Hey all,

My least fav way to lose a hand is when the board 4 flushes. Just cannot account for that.

Next....

My worst ever feeling following a beat? Easy.

Holding KK, get it in good preflop and am up against A9.

Flop 292

I'm praying for a King and no 9s, no aces

Turn 2

I'm praying for a King and no 9s, no aces

River 2

Obviously I was praying for the wrong thing, or to the wrong poker god. Always hate losing a boarded 4 of a kind hand on the kicker.

Pocket pair losing to overcards because the board paired twice and puts your hand out of play and the overcards win despite failing to improve/connect.

Flopping trips (with pair on board) and shoving only to lose to someone who chases a flush draw (even though they could already be drawing dead) and then hits it.

And one example that happened to me in the Open League last month....I am down to about 2.75BB (blinds 150/300) and get AA on the button. It's folded round to a big stack (about 32k) who decides to raise from mid position with his 63 suited...to 6600 (22 x BB). I call allin (obviously) and am feeling very good as I have got the isolation bet that I wanted as well as the monster hand. Then the player in the SB has AKoff and shoves (for 11k total). The player with 63 is now priced in due to his ridiculous overraise. Flop 6 Turn 6. Player with AK busts. I also bust.

If the 63 suited player had done a "standard" raise to say 3xBB (or even as high as 5xBB)....then there was every chance the player with AK is coming over the top with a shove and the player with 63 has to fold because the call is too expensive. And I am left getting the isolation bet I really wanted (from the player with a hand that I have dominated). I may be wrong here....but I am pretty sure that 63 suited has a much better chance of beating AA than AKoff has of beating AA. Hands like that dogged me all of last month in Open League. Even when I got isolation bets to thin out the field and improve my chances of winning key pots...it still went tits up lol.

I must say for me by far the worst, and about the only thing that really tilts me (at the tables) is the old aces while disconnected fiasco or the already built a big pot with a monster, disconnected dibacle! You cant control the luck of the cards, so bad beats or bad cards are not tilt worthy, but server issues on stars end are well, sasa frassa freakin, mother effin, dad gummin, pull your hair outin', kick the dog, yell at the universe, just a tad bit, wee bit, little bit, ever so slightly well, ummmmm, : AAARRRRRRGGGGGHHHHH!!!!!! Oh my!! Was that out loud? LOL my worst one was (of my money) just shy of 100$... can you imagine being a pro and having that happen with thousands in a pot??? OUCHY MOMMA!!! (insert throat cutting emoticon here)

I once flopped a boat
Shoves and gets called by a big stack looking for a gut shot straight draw
Turn gave them a flush draw an a straight flush draw
Yip , You guessed it
1 out to hit a gut shot straight flush draw
Surprise surprise out of 27 cards left it made an appearance

Having a decent hand on the bubble like KK or AA, and getting crushed by someone who shoves pre-flop with 92o.

That really puts me off my food. :c

I really don't like it when I make extremely strong bets and people call with completely terrible and illogical hands.... only to suckout on me and take all my money! Like When I 4-bet to 40 big blinds in a cash game with KK and some sucker calls all-in with A6o and spikes the A!

I've had something very similar to that spike.I got JJ and flopped Js full of 4s (two diamonds on the flop). Two players allin before me before I could put so much as a milking bet in and I thought it was Christmas. I assumed one of them had a 4 (and was right - 47off). The other player had nothing but a flush draw (8d5d). And I thought....case 4 probably hits on the river here, because this is just too good to be true. Nope. The flush hit on the turn (7d) AND gave the trip 4s a full house. River 6d. Straight flush and my jaw hit the floor. And the guy who hit the straight flush...was a Russian. Obviously.

Definitely anytime I decide to 'play' a big pair instead of just shoving it pre-flop and lose to some ridiculous idiot who calls all the way - or worse shoves sometime!

AS an example, premier league last month, wake up to KK and decide I wont just donkey shove it pre. Make a big raise, 1 caller. Low innocuous flop so I pot bet, he calls. Innocuous turn I pot bet again foout 70% of remaining stacks, he shoves and I think bingo and call. He turns over A3o which hasnt connected at all, river A. In the PREMIER SKILL league? Yeah right. I just dunno what he was even thinking. Bluff? when I have already bet 85% of my stack I am calling with air.....

The absolute worst thing is when you are all in and way ahead of the villain who called with crap, and then the nuts end up on the board, causing a split pot. The donk gets saved by the board. Happens a lot.
