I know everyone has a donkey story about a guy calling with 106 or 45 what not and suck out but just unbelievable.  

My bankroll took a big hit, i think i lost about 1/4 today a lot of bad luck/ bad bluffs at sit and go's.  i cashed in 1 tourney the rags 2 riches round 2.  one bad hand after i made the money and i was out in 15th.  i have AJ in the small blind, middle position with big stack raised i call.  flop my jack, i check he bets i raise he reraise/puts me all in.  i think about it consider he might have an over pair but i figured i was good.  he turned over jack 10 and and hit 2 pair on the flop.  such a bad way to lose, i had plenty of chips

but this hand pissed me off the most.

heres  quick summary of how the hand played out:
Pocket kings fairly early, UTG+ something.  2/5 cent blinds.  I raise to 15 cents, 1 caller middle position.  someone reraises (dealer/sb/bb??).  I 5 bet most of my chips and BOTH players call.  Flop is 10 high, I bet 80% of my chips, 2nd to act shoves and other position calls and i put the rest of my chips in.

middle position turns over Q10 for top pair (he called my raise and reraise preflop with a queen 10!!),  Late position had AK.  My kings look great.  turn puts 3 clubs on the table, i dont have a club.

and the river.  a freaking queen.  so the donk with queen 10 who calls a 5 bet with q10 off gets lucky and wins a huge pot.  such bull crap

so unbelievable my sister walked in and i was like "watch me win a huge pot" and then the chips didnt go my way and i realized the queen 10 had won.  i wanted to kill someone.
