Worst luck you've ever had...

Postby davidmarver » Fri Jul 01, 2005 1:04 am

I just played the most frustrating game of backgammon in my entire life. The person I was playing against needed four straight rolls of high doubles (needed 2 of double sixes, other 2 could have been either 4's or 5's depending on the order) and needed me to not roll doubles once. So, I'm sitting pretty right? Sike! The guy I'm playing rolls three straight double sixes and ends the game on double 4's.

Now that may not be the worst of luck I've ever had, but it's pretty close. That said, I want to hear your unlucky stories...

Traded for Bonds. Traded for Schilling. Traded away Willis, dropped Ensberg. (All before they had their respective troubles/great seasons.)

Playing poker, lost a hand with four 8's against someone elses hand of four 9's.

I once flopped a straight flush (clubs) in a heads-up round of Hold 'Em. The straight went through ten, and I went all in when the board paired the nine on 4th street. My opponent called, and I was thinking he had another flush or maybe a boat. He flipped over a pair of 9s and laughed all the way to the bank.

Ummm shouldn't he have cried all the way to the bank to take out more money? A straight flush beats 4 of a kind.
