What are the odds?

Last week in a tournament I got to be part of a pretty amazing hand.  It ended badly, but it was still amazing to witness it and be a part of it.

I was dealt KK, so I was excited.  Folks bet and raised before me, so I'm getting even more excited that I will win a big pot.  I raise.  The original bettors raised and raised again, so finally I just go all in, and they both call!

The guy after me, as he turns over his hand, says "do you have the red ones?"  He turned over two black aces.  Then the other guy turns over QQ!

So its AA against KK against QQ are we're all all-in.  Deal the board...

nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, and then.....Queen on the river!

The underdog with the Queens lets out a victory roar, and my tournament is over.  The guy with the aces had a pretty big stack so he got to keep playing.
