i have no excuse for this play; it was moronic. i was trying to represent hitting the king in the SB, thinking surely the BB didn't have a hand. you'd think i might notice the four-to-the-flush possibility being out there.

i finished a few hands later, 217th out of 1184.

ok, so the happier news? damn i am thrilled at this:
