Put To The Test

Must. Not. Tell. Bad. Beat. Stories.

La la la la la la.

You're assuming we don't want to hear them. I think you're wrong.

How am I supposed to engage in Schadenfreude if I do not have a decent description of other's misfortunes?

You discuss the discussing of bad beat stories. Instead why don't you post some hands you played and open that up for discussion?

@Wolynski: Thanks for the suggestion. I admit with some chagrin that my eyes generally glaze over when reading blogs with hand histories in them. It's a weakness of mine, I freely confess. It's only very rarely that I experience a hand that I find sufficiently different, compelling, or educational that I can a) remember it in enough detail to convey it accurately and b) tell it in such a way that others will find it equally interesting.

The poker blogging and forum world is full of opportunities for people to share their nuts and bolts strategic advice and experiences. I don't think it's a strong point of mine, for the most part.

I am, however, open to doing this should a sufficiently intriguing hand come along.

I downloaded hand histories from some seriously atrocious beats and thought I'd write about them. Then I managed to retrieve all of the money I lost and somehow they just didn't matter as much. I played it right; they played it wrong; end of story.
