When I read this message, I was in shock. I think I was the one you lost to. I remember playing that hand. I advise you to try to relax and forget about it. I've experienced numerous bad beats before, but I usually manage to recuperate. Try to think about any times you may have been lucky. People remember bad beats more than lucky experiences, so this will probably stick with you more than a fortunate time would have. By the way, in that tournament, I think it was a very small one, so it should not have left a significant impact. Furthermore, according to my memory, it was a play money tournament, so be thankful that it wasn't for real money.

Hey TWLLM

Today I was two tabling. One table I had AA and turned a set. Turned out I two outered a guy who had flopped a set of 5s and I got him all in for a whole buy in. Simultaneously on the other hand I flopped a set of 5s and got all in against another guy for another full buy in. He had flopped a set of 4's.

This beautiful moment in my poker career made me think of you. And how I inverse TWLLM-ed two people within about 2 seconds of each other.

Hugs

Beats happen all the time. Take this one for example. The villian had been playing like crap and so of course he raises with garbage. I raise him after the flop to make sure he hasn't yet made his hand and I was right. I put him all-in to get him off of his draw, and his flush would have been weak, but he chases the inside straight flush draw and hits it. It happens. It's only a small amount of dough and I left this particular session with $17 after I buckled down. I only left because I had to move the sprinkler.

You gotta enjoy the game, and that includes shrugging off the bad beats.

Um it sounds to me that he's talking about a cash game, not a tournament.

You, sir, have made a grizzled and highly irritated poker player smile.

NHs, and even nicer, you've made the subject of my new signature.
