We all have stories of "bad beats". What would you define as one? Someone hitting a inside straight draw when you have two pair and push? A one card flush on the river higher than the one you flopped? A one card 4 of a kind when you have a full house? Everyone has a conception of what a "bad beat" is. We are told that we should have comfort in the fact that these people won't last. It is hard to find comfort when you are put out of a tournament that way. Someone that constantly bets the "come" usually doesn't go far; however luck plays a huge part in what happens. Some people don't believe in "luck" having anything to do with it; that just isn't reality. Skill doesn't make your flush hit. Skill doesn't pull the card you need with your open-ended straight. Just something to think about.
