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.

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 I think, it was a shootout game I don´t like rebuy games, but i think in this situation, it was a better idea...

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.
