If Drew's mailbag has taught us anything, it's that gambling stories usually end badly. In that spirit, we'd like to hear your worst.

We're launching a new segment called "Bad Beats," where people share their most agonizing gambling moments with readers and commenters who can hopefully make light of their debilitating defeat.

So if you're snake-bitten by a bizarre twist of fate, or simply lose the mortgage to crippling addiction, sending your life spiraling into hell, we want to hear about it.


Think of it like group therapy.

Subject: "Bad Beats." The segment will most likely run on Tuesdays.
