      Hey Guys Check this out for some sick sick Turn of events..

      7:00pm Walk into Halifax Nova Scotia Ca's "Casino Nova Scotia"
      7:30pm Find my way to a 1/2 NL table 8/10 players Seat9 with Max Buyin of $200.
      7:45pm watched 4 hands and time to Post the Big.
      11:45pm Left $250 at the table while i take a head clearing break from 4 hours of poker.
      12:15am Sit Back down Post Missed Blinds and Continued my regular night of poker.
      2:30 am Poker Manager Anounces 5/10NL table starting. So i cash out $220 after 7 hours of playing And Buy in to the other table for 600$ 2 others from my table shortly followed.
      2:45am The first hand is underway i post 5 BB posts 10 .. 6 Players Seated.
      My Whole Cards QQ.
      Folds to Button who raises to 25 i re-raise to 80 BB Folds Button Calls.

      Flop Q 8 6 Rainbow Flop ( 3 different suits) Pot 170$

      i play with my chips and bet 65. He instantly Raises to 220 .
      ive got the nuts and ur re-raising me..... so of course after a small deliberation and a pot Count $455... So i shove the remaining 300$ in and instantly get called.
      He Flips JJ Smiling as if to say he thinks im bluffing.. i show my trip queens leaving him devistated drawing only to running straight 9/10 or running Quads JJ.
      i start talking to the player to my right about switching tables and limits and how the luck can change,the turn 9 the river is laid and have to look back three or 4 times before it registers that ive just been donkey'd by a 10 on the river...

      i turn to BB and question his play... especially as i had been sat for several hours with the same guy knowing i was fairly Solid and certainly not one to ship 600$ first hand with anything but a made hand.

      i rebuy for $800 im dealt on the Button KK
      sb posts 5 bb posts 10 utg limps utg+1 bets 20 Next guy folds...
      hmmmm.. Surely a big re-raise will get respect.. i re-raise to 80 Sb flat calls instantly. utg folds utg+1 calls.

      Flop 789 Rainbow again. i know im gold, only thing slightly worrying would be a set or 10/J but both seem to unlikely giving the preflop action.

      Sb Checks. utg +1 bets small cant remember excactly but was either 40 or 45 i reraise to 160, sb min raises to either 280 or 285 . utg+1 folds
      ......
      now i have a dilemna.... did u really call with J10? or 56.. just thinking about it made me sick...
      so i call.
      Turn K ... i beleive this also gave a possible flush draw with 2 hearts... i wasnt worried about it as i was already concerned with the straight.
      sb bets 200$ i reraise for all my chips saying dont be a donkey buddy... once is enough... he calls and shows K6
      i looked at him in disgust as did the remaining players..
      River card 5!!!!!.

      My words and i quote aimed at the donkey were.... " your a f--ing Joke"

      Yes i was more than a little annoyed... the same guy donkied again..

      i rebuy for 600$
      a few round go by and im sat with roughly 700 of my rebuy... im utg+2 and 2 players have since sat at the table...

      10/10 in the hole.. utg folds.. utg+1 Raises to 45$ ... hes early position and new to the table cant get any read so call for a flop.. every one else folds..

      Flop: 335 utg checks... i bet 45 he calls...
      Turn: 9 on the turn ..utg bets 60 i raise to 200. he raises allin for his remaining chips,, i have him covered by about 100$
      Pot commited over pair... figured his A9 was best he had... over pair woulda been tough luck... so i call.
      he shows 34 .. river comes blank ...

      3:30 am i leave the casino over 1800$ in the hole...

      7 hours of poker playing and holding my chips..
      then in 1hr 3 hands that were in my opinion out my control... accept possibly 10's... completely ruined me.

      Please point out my flaws... and explain how i could of got away from any of the above...

      Hi HaliNutz7!

      Ouch! Except from the TT I think it's all played well. Sometimes the donkeys hit but that's why we play this game: because often enough the donkeys don't hit and give us the money.

      Good luck at the tables!

      Proper bankroll management should make bad beats a trifling matter.

      I think you need to be more polite to your opponents as well.

      while it's not right a bad-beat like that would also really get to me.

      i don't think you played any of the hands wrong (even the 10-10), but a lack of proper bankroll management means you can't just take these events in stride....

      it's not SO bad to play at a higher limit (provided it's not too high) occasionally just for a bit of adrenaline and fun, but if you do manage to go broke you have to realise that the limit IS above your bankroll, and back off accordingly.

      First hand, nothing you can do with the nuts.

      2nd hand
      You are a little annoyed and raise more then u generally would have and then play a dangerous board WAY too rough. Id say you should have at least taken a break.

      Third hand
      Bro, after 2 bad beats like that you should just go home. NOBODY keeps their composure after such beats.
