Yesterday, near the end of my session, I raised with a suited connector and flopped a straight.
I could not believe my good luck when I was check-raised. I put in a min-raise and then something funny happened ... my Full Tilt program crashed.
So I waited patiently for it to reload, thinking that I'd have enough time with disconnect time to get back into the hand.
The program only started up on the second try and when the tables loaded up, I could tell that my hand was nowhere to be seen.
An irritation, to be sure, but something I thought was minor. It just doesn't happen very often on Full Tilt.
But there must have been residual angst as I proceeded to donk off a buy-in with second pair versus top pair at another table that had dropped to three people as the result of the poor Full Tilt software.
Next time I'll know that when something out of the blue happens, to give it -- and myself -- time to get back to full working order.
