Pocket A's Busted

Playing a SNG last night before the wife came home and I was doing very well. Second in chips with 5 guys left and then, SHE RETURNED. The kiss of death happened as soon as she walked in the door.

This is the exact hand...(Sorry for those who hate hand histories)

Pocket aces were cracked. Three aces were cracked. That makes it rather hard to swallow. Of course with Party Poker, when you are all-in, the action happens so fast that you tend to miss it. All I know is I was feeling good and all the sudden "You finished in 5th position" came on my screen. I couldn't believe it.

Oh well...more games to play I assume.

Ouch... they (Party) need to slow down the all-in action later in the hands... it adds to the drama.

Absolutely. I can't stand how fast the action moves in those situations. Oh well. Don't guess there is much I can do about it huh?
