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.[b]


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.


Yeah, I'm thinking that something is not quite right there... :-?

Hmm... maybe I just had the flush. That must be it. I know that the 9 of clubs I was using was the same card that bit me in the butt.

Man, that comment shows just how much poker I play, huh?

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...


i didn't know someone actually knew how to play backgammon. :-o :-b i remember when i was a kid...almost every year on my bday i would get one of those 3 in 1 game box with checkers, chess and backgammon and i wondered why they even bothered to include backgammon in the box...no one knew how to play it anyway. :-D

I just had a pretty unlucky weekend.

My wife's employer informed her she has 2 weeks for maternity leave on Friday. "Period. End of story" was the quote given to her. They do not have to abide by FMLA due to loopholes. Not a big deal really due to the fact she was planning on leaving anyway - but being emotional and pregnant she didnt need to be treated that way.

On Sat. it was my nephews BDay party down in DET. My car'd alternator dies overnight and we dont get on the road until 1p (party started at noon). By 3p we had driven 20 miles on the express way - literally 20 miles in 2 hours due to construction and traffic jams. We turned around and went home.

We arrived home to find our central air had died. I got to spend the rest of the weekend fighting 90 degree heat in my house with a 2 yo.

Sat night my wife is in the shower, and Im in the living room with my daughter. I go into the kitchen to get a glass of soda. I hear a blood curdling scream and run back into the living room to find my baby had tripped and busted her chin on the table - blood everywhere - looked like a zombie. It was the first time either of us has seen her bleed. It turned out to be nothing big - but even still for first time parents it was a bit traumatic.

On Sunday our Clothes Drier died. We ended up finishing the laundry at the cleaners.

We are fine now - everything is fixed and/or replaced - but damn it was a long weekend that just seemed as if anything that could go wrong - did.

Thats my unlucky weekend story. ;-)

Damn Cornbread, I thought my weekend from hell was bad....Here it is:

Easter 1980?

I go into work to make a deposit, on the way home my car cuts out at the bottom of an off ramp. I am literally 50 feet from a gas station but they won't come look at it..."Tow it" :-[

So I pay to have it towed 50 feet to the top of the ramp. Once inside the bay the two geniouses...and I use the term loosely...start replacing parts. They replace the battery, both cables, the alternator and probably would have gotten around to the engine had I not intervened. I was looking under the hood and noticed a broken wire on the opposite side of the engine compartment. Being the inquizative guy I am I connect the loose wire and....whalla! all lights come on! I find out later it's the horn-relay for gods sake. :*)

I take off...ten miles down the road the car cuts out. !+)

I open the hood and see that the battery cable has disinigrated and burned into the battery ruining both. So I call my co-workers and ask them to drive my other car from work where I was trying to sell it, meanwhile my wife to be waiting to go to easter dinner at the mother in laws, comes to meet me.

We are now sitting in the "Car for sale" waiting on wrecker #2 and that car dies. :~(

Thinking that the car needs a jump we wait on driver #2. When he pulls up I roll down my window "Hey can you jump this one, and tow that one" 8-o His look told it all.

I later found out car#2 had a bad fuel pump that coincidentally went bad at that very momment.

I missed easter dinner :~( ...but also missed the mother in law :-D

I try to forget all the unlucky things that happen to me within an hour. It's how I make it through the day. Although I really should stop playing poker; there's too much luck involved for me.
