Default Worst bad beat of all time

Fair Poker, 9 handed, 2 cent 4 cent blinds NL

I'm big blind and dealt ace king clubs! I have about 4 dollars.
I raise to 24 cents, and get 5 callers. Very loose table.

flop is j 8 3 all clubs. I flop the nuts!

I bet 50 cents into the 2 pot, I am estatic to see 3 callers and then an all in raise for about the same size as my stack. I also move all in and everyone else folds.

The other person has also flopped a flush with his queen seven of clubs.

However i lose the hand thanks to a 10 of clubs followed by a nine of clubs to give him a straight flush.

Bad Beats such as the one in your case tend to happen pretty often. Unfortunately, there's not much you could've done there to protect yourself. Moreover playing in low limits leads to a loose table.

Tip: You could use the card icons instead of writing the cards out. It makes the thread more interesting and easy to read.

Yeah man, that's real harsh, it makes all my bad beats seem like pennies compared to that, but then again, it was only for about $5. Some of my bad beats have cost me money in tournaments for over a couple hundred dollars.

that sure was a bad beat. A thing you could do to not loose as much money is to for example buy in 10$ and then you play until you have either 20bucks or 0 bucks in that way you dont loose all the money in one hand

Thats a bad beat!? Wow...

I was playing in a home game of no-limit texas hold'em. The buy in was 20 dollars, and almost everyone at the table were fish. I was down to about 15 dollars after seeing kings busted, but this story isn't about my kings getting busted by a runner on the river.

This story is about how excited I was to see Pocket Rockets in my hand. I immediately went about protecting my hand, because I was not about to let my aces get busted. I was on the button, and I raised 3 dollars. Both the blinds called and everyone else folded. Flop comes, King 9 5 Rainbow, Aces are still best here. So I raise 5 dollars. The small blind folds, and the big blind (calling station), calls. The Turn comes a 3 of hearts, the board is still a rainbow. The three might give the fish an open ended straight draw, but still nothing that bothers me, have to punish him for it. I raise 7 dollars all in, my opponent calls. We flip the cards over, and he has a 3 of clubs and a 4 of diamonds. River comes another 4... I could not believe it. This guy called 8 dollars with a backdoor straight draw. He called 15 dollars with a pair of 3's, and he goes on to spike a 4 on the river for two pair.

Needless to say, I do not see this as a big loss. Though I did have some choice words for him after the hand, I still am happy with the outcome since I know he will play for money with me again and again. Drawing to 5 outs when he has 2 to 1 odds, I will let him make that bet and I will be happy with it... Except the times the LUCKY SOB spikes a card
