It's me half venting, and half "wow" that happened to me last night. Summary: I flopped quads and still got eliminated. The tourney we play in my group's monthly home game is 20k chips and 40 min levels. We had 2 tables (19 players), and down to 12 players when this hand takes place (both tables 6-handed). Hero down to about 8k in the 400/800 level (we don't do antes) and wakes up UTG with pocket 9s, and happily gets the chips in with 10BB's and a jump to 500/1000 in under five minutes. A player in mid position makes the call, everyone else folds, Villain tables AK suited. A classic coinflip. Flop: 99K (please ship me the pot) Turn: K (at this point the other table stops to watch what could be the spectacle of the evening) River: K Hero faints and wakes up a few minutes later with no chips and a strong taste of whisky on his breath.
