Tell me your bad poker beats

Postby DK » Mon Aug 14, 2006 11:08 pm

I've had some extremely rough ones to take in the last few weeks, culminated in tonight's game:

1) I have A-10, board comes out 10-3-7. Bet hard, one guy calls. Turn is another 3, bet harder, other guy calls, which makes me think he doesn't have a 3, but maybe a 7 or a 10 (and I'd have the ultimate kicker so I'm good.) River is a 4 or something, and I bet hard again.

Well, he didn't have a 3.
He had pocket J's.

Very next hand - very next hand:

2) Pocket aces. I go all-in. One guy calls with A-10.
He catches a straight on the turn.
And for good measure,
he catches a flush on the river.

End of the night for me. I have nights just as bad as this regularly. Chalk it up to bad karma or something.

So I don't feel so bad about myself, let's relish in the times where we just got our pants handed to us on a silver platter, eh?

Yeah DK, I wouldn't call that first one a bad beat. Did he raise preflop? Can't really call it a bad beat when he had you beat at every stage of the hand. :-°

Dug this one up from my log of bad beats. Happened at Party Poker in a $11 2 table SNG.

** Dealing down cards **
Dealt to River_ACErat [ 7s 7h ]
bgscot folds.
River_ACErat raises [350].
skinsfan1964 folds.
FIZZLESNAP folds.

reason2003 calls [300].

** Dealing Flop ** [ Kh, 9d, 7d ]
reason2003 bets [200].
River_ACErat raises [500].
reason2003 will be using his time bank for this hand.
reason2003 is all-In [2190]
River_ACErat calls [1890].
** Dealing Turn ** [ Ah ]
** Dealing River ** [ 9c ]
River_ACErat shows [ 7s, 7h ] a full house, Sevens full of nines.
reason2003 shows [ 9s, As ] a full house, Nines full of aces.
reason2003 wins 5580 chips from the main pot with a full house, Nines full of aces.

Live neighborhood game.

Smoove, nah, he didn't raise preflop. Someone else did, though, and we both just called it. I suppose the first one isn't really a bad one, but it was bad for me since I was confident I had him beat at every stage and when he turned them over it was just like, "Aw, crap." I mean, I know he had me beat and all, but the part that made it suck was that I had no idea that was coming.

Yeah it was only $11 and that's my limit with SNG's because if it was any more than that I'd be extremely aggravated. :-[

My worst beat went something like this....

I am holding KK in MP and raise it 3X the BB, a player who is new to my table reraises it from the BB and I call.

Flop comes down KK2. He takes the lead, bets out approx 3/4 of the pot. I smooth call. Turn is a 3. He now has about the same amount in his stack that is in the pot, and pushes all in. I insta-call.


I flip over my quad K's, he shows the A5 of diamonds for the nut flush. However, as most of you have already figured out, the 2 was a diamond, the 3 on the turn is a diamond, and that magical 4 of diamonds comes out on the river and gives him a straight flush A2345 for diamonds. Too bad I wasn't holding the K of diamonds in my hand. Perhaps he doesn't make that semi-bluff/cont bet on the flop without a flush draw.

Ouch. Goodbye buy in.

I do what I can. :-b

Amazingly, that is the second time I've lost with quads...the other time was when my 88 lost to 99 on a runner runner at a casino in a 1-3 limit game. At least it was limit. :-b

No bad beat jackpot either. :-[
