Default Have to pass on this bad luck....

So I'm playing 1-2 NL at the Taj yesterday in AC, and I flop the nut full house, I have 99 and the board is 998. To make a long story short I lost my entire stack to a guy who flopped quad 8's. I almost never say something in holdem is unbelieveable, but this was about as close as it gets. It's way more statistically improbable than someone catching a one outer on the river, as that is only 45-1. The chances of flopping top boat and running into flopped quads has got to be multiple thousands to 1. I posted in the proabability section to see if someone wanted to take a crack at it. Oh well, you can't even get made when you lose your stack on a hand like that, you just sit back and laugh at the statisitcal anomaly that busted you out lol. Oh well, I'm sure that it'll happen the other way around for me in the future....or maybe not lol.

If you want it to happen again sooner, rather than later, just start playing Omaha...

The funny thing about this is that my friend (who was having really bad luck at 10-20 limit), and I got drunk afterwards and tried to start a low limit omaha hi/lo game hah

Did you lose $15K or so, like what happened at my local casino PL game to a guy with JJ - flop came down J T T.

I lost to a huge pot (~12k) on a 9 9 K board and I had pocket kings. Go figure
