sick sick sick bad beat or what?
I have had a bad night and it is getting late here so I started playing heads up on a $1-50c Limit Holdem table, I have had a couple of beers but I am not drunk or on tilt, just a bit fed up with my play.
Started off with buy in of $100 and built it up to $140 cos the guy I was playing was an aggressive idiot raising every hand.
I started reraising back and anyhow in this hand I flopped top full house, checked, he raised I reraised he called, the turn came and I raised, he reraised etc and we ended all in for a pot of $280. Happy days, he had trips and 2 outs, but you guessed it, he hit quads.
In many years playing poker that is one of the worse beats I have had, it is very very rare I buy in with $100, my BR on the site was only $220 so that was foolish I know but it just goes to show that you may be a 98% favourite but until that river is turned over you aint won.
I was shell shocked at the time but now, 10 mins later I just say hey thats poker for you, i love it and I hate it, at this moment hate wins, until tomorrow
