Most Frustrating Loss?

6 replies • Last post

Hey all, I was playing at my usual spot DraftKings last week, taking part in some live dealer blackjack. I ended up having a decent run, but it ended when I was served up three straight draws or losses, where I'd doubled down against dealer bust cards with an 6/4, 5/5, and 7/4, only to see the dealer hit and get 21 twice and 20 once. At this point, I decided to cut bait and just pull out $20 in the black.

This led me to think about bad beats and I'm curious to know what you have listed as some bad beats. Let me know and make me feel better.

HiLo can be a bitch. I'm usually going after high multipliers with low bets. Every A I'll hit Lower, and try to get 3 in a row which is about 140+ multiplier. Same for K, just going for a high. The most frustrating is, when I hit High on 3rd As and it turns out it's forth A that was waiting in a row. Potential multi 1800+ I think. Never actually manage to get to this high multi on Hilo by hitting 3 Lower on A card as starrting.

That loss on that 4th card, doesn't matter what was the profit amount, drives me nuts it's the thing I'm chasing and and when it finally comes, I don't actually have nuts to hit another, .

Oh man that reminds me - I used to love the Net Entertainment Hi-Lo Switch game. You had 3 cards and could pick high or low on any one of them. Or if they were all bad you had a limited number of switches you could use for a redeal. It sounds like you couldn't lose but let me assure you that you could. 😂

Ha! I can't play a good poker game period. I just just don't have the patience to do it.
