Logical answer Is no, because you can't predict the future nor can you stop future events.
So asking how do you "avoid bad beats", Is like asking what will happen to your life tomorrow, and since you can't tell what will happen to you tomorrow, why even bother asking such a question In the first place?
I'd also like to ask what do you consider a "bad beat" Ak<AQ? AA<QQ? Set over set?
All of these things are bound to happen eventually (If you play long enough), and they are not "Control-able", yet they are "Avoid-able" given that you "Study" your opponents very well and work on your "Hand reading skills+ranging game".
That being said, that doesn't mean you can "Avoid" that which Is bound to happen, you can only "Minimize" the losses when they do happen, given that you have worked on your "Over all game". Since the game Is about "Knowing your players", you would need to know when to "Fold" and when to "Get It In On the flop". Yet to do this you would need 100% accurate Info, and even than that doesn't mean your "100% to win", It Just means that you made the correct +EV move at the correct time and that this time It didn't work out as you would have hoped for It to work out for you.
I hope I explained things to you as well as possible
