Your sickest bad beat?

Recommended Posts

Hey all

After seeing @Rocknrolla tweet about him losing with the stars nuts it got me thinking.. 

What has been your sickest bad beat that you can remember? I've got a few I can share... 

Back before I was on gamstop one thing I loved to do was go on Pokerstars and deposit $25 and play on $25 zoom tables and then try get a double up then on to $50 tables rinse and repeat until I bust or get a rather large bankroll - just for a bit of fun really. One session I'd managed to build my stack up to $200 and I'm dealt KK on the button...obviously everyone folds and I raise 3 BB... SB calls... BB reraises to 10BB...I call trying to keep the SB in but he folds. The flop comes K 9 6 rainbow and the BB bets in to me for half pot to which I call turn comes an A (K 9 6 A) and he bets a small amount. At this point I've already put him on AK and I'm rubbing my hands together and getting the vaseline ready... I shove and he snaps me and flips over AK... River A. Tilt mode activated. 

Another time I got a free ticket to Powerfest on party poker a few years back and it was a 2 day event... can't remember the buy in but the prize pool was massive. I made it to day 2 as one of the chip leaders and we was almost at the bubble on day 2 when I'm dealt 44 on the BB.. UTG1(same size stack as me) bets out and gets a call from UTG+1 and myself.. flop comes A 10 4 and UTG1 bets, utg+1 folds and I reraise and he calls turn comes 6 (A 10 4 2) and I bet around 75% of the pot and he calls river comes 10 and at this point the pot is huge and I don't have much behind so I shove and he snaps with A10... Bubbled it when I was almost guaranteed to make the cash.. felt a bit sick after that one. 

Last one was a few years back when I made the final table of the $3.30 bounty hunter and down to the last 6 with everyone having massive bounties and the Blinds are now at the stage where it's shove or fold  and I'm on the button and it folds round to me I look down at pocket Jack's and I rip it in.. SB folds and BB (chip leader he has me covered 2 to 1) tanks for a long time then calls with 5/3os. Flop comes A 4 J... Turn 10 river 2. I go out in 6th and questioning how he could call 50% of his stack with such a hand. I was rather new at the time and didnt realise that some people will call with any 2 for a big bounty and seeing as mine was the biggest in the tournament I can't really blame him. Still made me sick to my stomach as this was back in the days of the poker rush when you could make a small fortune from MTT micro stakes tournaments. Nowadays there just isn't as many people playing so the pay outs ain't anything near what they used to be. 

So that's my 3 most brutal bad beats, feel free to share yours as I actually do love a good bad beat story haha.

Mine was getting beat with a straight flush, obviously on pokerstars.

Was playing limit at the time so could have been worse, but was so obviously set up

I onced  shoved on a guy with 22 after he raised and he called with Aces  flop came down A high   and ran  out with 4 cards of a flush and I won with one of my 2s filling the flush lol.

The best one I remember was playing a single table tournament on Stars and got dealt something like 89 suited  on the first or second hand in latish position  I think blinds were 10/20.   A lot of people called and it gets round to small blind who min raises to 40  and everybody calls and I think that was crazy as he is not isolating anybody and probably has Aces.   Anyway the flop comes down something like A 6 3 rainbow and he bets out 40 into a pot of say 320.   Everybody folds and it comes to me and I thought I know his hand and  I will call anyway to see what happens as it is Stars after all  and even if I hit trips I will fold.  Turn comes a 10  and he bets 40 again so I called  and the river came a 7 to fill the straight lol and he bets out 40 again   and I shove hoping he will think I have Ax and have hit two pair.   He called with his set of Aces of course  and his chips were sent over to me .   Chat was funny for a few seconds after that one🤣

I had similar were I flopped a straight flush and the board paired on the turn and other guy had hit quads and I am praying that he has a flush on the flop so I might make something from it

When I was dealing in my local club I was renowned for handing out bad beats  two I remember are a guy making a move with the old 72 off  and he got it all in against a guy who had aces and I dealt the flop of 772 .   Another one was a two guys getting it in with I think QQ  V Ax      Flop was Q33 turn 3 and River 3  Now that is what I call a bad beat

I think it was in a tourny.   Best Cash game hand I had was in a six handed cash game I think at 2/4  and I got JJ in small blind,   Button raised and I knew him to be a bit of a tight Grinder  so i only called and then Big Blind called as well   Flop came down  J 10 x of spades   I checked  big blind checks and button bets out.   I flatted as I knew him to be tight as I said and then the big blind raises anyway  I decided to gamble and pray for a house.  We ended up with a three way all in for a big pot and the turn came a 10 to give me a house  and river blanked.   Button had AK spades and the big blind had J 10

Love it guys! Remind me to never let you deal if we ever play together Phil 😂😂

When I was first starting out I made a call I doubt I could find nowadays but back then my ignorance was bliss. 

Im dealt KQs (clubs) and UTG bets out I call on the SB and the BB folds flop comes 9H KH QH he bets 80% pot and I call turn brings the JH he checks and I check and the river 2C and he jams and I snap him. He flips over KJs (diamonds) and I take a massive chip lead while he's left cursing me in spectator chat asking how I could possibly make that call... Got called a idiot, got called a fool, got called a donkey but needless to say I had the last laugh.

It always happens on Riverstars... Only site I've played on where I've witnessed quads happen 3 hands on the bounce.

Ah tourney, shame!. My best was in a 5/10 cash game. Long time ago now. Had been playing for hours and it was early hours. After the flop only me and one other left in. He raised, I had so many outs so I just flat called. I checked and he raised big. I couldn't fold with so many outs so just called and hit my out. He went all in, called and won about £2800

Not a bad beat as such but not nice....

Rolla wants to see if his money transfer is working as he needs to send a few dollars to someone to play, he sends me 10 bucks i think, maybe 7, tiny amount anyway and yes it worked!

So anyway later on I'm like oh yeah why dont I play that few quid rolla left on stars, so I log in then change my mind and go straight to blackjack, get it up to 30 bucks and go and play a 30 buck spin and go, I win of course (stupid russians!) and I now have 60 bucks. Off to live roulette I go and within a few spins I'm at 1000 and some dollars change.

I think you know the rest.... :feelscryman:

EDIT: Just to add I vaguely remember going on a chase later that night and losing a good £700 of my own money on stars and hitting my deposit limit for the week of a 1000 bucks!

Two hands stick in my mind. Had 9 8 flop 9 9 8 and lost to a straight flush on 888. Had 10 6 on a shitty spin and go. Flop 10 6 6 ended up all in playing against pocket 10's. On the other side a few weeks ago went all in with ace jack against AA last 4 cards all hearts. I had the jack of hearts. Neither player had the ace of hearts.

That was the generally the highest although I did try 10/20 cash games, very scary.

Distant memory now, but ended up in a lot of debt so definitely not recommended

We've all had horror stories. I remember signing the reverse of my pay cheque to a mate at the casino.

So basically, I'd lost my months wages before I'd even paid it into my account

I can imagine mate! The most I've had at a table is $500 which I worked up from $25 but just like a catapillar transforms into a beautiful butterfly with that much on the table I transformed into the worlds biggest nit.

You tend to get picked off fairly easily when you start playing out of your comfort zone
