Don't you hate it when this happens? I'm in a tournament and I'm doing good. Top 20 get paid. There's about 38 people left and by chip amount I'm ranked 17th. I got A, Q and was up against one other player. The board read:
K, 10, 9, 2, J.
"Great, I got my straight" I say to myself. I make a big bet and the othe rplayer called me. Then, I expect to collect the pot, the other player did with two pair! I got disconnected and therefore lost the pot even though it was mine. I would have almost doubled my chip amount. I ended up placing 24th. four away from the money. If I didn't disconnect, I could have easily placed in the top ten.
