    Anyone who has ever busted out of a tournament...

    ...needs to remember it could always be worse. Great write-up of mcmatto's moments after his brutal hand:

    Link went to a dead page when i just checked, but the most brutal I saw was on TV - maybe a WPT final table - KK vs Ax

    Board K7777 - in that order

    Had that happen to me playing cash a few days back, pretty brutal.

    I'd noted that you'd been particularly active in trying to challenge Llandlad in the whinging stakes in his thread - maybe I can understand why now!!

    This link seems to work:

    I think it hugely overdone but then again I'm like that

    Candio is clearly the donk of the November Nine, and seems to have the masses rooting against him. Apparently he's been obnoxious too. ESPN loves a villain. Maybe he's just immature.

    Anyway nside's is more brutal. Of course. But given the gravity of the situation and Affleck going from a big stack--->busto....I think ESPN will work that angle big time.

    You can watch nside's on youtube, but I don't have the link. The hand takes several minutes.

    Dunno. The Hall of Fame of bust hands at the Annual WSOP Main Event reads like a Hollywood script. I still think having quad aces beaten by a rivered Royal right as Ray Romano sits down at the table takes the cake.

    +1

    That guy who won the hand was a wanker to the Nth degree.
