      Ended up getting that money back and then some from loads of fish 4BET-shoving their top pair's, so all-in-all it wasn't that bad of a night, considering those hands.

      Destroy coke, LOL

      I can still see marks on my hand from when my flopped nut house was beaten by a pocket mid-pair hitting the runner-runner quads :D That left me 10th in a MTT where i was 3rd in chips and the top 5 places were all paid several thousands more than the 10th place i died at :D So i took the coffee cup and banged it up to the wall :D :D lots of blood, my friends, lots of shivers and blood :D

      From then on i always keep o shot of vodka by my side. Just in case, you know, it's cheaper and healthier :D
