Mrs. SoxLover's Fun with Hiltons

I'm not sure if I mentioned it, but my wife is a budding poker player herself. Sunday night while I was asleep she experienced a most brutal bad beat with Hilton Sisters leaving her out 166th in a 1350+ player 3$ tourney on stars (31 short of the cash). She tried to recall the hand but probably was too scarred to get it just right, so I pulled up the history for her:

Mrs. SoxLover: "I'll never look at queens the same way again."


In my less interesting saga, polar opposites in two 50+5 9 player sit and goes on Stars this evening. First one, I was out in hand #1 bluffing into a rivered full house.

Second tourney lasted 49 hands down to the bubble, and then in what I think was a personal record, a grueling 87 hands 4-handed, with both the chip lead and the short stack rotating at least once through each player. Three handed was another 24 hands. Heads up only lasted 2 hands with my short stack doubling up once against a massive leader (11.5k to 2k) but not twice when my K6o fell to 89o rivering a straight. Good, tight players on that table.
