So I'm playing in an online tournament, 39 people registered.
We are down to six people.
Top five people get paid.
I'm second in chips.
The chip leader makes a standard raise in early position, it folds around to me, and I'm on the button with jacks. I call.
The blinds both fold.
The flop comes AJ3, rainbow board. I'm ecstatic.
He leads out with a bet, I make a minimum raise, and he instantly goes all in. Of course I'm calling, the only hand that beats me is AA.
He flips over AK, and I'm a 96%+ favorite.
The turn is an Ace.....and the river is a King.
What a sickening way to bubble.
