Bad Beats

By: Ov3rsight @ 10:50 (EST) / 369 / Comment ( 0 )

What is it with bad beats? Everyone wants to tell them, everyone wants to have others feel for their misfortune. And mostly - people don't really want to hear too much about them.

So let me tell you one - early in a 27 man Sit-n-Go, I have pocket sixes, and a nice flop. It has a six. On the flop, I check, the preflop raiser bets, I re-raise, he 3-bets, I shove, he calls. He shows pocket aces. Yeehaw. I'll give you one guess what the river card was. Don't know? Here's a hint: Barry Greenstein.

So, what do you do? Basically, you say "Well, I played it right, nothing I could do." Then you close the window, and sign up for another SnG and hope you do better. Such is life, such is poker....
