I once mistook the black suits, and the worst is that I was betting until the showdown believing in my Nutz and I lost everything because I had nothing The tournament was in an advanced stage I was very tired
I have a few times, but one i will mention, I flopped top 2 KQ, with 2 hearts, i raise, the get reraised, i call with a trap, the turn is a heart, i check and she raies and i call, just not sure, the river gave me my boat, i raise a handful of chips, and i didn't even hear her call, but she shows me the Ace high flush, and asks even, you got it, 1, i didn't even hear the call and the dealer just nailed someone for not being verbal, 2, for some damn reason, those to hearts in her hand spooked me, i was playing around 14 hours tht day, and i just freaking muck, and as soon as i did, i tried to get em back, i didn't know she called, so i thought i was good since she just dealer just chewed someone out for not calling verbally, but i should have just showed, i know that isn't mis reading the board or my hand, just misread the situation, lost about 150 on that hand.
Seems to happen to me quite often, most notably towards the middle to end stage of the tournament when I end up four bet shoving on the notion that the guy is trying to steal the blinds. Nine times out of ten my read is incorrect and they are holding AA or KK. But that 1/10 times I am right sure makes me feel smart.
I have done it a time or two as well, just totally off the wall blonde moment type stuff. Once i had believed i had a flush holding spades, when in fact it was a spade and club. Another time a straight. Both times it had been a long and tiring tourny and i should of been better rested. Still felt like a dumb arsh though lol
I'm sure most of us have encountered at least one misread. So many distractions around, when playing online, it does happen (kids, dogs, husband..I wonder why I like to play the silly game at times) Careful with the 'blonde' comment, Joe..lol..j/k..
I miss read a hand I had in a poker room at a casino. I thought I had a st8 but ended up losing my whole stack. I was one short of a st8. Total miss read. That happened a long time ago when I was first started playing poker. I always double check my cards before I commit all of my chips now. I felt like a fool showing my one card short of a st8 at show down.
Never chase a straight or flush with too much of ur stack i realised that i lost a lot of cash doing this as well if the bet is within ur limits u shud definitely do it otherwise its not worth the risk to lose so much cash on one hand when u not even sure if there is a possibility of it being a winning hand
Excellent question Randy. I misread my hand almost every time I decide to play one, or so it seems like lately anyway. LOL I am torn between trying not to concentrate too hard during a game, and getting too easily distracted. I'm still looking for that happy medium I guess. You, on the other hand, have come into your groove nicely. Keep up the great job.
Yes crazy if u would leave those suited cards alone u would be okay...u know 7 2 suited is not that good starting hand ............right?///// hahahah maybe u need to make another promise to urself....lol

ha ha ha meren. I'd like you, and everyone else to know, I fold 7 2 suited, almost every time. and as far as making another promise? Nahhhhhh, I'm doing just fine with the one I made already. Haven't gotten blinded out once since I made it. ~~~~

Same happened to me but online on Stars. I was playing tired a HU and thought i had a straight, but actually one card was missing.
There is absolutely no excuse for misreading a hand online, with tickers showing your hand strength and four color decks, it just shouldn't happen.
Live is a different story. When I first started playing poker (home games at this point), I vividly remember mistaking a "not so straight flush" once. Held and flopped . Obviously ended up only having a straight but the guy had and hit the on the river after chips were in...
This is why my favorite hand of all time is , simply because of that hand.
A couple of times was spose to be a flush its a real wakeup call was a site with smaller cards I blamed it on couldnt possibly be me and one time a straight but thankfully they didnt call me so just marked it up to be a bluff that worked. Sometimes these long tourneys and its late at night your eyes get crossed.
Sure everyone has. No such thing as a perfect poker player. Sorry you had a bad beat but we all learn from it and come back stronger the next time as you have done. Best of luck to you on and off the felts, Randy. *hugs*
