Share your Bad Beats
« on: August 26, 2011, 05:06:30 AM »
Share your bad beats in this thread - name the site if you want to.  I know I'm not the only one getting bad beats.

Here is one to start off:

I have   and I raised 5 x BB.  The player at BB calls and we are the only 2 players in the hand.

The flop is    

BB checks.  I check.  I'm trying to sucker him in to thinking I don't have the ace.  The turn is .  BB checks and I bet the pot.  BB calls.

The river comes:  .  BB bets all in and I call.

He showed his hand which was   .

I was livid when I saw his 9 and to think he called a largish pre-flop raise with 93 off.  What a fish.

I did actually make a remark which you can see below:  LOL



Tell us your bad beats.

Aces cracked at Pokerstars (25c tourney with 45 players)  

I raised 6 times the BB and the "calling station" of course throws his chips in and calls.  After the flop, I just went all in and he called again.  As you can see, he got lucky on the river.  So typical of PS.  

If you look in the picture, you can just see my opponent's "circle" round his seat is red.  That would be because I made some notes on this player.  He is poor poor poor.  Called out of position with Q3 off suit.  I think that when there are calling stations on the table, I definitely need to be more bold with great hands like AA and just go all in from the off.  I would rather just take the blinds than get beaten by a donkey like that.

Blue,don't you just hate that!! I'm not sure if what I had was a bad beat but during the week I played a bounty freeroll at AWH.I have a pair of 3's so I check and the flop is 5 5 3 so I bet the pot...$200.Everyone folds except a player who raises me.I think ok he has trip 5's so I go all-in.he has 5..8 off suit soooo yes he has trips.The turn card is A of diamonds..so far so good and then comes the river...a 8....crap!!LOL   of course.It's maybe not a bad beat but it's close enough for me!!LOL

Hi Rosebud,

He called your all in with trips and you had a full house.  He only had 4 cards that could beat you (1 x 5 and 3 x 8 ). He only had a 10% chance of winning that hand on the river, so yes, it's definitely a bad beat

You were very unlucky.

Ouch i agree that hurts Malika!

My worst bad beat was when i had a pair of twos in my hand and the board flopped a 2 for three of a kind along with an ace. My opponent raised me on the flop and i was certain he had the ace.

Of course i matched his bet but didn't want to scare him off just yet by re-raising. On fourth street another 2 comes out giving me quad twos! I was a sure winner ( i thought) when he bet and i went all in. Turns out he had pocket Aces and was looking at three of a kind while i had four of a kind.

The river sent me down the river with no paddle as the Ace hits the green felt giving him a bigger four of a kind then mine. I was sickkkkkkkkkkkk.........

By the way welcome to the forum too!

I think it has to be the worst bad beat ever.....ever.

I would chuck the computer at the wall I think.  I wouldn't give up the game though.

For once I was the one doing the BEATING!

I was playing in a SNG tourney and the chip leader was smooshing everyone including me on every hand. I was getting nothing and more nothing... watching my already smooshed stack dwindle when I got KK! Finally, something to play so i throw my decimated stack all-in... But of course the chip leader called while everyone else folded and he flipped AA. My heart sank. Well, nothing for it, but to let the hand unfold before us. Flop 9 J Q, no help. Turn another Q, still no help, I'm folding up my tent ready to finish with a whimper... River is a ..............................drum roll please.................10!

After that I was unstoppable and ended in 1st place! Yeeee and Hawwwww!
