I won an entry to one of those events, my biggest event by far ever and bust out first hand with my AA to a AK, flop was KK543 welcome to pokerstars.

I won 2 entries to the rebuy WCOOP event. I got AA once and KK twice on the first round. The AA won a small pot (no callers), but both the KKs were wiped out by an A on the flop. Sometimes you have to figure it just isn't your night ...

I have been using the hendon mob tracker for the last few months (worth a try and its free). When I lose I summarise the final hand (when I win I know it just sheer genius and don't usually put anything!). If you play MTTs you have to get very lucky to avoid the bad beats. I have posted the comments below just for a bit of a laugh.


guy went all in on nut flush draw - called with top but flush came
Called down a semi bluff on turn and guy spiked card on river

You may hate to moan, but the problem is that others love it !

Telling a bad beat story only encourages the rest to try to top you. Let's make sure this blog remains focussed on its main priority - scurrulous gossip :-)

Please...Camel, can you censor all this "I'm so unlucky" shite - I probably inflicted most of those badbeats on big belly!

Not sure about your footie tips but I bow to your track record so will follow anyway...how about Boston on the handicap at plus 13 points? (18-1)...come on Gazza!

I'm looking for some %s on the Camel....what's next?

Why didn't I get any soup?


ps Hi Andy - got a new baseball cap yet?

Yes indeedy, a very smart QPR baseball cap that will be the #1 choice next time I visit the US. If anyone runs that over there will be trouble !
