Sick bad beat... quads over quads!?!?!?!?

Omgitsjoshua spent a lot of money last night, in order to get a tattoo. Here is a picture of the tattoo he got:

I don't know why he wanted to pay so much for the tattoo; he doesn't have any tattoos in real life... So why pay $53.90 for an online tattoo? Really, it's meaningless, right? Who pays attention to such things?

Anyway, I say all of the above in jest: Josh flopped the nuts with QUADS! And how do you get your money in the middle when you're behind with QUADS?!?!?!? When the villain turns QUADS himself!

I will never speak of a bad beat again in my life, after having seen the disaster below.*

*I retract that last statement. I still reserve the right to complain - just not as loudly as I normally would.

Full Tilt Poker $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em - 6 players
The Official Hand History Converter

Hero (BTN): $53.90
SB: $129.65
BB: $54.95
UTG: $25.10
MP: $90.30
CO: $50.00

Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is BTN with Jc Js
UTG raises to $1.50, MP calls $1.50, 1 fold, Hero calls $1.50, SB calls $1.25, 1 fold

Flop: ($6.50) Qd Jh Jd (4 players)
SB checks, UTG checks, MP checks, Hero checks
Crafty Josh plans to let the villain "get there" so that he can get his stack in the middle... DO I REALLY NEED COMMENTARY ON THIS?

Turn: ($6.50) Qs (4 players)
SB checks, UTG checks, MP checks, Hero bets $3, SB folds, UTG folds, MP calls $3

River: ($12.50) 8s (2 players)
MP bets $5, Hero raises to $49.40 all in, MP calls $44.40

Final Pot: $111.30
Hero shows Jc Js (four of a kind, Jacks)
MP shows Qc Qh (four of a kind, Queens)
MP wins $108.30
(Rake: $3.00)
For those of you who can't read, that would be 4 of a kind over 4 of a kind. This is a bad beat by definition. Maximum suckage - I propose a moment of silence in reverence to Josh... please everyone bow their heads when they read this, and give the man your best wishes of luck in the future.*

*Selfish me says thank God it wasn't me on the end of the beat-down stick.


  1. Ouch!! That is pretty freaking sick!!

  2. $53.90 is nothing compared to the $6k in therapy i've already spent. thanks for the tribute meister
