So I went over a friend's house tonight to play a little tourney and ended up involved in the oddest 3 consecutive 3 hands in a long time. 1st hand I end up losing about 2000 in chips when Im dealt pocket 9's and nothing on the board...guy stays in with me and beats me with pocket 10's.

Hand 2, I am dealt pocket kings and bet 500 chips pre flop...go all in after the flop when no aces or obvious straight or flush draws come out. End up winning that hand after the river.

Hand 3: Believe it or not I am dealt pocket kings again! :shock: I bet the same as the last hand with 500 pre-flop then all-in after the flop...get called and beat a guy who had pocket queens 8)

Ended up splitting the pot for the tourney with the last remaining guy an hour or so later so that we could get a 2nd game in tonight before ppl had 2 go home but if it wasnt for that little series I would have been done. :lol:

I've run into streaks like that--not very often. It's fun while it lasts. :D

I forgot to mention that the guy I beat in the 2nd hand also had a pocket pair. 6 pocket pairs in 3 consecutive hands.

Not really all that shocking.

Try losing a hand with 4 kings.

Yes, 4 kings.










Oh wait, I didn't tell you they were on the board and it was high card in hand? :twisted:

My friends mom recently lost quad 4's to quad 5's. She had the pocket pair and flopped it. He had pocket 5's and hit runner runner. Of course she didn't mind all that much. There was a $30k bad beat jackpot at the casino.

Preflop all in of Js, Qs, and Ks in a 90 man tourney at the final table down to 7 people.

Yep...I had Ks. A Queen and a Jack hit the flop. :lol: It was for all my chips except 700. Let's just say I lost the tourney.

or my favorite...we will call this the LV special

Guy gets the turn and the river to make a straight after being in a hand wayyyy toooo long that has been bet every step of the way. Can't even bet them out. I love when they get rewarded. :lol:

Some guys have a knack for playing trash. My neighbor plays things like 9 5 more often than not. He will usually hang around a while, knock out someone or two and then go down in flames. When he beats me I end up looking like Phil Helmuth. In the Poker Brat way, not the Poker Genius, just to be clear.

Yeah, that was pretty much inevitable, but still was hoping to come out ahead in net. :)
