Next person along is big stack and has a huge think. thinking thinking thinking fakes a throw towards the dealer.... thinking thinking thinking...... "I call"

    another guy who was practically all in anyway calls.

    Cards get turned over

    Drunked 10 2
    Big Stack 7 7
    other caller K Q
    Me Q Q

    flop comes 10 5 7
    Turn Q
    River 7
    a roller coaster hand to say the least.... big stack cleans up everything.
    That is definatley unlucky...but if you go all in pre-flop and loose i dont think its a fair claim to a bad beat...ive had rockets busted all in pre-flop many times in the weirdest ways...


    I played at star city once...its has good poker but nowhere near as good as crown

    In Omaha big hands are much more likey as you are dealt 4 starting cards.

    I had quad 9's in a pot limit Omaha tournament only yesterday!

    No this is silly, the whole premise is silly and very badly written. I'm the senior officer here and I've not had a funny line yet so I'm stopping it.

    I think the ansewer is eliminating luck as much as possible by playing chess but as they say the 10th best chess player in the country makes less than the 1000th best poker player

    Worst Bad Beat of All Time

    Has anyone been watching the WSOP on ESPN? in one of the hands 1 guy had pocket aces and went all in after the river after seeing a board something like this Qd Ad 9c As 10d thinking that he was going to win a big pot with 4 aces but the other guy turns over Kd Jd for a royal flush!!!! The commentators said that such a hand had a 1 in 2.6 billion chance of occuring.....now thats what u call a bad beat....

    The board was in fact Ah9cQdTdAd meaning that the KhJh had the straight on the turn (unsure of the betting before the river) ... you can watch it on YouTube: http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=Cdurs0C8mTM#
