Now, THAT was heartbreaking.
Everyone at the table asked the dealer if they could give me a chip or two, just so that I could play one more hand. I turned it down (before the dealer even told them "No"), shook everyone's hand, and went swimming.
I've gotten beaten with a full house before too. Can't remember the actual cards I had though. My mind must be somehow unconsciously blocking the painful memory from itself. It may have been a four-of-a-kind that beat me.
