here you go... this is what bad beat does to you. no matter how old and experienced you are, no matter how many sh1t you witnessed in your life, no matter the no matterness itself- when your aces get cracked by 26 off suite, only a shot in villains leg is the appropriate measure to be taken.

When i read the title of this news it came to my mind here is another U.S. gun story and i was right this happen in this Country were almost everybody is having a gun.

No problem you go to the store and you buy a gun like if you were buying a bag of chips. No wonder why there are so many crime there.

From now on the poker game will played like we see in the far west movies with each a gun on the table and you better play the game like it should be or your out but dead. Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile

That 'so many crime' is usually comitted by illegally obtained weapons and firearms...
U could find crazy people anywhere - who will shoot first and ask later.

Aha she believed that he had stolen her money in a earlier game before, but she played again with him in a poker home game at another day and killed him than Blink I think, it was a shootout game Big Smile I don´t like rebuy games, but i think in this situation, it was a better idea...

Looks like it happened in one of the sparsely populated areas in Alabama.

They tend to being calmer than the young ones though, so this obviously wasn't just a result of some spontane anger issue I guess. Who knows what's the truth? Grammy was pissed of as hell.

Online poker is the answer to poker's physical violence problem.
No one get shot or stabbed or mugged by other players.
Brick and mortar / home games are more fun but less so when someone pulls a gun.
I once got threatened by a shady looking character at a local casino.
I beat him in a pot, next time i meet with him in the designated smoking area of the casino, he passive-aggressively commented that people often get slashed in the face with a knife around here.
I avoided that fucker on the table and pretty soon afterwards decided to play online exclusively.
