what is the worst thing you have done after suffering a costly brutal bad beat?

for me, i won a ticket into wingows $100K monthly tournament by winning a freeroll that awards top 3 entry to the main 100K event. anyways the top 80 payed, 80th place was $375 (or it might have been $350 dont remember exactly). out of 450 players i was in the top 5 for the first 3 hours, anyways we were done to 82 players and tables were going hand-for-hand, i was in fifth place in the tourny, i get pocket aces, i raise the pot after the bb and get reraised all in by someone who has 65% of my chips, i insta-call, he turns over A-K NOT SUITED, he hits running clubs on turn and river, i am furious and angry, very next hand I get pocket queens, after the small blind and AK person calls me (i am bb), i raise the pot and get reraised by the the AK person allin, sb folds, and i call with little hesitation, AK person shows JJ. Flop comes QK8 and i was feeling really good, friggin turn was 9 and river was 10 and i was eliminated in 81 place. I felt like shit and wanted to beat the crap out of the AK guy. I was outraged and somehow without thinking I threw my mouse at my computer screen, my screen was cracked immediately and i ended up dumping a $200 19 inch monitor, from that day i never touched wingows poker.

anyone else willing to share their horrible story, feel free :(

one time I recieved a bad beat along with a long session of bad play. I bubbled about 5 SNGs in a row, so I decided to chuck some chips at the wall and some went out the window. I was playing with the chips and they were there, in my hand, waiting to be thrown somewhere. I believe I banned myself from online poker for about a week after that.

I threw my baseball cap at the wall. The clasp at the back that held the adjustable strap flew off and I didn't find it for a couple of days. The next day my shoulder hurt from the strain of whipping my hat at the wall.

When I was 18 I took a horrible beat to some kid that was already well off and a total DB, and he just kept rubbing it in so I ended up choking him out. Turns out he was like 15, and his big bro who was a pretty bad character around his parts was pretty upset about it, and decided to try to jump me at a get together that consisted of mainly my friends. I got lucky that my friends were there and nothing happened, but over the next 2 weeks things escalated until a gun was pulled, and soon after I found the kid and squashed everything. But really it was not worth doing that to him, someone could have died over something that dumb.

I punched my laptop screen and the LCDs broke, had to hook it up to a monitor. Ended up eventually buying a new laptop. I've also punched many holes in my wall, but now I've learned to control anger while playing.

Somebody could've died because of a bad beat. Now that's intense.

One time, after my Aces got cracked, I walked up to an old lady that was wanting to cross the street and when she asked me to help her I pushed her in the ditch instead...

Not really, I just get frustrated and red in the face. Sometimes I yell. Never broke anything.

I beat the crap out of Lee Jone's Low limit hold em book. Almost a year ago when I was a begginer donk, I donated a grand of my college loan in one night on Ultimate Bet. , and grabbed the book and just slammed it on the ground a few times, at the wall once, then probably threw it in the trash, with some of the pages barely hanging on. I grabbed it out later on when I was no longer steaming. Then fast forward to a few months ago, I bubbled in an expensive PLO rebuy at the very last spot before the money due to shortstacks outdrawing me and outliving me. I had already suffered some bad beats that night, so I regrabbed the taped up Low limit book and slammed it on the ground until it wuz nothing but a bunch of pages. Now, it's in a landfill somewhere for good. But, I don't steam as much now anymore, after maturing as a serious player, I've come to accept the losses as a normal part of poker, plus I win more consistently :)
I'd never be so tilted as to ruin my computer, mouse, or 19" lcd, which cost me 300$ a few years back.

One time after I suffered a beat I typed in"You stink you poopybag dumbhead",then I proceded with"gosh darn you stupid dingleberry".

After that I calmed down and had a cherry lollipop to sooth my pain:D:D.

I killed a man in Modesto, California after he called my all in move with his A4 off suit against my pocket aces and a flop of A J 5 rainbow. Needless to say he turned and rivered a straight.

(kidding,btw) in case any of you feel like heroes.

I had this watch that had something wrong with the latch on the wrist. If I clapped my hands, or bumped my arm, the thing would unhinge. It got really annoying; then one time some 2-outer hit and I slapped my hands together and the thing opened up and slid up my arm. I had had enough, took it off and threw it to the ground and it ended up in many pieces.

Dealt queens, flop comes up A-rag-Q. villian goes all in, I call. He flips over aces. Turn is the last queen, river comes up case ace.

Threw my wireless mouse across the living room, cracked the picture window.

Built up a nice little BR from freerolls $46 and change ... had a very bad beat, and went into Poker Suicide Mode thinking that it would be best for my health and family if I had a zero BR and w/couldn't play poker online again.

Now I'm still playing... but with a drastically reduced BR, $46 to less than $1 in an hour or so of sheer madness on my part.
