AK failed me yet again. While I didn't lose this pot, the fact he had no outs to win on the river and only 2 to tie and hit probably qualifies this hand as a bad beat, as it feels like one.

UL, maybe not a bad beat, you didnt have the nuts as there were already 2 3s on the flop.

Good play, but I find 3's always dangerous.

I think you need to be raising more preflop here. Std raise here is 2.5BB +1BB for each limper, which is 7200. If it were me playing it, I'm doing 1 of 2 things. Raise to 7200 and shoving any flop that I hit a part of.... or... shoving preflop here is NOT a bad idea too.

It's not really a bad beat, as you did at least chop the pot, so even though you didn't get all of it, you did win the hand.
