      would i be correct in thinking this is a premier league game? if so why are you playing that hand from that position?? also since you did play that hand why aren't you shipping the flop?? ok you flopped the nuts but how many times do you see the flopped nuts become 2nd best by river? peronally i see it alot. for instance that hand you were pricing in hands like 10J, JQ, any two diamonds......

      anyways good luck

        As you can see it was my first hand played. I was folding everything and just decided to limp in with this. The table was very passive so I thought I would just limp this one and see where it went and yes that was a huge mistake. Nonetheless it was the worst beat Ive ever had or seen in any game Ive played.

        Cheers

              This same thing happened to me 2 days ago.

              I had 8h,7h,

              flop fell Jh,9h,10h,

              of course my opponent had Kh,Qh,

              I lost 200 bb stack to that.

                    Correct me if I'm wrong here but whether this is Premier or Open League aren't the Level I blinds 20/40? And you're on your opening stack no less. Had you even taken blinds yet,or did you get a walk on your BB and steal on your SB? But wait,you say you hadn't played a hand so you must not have seen the blinds hit you yet. So in other words this is the FIFTH hand of the tournament and you say here that you hadn't played a hand yet. What that's some Zen-like patience to you?

                    Look you may have taken a bad turn of the cards on the river a little bit (ANY diamond except the five is beating you,also any 10) but he/she had NINE outs. The odds when the money went in was you 79.55%,villain 20.45%. Now is that a loose/bad call by the villain here? Meh, yeah it's not great.

                    But...

                    You chose to open limp low suited connectors OOP in Level I in a game that is entirely about ladder climbing. That's some pretty horrendous EV right there. Then when you hit a dream flop you,as yahooza astutely pointed out,priced the villain's hand in with your small bet off the flop. That sets up the turn--for you a blank,for the villain a hit of sorts. He has many reasons to believe he may be ahead off this turn card and a lot of mediocre or worse players have a very hard time coming off a hand like that when shoved on. That's part of why they're mediocre to worse players. I've seen much,much worse calls made and paid,so has everyone else.

                    Finally losing with a straight flush is a galling result to be sure but would you feel better if any other diamond (save the 5) had hit for a more "standard" beat? Or one of the other 10's? What's the difference really?

                    Bottom line if losing when 80% on the river is the WORST beat you've ever taken here then I submit that you're on the biggest streak of "run good" of anyone on the site. EVERY player I know gets worse than that on a daily basis. Several times.

                        I totally agree. I didnt see anything worng with my opponents play at all and have no problems with it. I know the odds and how many outs he had. I wasnt upset about any of that. I posted it because I have never lost a hand holding a str8 flush and many people have never seen it either. The guys on the table were remarking about how they had never seen it before. We were all talking about it being a badbeat jackpot on a badbeat jackpot site.

                        Believe me when I say, I have no doubt about my preflop call getting me into the trouble in the first place. As for me being able to push him off his draw with a decent bet on the flop.....well....I rarely see that ever happen. These guys flop a flush draw theres nothing getting them off it unless the river spoils it for them and even then half the time they try bluffing it if they miss. On the other hand, this was a pretty passive table so who knows, he may have folded.

                        Also Im not talking about the percentages being my worst beat tbut the hand itself. Its not everyday you see a str8 flush beat. Infact, Ive been playing poker for over 30 years and holdem for 11 years and Ive never seen in in any game Ive been in. So that should explain why the shock and aw of it. Its not the percentages, odds, outs, etc, but the hands itself.

                        Cheers.

                          Tbh Dennis this forum is FOR bad beat whining :p I think that's why they put it here

                          Hand was played kinda bad imo but I don't mind the pf limp as it is a good idea to try and accumulate chips early by whatever means you can. Not great but whatever.
