When playing a tournment at the Wild
Goose Casino I was involved in an
interesting bad beat. Little John and I
tangled in a hand.
I was dealt pocket kings and he was dealt
pocket queens. I made a modest bet of
500 and he went all in for 1900. I called
and the flop came king, queen, seven.
John stood up and started to put on his
coat. The turn came with the 4th queen,
and I stood up to put on my coat while he
rejoiced. Then came the river with the 4th
king for the bad beat.

Last week while I was in Las Vegas at Caesar's Palace I was
playing in the no-limit cash game. Just like on TV they
actually had stacks of real money sitting on the table.
Anyway....I played for about 2 hours and increased my chips
from $300 to $800! I had 10 minutes left until the tournament
started that I was already signed up for...so I said that I would
play a few more hands.
I got dealt pocket 5's (not great in a NL cash game, but I
called the $5 and then it was raised to $15 pre-flop which I
also called). On the flop came Jd, 5c, 5h...I flopped four of a
kind! I was 3 ahead of the button and the 2 blinds were in as
well as 2 other players. The small blind bet $20, bb folds, I
call, and the person behind me raises to $100.
What the heck is going on? Sb calls and I raise to $200
getting 2 calls. The turn comes a 10d. Small blind bets $200
(there is about $650 in the pot) I raise to $500 and the
player behind me calls and sb folds. I'm imagining he has a
full house (pocket jacks, or pocket tens) or even a big pocket
pair such as queens, kings, or aces. The river comes and it
is Kd. I only have $100 left so I push all in and he instantly
calls....guess what he had, he runer-runnered with nothing a
royal flush! Unbelivable! Worst beat of my life...I lost $800
and he won about $2500 on a one in 10,000 chance of
happening! Needless to say everyone was appauled...they
didn't have a bad beat jackpot there so I quit and went on my
humble way to play in the tournament.
Players like that are frustrating, but I love them because they
are willing to risk everything on a longshot, almost always I
would be the one taking his money. Long live RIVER RATS!
