    Angry What is the worst bad beat hand you have ever lost in a live game?

    Mine was in a casino in Indiana. 46 entries and i was in 5th place on the last table. went all in on KK and got beat out by a pair of 9's in which a guy caught another on the river.... 1st place got paid $1200 -_-. and i got one place out of pay because of this hand.

    Um.... no he didn't. Or if he did, you had cause to complain to the casino.
    I'm not slurring my words. I'm talking in cursive. I believe the ladies find it to be quite elegant.

    At the local Casino there is a bad beat jackpot, which basically means if you have the "misfortune" of losing with a big enough hand, your table wins a bunch of money. The losing hand keeps 60%, the winning hand gets 20%, and the rest of the table split the remaining 20% in what is known as a table share. There are two forms of jackpot. I don't know their actual names, but let's call them grande and regular. The regular jackpot requires that aces full of tens lose to four of a kind or better. The most common way for this to happen is for AK to run into something like QQ and for three aces to show up on the board. In fact anytime two aces show up on the board the whole table starts murmuring "one more ace" and "one time" and the like. The regular jackpot starts at $20,000 and goes up from their like a progressive slot machine, which means that the "losing" hand gets at $12,000, which is nothing to sneeze at. The grande jackpot works the same way, except it requires that four of kind lose the hand, and the payout is always $100,000. That's $60K to the loser. That's a down payment, or an entire college fund. That's life changing money for most of the people in the casino. The catch for the jackpot is that both hole cards from both players hands must be used to make the qualifying hands. In the regular jackpot example above, if the board ran out AAA98 and someone held TT and the other player A5 there would be no jackpot. The A5 hand is only playing one card. So, on to our story, which is pretty short. The game is live 8/16, and the players in question hold the following hands:

    22
    33
    A5 of diamonds

    The flop is:

    322dd

    That's right. 3s full of 2s, quad deuces, and a gut shot draw at the steel wheel (a five high straight flush). Some betting probably happens, although it's possibly that only the flush draw was willing to put in any action, with the other two players making expert slow plays.

    322dd-4d

    They hit the jackpot! Poor pocket 3s is going to get eviscerated and only a table share for his efforts, but he's really only going to lose like $200 and $20K/7 players is obviously a lot more than that, so it's OK. The quad deuces stands to win $60K. A jackpot already hit on the turn is almost unheard of. But wait for it.....

    322dd-4d-6d

    Catastrophe strikes! The A5 of diamonds still has a straight flush, but the Ace in his hand no longer plays! He has "improved" to a 6-high straight flush, but lost the jackpot. In an 8/16 game the guy with pocket 2s was fading two cards (the fourth 3 would have relegated him to table share, which still would have been almost $3K which would be a fair consolation prize) to win $60K. And he couldn't do it. All he got for his efforts was a grade A, almost unbeatable, bad beat story.

    I was in Lawrenceburg in a WPT event and had KK under the gun had less than ten big blinds with the rest of the table stacked. I jam and get one caller in the big blind with ace ten off suited. He not only hits, but he snaps off two aces on the flop. I was literally the bubble boy. If I would have not caught Pocket Kings, I would have made it to day two.
