Default Hands that drive you nuts

Ok, something different than BB stories. What were those hands that made you want to smack innocent, cute little hamsters against the wall? Where you were already counting the dollar bills, and then the board screwed you? To begin with, here are two of my hands from today.





Your turn!

Ah yes, the hands were you just pay rake and even though you win, you lose money. Those are just dandy.

He could have been talking about the two hands in the original post.

well i have no screenshot but what i reall dont understand:

an ace high straight unfolds on the board while it s been checkd down.

someone HAS to go all in to either try and get some newby out of the pot or to get the others to call for the split.

- only minus the rake...

i just dont get it.

On a slightly different note I saw an ace high straight land on the board in a NL MTT. There was no flush possible and the pot was about 2k with 2 guys left in the hand.

The first guy thinks for a second and then goes all in for another 1k or so and the second guy folds, I didn't stop laughing for about 5 minutes.

That KK vs QQ reminds me of the multiple occasions I split pots with the honorable Notjitsu on the battlefields of our monthly tournaments.

(I think I was ahead in at least one of those too! )

Nice topic!

Ozone I finally try to correct someone for the first time and wouldn't you know I was wrong. You guys are good or a combo of my bad. And CBone is that your pic?

Sorry but in a related question... how do you imput a screen shot

Do I have to turn HTML on in my PokerTips options? I've tried from Pacific but it just wouldn't work.

Thanks,
Kevin
