As far as im concerned no one like to be kicked out of a tournament just because of the dumb playing of some players out there that pray to get the victory hand by the river(these players are called in the table dumbs or lucky ass)i will tell the truth i hate rivers because give to my fish a hope of beating me and to be sincerely honest it have happen some times to me.Like one time i was holding As ks and my pray was holding a pair of 3s i called him (these was in a real table in ultimatebet)so i see the flop it comes Ad 8h 8s he checks i raised big he called,the turn comes Qc i go all in and he called me and the river comes 3!!!!! and i losed my stack there, geez if u players dont call that a lucky ass then must be that the dealer was selled anyway i hope you players dont get rivered.If you got a story of how bad the river beat you tell it here by replying.
best not to dwell on it, add them to your buddy list then hunt them down and take your chips back
of course they would have probably lost them all already before you get the chance, though as they say, plenty more fish in the sea

F##king River too many times
I'm with Grumbledook. Add that bad boy to your Buddy list. Sure, he may run out before you get back to him today. But everyday is a good day for fishing.

This just happened to me in a freeroll last night(normally does) BB was 600 Had Pockets Aces I raised them to 1800. table chip leader reraised me I guess to see if I was bluffing. I called flop is out cant remember 1 of the cards on the flop but there was a Q K I bet he raises me I Reraise basically a Pi***** contest. I went all in he still wouldn't back down. He was holding a K Jos the Turn came was a 9 then the river ARGGGG a 10 comes. still reliving that one in my mind.
I feel your pain its happen on Cash tables for me also
