    Most of the Suck Outs involve our Bad Beats, but sometimes we are the ones with the lucky horseshoe.

    A few years ago I was playing in a Flamingo 1/2 game and was down a bit. I was in seat 3. In seat 6 was this young, tough looking, extremely muscular dude who was winning. He made a moderate bet and I went All In on the turn. He snapped called with a great hand. I had three outs … and one came! Boy, was he pissed.

    Three orbits or so later, after Mr. Steroid had lost a couple more pots, I put him All In pre flop with my pocket kings. Naturally, he had pocket aces. When I rivered a king, he jumped up, his chair went flying, and ran over to me with murderous intent. The dealer immediately yelled, "Security!" as I hunkered down thinking, "Let him have a lot of money so I can sue him when he beats the crap out of me." He stood behind me, clenching his fists, shaking, and muttering. Security arrived within seconds and he literally sprinted out of the casino.

    Got stories?

    I flopped a set of 7's versus someone's set of kings. IIRC, I check raised all-in on the flop and got insta-Hellmuth-chip-smash-called by opponent in microseconds. I turned quads like a boss. That was in either a step 4 ($215) or step 5 ($700) on pokerstars.

    I miss stars, played some pretty cool tournaments around the world for peanuts.

    This... if you can't take the beats (especially at a freaking 1/2 game) you shouldn't be playing... whether it's a personality, attachment/need for the money, or whatever is motivating you.

    This is small potatoes but wth....

    I was playing a $30 daily tournament at Mandalay Bay. There were 6 players left, 5 would get paid. Me and this other guy were the only ones still in. I went all in with A 10. He had a high pair. I sucked out with a gut shot for a straight. You've never seen such a happy 40 y/o who just guaranteed himself $45 lol

    I was playing at Mirage a few years ago when this hand happened.

    I raised with two black Kings. Another guy reraised me. I went all in and he called.

    He shows two red Aces. Doh.

    Flop 2spades 4spades K hearts. Sweet.
    Turn A spades. Doh
    River 5 spades. Sweet.

    The one and only time I had a royal flush and I slow played it to the end and no one called me because they all had bad hands.

    And … then there was a cheap $65ish tournament at Harrah's one afternoon. I was card dead and low stacked and card dead, so when I saw pocket 7s I shoved and was called by Jacks. The flop, river, and turn showed four spades and I had a 7 of spades, but the guy had the Jack. As I was leaving another player noticed that I had a straight flush. Damn! I went on to win that sucker.

    You could have tried reassuring and placating him, saying something like: "Wow, thats got to hurt... oh well, at least we can say the best man won in the end" :) :) :)
    (OK, seriously don't say something like that in a similar situation)


    Personally, I used to get tilted when I took bad beats but then I took one so bad that I quit playing for about 2.5 years. The good that came out of it was that when I did start playing again I found it almost zen-like now and I never get tilted anymore... I just see bad beats as part of the game where sometimes I take them and sometimes I give them - it all works out in the end.

    For me my bad beat was: I was dealt the two red sevens. The flop was a red queen and both black sevens - giving me four of a kind. I checked, next player checked, third guy bet. I put in a small raise, next guy folds, original raiser calls. The turn is the 6 of clubs, I put out a small bet, other player reraises, I reraise, he calls. The river is the 8 of clubs, I checked, other player goes all in, I call... and he has the 9 and 5 of clubs.

    I actually didn't get upset or tilt when it happened - was just too stunned to believe what just happened and even thinking I played it bad because I gave the guy two good reasons to escape with the reraise on the flop and the bet on the turn and yet he hung in there with his flopped three to a straight and three to a flush with a pair on board and an overcard.

    Ouch!
    At Red Rock, twice within an hour, I get all my money in with pocket aces against pocket kings; twice a different woman holding kings hits a king. The next day I get all of my money in with pocket kings pre-flop against aces. The man with the bullets was playing with me the day before and saw what happened. This time I got my third king.

    My friend seriously congratulates people who call when they shouldn't and then suck out. He likes getting his money in with the best of it. I think he also wants them to stick around or to play against another day.

    Played in a ladder tourney online last year for a National Championship. Prize consisted of $10,000, X amount of $ entries into circuit events, limo pickup/drop off at McCarran, free rooms for 2 for 2 days and $2,500 spending money. After grinding day in and out up the ladder, I make it in another one of the monthly tournaments, winner of monthly went to GN for the National Championship. Monthly online tourney had a small field of 187. My goal was to win it, but to make at least the final table. Winning the monthly meant you had a free entry into the National, invitation only tourney.
    Cut to the chase: Heads up final table, Villain & I almost identical stacks little over $1M, BB $80K/SB $40K, playing back and forth for a while then...
    Me: Ad3d Villain: 22 pp, Villain bets out pf, I call. Flop: 2d, 5d, 5s. Villain leads out heavy, I call. Turn: Kd (I nut flush), Villain bets very heavy, I'm all giddy to get it AI and do, Villian snap calls. Our hands roll over and I see I'm screwed (drawing virtually dead). River: 4d Out came "I knew I was going to get SO", I was in disbelief, I still thought I lost with a A high nut flush....doh
    Yesterday evening: Playing in a free $500 tourney, make it through 2nd break and then card dead trough much of the 3rd round and look at Kh/Qh. Hand is heads up,
    Flop: Ah10h,6h (Gin!) I bet out standard and Villain calls. Turn: non-descriptive card of no help, I push AI, Villain calls. Hands roll over Villain: As/10d
    River: 10c. Lost 3/4 of my stack, cards continued south....

    Sometimes the windshield and sometimes the bug.....
