That's unfortunate but on the plus side you can rename yourself Screensmasher. Just Kidding. I know how you feel, I've been running into a surprisingly large # of these kind of losses lately, it's infuriating for sure.

Well, just another bad beat, thats why is so, so important to play between the limits of your bankroll, no matter if it's a cash game or a tournament or sit and go, you always need to be in bankroll. I know personal stories are much appreciated but yesterday, i also made one of the biggest mistakes in poker, as you can see in my profile i took the no deposit offer from party poker here at bankrollmob a few month ago and i started to play at NL2 of course back then to release the rest of the bonus. I quickly observed party points are a lot harder to get than full tilt points(i'm a regular at NL10 cash there, normal and rush), so after i made 30 dollars at NL2 thought to give a shot at NL10, since i master the limit so well on full tilt, but crap, the difference between players is huge, and two half stack buy ins were gone, so i needed to stop. I'll stick to NL2 on party now, and continue to make money on Full Tilt lol

Well bad beats are part of the game I am afraid. I wonder why nobody writes down the lucky hands where youself win the hand by a runner runner? I always try to keep in mind that there are two sides of the medal, it helps me not to tilt.
