Complete frustration

      Sorry to be writing. I know I shouldn't in the first place. If I had a blog I could put it there or something. I don't know.

      Anyway, I had made my way winning a satellite to another satellite which was the last step to a big live event. I was really excited about it, been waiting this tournament for days.

      It started, I was really concentrated and playing very well. Tight agressive. Starting stack was 1500 chips, after some 20 minutes I had more than 2000. Without excessive risks.

      Then this happens:

      50/100 NL - Holdem - 8 players

      BB: 1,185.00
      UTG: 1,305.00
      UTG+1: 1,215.00
      MP: 2,094.00
      Hero (MP+1): 2,275.00
      CO: 1,190.00
      BTN: 2,856.00
      SB: 1,215.00

      SB posts SB 50.00, BB posts BB 100.00

      Pre Flop: (150.00) Hero has K:spade: K:heart:

      fold, fold, MP calls 100.00, Hero raises to 400.00, fold, fold, fold, fold, MP calls 300.00

      Flop: (950.00, 2 players) J:spade: 6:diamond: 8:spade:
      MP bets 475.00, Hero raises to 1,875.00, MP calls 1,219.00

      Turn: (4338.00, 2 players) 6:spade:

      River: (4338.00, 2 players) 7:diamond:

      MP shows 6:club: 8:club: (Full House, Sixes full of Eights) (PreFlop 21%, Flop 71%, Turn 95%)
      Hero shows K:spade: K:heart: (Two Pair, Kings and Sixes) (PreFlop 79%, Flop 29%, Turn 5%)
      MP wins 4,338.00

      And it really feels like giving up poker. I know many here must have felt the same.

      Those players were so bad. So bad. I could (and should) have made it.

      How does a blockhead puts 1/5th of her stack on a 68 hand?

      Holy s***t.

      I don't even know what to think or to say. I'll have to stay off poker for a while again. It's ridiculous frustration, really not worth it.

      If she had slowplayed AA, fine. If she had JJ, and even 66 or 88, fine. If she had Axs and made a flush, fine (I only put all in on flop 'cause I had K of spades). But playing 68 with 1/5 of your stack on an important satellite, flopping two pair and making a full house. That's... I don't even have words to describe it.
