315pm - Well, I've completed the UB portion of the day, playing 5 SnGs, placing in two, for a net of -$30. I still have $21.50 there, but will move on to ....


Worst. Beat. Ever. Or at least the worst for a final three. Or at least the worst for me today. I was one of the final three in a Turbo $15+1 at PokerStars when this hand popped up.

PokerStars Game #848554520: Tournament #3389044,

*** SHOW DOWN ***

bishopthecat: shows [6d 4d] (a flush, King high)

I couldn't believe it. I called a bluff at the perfect time. He basically conceded by saying "GG", knowing he got caught with his hand in the cookie jar. After the flop, I was 91.5% to take the hand and pretty much guarantee the win. He goes runner-runner for a baby flush and I'm shortstacked with usurious antes and blinds. I went out just a few hands later with blinds at 400/800. Sheesh.
