Default Re: Poker player’s bad-beat face at the World Series of Poker will break your heart

My worst beat was in an Omaha game. Had quad 8's on the turn, other guy had a boat of 10's over 8's and of course a 10 came on the river. It boils my blood just to think about it.
People assume that time is a strict progression of cause and effect, but actually from a non-linear non-subjective viewpoint it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly timey wimey...stuff.
