Been a while since the last “Bad Beats” discussion, so I thought I’d start an new one—inspired by yesterday’s action (May 7, 2021), in which I suffered three bad beats on the first hand I played in three successive 100K RP tournaments. This was the third of them. It made me swear off poker permanently—for about eight hours.
Follow the misery: hand 736045783.
I was dealt the Qc 4c. Called a bet of 30.
The flop came 10c, 6c, 2h
I checked. One player bet 195; I called, all others folded. (Maybe a questionable call on my part, but it paid off! And there was much rejoicing. Temporarily.)
4th St. was the K of clubs. I checked, and the bettor put me all in. He showed the 9-7 of clubs, and I started counting my money.
5th St. was the 8 of clubs.
I think I managed a “gh, gl” before slinking away.
