Is this a bad beat?


Just Wondering

I'm trying to be patient and wait for a decent hand, meanwhile getting bullied by high stacks. At last I get pocket aces and end up in three hand action with two other hands. The first to act puts in minimum raise, second calls and I go all in. The other two go all in also. So, I'm up against pocket queens and king 8 unsuited. The flop is 2 3 king. No one has flush possiblity. Next card is a 4. I'm still in good shape. Last card is a queen. Crap! I'm bounced out by three queens.

I find this kind of thing happening to me alot. I know i just started really playing for real. Did I do anything wrong here or is this just the way the cards fall?
