biddled

;
This verb tends to be used only the past passive voice, and means to get terrible luck in a situation where all the circumstances are favorable toward you. The term’s root, Biddle, is the last name of one of my friends. He is a very good poker player, and still manages to have terrible luck when his hand is favorable statistically from the beginning of a round. The suffix is a past passive verbal suffix. During the same evening of poker in which the game Czechoslovakian Hold ‘Em5 was invented, this friend was having particularly bad luck with his cards. Then, one of the other players had a very good starting hand and was beaten on the 5th community card by a much weaker starting hand, and lost a lot of money on it. The dealer at the time commented to the loser that he had just been Biddled, and the word stuck and is used at least once now every time this group plays poker together.
 
I can’t believe a 3rd two fell on the river…twos should never beat aces. Man, you just got Biddled.
