Maybe I lose more than necessary when I'm running bad because when I can't make the correct folds with certain hands when I would if I were playing my A-game.
Anyone else have the same kind of issue?
An example of two hands I incorrectly stacked off in that I could have gotten away from in a card dead session at a super juicy loose passive 2/5 table that played like the skill of 1/2
Hand 1 ~$500 effective:
Villain is a younger guy but an obvious recreational player and not aggro
Hero raises to 20 UTG with AA
3 callers including villain OTB
Kc Ts 7h flop
Hero bets $55
Hero bets $150
Villain ships all-in
Against this guy who isn't too aggressive and would just call down with a K, AA is a fold here, but when I sit for hours at a good game and never play a hand and finally pick up AA, I don't want to fold when I already put half my stack in. He had K6s
So yes, I ran bad because he hit his 6, but that doesn't mean I should have called the turn shove.
Hand 2 ~$450 effective:
5 limpers, hero limps SB with Tc8c
Villain is in BB, another recreational player who isn't particularly creative but good enough not to overplay silly hands
8d 8h 2d flop
Hero bets $25
Everybody else folds
Hero bets $65
Villain snap raises to $165
River blanks off
Villain ships, and I call out of frustration and lose to his 83o.
So did I run bad in the sense that he hit his 3? Yes. But when I'm having a good session, I might even get away from my hand on the turn. That or call turn and fold river.
If I were having a non-card dead session in such a beautiful loose passive game and actually able to get value sometimes, I think I would have found a fold in both of these hands.
