      You won't get punished, but bad beat stories are so common that most experienced poker players don't want to hear them. They've had enough of their own.

      I'm not hugely experienced but have lots of bad beat stories. I regard them as just part of poker and don't think too much about them after hand review has established that I played the hand right and just suffered variance.

      good one,i must agree i guess even if i play poker just for few months but im really active so.. i had a bad beat alot of times aswell.. just now i got eliminated on PS in a freeroll german tourney Four for Free which has just like 200Euro prize pool, i had K:club: K:diamond: on BB, guy on UTG raised to 21k
      (he had 6:diamond: 6:heart:) blinds were 1500/3000 Ante 300, so i reraised him to my all in (22886) Flop arrived with K:heart: 4:heart: 5:spade: The turn : 6:club: and the river : 6:spade:

      So the river destroyed me "nicely" damn :p

      If you've played more than about 10 hands of poker the odds are that you have suffered a bad beat. For those of you who haven't a bad beat is basically when your good hand loses to some garbage. Bad Beat stories are a staple of poker literature/conversation. Nobody particularly to some garbage. From here EDITED BY IngridN you may get more information on bad beats.

      Are you sure that your draw failing to come in is a bad beat?

      My definition of a bad beat is different from most people's. The place I play live LHE has a bad beat jackpot in which the losing hand must be at least JJJ88. To my own thoughts only losing with an Aces-full boat counts as a truly bad beat.

      I don't know about you, but he was trolling. It's not bad beat at all. KK allin preflop loss against lower pocket pair is not bad beat too(if not main event final table for deep stacks), it's about 80% to 20% and it doesn't matter how you lose postflop, against flush, set, straight, or quads. You have to lose those sometimes.

      Bad beat is QJ hand cards, QJK river and being called down to the river even when you raise 65 - 70% post flop, and post turn....and a T hits the river. You've been sat there 2 hours waiting for a decent hand (when holding AA, KK everybody folds your raise) to compete with.

      Those down swings are hard going.

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.10(BB) Replayer
      SB ($4.88)
      Hero ($10.32)
      UTG ($28.42)
      UTG+1 ($7.35)
      CO ($24.26)
      BTN ($7.23)

      Dealt to Hero 9:club: 9:diamond:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.50, CO calls $0.50, fold, SB calls $0.45, Hero calls $0.40

      FLOP ($2) J:heart: 9:spade: 6:spade:

      SB checks, Hero checks, UTG+1 bets $2, CO folds, SB calls $2, Hero raises to $9.82 (AI), UTG+1 calls $4.85 (AI), SB calls $2.38 (AI)

      TURN ($20.08) J:heart: 9:spade: 6:spade: J:spade:

      RIVER ($20.08) J:heart: 9:spade: 6:spade: J:spade: J:diamond:

      UTG+1 shows K:club: J:club:
      (Pre 34%, Flop 2.8%, Turn 16.7%)

      SB shows A:spade: T:spade:
      (Pre 36%, Flop 28.9%, Turn 0.0%)

      Hero shows 9:club: 9:diamond:
      (Pre 30%, Flop 68.3%, Turn 83.3%)

      UTG+1 wins $19.08

      If the guy with flushdraw didn't call, it would have been bad beat.

      Now it is bad beat for us both as 3% hand won.

      Pretty loose call by both opponents. Did you end up winning your money back from both of them?

      I don't remember, it was long ago. They were very short, so it's not that loose, they were pot comited I gues. I beleive I did get my money back + some more from one of those guys.

      If you post a thread or post about how unlucky you are and how much bad beats you've had and are posting hands. or like i had KK preflop he had J7 and makes straight on fop.


      Then you've seen NOTHING yet.
