I honestly wish I never clicked on this post.
Exactly my thoughts. I didn't open it until it was stickied ... becuase I'm at work, and due to the title. But, I had to when I saw the sticky.

To think. I could have lived a happy life when this dropped off the first page.

I like the BBV hall of fame idea (instead of just one champ). This being the inaugural entry.

Re: \"Man, you could have bought a lot of porn with that.\"

Is there anyway you could possibly argue that he only intended to use his straight flush to the jack? Don't you have the option of choosing the five cards to use in hold'em?

Weak argument, but is there anything behind it?

youre not counting this misclick % that villain folds to the 3 bet. that in itself is not worth going for the cap
True.

I would never even bet in this hand btw.

I would let the guy with 88 make runner runner quads.

Re: \"Man, you could have bought a lot of porn with that.\"

I'm at work and was planning on playing some online poker when I got home. I'm seriously frightened to touch the computer after reading this.

Just the thought that reading something like this could be a little contageous has the hair on my neck standing on end.

Very correct, and you have to use both holecards.


Also to the OP: I would've died on the spot.

I dont know what to say here... Worst Bad Beat possible.

I am not sure if I would ever play Internet Poker again in your shoes.

Re: \"Man, you could have bought a lot of porn with that.\"

man I sometimes feel sorry for people but not really. And I've seen bad beats for almost your share of the jackpot but I really feel bad for you dude. If I wasn't running so bad I'd have transferred you some crying money.

No, because in hold'em, cards speak, and you pick the best 5-card hand from your 2 cards plus the board 5 cards.

You don't get to pick which cards.

Re: \"Man, you could have bought a lot of porn with that.\"

title recommendations:

'could have bought a lot of porn'
'BBV champ'
'horrible titler of posts'

any others?

and, oh yeah, this is sick. but the picture of the girl throwing up was the best response.

I'm really curious as to what game that kid was playing, or at least what he was ranting about. The WoW servers come down again?

Re: \"Man, you could have bought a lot of porn with that.\"

I am 100% certain that PP would have gotten a phone call after this hand. I don't know what I would have said, but it would have been bad news for whoever was on the other end of the phone.

This reminded me of a story I have not told in awhile. There were two other players at the table that still to this day give me a hard time about this hand (after 13 years!)
Back in 1993 the largest ever poker jackpot went up at Fort McDowell outside of Phoenix. They started it at $150,000, when that got hit it went to $100,000, then $75,000, $50,000 etc.
I was playing shortly after it started out ($150,000) when the following hand took place:

Preflop: All fold and I raise on the button, SB and BB call.

Flop: 4 , 5 , 5
SB checks, BB bets, I call, SB check raises, BB calls, I call.

Turn: 6
SB checks, BB bets, I raise, SB reraises, BB calls, I cap it, both call. (3 raises max)

River: 7
SB bets, BB raises, I call, SB reraises, BB caps it, I call, SB calls.

Hands shown:
Me: 5 5
SB: 2 3
BB: A 8
No quite as bad.

At least if it was live the OP could have beat the living [censored] out of the dealer until he was a gooey pile of blood and bone fragments on the casino's brand new carpeting.
