What is a bad beat (badbeat)?
In poker, Texas Hold’em, Stud, or any other variation, a badbeat is a scenario where the favorite hand when two or more players go all in doesn’t win at the end. Bad beats are the most frustrating experience for many poker players and its not strange to see a player flip out
Managing to keep calm after a stinging loss will be one of the harder trials that any poker player has to face, but there are some badbeats you should really get used to or you’ll go crazy before you start seeing money.
If you put all your money in with AA, KK, AK, QQ before the flop and lose, just let it go. The money will come back to you another way.
The most important advice we can give you is to never to talk (or even think) about badbeats, instead use your time to talk about an interesting scenario that you can learn from. Dont believe us? Ask George Danzer
