| common guys - playing for an apartment in finland - use few bucks before that ... for batteries DD|
| RoninHarper||29/11/2012 18:08:55 GMT|
| I would lose my mind in a situation like that. It would be absolutely horrific to be completely screwed that way. I mean I have lost internet connection while playing in a tournament before but never for that much cash on the line.|
| djpremier||29/11/2012 19:12:10 GMT|
| Hehe I just read a simila thread about another Finnish poker pro .. he only lost around $200 in a PLO cash game .. but still .. I'd smash that wireless mouse after something like this |
| TheMachineQC||29/11/2012 19:17:02 GMT|
| If you don't have full batteries at arm's reach, then you're not a gamer |
Especially if you're playing huge cash games like this, everyone knows this can happen...
| teddybears73||29/11/2012 20:28:03 GMT|
| well i'm not exactly a computer whizz but couldn't he just have gone into settings and assigned a hotkey or am i wrong?|
| dommelen1990||29/11/2012 22:41:58 GMT|
| and how does he go to setting without a mouse? he probally didnt had that selected else its really a beat|
| Greenmohave||30/11/2012 00:23:20 GMT|
| These stories are to terrible to want even think about happening. This is like a nightmare coming true. I would honestly consider crying if something like this happened to me. That's like having the winning lottery ticket and as you walk in to cash it someone comes by and robs you at gunpoint. Which I might just take a bullet for. lol |

Exactly !!!! Really tragic !! BTW, as long as I know, that's indicate destiny or luck factor.
Anything could be happen if you in luck or bad luck.
At this case is his bad luck and his opp luck, lol. I couldn't imagine how hurt his heart ? that's chance not everyday he get, I am sure !

| that is a costly lesson learned, battery cost = 170k|
| thefly131||30/11/2012 09:53:02 GMT|
| Just always nice to know that if you are using a laptop you have an alternetive for your wireless mouse.|
I think it s really a nightmare when it happens, having the nuts ...., seen it , .... and folding due to a not working mouse or a internet connection that fails.
| pochui||30/11/2012 12:12:39 GMT|
| so i guess this easily qualifies for Guinness book of records as "the most expensive set of batteries" i imagine how frustrating it is to watch those seconds ticking away & knowing that you cannot change anything...that's cruel, one thing when u r holding just a strong hand, but when u have the nuts & it's nosebleeds... |
| Impak007||30/11/2012 14:49:07 GMT|
| that is why i dont use wireless mouses. I hate wires but wireless mouses are slower heavier and needs to charge. Sad story thought.|
| Macubaas||30/11/2012 14:58:23 GMT|
| There is a good reasons for which all top poker players and also are pro gamers out there use wired mouse and keyboard!|
The story was really great an unfortunately realyl, really costly for Sami
I think now he learned the lesson.
| Indo36M||30/11/2012 18:42:44 GMT|
| thats terrible,but he is rich,i wunder ,a big hugh bankroll but not an touchpad,i would break internetconection ,after that i logged in whit a laptop or notebook,i guess that he have a laptop or notebook,any it sux,but 4 him its still pocket chance|
so you see ,play poker whit thousends of dollars,but buy battery 2$,to expensive there?also the more money,the greedyer some will be

| I've been there so many times its unreal, but never for this amount of money.|
In once instance though it went in my favour. I was in the Daily Dollar on FTP and close to the final table. I picked up AA under the gun and raised. Two players shoved all in and I was all set to call. Both of them had me well covered.
My mouse died on me, and frantically I was trying to find my spare mouse. I watched as I was timed out, screaming like hell. Eventually I was timed out and my hand folded. The two players who were lal in both had lower Pocket pairs, and both hit a set. No ace came, so I ended up saving my game from it. I got my spare mouse carried on playing and finiished in 4th place earning a cool $500 which was $420 more than I would have done if I'd called.
So in my case a screwed up mouse saved me....

| Yes worst then a bad beat definitely sad sad sad !!!!!|
| Sorin888||01/12/2012 10:10:49 GMT|
| This story sounds like a legend.In the iPoker network is not plausible,because you can use F1,F2,F3 buttons from keyboard to make calls on game.Just a click to fortune.|
| Fakiry||01/12/2012 16:12:58 GMT|
| Gosh, internet connections on Eastern Europe are really winning a lot of bad publicity with all these news. If there's any company available to secure a good service, they can think of picking up on these cases to make that kind of advertisments that talk bad about the competitors to win space in the market. And this would work just fine.|
| PeteRePeter||01/12/2012 17:40:29 GMT|
| with no mouse can one not just use his tab key to move??|
| irishgilly||02/12/2012 03:43:50 GMT|
| 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... |
| Doarulle||02/12/2012 04:13:37 GMT|
| That's weird... you must know when you start to play some high MTT... when i played MTT i have both notebooks with 1 stick of net... and both baterry full... in case the current goes or the internet... immediatly change the notebook and internet connection... that just for few $ buy-in... when you playing a MTT you must know how much will during and the rest...|
| Gun2her||03/12/2012 19:18:52 GMT|
| I have no sense of empathy so this is just wildly amusing to me. Laughed my ass of reading this.|
| maxima191||05/12/2012 16:01:38 GMT|
| That's what wrong with people and technology if it's not broke works good don't upgrade it|
| rv||08/12/2012 16:12:14 GMT|
| 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 !!!
| victoryv111||20/12/2012 14:17:24 GMT|
| i just use pad on laptop if this happens simple.|
| Tooned||21/12/2012 02:46:32 GMT|
| hahaha! same happened to me,a few times, cordless mice suck big time! never lost 170k though!:s more like 1.70! lol|
| uhhcallmi||21/12/2012 03:09:23 GMT|
| i got me a wireless mouse with 2 batteries,,, 1 always charging.. so this won't happen to me..|
my biggest problem is ,,,losing internet connection to te pokerclient...has not happened for over 2 month now..but always afraid it will happen again...
| flushnut33||21/12/2012 03:46:54 GMT|
| wow huge pot, if that had happened to me i would have restarted my router to give me more time through disconnection protection, and made SURE i got some batteries in time..but saying that now would i really have thought of that during the situation????|
| soeoner18||29/12/2012 04:27:13 GMT|

| rbdflyboy||29/12/2012 06:29:16 GMT|
| 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. |
