    Its not as bad, but frustrating all the same. For me it’s pocket Queens. Can’t remember the last hand i’ve won/played to river with these hole cards. <br>Losing 5 times straight with P-Kings is wretched luck Daylight.

    QQ I have won with everytime lately but was also on a bad losing streak with them previously.  Worse part about it was the 4th pocket kings in a $100,000 MTT I quaified for was sitting 350th of 1,831 and got dealt them, I got someone to bite and was all-in as my stack was getting smaller and needed a double-up. He had 5-6 on suit, nailed on I thought! Finished 384th as he got a 5 & a 6 on the flop and river, bloody game!!

    The last three times I have had KK, I have run into AA.  All on six handed $1/$2 cash tables.  Very expensive!

    Just as a matter of interest KK v 56 suited is around 75% favourite.  So expect to lose one in every four times.  And if your KK is up against two players with suited connectors (eg 56 & J10) you are only just over 50% to win!

    The lady has took pity on me tonight as I’ve had a few tourneys and won 3/3 with KK, 2/3 AA & beat someones AA with my 66 pre-flop.  Swings in roundabouts I suppose.

    Correct flagship,

    Only one way, IMVHO, to play KK but you’ve got to be prepared to let ’em go if the board shows signs of danger – and not just a bullet.

    Not quite the same I know but did anybody see Helmuth’s laydown in the main event at this year’s WPT.

    Holding AK, with a flop of AA4, and he folds to an all-in re-raise.

    Opponent had A4.

    I know he prides himself on reading other players and is in a no lose situation with regards to his reputation but still I dont think I could have done that even with my tournament life on the line.<br>Although given hindsight what else could he really have put him on other than pocket 4’s, in which case he’s still behind.

    Incidentally, first time I ever played a live casino MTT I was dealt AA on the button and thought it was christmas.<br>Small but pot size bet with plenty of callers.<br>Flop showed Kxx.<br>Checked round to me so typical continuity bet, only to be put all in.<br>Guessed I was behind to two pair but rebuy period so wtf ?.<br>Guy was holding KK :o

    Nearly put me off for life :biggrin:

    Played in the William Hill Half Million tonight (a mere $48,000 to the winner). Opponent went all in, I had AA so obviously had to call, he showed AQ and proceeded to flop 10 J K :banghead:

    Playing in our first TRF tourney I was all-in with 2 others holding KK, other 2 had 99 + QA.

    Flop: 10 K J, 8, 7

    This was THE defining hand of the tourney for me I thought as all 3 of us had 13,000 chips in the pot of the 6 left from 20, whoever won this hand was massively odds-on favorite to win!!

    Only because Fair Poker have added $25 as an opening night bonus.
