re: Poker & Bad luck/Bad beat, what does it all come down to?
Thank you for contacting PokerStars
A cooler can be two things:
1. A person who brings bad luck.
e.g "I was up three buy-ins until the cooler sat down, from then on I
couldn't win a hand."
2. A hand in which both players have extremely powerful holdings. Usually
both will assume they are in front.
e.g "I was dealt Ah Ac and I flopped four a kind Aces, the board was Ad Kd
As. I bet and he called. The turn was the Td and I bet and he went all-in.
He had Qd Jd and won with a Royal Flush. What a cooler!"
If you have any questions regarding this, or any other matter, please do
not hesitate to contact us.
Best of luck at the tables, and thank you for choosing PokerStars!
