To know if its really a bad beat, we need to know a few things:

1. His chip stack
2. Your chip stack
3. Positions
4. Was their a preflop raise?

Was it a bad beat? Kind of. Not in the traditional sense that he hit a 1 outer, he had me beat clean off the flop.

My stack was 160,000 his was 170,000. I was in first position and tripled the big blind. He called. So...he called a 20-30k raise with 3 6 off, in middle postion (not that should matter with those rags). After the flop, I was toast.

Final hand: I had KJ hearts, my opponent has what turns out to be 3 6 offsuit :-t . He flops the nut straight. I flop 2 hearts. He bets small, I call. Turn comes K of clubs. Now I have top pair and heart draw. He goes all in, I call, I lose. Devestating. He had NO business being in the hand after being subjected to a preflop raise.

I was up to 242,000 at my peak, that hand dropped me from 160,000 to 0 in about 30 seconds. What a waste of time! :-P


This is also pertinent information, for your reading ease and enjoyment, Nomar. :-D

Since this was play money, I'd say he was a horrible player and just got lucky. If this was any other tourney, I'd say he was setting up to bluff the flop, but when he hit it, decided slow play it. I've played worse hands before under the right circumstances and against the right player.

Probably. I'm unemployed and have time for everything. :-/ :-b

Right now, the thought of cards makes me sick, but a goodnights sleep will probably put me in the mood for more cards. ;-D
