Party Poker

The Second Single Table Tournament For The Night, On About The Fourth Hand I Caught A Pair Of Sixes In The Hole And It Came Down, 6h, 8d, 10d, So I Checked Hoping To Lure Some Folks In, The Next Guy Did A Marginal Raise, Another Guy Called And So Did I, Next Card Was A Jd, So Now My Set Of 6's Is Losing To D Flush, Most Likely, So I Checked Again, Next Guy Raises, Third Guy Jumps Out. I'm Thinking Im Beat For Sure, But If A J, 8, 10, Or 6 Comes Down, I've Got It, So I Call And Bam 8s Comes Off, I Figure Im A Lock, With 6's Full Of 8's, So I Check And He Comes Out Firing Again, I'm Thinking He Doesn't Even See Me Coming, So I Raise All In, He Calls Without Blinking, And Throws Down J, 8! Topping My Boat With His Dang Yacht. I Was Pissed, But I'd Do The Same Thing Over Again.

three times in two weeks (twice in two days) playing in satellites to WSOP or WPT I ran into the following: three handed play; one is short stack, i'm in the middle, third is table leader. I draw pocket pair (1st = jacks, 2d = deuces, 3d time = 8's) and call. No raises. Flop gives me a set each time; short stack goes all in with top pair or two pair; i go all in with my set; table leader calls us both with wither a flush draw or a straight draw; the turn helps no one; and the leader makes either his straight of flush on the river. last night was at the final table of WSOP sat and similarly, had wired pair and made set on the flop - first position goes all in and i call; turn helps no one, and river makes his flush - i'm out again (in 5th place).

Was playing 20/40 limit hold'em at the borgota in atlantic city NJ was in the big blind with 3 5 of Spades. As the action went around everyone folded and when it got to the button he raised my big blind, after the small blind folded i called the raise. The flop came A 2 4 all spades i flopped a straight flush or the steel wheel as it is referred to. the button had K J of spades so he flopped the nut flush as well. After reraising each other about 12 times we asked the floorperson if we could skip the bets and raises and just move all in on the hand. He allowed us to put all of our chips into the pot when i showed my hand the other guy was about to cry, but sure enough the turn came the Q of spades and the river the 10 of spades turning my straight flush into the second best hand since he now had a royal flush......Lost about $1500 on that one

The player to my left raises, all fold except one who pushes all (with about double my chips) in i call all in, the player to my left also calls (with about half my chip count).

A More Technical Bad Beat

Not my bad beat, but.....

B&M Tourney, 9 players at our table --

I'm in seat 4 and there's a nice kid in 3. Pre-flop, there are 3 players left:

Seat 3, 7, 8

The flop comes and it's to #7 -

Seat 7 takes about a lifetime to decide what to do. Finally, she goes all-in. #8 thinks about it for a minute, then mucks.

7 flips her cards towards the muck. We'll say they ended up about 18" from her.

#3 says "Dead Hand. It's my pot."

#7 "I didn't know you were in the hand. You were covering up your cards"

#3 "I WAS NOT! Your hand is dead. You mucked."

Dealer calls the floor over, explains the actions not exactly right, and the floor decides that #7's hand is not dead. The kid calls the all-in (he had her covered about 3-1) and loses.

As the next hand is being dealt, the floor person is still close by. The kid calls her over and asks what constitutes a dead hand. The floor says, "Well, if there had been more cards to come, her hand would have been dead."

Of course, the kid goes half-ballistic. He's all-in the next 4 hands, gets a caller once, and wins the hand.

The fifth hand comes and he's all-in again. I go all-in also, and we get one more caller who has us both covered.

The kid: 6-6
Me: A-Ks (hearts)
Villian: A-Jo

The flop come x-J-x turn-x river-x (all black, of course!)

The kid leaves without a word. I wish Ace-Jack-off good luck and leave in 13th, 4 places from the money.......

Quads over Quads

Playing in our local casino tourney, 30mins into the tourney I get pocket 10's. In second position I raise, everyone folds but the small blind. Flop comes 10/A/A. Small blind checks, I think hey I flopped a boat. I bet 1,000, he calls turn is a blank, river is a ten. Wow I have quad 10's. He checks, I bet 3,000 he goes over the top goes all in. Looking at the board he should have a boat hey but I have four of kind. I have the nuts, so I call, I turn over my pocket tens to show four of kind he turns over his pocket aces to show four of kind aces. SICK....

Absolute Poker 5 card draw

5 card draw, $1/$2 Pot Limit, 4 players. Went in with $50 cash. After 4 or 5 hands, I have $53.00 - slow bettors. Get dealt an ACE high Heart Flush - soft raise got the nice reraise of $7 or $8 or so I wanted. I raised back a few more and he comes back again - my whole $53 is now in and I am gitty with delight. Pat and he's pat - figure a straight. Nope, Full House 6s over 3s - nice hand overall but two pat hands in a 4 handed game?!?!? Cheated? Hell no - what would be the advantage of cheating me out of 50 bucks when they make tens of millions on the rakes - c'mon people - get real. If you drop a ten spot down a rain gutter and worry about getting it out, DO NOT PLAY POKER!! You can't afford it. GL all. Have fun.

