The true losing hand.

I’ve long believed that the  hand that takes you out isn’t the real killer. It’s the hand before that one.  Yes, your KK might have lost to 78, but if you hadn’t played the Q9 the prior hand and lost half of your stack, you would have survived the inevitable suckout. So when people tell me their bad beat stories, if I’m in a generous mood and we discuss it, I’ll always ask about the earlier hand. Do you agree?
