Had my first losing session of 2013 a little over a week ago. Played my current brand of tight, safe poker but was mostly done in when I ran into some bad luck with pocket queens two different times.
Playing $1/3 NLHE, I first found ladies in the hole from the small blind and raised it up to $20 after three players had limped. Two ended up calling. The flop came 9♦-8♦-3♠. I led out for $45, and, after the first player folded, the second guy shoved all-in, ~$90 on top. Not knowing the player at all, I called fairly quickly, thinking he could be doing this with a lot of flush and straight draws along with maybe pocket 10s or pocket jacks (though less likely those last two since he limped preflop). Of course, sets were in play, but (a) I hate folding because the guy "might have a set" and (b) many live low-limit players like to slowplay sets. After I called, he rolled over 8-9 for top two pair, which held. Didn't catch whether they were suited or not. God, I hope so.
A little later, I was again dealt pocket queens sitting early. I opened to $15, and a short-stack sitting on the other side of the table pushed his ~$60 total into the pot. Not really enough money to get me off of it, so I put in the chips and desperately hoped not to see kings or aces. Of course, he had the latter and took down the pot.
I also had aces once during this session, while sitting in the small blind, and sat there in a state of unbelieving awe as the entire table folded around to me -- the first and only time not a single person decided to limp the whole night.
"Chop?" the big blind asked, seeing if I was up for the standard friendly cash-game procedure of the two blinds just pulling their chips back if everyone out in front folds.
"Yeah, sure," I said, but you can be damn sure I flipped my cards face up.
That's the first time that's ever happened to me, by the way. I was once dealt a royal flush in a home game playing a variant where you're given five hole cards. And in 2008 I got a piece of a bad-beat jackpot in Wheeling. But until now I'd never been dealt pocket aces in a blind only to have the entire table fold around. So it's a milestone, I guess, but kind of a shitty one.
