Bad Beat: Pocket Aces vs Backdoor Straight Flush


No Limit Texas Holdem can be such a cruel game!

This was my final hand last night. The board reads right to left here, so that straight flush came with the turn and river. One second you’re all in before the flop with pocket aces facing a relatively benign first three cards, the next you’re out as two consecutive bolts of lightning dash your dreams and end your night early. :(