Ridiculous player

3 players left in the tournament. I'm on big blind $80, player on the button folds, other player limps in. I raise the pot $200 with wired nines. Small blind calls the raise. Flop comes out A 8 4, small blind checks. Knowing that my opponent would bet out on the Ace, I know my 9s are good so I push all in with around $500 in chips. Opponent calls with Q2 offsuit. Turn is dead, river is a Queen. That ended my tournament.

I hold 6c8c in the bb with no preflop raise.

Flop: 4d5c7c

UTG pushes allin, I call early in a 10 person $55 SNG

He flips over a 5d5h. I flip over the nut straight with open ended straight flush draw.

Turn: Jc
River: Jd

He hit runner runner for a full house against my straight.

even though it is odd he hit a runner runner pair to get his full house he also had 8 other outs on the turn to hit a pair or quads. Still a bad beat though.

I Was Attending A No Limit Hold'em Game At The Bally's In Atlantic City. I Had Been There For A While And Had Increased My Stack From 300-Nearly 2000. So, I Started Playing A Little Looser. I Was The Button And Out Of A Table Of Ten Probably About Eight Had Called Up To Me. My Hand Was 10-7 Spades So I Raised The Bet To $100. Following My Bet Only 4 Players Called. The Flop Came, Showing 8,9 And Another Rag, Two Of Which Being Spades. The Table Was Checked Around To Me And I Made A Bet Of $400 Which Was Met By One Caller. On The Turn A Jack Came Out I Pushed All In. Which Was Quickly Called. I Would Like To Add I Was In The 10th Position And He Was in the 1st With His Value Chips Hidden. He Turned Over His Two Cards Exposing A 10 And A Queen And Begain Counting Out The Rest Of His Stacks, Leaving Me With 200. To This Day Memory Of This Hand Makes me Furious!

I was playing a 180 player sng for about 2 hours and 20 minutes. I was the short stack along with one other guy both with just over 5k in chips. We were on the bubble and the other guy is just to my right. I was in the bb with A A. It folds around to the small blind (also short stacked with me) and he pushes me all in. I quickly call he flips A Q suited spades. The flop comes all rags with two spades. The turn Q and the river Q.

10/20 limit ring game. I have AA in late position. Raise to 20 and get reraised by BB, everyone else goes away, I then cap the raise. Flop is AKK. BB bets, I raise, we reraise to cap. Turn is a 2. Same bets happen, raises to cap. River is 2. He bets I call just in case of KK. Nope, he has 22. The odds of that are astronomical. This was bout 2 years ago and needless to say, haven't played there since. The other player would not chat back with me at all. Maybe it wasn't even a player at all, but maybe a program.

Here's mine: It was a live cash game. I was seated left of the dealer. I was first to bet. I had pocket Aces. I raised to $45. The next guy to bet was on the right of the dealer. He called. The guy in seat six raised to All-In - about $280 - so I called, probably too quickly. The guy to the right of the dealer folded, and because he was the last one in the hand before heads-up, he showed his pocket Jacks. So... it was All-In: me and Seat Six. He turns up pocket Kings. The flop came Jack, Jack, Ace. The guy who had folded the Jacks, leaned past the dealer and kept saying "I'm sorry, I'm sorry" to me. At first I didn't realize why; I did not realize he had folded, since he had turned up his Jacks, and I had just lost the bad beat, which was around $6,000. I did win the hand, however.

Not many bad beats described here yet.

I've only seen a couple of "real" bad beats described here, mostly it's lucky hands getting beat by marginal hands. Pocket rockets getting beat by 7-8 off is a bad beat......the bogata Royal flush is BS, no way that happens.....that's 9 out of 13 Spades in play assuming no one else folded any? Riiiiiiight.

Losing to hidden Quads!

Let's see..$120 buy-in...227 players, $22,700 prize pool... final 8 tables with money starting at 32(?) players.

Blinds at 800/1600/300

I'm in late position with about 33K in chips. Another small stack with similar chips stack raises from early position to about 4500 and everyone folds to me and I look down and find 99 in the hole. I consider re-raising but call hoping to flop a set and if not the guy was a bit tight and I thought He had overcards. I could take it from him post flop if undercards come on the flop.

the Flop brings 9-Q-Q. Beautiful! I flopped a boat!

He checks and I check right behind him.

The turn brings the 9!! I have QUADS!

now the board is showing 9-9-Q-Q

And I'm praying he has A-Q, K-Q or Something similar as he is drawing dead excluding the unlikely Q-Q in the hole for him.

He checks again on the turn and I check again trapping.

the river brings crap and its all over from here.

he bets 8000 and I take my time about re-raising him like I got a 9 and I think its good.

I shove after about 2 minutes and I get an insta-call with cards flying at me showing me K-Q for a boat Q's over 9's.

I don't even flinch. I flip my cards over with one 9 covering the other and do a slow slide revealing the other 9 you shoulda heard the explosion at the table. LOL! OH CHIT HE'S GOT QUADS!

I never said "I" lost to quads.
