F***ed by the Whale yet again.....

I seem to get 1 or 2 of these everyday now for the last month or so. My bottom line would be so much better if I could just hold up 1 of these beats a day. The poker gods are mad at me for some reason

Poker Stars $100.00 No Limit Hold'em - 9 players

SB: $106.35
BB: $38.50
Hero (UTG): $100.00
UTG+1: $111.00
UTG+2: $100.00
MP1: $109.65
MP2: $40.00
CO: $76.05
BTN: $102.80

Pre Flop: ($1.50) Hero is UTG with 7 of spades 7 of hearts
Hero raises to $3, 4 folds, CO calls $3, 3 folds

Flop: ($7.50) J of hearts T of hearts 7 of clubs (2 players)
Hero bets $6.00, CO raises to $12, Hero raises to $97, CO calls $61.05 all in

I am a 90% favourite at this stage to win this hand

Turn: ($153.60) A of diamonds (2 players - 1 is all in)

River: ($153.60) K of clubs (2 players - 1 is all in)

Final Pot: $153.60

Hero shows 7 of spades 7 of hearts
CO shows J of spades Q of hearts

CO wins $150.60

Should I play this any different? Raise less OTF? etc....


  1. If he's a Whale he could have easily had 8/9 off . But you could have hit a full house on Trn or river also eek.. The whale made a horrible call and just got lucky on river..

  2. There are so many jacks or even Ts in his range as well as lots of AK/AQ + other draws.

    He had just the hand I suspected, in fact I thought he would turn over AJ.

    There are 3 hands that beat me but against this type of player I think I hav to shove here.
