The challenge takes a beat......

Not really a bad beat as I was behind all the way once the flop came, but time out is needed to chill. I have KK and blinds are 50/100, I have average chips. It is raised 500 UTG. Everybody folds to me in the big blind and I flat call. The flop comes QQ2 and I put out a tester 400 bet out. It was called and the next card was the 7 of diamonds. This made two diamonds on the board and I was sure now he had a Queen. This time he bet 400, I called thinking if a diamond came I could take him off at the end. The River was the King of diamonds, giving me Kings full of Queens and now I think I have him beat I go All in. He calls straight away and then I am dismayed to see the money slide over to him! He had QQ, It had to happen sometime, but this is the biggest hand I have lost with so far! I am sure there are many of you out there who have had bigger hands beaten but it is still a sickener!

Luckily for the challenge I had just come second in the previous Sit and go so we are back to level for the day.
