My toughest beat was not only because of how dominated he was, but because of the tournament and place in the tourney that I was in. This was also the only time that I came THIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIS close to chucking my mouse across the room in disgust....I still have a strong dislike for Lee Jones over at PokerStars
because of this one.
Playing in the PS $11 WSOP Quadruple Shootout last year, and I managed to make it to HU at my 3rd table (winner goes to final table). Chip totals were villian at about 4600, hero (me, that is) at about 4400. Caught A-5 in BB - SB called, I raised to 4x BB (standard raise); a call.
Flop comes A-9-5 rainbow - beautiful. I come out firing a pot size bet, opponent comes over the top immediately for all his chips. I knew he didn't make trips - any decent hand he would have raised (notes indicated this); and I just knew
that this was one of those "Please fold to my big bet even though I have nothing" bets. I called - he flips A-3 unsuited!
I rarely get excited or pissed off playing poker on the computer, but I was getting stoked about making it to a final table for a chance at the WSOP (8800 to 200, c'mon, who loses this lead!) - but I forgot that I could actually lose this hand.....until I saw a 2, then a 4 come out to give the villian his straight and knock me out.
