I don't know if I should count it as a bad beat, but this thread just seemed so convenient.

I miss-read my hand on the turn, thought I had a full-house (thought there were two fives on the flop)

That's what happens when you grind 6 hours straight and definitely need a break.

And about half a year ago on PokerListings there was topic about bad beats.
Sickest of all was one (they told) saw Daniel Negreanu. It was on 7Card Stud when two players got all in on 6th street with K-high straight flush vs Q-high straight flush and everyone was just counting their part of \$300,000 bad beat jackpot. But, then the Q-high just drew out to K-high straight flush to split the pot^^

Laughed so much I nearly bought a round! Lol.

Mine was in stud hi.. i started with 3 aces, made aces full and got beat by guy who started with split eights and made runner runner quads...
The second biggest bad beat was when i had Q8 on the big blind, flop came Q88 and got beat by T2.. running tens this time.
Also nice beat was when i had jacks, flop came AJ3 and other guy had queens.. I bet, he raised and i moved allin. Turn was ace and so was the river.

Just some hard stats from last 2 days: QQ beats KK 5 out of 6 times...
So when shoving kings dont be affraid of aces, ladies are more devastating
