Losing a hand in poker
that you from
are very probable to win. Often (or so it will seem) to a worse player, who called you bet when the odds
were clearly against
Novices often confuse a bad call with a call that will probably lose, but still has the pot odds
on its side. They will then
moan and moan about getting bad beaten when
in fact they were only slightly unlucky. A bad beat is in fact when
someone makes an incorrect move
against you, and gets extremely lucky.
Good player: My pocket kings got called with Q9 when flop was K-9-A and I went all in. Turn
was a 9. River came the last
to runner-runner nines. Well, that´s
Bad player: I had pocket nines and went all in for 2 dollars. This rich guy called me with AKs and caught
an ace. Now that´s
a bad beat! I hate this game!
