Default Best odds you've lost with

I've just lost a pretty bad hand, but I'm sure you can do better!

I have A7. Three people at the table. Me (2500 chips) someone else (1500 chips) and the chip leader (3500 chips). Its a S&G.

Flop is A72. So i'm looking good. Raise a little, slowplaying. Both call.

Turn is A. So I now have the clear best hand, no question. I raise a medium amount, the chip leader guy folds and the next goes all in. Hurrah! 1500 chips coming my way...

I looked at the hand simulator later. he had A6. I'm sooo home dry - 95% to win! 5% to draw if a 7 comes up (which of course it does).

What are the best winning odds you've managed to lose (or split) with?

Where is this magical world where quads beat straight flushes?

Worst one i think was tonight in a NL MTT on 32red

Had KK I raise it up from the blinds having got 3 limpers, two of which fold to my raise.

Flop comes K72. Short stack shoves and I call showing trips and he has QJo.
Pokerhand has me at a 96.8% favourite at this point

Turn A - I'm still 90.2%

River 10 - BINGO!!! Intitate Cheat Kicking

At this point I'm crippled and manage to limp into the money then get busted by a higher pocket pair. darn.

I think he was getting at A2345 spades.

I think 99.9% is the highest I've ever seen. Personally I had 96% on my 5 5 with 25A on the flop, he has AJ, get done by a jack on the turn and a jack on the river. I've posted that before, still feeling the pain.

No clue to tell you the truth, maybe they are one in the same.

But A-5 of spades has been a str8 flush in this world for at least 5 years... maybe more.

Shocking but true.
