    I was playing 1/2 at the Borgata in AC (Not Vegas related, but you guys will enjoy a good groan with me) yesterday and had A/9 Clubs on the button. Player in early position makes it $10, three callers in front of me, so I call with suited A as does BB, so six to the flop into 60'ish pot. 3/5 of clubs with random card gets checked all the way around. Turn is the 6 of clubs. Player bets $30, fold/fold player raises to $120. I jam my 300 or so to scoop pot and protect some random two pair boating up. To my surprise, both players call. Dealer puts out 6 of spades on the river to pair the board and make me think two pair or set just got there. I flip over my ace high flush, player to my left (who raised to $30) shows King high flush, other player who raised to $120 shows................


    .............wait for it............

    4/7 of clubs. Oof!

    I feel your pain, something similar happened to me in Las Vegas and I just posted about it a couple days ago. You played it the right way and there is nothing you can do sometimes.

    I hope you are not gun-shy in the future.

    We've all been on both sides of those types of hands... good for you for keeping your head straight, not tilting away the rest of your cash, and making a good comeback. Best that could have happened after the bad beat you described. I'd probably need to take at least a few hours away from the table to clear my head after a monster like that, even at a 1/2 game.
