We've all been there....  we've all griped about it on theses forums...... we all have our own stories to tell........... There are times when the poker gods take their own vengeance out on us mere poker mortals. You have a handful of outs, excellent pot odds, good position and you've caught the all-in donkey with a monster hand.........but NO, you're now seeing your monster hand RIPPED apart by a 10,6 os. The dealer, the site, the poker gods even lady luck have taken to kick you repetitively in the boll**x. They've dealt their wicked game and (whilst sitting back and laughing at you!!!!) have given the donkey all the carrots they need to win this race! These are the times we delve into......... 'The Dark Side Of Poker' Is it really worth it? Were my 3hrs of time, 2 re-buys and solid play worth the fist mark in the comp screen, cat kicked across the patio, kids happy to go to bed at 6??  Was my play wrong?  Am i playing at the wrong level?  WHERE DID IT ALL GO WRONG!!!!!   Share it all here... This IS the dark side of poker. All of the conspiracy theories, coersion, everyones out to get you.......... IT'S ALL TRUE!!!!     Let it all out here, we hear the voices too.   Share your 'Dark Side Of Poker'
To learn from our mistakes, we must first make a mistake

So true expecially the kids going to bed at 6pm then 20minutes later your out. What about the tournaments that you need to get up at 3 in the morning, you play for an hour, playing really well, hit trips play right down to the river and a knob jockey with 5 7  off suit hits a gut shot straight. Do you want me to go on. I can be here all day but I think I might get more out of writing it all down in a new poker book.
