Almost forgot why Stars sux!
 
After losing a 3:1 chip lead heads-up with an unprecedented 3 straight hands of Td 4c, and to a villian playing ATC, I took my shot to double up with this hand. Like Fillmaf says, Lee Jones is a scumbag. :P

Sorry about the whining bad beat post. I would have posted the 3 previous hands but it would have been too long and you guys would have picked my play apart...lol. More than a few players left this tourney to runner/runner but I was just blown away by the repeat hands and then the beat.

MODERATOR: Please delete this post after the fifth "STFU" comment. Thanx.

Fair play. I really hope the guy I busted with A8 v his AA earlier on in a SNG had a forum to post on but I suspect major computer damage happened. 'Stars made sure I got some instant Karma however as I lost the next 10 AIs in my favour. Can't even blame Lee Jones anymore. I demand to know who we blame now! Surely TWLLM knows:wink:.

No idea I'm afraid. I would still blame Lee - he's still there, he's just being less public. :biggrin:
