16/2020

    3-handed game

    Pre:
    BTN opens to $60
    SB (Hero) has KdKh, makes it $90
    BB calls, BTN calls

    Pot = $270

    Flop Ts2d9d

    Hero bets $30
    BB raises to $60
    BTN raises to $90
    Hero caps it to $120
    BB, BTN call

    Pot = $630

    Turn Ks

    Hero bets $60
    BB raises to $120
    BTN calls $120
    Hero calls and prays for board to pair

    Pot - $990

    River Tc



    Hero bets $60
    BB raises to $120
    BTN raises to $180
    Hero caps to $240
    BB, BTN both call

    Final pot = $1710

    Hero shows KK (full house)
    BB shows KT (full house)
    BTN shows T9 (full house)

    Sick turn and river, huh?

    Pocket 4s an overpair on the turn. First time I've seen this in my life.

    Did they hold? How did the rest of the hand play out

    They all folded turn.

    That's the good news.

    The bad news is that I went on a brutal downswing after that.

    Current run of consecutive hands on Bovada:

    68o
    27o
    34o
    52o
    43o
    26o
    52o
    37s
    34o
    36o
    34o
    92o

    That's 12 ultra-trash hands in a row.

    Finally ended this with K9o in the cutoff (which won despite a crappy board by the end).

    This was after losing a bunch of decent/good starting hands in a row.

    Next hands after the K9o broke the trash streak?

    74o
    76o
    74s
    T2o
    74o
    J6o

    Back when I first started playing online poker in 2003 on PokerPages(a site I was made aware of by Phil Hellmuth pimping it in his book "Play Poker Like the Pros"), I used to list every staring hand I was dealt & put an x besides all the hands I won & a double check beside hands I either flopped huge or would have if I had stayed in the hand. I actually thought I could analyze it to help figure out a winning strategy before I had even heard of poker tracking software. We all know this didn't help for that purpose but it did make me pay attention to what was happening at the table in hands that I had folded so, in that way, it was a good exercise for me.

    Anyway, I'll never forget 1 tournament I played, I wasn't dealt a face card or a pocket pair for 44 straight hands. As it was happening I was like WTF, & just getting madder & madder. This was a great lesson for me because I rode out that run of bad starting hands & was just about to go on tilt before going on a heater & I actually won that tournament. It was only for these point thingys but you could take them & play cash/point tables & run them up then convert them to cash & play for real money which is what I eventually did & did very well at.

    I had an even worse run of trash hands like this at the WSOP Main this year. Fortunately it wasn't on Day 4 or 5, and fortunately at was at the WSOP Main where the blinds move so slowly, and levels are 2 hours long.

    This is why I hate turbos. If something like this happens at one of those, you're fucked.

    Here is some food for thought. EA Sports has been caught with a patent called "Dynamic Difficulty Adjustment" (DDA). The premise of the patent is that when 2 players connect to their server to play against each other, the server gathers data from both players and rates their skill level. Once the server has determined each players skill level, it will "level the playing field" so that the worse player doesn't get frustrated and quit. They need players to not quit because they want them to purchase their player packs for their "Ultimate Team" modes where you purchase packs of virtual cards in hopes of getting virtual superstars to put onto your team (For example, you buy more packs hoping to "pull" a Ronaldo in FIFA so he can be on your team). EA Sports makes millions of dollars off of people buying these virtual cards. So they have gone to great lengths to artificially level the playing field between the highly skilled players and the casual players to increase their profit margins. This patent is extremely detailed and can be found online.

    Here is an excerpt from the EA Sports DDA Patent:

    "Another solution that may be used in some types of competitive video games , such as racing games , is to vary the ability of the user or the user ' s competitor based on the relationship between the user and the user ' s competitor . For example , supposing that the video game is a racing game , the user ' s car may be made faster when the user is doing poorly and may be made slower when the user is doing well . This solution may result in what is sometimes referred to as a “ rubber band effect . ”

    So here is some food for thought; If video game companies are already using technology like this to artificially level the playing field between skilled and non-skilled players, Wouldn't it be likely that online poker sites, which are making an exponentially more amount of money, be doing something at least as advanced as this?
