I was in a fairly middleish stack, someone pushed in front of me - i had KK in my hand, so i fist pumped and called my all in

another person called as well , they had garbage hands - i had the champagne bottle ready and then this happened

Unfortuantely, that's one of the perils for taking KK (or any other monster hand) into a multi-way pot.

use this as an example. KK vs 1 random hand wins 82.4% of the time. If a second opp gets in, then my win % goes down to 68.9%..... and unfortunately it's only that extra 13.5% that lose, that happen to stick in our memories.

I feel for you - but mine was worser...

KK in a 3-way pot and I come third...by quite a margin

Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

well at least they both had legitimate hands here, but seeing them both survive with decent stacks while I am railing did hurt some
