Not being very tech savvy, I have zero idea if one can use a key to move instead of the dead mouse. What a horror story though. As for all those making fun of him for not having a spare battery for the mouse- give me a break- this could happen to anyone using a wireless. How often have you thought you had extra only to discover you had just not quite enough...of anything. Batteries, eggs, cigarettes,one can easily run out of any thing. Chances are very good that he thought he had more batteries. I don't think I would sit down to play a tourney without spare batteries right next to me, but some times people forget the most important things. I really feel for you dude. I was once playing break the bank at a micro casino. I had been playing with dollars. Kept losing. Got down so low, had to switch to pennies. On the first penny pull I won free spins, which led to me winning 750,000 coins. Had they still been dollars, I would have been ever so happy. Since they were pennies, well, not so much...

I have no sense of empathy so this is just wildly amusing to me. Laughed my ass of reading this.

I have lost so many $ due to bad connection and other pc fails. Those situations are more painful than bad beats.
Bring more disc protection time !!!

happened to me once as well. Had a spare right beside me. Changed out the bad one and was good to go. After that, have a hard wire mouse ready to plug in.....just in case.
