  • Is this a bad beat?

    This donk did this to me to this with junk hands. I was having a shocking tourney and somehow scraped past the first points bubble, and with my first pocket pair (88) of the tourney (on the 63rd hand) I raised, he shoved with Q4, I called and he did not improve, getting my stack up to over 5K.

    This is absolutely a bad beat (and a really bad steal attempt by the opponent).

    You were a very large favorite when the chips went in, were an even larger favorite after the flop and were extremely unlucky on the turn/river.

    Calling a shove with AQ here, especially if you have a history that the opp will shove light to try and steal is the correct play.

      Thanks for the reply, and thanks for moving it to the correct forum, I noticed you'd had a re-arranging and couldn't find it. Now I know where it is.

        there should be a link for a day in the old forum (linking to the new one).

        Keep making the correct plays and you'll do fine playing. You will get unlucky beats, but remember one thing...... you won't ever get a bad beat, if you didn't make the correct play in the first place.
