Default I Lose

Here is a little story I've decided to share with those of you who enjoy laughing at the misfortunes of others.
Shorthand limit @ UB. Flop a set w/pocket Qs. The worst player at the table (Stop looking at me! I'm talking about that other guy!) calls my raise. The board pairs 7s on the turn. Now he reraises me. Natch, I put him on trip 7s (heh heh). Leadfoot and I cap the turn and river. Funny I didn't hear the rattle of dusty old bones when that 7 hit the turn, but I was enraptured in the rare glory of holding the stone cold nuts. You already know the ending where he shows me his pocket 7s. And this at shorthand, where it's not very likely for anyone to have a pocket pair, let alone 2 players, let alone a boat sunk by quads. What are the odds!
After delivering this blistering beat, he fled with my money, no doubt realizing he'd just fritter it all away. Since I play within my bankroll and skill level, this heinous hit didn't floor me. What I learned from this beat that was bad (but not a bad beat) is: 1) Never say never in poker, if it can happen, it eventually will; and 2) I should have gotten hinky when he called the flop raise!

This could be the longest thread ever with nobody having read the first post.
