So I'm playing a $20 Double-or-nothing Sit-N-Go online....Six seated, four are left, so I'm on the bubble and short stacked when I get a King-Queen off suit.
I go all in and I'm called. Turns out I'm up against A-A. Damn.
The flop comes: J-10-A. I flopped a straight! The other guy flopped a set of aces, but who cares, because I flopped a straight!
The turn comes a King. No big deal, I'm still going to win...
The river comes another King! The board pairs and now he has aces full of kings. My straight loses.
Its one of the weird, often sad facts about poker that a lesser hand like 3-of-a-kind or two-pair can, with the flip of one card, instantly become a full house and beat all the straights and flushes in-between that thought they were winners.
