Good Cards Spell Doom

Don't you hate when your overpair hits a set on the river only to make your fish opponent's gusthot straight that he was inexplicably calling pot sized bets with and you go broke after playing perfect poker for over four fucking hours in a Stars Deep Stack Tournament, the agonizing structure of which is supposed to you know, alleviate some of that luck factor and then you find yourself yelling WHEN THE FUCK IS A GOOD CARD NOT GOING TO SPELL MY FUCKING DOOM! while your landlord chooses that moment in time to walk around the back of the building right next to your bedroom window to see if you're home so he can snake the clogged sink that he's been promising to fix for over a week now?

I wouldn't know anything about it.

I feel bad about my last comment now.
Sorry to hear about the beat. That hurts.

Nothing like your perfect read on a player turning into the perfect suckout when your deuces full of jacks gets nuked from orbit by his trip jacks/ace kicker turning into quads on the river.

And it's not like you didn't put him all-in on the river, just to give it that "I doubled the donkey" piquant flavor.

Um.......yes. Yes I hate that.

I hate the feeling, not the scenario.

Cause I've never experienced that before.

The landlord thing that is. I've experienced far too many suckouts.

It's even worse when they go broke a hand or two later, as you watch them give your chips away. I can't even stand to play right now; people keep lucking into straights on the river (when they only have one hold card that plays), and it's killing me.

Keep your chin up!
