      Ok, I'm really trying to keep myself from making whine posts and that kind of stuff, but I just wanna share this hand. I've been running pretty bad in general and this felt like the apex of it all.

      This is from a VIP freeroll in iPoker. I had been playing pretty solid and tight. A couple of AK that didnt hit, another AJ didnt hit, no pp hit. I hadn't really hit anything and half my stack was gone and then this hand happens. I don't have hh so I'm just writing it:

      Hero holds 77:


      UTG calls 80, Hero calls 80, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, SB calls 40, BB checks.

      Flop: 7 :diamond: 9 :diamond: K :heart:

      SB checks, BB checks, UTG bets 320, Hero raises 1350 (AI), SB folds, BB folds, UTG calls.

      UTG shows KQ

      Turn: Q

      River: Q


      :(

      I've had worse beats, but the whole context just makes it all worse.

      In poker if there is a chance for something to happen, one day it will.
      Sure it sucks but at least it was a freeroll and not something like sunday million buble. ;)

      Yeah =) In the end this beat actually made me feel good. It gave me a lot of confidence (which was pretty shattered) to be honest

      Losing with bottom set to top pair is standard :(

      I actually had a hand like that the other day although slightly worse

      Held AA against 77

      The flop was A74 rainbow and we pushed all in. he got the last 7 in the deck on the river and won with his four of a kind. One outers are never fun but it happens sometimes.

      I guess in minbet poker it happens more often :D

      How the hell did you become platinum by the way? Shouldn't it take you just a blind post in order to reach diamond?

      Ouch, tough one. I had one like that once. Except that I sucked out the guy on the turn anad he 1 outered me on the river. lol

      It was like this:

      I held Ax. We were both all in by the turn.

      Board camed 33A A 3

      He showed 53, lol.
