Anyone Wanna Hear A Bad Beat Story?

Ya just can't believe some peoples play. It's as if they are completely unaware of what the game entails. I hate bad-beat stories but this is funny (or not)
This has gotta be in my top 5 i reckon......
The table is full of habitual limping/calling donks. Villain UTG is a complete muppet!

$3/$6 6 max with stacks $400-900 6 sat.
Villain has $400 and i have $400
limp, i raise to $24 with A5s, fold, fold, fold, BB calls, Limper calls.
Flop AJ5 rainbow
Check, check, I bet $50, fold, villain raises to $150 i call. (99% sure i'm way ahead ere.)
Turn AJ5(9)
Villain bets $150, i call
River AJ59(7)
Villain shoves rest in (about $80), I call
Villain shows 86o and wins a $800+ pot!
Gotta laugh innit!
I finish the day £31 up after an 8hr+ grind :S

I dont think we can castigate the guy as a complete nobsucking retard on the basis of that one hand. Lets see. Sure, on the flop he raised with thin air, trying to take a stab at the pot to see if you are scared of the A. Nothing wrong with that with the right table image. On the turn he picks up a draw and it becomes a semi-bluff. On the river he hits so the money naturally goes in.

Yes you got unlucky, but his play was nowhere near the worst I've ever seen.

Ok, so you are getting pwned a tad lately.Your erratic form suggests you need to impose a stop loss limit,say 2 or 3 buyins.If you don't arrest the slide you will be lining up in the dole cue,or worse, serving up burgers to fatties in McDonalds.LOL

James?
So your saying calling a 6x preflop raise with 86o....... then checkraising the original raiser on a completely missed flop (with an A & J on flop) with air....... then shoving all but $80 into a pot where the original raiser isn't likely folding, with a gutshot, isn't castigateable?
Yes there's always an argument for aggression but a) this dumbfuck aint that bright.... and b) theres a time and a place for trying a bluff...... this wasn't it lol.
