How I lost the MATH

According to any standard poker calculator the pot odds are 7:1 against an offsuit 4 gapper beating an overpair.

Full Tilt Poker Game #3869091274: Mondays at the Hoy (28382709), Table 3 - 500/1000 Ante 125 - No Limit Hold'em - 0:38:25 ET - 2007/10/16
Seat 5: bayne_s (35,994)
Seat 6: columbo (30,255)
Seat 7: GCox25 (14,751)
bayne_s antes 125
columbo antes 125
GCox25 antes 125
GCox25 posts the small blind of 500
bayne_s posts the big blind of 1,000
The button is in seat #6
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to bayne_s [Qh Qs]
columbo raises to 2,000
GCox25 raises to 7,375
bayne_s raises to 12,750
columbo folds
GCox25 raises to 14,626, and is all in
Getting 3:1 on money at what you have to expect is 7:1 shot
"Plays it like Aces" Nice except you can show me Aces face up and I have to call getting 12:1 on money.
bayne_s calls 1,876
GCox25 shows [2s 7d]
bayne_s shows [Qh Qs]
*** FLOP *** [Tc 7s Kh]
columbo: lol

You went head to head against the Hammer and the JackAce. You got what you deserved.

Sorry bout your luck.
I hope me cheering for you didn't put some kind of weird curse on you?! Naw, that can't possibly be true.

awww fuck the Buddy Doooosh curse! Dooomed! That is a strange set of hands for Gary maybe we all have been giving him too much credit for being tight and he has just been outplaying us..

Oh hell no. I would have been out a laptop if that had happened to me with the Hammer against the over pair. Unreal.

Sheeyat! THAT'S why I haven't had a crack at the Hoy yet. They're not bad beats. They're truly sick.
