    This is very similar to your other question. In this case, the attributes that life has given this person are not good and it is the reason he is having difficulty in life.

    Pinkgreat,

    The boy was 'dealt a bad hand in life'. His father was an alcoholic, his mother was a hooker, his older brother was in prison for murder, and his home did not have indoor plumbing. This unlucky boy has no control over any of these conditions and, like receiving poor cards in a poker game, you could say he has been dealt a bad hand in life.

    Cheers,
