Twitch.tv is a live-streaming video platform that primarily focuses on video gaming. Naturally, it captures some wild moments featuring gamers losing their minds.

Twitch streamer Chance "Sodapoppin" Morris brought us our latest meltdown when he played online blackjack Friday on a betting site with live dealers. As 40,000 people watched the stream, Sodapoppin placed a maximum $5,000 bet on his last hand.

Morris drew an ace as his first card, but his second card, a five, gave him either a six or 16. He hit and received a jack, putting him at a hard 16. With the dealer showing a six, Morris declined to hit again. 

The dealer drew a second six, which meant only a face card would save Morris. Unfortunately, the dealer drew a third six, causing Morris to throw off his headphones and go absolutely nuts. He started throwing things and even ran into a wall while dropping F-bombs left and right.
