"Joker/River"Stars and "Gargoyle's"Room!
i have 3 stories the first one not as good, the second one was pretty brutal, hehe, the 3rd one was a typical PokerStars
1.Alright!...the situation i am going to talk about is not a bad beat but "an ugly way to lose". ... i am playing a 27 ppl tournament on PokerStars. 2 hands earlier i took a huge hit and i was down to about 900 chips. i decided to play real tight and was folding until i got dealt 10 10 with blinds 25/50. i was on the button and raised to 200...the guy in the BB raised me another 150 and i called with the intention to go all in if i get a favorable flop. everyone else folded. the flop came 8 10 J rainbow <<<<I MOVED MY CHIPS IN. he called me immediately with KK. i was happy i got lucky but i knew it wasnt over yet. when the turn came i sensed i would lose that hand as i have seen ppl losing while being HUGE favorites. The TURN was a J. u can guess what the river was i suppose ANOTHER J. it didnt make me mad because the best starting hand won but i wasnt happy either cuz he was about 10 to 1 underdog after the flop and before the river, plus he could have played his KK a lil better.
2. This actually happened to one of my best friends. He plays on Doyle's Room usually a $1/$2 blinds ring game. He gets dealt 88 and he is in middle position, everyone folds as it gets to him and he puts in a raise of $4 ($6 total),then it is fold fold to the SB as he/she calls. BB calls as well. FLOP comes out 8 8 10 <<<he flops quads. The SB bets $7.5 BB folds and my friends takin his time calls the bet. next card is x(i think it was a 3...and its 8 8 10 x rainbow)...the SB probably put my friend on a big hand because his next bet was $20...my friend took his time and moved all his chips in i think he had about 160 left, so he raised 140. The SB called immideately with 10 10. The Pot was pretty huge it was close to $350 ( i mean huge for $1/$2 blinds). My friend didnt even think that there was a card in the deck that might take the pot away from him as he was jumping up and down, yelling and screaming. The river couldnt have been any worse....the only 10 left in the deck and the only card that would beat his quad 8s. He didnt even see it cuz he was still running around his room, then he finally looked at the screen and just froze. You should have seen the look on his face! . he didnt know what to do. then he went to his bed, grabbed a pillow and began hitting the house floor with it. i have never seen him play online poker since that incident. and i dont think he will ever do it again
3.THE FLUKE....this one was classic ...haha...it was another sit&go on "Joker"Stars...i was dealt A A ,one of them was a club,and a guy in front of me raised big, so when my turn came i reraised him 3 times his raise and after the rest of the table folded he moved all in. he was holding 6 6, one of them a club. Flop comes out 7c 8c x then the turn 9c and the river 5c. pretty funny eh?...
