Finished 31st out of 70 some players. Top 9 got a ticket. Have never been so card dead. AJ was the best hand I had in 3 and a half hours.

Played in a tourney game at this sketchy a$$ bar recently.$25 buy in + rebuy and add on, nothing crazy. I was playing quite solid and had decent reads on the other players, getting close to final table. Anyway, this obnoxious fat biker type guy gets into a pot with me and we both have about the same amount of chips. AJ for me and board comes J54. Another player was already all-in so when fat villain bet out I repopped all-in cause I knew his bet was trash. He called making a claim about being pot committed clearly not understanding the meaning of the term with 8 9. The turn came a 6 so now he's standing up screaming at the board SEVEN! SEVEN! Everyone in the bar is staring as it's quite embarrassing and of course the 4-outer hits on the river and fatty erupts in joy screaming and causing even more of a scene.

I'm playing at the same place tomorrow so if I stop posting assume I've been bludgeoned to death by these hillbillies for taking their money or from givin fatty the hands.

That's a hard pass. 

Tough beat though. The tournament I played in over the weekend had a beat that hurt everybody. Every casino has a Bad Beat Jackpot. This one was quad queens beating aces full of queens. Well 3rd hand in there's big action pre flop. Board comes xQQ. Check check to the river where an ace comes and both get it all in, to flip over pocket queens and aces. Qualifies for the Bad Beat Jackpot.... in a cash game. Not tournaments. Table lost out on $45,000.

Disgusting! Did the people in the hand know tourney hands weren't included? That would suck.

I always make sure I know the rules on the bad beat or best hand jackpot so I don't do something to muck the whole thing up. Even at this hillbilly game I asked how their best hand of the night jackpot works regarding using 1 or 2 hole cards. Well that question caused a huge argument at my table cause none of these jokers knew what's up. Probably 15 minutes of talking about hypothetical hands for the jackpot, it was ridiculous.

Happy to report I cleaned said fatty and collected about tree fiddy on a chop end of the night. Although I felt bad because it appears said villain has tourette's syndrome upon further review.

That doesn't make it any less hilarious. Even more so if anything. Well done.

To his credit, he really kept his twitch/scream/swear combos to times when he didn't have cards in his hand. Never the less, it paints a good picture of this hick bar I'm playing in.
