Yeah, it’s another bad beats thread.
This time, no complaining. Only fascination. This is not a place for whining, nor is it a place for review or analysis, other than to give the odds. We’re here to celebrate the getting there at long odds that makes for spectacular, dramatic poker.
I want to see other players’ similar hands. You say they happen all the time, well let’s see it. I want the comfort of knowing I’m not alone.
The idea for this thread is to show the odds at the critical decision point (eg, the point at which someone shoved, or a similar point in the hand where you were pretty sure you were ahead when you decided to act.)
Here, I’m playing AJo, and flop top pair, Jacks, on a pretty dry board, J42, two diamonds. I bet large, and my opponent shoves. I consider I am almost certainly beat – V clearly has two pair or a set, right?
I call anyway, I need to lose the chips. V pops up with TdTc, and I’m ahead of them. Then they run out two more diamonds for a J-high flush, and I double them up.
I’m 86% on the Flop, 75% on the Turn, 0% on the River.
