Check out this showdown …
That was a rough one. The winner would’ve taken the lo already, but that ace of clubs giving the one player quad aces only to hit the other players straight flush wheel was something!
My personal baddest bad beat happened to me years ago when you could play for money online in the U.S. I believe it was a $5 tourney, NLHoldem for sure.
I had pocket aces, other player had pocket 8’s. I can’t recall just how preflop betting went, but I’m certain there was some raising.
Flop came out ace x x. I went all in which was more than the player with snowmen had, he called, we flopped our cards, I WAS smiling, then saw an 8, wasn’t alarmed until the river was also an 8 :(.
I was soon out of the tourney after that.
Riddle me this, In a live game I made a straight flush and received 1/6 of the pot.
Name the game and what happened, and you get a gold star.
The str8 flush hit the board in a hold’em game.
I think that one unlocks the Bad Beat Achievement.
For@ rain STraight Flush dealt to the board in hold 'em and 6 players stayed in the hand to the end? Maybe a 3,4,5,6,7 ?
That is a possibility, but not the answer
Hint, 3 of the cards you posted were on the board, but that is not the answer.
omaha hi/lo, a higher str flush (from above the 3 consecutive board cards as opposed to your str flush from below) took the high and u shared the low with 2 other players
Drats foiled again, that is correct! I had A2 spades, board came 345 spades, other player had 67 spades and two other A2 hands were shown. @morcosborcos wins!
Worst Bad Beat I ever had a front row seat and was collateral damage on.

This one wasn’t a bad beat but it is the coolest hand I ever witnessed. Double Quads
Hand #1037023138 · Replay Poker
That hand was very rare, in my 40 years of playing Omaha, that was the second or third time I made dual quads. The only getting 1/6 of the pot while making a straight flush with my hole cards has only happened once in 40 years
Not a bad beat as such, but a really shtty way of getting thrown out of a high stakes tourney.
The thing about your two examples is instead of going on Tilt, realize you were going to go all-in in both examples anyway.
You made two good calls in both examples, especially the first one.
Howdy @_Rain and want a gold star in Omaha Great game it is
Great reminder for us all @TroubleUnit to remember, even when we think we have the nuts to consider the risk verses reward! and has happened to as well even with a straight flush loosing to a higher one in a tourney. For me that is the Baddest beat one can receive.
man, that’s a tough break! quad aces losing to a straight flush is one for the books.
and your bad beat with pocket aces versus pocket 8’s in that $5 tourney online sounds like a real heartbreaker.
They both were good calls and I would have done the same
First one was definitely a bad beat. The second one you overvalued QQ preflop to the point of not respecting the all in. You were playing a strong opponent, not a fish. It turned into a bad suckout, but you really shouldn’t have been in that position, and had you won, it would’ve been a suckout in your favor.
