(This is a two part article, Click Here for the first installment)

Being on the losing end of a runner-runner in Texas Hold ‘Em is about as heavy a punch to the gut as you can get. “On Tilt” does not even begin to describe how off the game you feel at that point. Been there. Misery loves company, and if any of you reading are still feeling bowled over by a runner-runner bad beat, here’s my story and most of you should feel better.

Early on in my poker playing career, November 2004 was the month that almost broke my spirit. After losing the first kitchen game on a very bad beat, and losing the next on runner-runner, I was plagued with the “What did I do wrong?” questions. The thought that my luck could just be that bad was not an answer that brought me any semblance of peace. My mindset was desperate, but I am a gambler, I am a poker player, and going away from the game for even a week was out of the question.

Luck is luck, I told myself, you get hot runs, you get cold runs, and I just ran into a cold one. On-line tables and sit-and-go tournaments had built up my confidence after the last couple bad beats, and so that was where I turned again. Perfect randomized shuffling, an over-abundance of loose players, no worrying about facial tells to give my hand away. I could play a couple hundred hands at low risk, get back into the right mental state, and push the bad breaks behind me.

At first, everything seemed to go well, and then I got the break I was looking for in the limit hold ‘em game. Everyone at the table let me in cheap with A-4 spades, so I called. The flop was 4-4-4. I had quads. This was the trap of all traps, and I checked. One of the players behind me raised, and everyone else folded. I decided to re-raise. The other player re-raised me back, and we continued to raise and re-raise. I figured my opponent to have a high pair to make the full house, because no other hand made sense. A 2 of diamonds popped up. I kept raising and re-raising my opponent, who raised every single turn. The last card was a 6 of diamonds. My opponent bet immediately. I couldn’t believe he had chased a flush, but if he did, all the better. I bet the maximum, then the computer showed the hands. He showed a 3-5 of diamonds. His play was beyond any logic of any kind, but he nailed runner-runner to beat my four of a kind.

I logged out and turned off the computer, stunned that such a rarity could happen twice in only three days. The phone rang. My brother wanted to brag about how he cleaned out his floor at college, then he asked, “How’ve you been doing?”

“You won’t believe this past week,” I said, laughing, finally seeing the humor in a situation that nearly ended my bank roll.
