re: Poker & Is this a bad beat?
I would say a nice call but a bad deal on cards. Look at it that you put him close to the right hand, I would have put him on AK or AQ or AJ. Two of the three you have covered and the other one is more than likely a split pot. He just happened to pull that miracle river card that everyone loves to sing about when it goes there way.
You did not fail as much as the poker gods were laughing at you tonight. Tomorrow you will see the same guy be the second one out.
P.S. My 200th post, yipee
