Bad beat

    I know everyone has their bad beat, but I was witness to perhaps the worst I have seen on Saturday.

    Cash game.

    Guy (seat 1) gets dealt QJ.

    Flop comes 9-Q-J (rainbow)

    Seat 1 bets $30.00....gets a raise to 60.

    1 calls.


    1 bets 60.....raise to 120.

    1 calls again.


    1 bets 100......guy goes all in for his last 140.

    1 calls instantly......shows his Queens full.

    Guy says "nice hand, but not nice enough"


    Quad 9's

    Happened one seat away from me, and I'm damn glad, cause I woulda went bust. No way are you running from Queens full.

    How is playing poker a bad beat? Covering EMU football... that would be a bad beat

    Does that compare with a bad beat by Vanilla Ice?

    Vanilla Ice had a good beat. Only problem was that he stole it from Queen's "Under Pressure"

    I don't play poker much, but saw this one once...
    The board came 10-10-K-K-x (might not have been that exact order, but those were the cards). Guy had pocket 10s, but got raised by the guy he knew had pocket kings. First guy couldn't help but call it. Sure enough, both of them had quads.

    I give it a 6.5 out of 10, Dick. I just can't dance to it.

    Not really that bad of a beat, actually. The other guy made 9s full of Qs on the turn, the same time Seat 1 makes Qs full of 9s. You think he's going to get out of the hand at that point? No way. It's a tough beat, but that's not a bad beat. It wasn't a donk play or anything.

    Take a lesson from the man himself...

    Might not be a donk play, but it's still a bad beat. He rivered the only card that could save him, that's a bad beat. That said, if I have the top full house and I've got a guy raising into me, I'm probably going to push back instead of just calling. Of course, I would have lost a lot more money on that hand because the other guy wasn't going anywhere, but I would have told myself I did all I could.

    I had the Suns + the points in Game 3 vs. San Antonio, and some crooked ref screwed me!

    I laughed on that one. Timely. Well played.

    Good point.....but if you have Queens full, you don't want the guy to go anywhere.....that's why he was just smooth-calling instead of re-raising.

    Catching a one-outer on the river always helps, though.

    From then on, we called the guy with quads "catfish"....."living on the river"
