at least you got your chips in when you were ahead.

Meh,you got lucky on the river a little bit Joy but I wouldn't say you laid a bad beat on anyone here.

My first criteria whenever I hear a bad beat story is where did the hand stand odds wise when the betting ended. In an all-in situation like this if you get your chips in when ahead I don't think it's really possible for the opponent to declare they were bad beat no matter what comes to follow (not that the opponent you faced here said that,nor do you say that they did,just a general opinion...). The way I see it is if you put your chips in when behind or in a flip then you pays your money you takes your chances. In order to be beat they had to improve in the first place so maybe they laid as "bad" a beat on you as you laid back on them.

Like in this hand....

Money goes in pre-flop (good shove IMO by the way....)...

Joy: 3s3c 52.41% annma777: AsJd 47.06% Tie: 0.53%

Flop is 4c2d10c...

Joy: 75.66% annma777: 24.34% Tie: >0.01%

Turn is Jc...

Joy: 25% annma777: 75%

So as you can see you were almost identically strong to win the hand with 2 streets yet to come as anna was with one street left after hitting her card. And most important of all you had 11 outs that you were drawing to on the river.

Nice suckout for you but in no way,shape or form was this a bad beat.

Keep the run good going and remember YOUR decisions will always be more important in that regard than any luck...good,bad or indifferent...ever will be.
