    Well, that sucks. Your father-in-law should have probably bet more than $50 after the flop, though.

    I care about someone else's bad poker beat about as much as I care about someone else's tourney bracket.

    It doesn't fucking matter. The guy had three queens. He's not going anywhere, no matter how much you bet. Every dollar you put in with your nines, you might as well be setting it on fire.

    I know trip nines seem attractive, but you're fucking nuts to put real money in that hand. Anybody with a queen beats you. You're dead in the water.

    He didn't flop three nines, he flopped a full house. Only thing that would've beaten him there is a full house with the queens.

    OK, I misread that. Never mind!

    I've flopped a full house and lost to a better full house on the river and putting a guy all-in. It sucked, but it was not horrific.

    Did you have $400 cash on the table when you did it?

    No, if I had it would have really sucked, but still not been horrific. Just lost my $60 tournament entry fee.
