Hands you've never forgotten

      Does anyone else have hands that they have won/lost and never forgotten?

      This was the last hand of a tournament I was in approximately 4 years ago.

      Can't remember the platform (possibly Full Tilt) and don't have the hand history anymore, unfortunately.

      Dealt: A 9

      We were both pretty evenly stacked. Pre-flop I made a standard raise which he called.

      Flop: J T Q

      Continuation bet was also called, after a delay.

      Turn: 8
      I made a pot-size bet here which he raised to double the pot.
      I re-raised to which he pushed.
      Called instantly and he showed A 4 (and seeing my cards said "wow, vnh.")
      98% favourite, crossed fingers and closed eyes.

      River: K

      Finished 2nd with a king high straight flush.

      Think I stopped playing for a few weeks after that.
      Early lesson that "bad beats happen and are part of the game."

      In fact, I think I hardly tilt because of that hand.
      "4 Kings losing against 4 Aces? That isn't as bad as this hand I had once a few years ago..."

      Here is one from not long ago I will probably remember. Villain is loose aggressive with high showdowns, calling and raising almost everything.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with T, T (Comment)
      UTG raises to $0.16, 2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.28, MP2 calls $0.05 (All-In), Hero calls $0.28, 4 folds, UTG calls $0.12.

      Flop: ($0.95) T, J, 2 (3 players) (Comment)
      UTG checks, MP1 bets $0.04, Hero raises to $1.03, UTG folds, MP1 raises to $2.02, Hero raises to $4.98 (All-In), MP1 calls $2.70 (All-In).

      Hero shows: 10, 10
      MP1 shows: A, Q

      Turn: ($10.65) K (Comment) <-- NOOOO WAAAYYY!!!!

      River: ($10.65) 2 (3 players) (Comment) <-- It's all good! :D

      Final Pot: $10.65

      He sucked out with a gutshot Straight, I sucked back with a Full House:D

      A few weeks ago I was on the bubble of an MTT

      I had QQ, went allin against the chip leader (I think he was trying to steal my blinds)

      He turned over 53o v my QQ

      flop came A24

      Hi all this one happened to me about 4 weeks ago, I was in a tornament on Williamhill poker the last 11 just off final table. I was in MP and dealt AA so as it was check round to me 1 call ahead I raised a normal opening bet every 1 folded to bb he called & limper called flop comes

      A :heart: A :spade: 2 :heart:

      I'm thinking how much can I get off these guys as it was check round to me I raised about half the pot bb goes all in limper folds I call thinking what a gift this guy must have KK or something decent so the cards are turned over he shows 7 :club: 3 :heart: at that point I'm think he's gone as I had him cover

      turn comes down 4 :heart:

      so now he's got 1 out

      river comes 5 :heart:

      so he's the straight flush crippling me with only about 1500 chips left only about 1.5 bb's.

      All I can say is donkeys sometimes win with garbage.

      Don't think I ever for get that 1

      another hand I'll never forget at willianhill about 3 years ago in a torny, when I first started playing poker

      I was on bu had kj raised got call from sb

      flop came KKJ

      i raised he came over the top all in

      i called him he turned over AJ

      turn A

      river A

      thing is I only seem to remember the bad beats on me and never when I put a bad beat on someone else, is this the case with every 1.

      ps I still like play against donkeys

      This was the other week at a pub I go to weekly for poker.

      Dealt 7:spade: 7:heart:

      Someone goes all in in front of me. I call, 1 player folds, another calls.

      Flop comes:

      A:diamond: 3:club: 7:club:

      Go all in. Person sitting to the left calls.

      He turns over trip aces, I turn over trip 7's.

      Turn comes:



      3 of something.

      I hit a one outer, and over doubled my money. :tongue:
      Ironic thing was the guy with 3 aces knocked me out the week before, beating my straight with a flush. :)

      @ topic:
      I had QQ vs AA on AQx A, all-in on turn.
      This was an NL50 bad beat jackpot table, and if I had hit the 1-outer, I'd be about 120k$ richer now. yay :)

      I never forgot this hand:

      My friend was playing an $2 superturbo tournament on prima and I was watching and talking over skype.
      He picked up A:heart: T :heart: and had the perfect chance to double up, but suddenly - his internet connection got disconnected for 30 seconds and he got timed out. Our chat was sth like this

      - Dammit, i had AT :heart:
      - Your internet broke down?
      - Yeah, whatever, there will be other chances.
      - Yeah right! After folding a possible royal flush hand?!

      Flop comes Q :heart: K :heart:

      I start laughing and say "LOOK YOU DID FOLD A ROYAL FLUSH!!", he says sth like 'naah naah whatever'.

      Bam two guys push in.

      River comes the J :heart:

      All i heard from my speakers was something similar to insane laughter, I'm not sure though, couse it might've been me who was laughing so hard :D

      WSOP ME qualifyer 2nd gets 400+$, 1st got a WSOP package.

      3 people left I was 2nd in chips. Small stack had 1/3 my stack

      I raise pre flop with AA

      Big stack pushes all in

      I call

      he shows A8o

      his 8 gave him the flush to take me out.

      I get 0$

      I'm still pissed and will always be pissed over this.
