      Mine is still engraved in my memory.
      It was a 10K guaranteed, 3 people left. I had never came this far in a MTT for this kind of money.

      The stacks were something like: SB 800K, BB 1.4 Mil, BU 850K. I get dealt AQs on the button and made a standard raise. The SB reraises me and I go All-In. He calls me with AJ, and ofcourse the Jack comes... not on the flop, not on the turn, but on the river...OUCH :f_cry:

      That Jack cost me over 2K and thats not including my chances of coming first which paid 8K. I still had 3rd place money which was pretty decent, but it still hurts. :s_frown:

      Once i was playing 30/60 Stud Hi and I started with KQT all of spades and on 4th I hit a J of spades and the hand was played 4 way and by 7th street all 4 were still paying bets but I couldnt hit a A, 9 or a spade . Cost me a huge pot something like 24- 26 Big Bets if my memory serves me well.

      once i was playing a cash game and i was useing the small ball strategy, so i raised from the button with a hand like j-4, but what do you know i flop two pair and get the full house on the turn.
      I go all inn which was about 200 USD (BB was 2 USD) and he gets a straight flush on the river. Can you belive it he called with a draw he had only 3 outs. WHAT A DONKEY AND HE STILL WON!!! AAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH

      Easy one for me. Won qualification to $175,000 MTT and was 9/36.
      BU raising every time round and me shoving ATC (and I really mean ATC) all in from BB with similar stacks and him folding.
      Pick up QhQc this time, push his raise again, get called...he has the other QQ and hits 4 diamonds in a row. Out in 36...paid 35. Sigh. Lesson learned. I was so green in those days.

      Worst bad beat for me was in an MTT. we were down to HU stage with 1200$ for 2nd and 2000$ for 1st.

      I'm BU with AK..... i raise 2.5BB he calls. FLOP K K A. he checks and i check since i have the nuts. TURN was a 9 and he goes all in. I'm very happy to call and he shows 99. RIVER 9 . an 800$ bad beat.


      He had these percentages:

      PREFLOP : 52.392 %

      FLOP: 0.101 %

      TURN: 2.273 %

      RIVER: 100 %

      I took one little trip to 50/100 and donked away 50% of my bankroll with AA vs AQ (all in on AT8 for his runner runner straight.).
