Its seems that I've never played before. Horrible, horrible finishes.  So much so that I checked my horoscope. No help there!  Then it didn't help that I've been so busy that I couldn't play as often.  So today, rather tonight was the night.  I first played in the warm up. ugh. Lets not talk about it!  So I thought, I've got the time now, I'll play a league game. I promised myself I'd play tight and for the most part i think i did. Finally, looks like I'm gonna be in the money (pennies) again! then I get A5s, I call the big blind. they check. the flop is 2 of my suited cards and another A. I'm thinking this is my game! so all in.  The only other in the hand calls and quickly. Cards are shown now, He has nothing paired or suited on the board and only one a 3 card flush draw. I think surely - PLEASE! No the flop goes his way. He gets the flush. Several of the folks at the table are angry because he basically called with nothing. Well that is poker. You try to keep your loses small, but there is always the wild cannon that can get lucky and blow your brains out.  So the hog won - this time.
