This has to be the worse bad beat with the money going in pre-flop one can take... Mine anyway... Why o why couldn't I be on the right side of that freaky freak statistical event, damn you, Poker Gods?!?!?!?

Considering another fscking bad-beat type twist of faith that happened while my pal Yves (real name, I kid you not ;)) and I were watching the Habs game and playing a NLHE Freezout Heads-up on Saturday night. I got dealt pocket rockets, but didn't even have time to look at'em before Yves folded his small blind, to which I shrugged and went "awwwight", peeling my cards out of habit/curiosity only to see those 2 beautiful aces staring me right back in the eye. Then came what I regret the most in like ages... He showed some crap like 92off, so I went "Let's run it, you'll hit 2 pairs, you lousy luckbox!" (he is one luckbox fella :P). And we did. What did I flop? That's right, quads Aces... Quad-fscking-Aces.In.A.Heads-up-Fscking-Match... I knew right there that I'd been in the middle of a variance shit storm since a week, and it was not gonna be over this weekend anyway...

I had to take a pic of that... to attest of it... I swear on my mother's soul it is NOT A RIGGED PIC!!!! Yves can testify if need be... rofl!

So here's a joke about it all, just to make sure I can smile again... lol.
