I wouldn't really call it a bad beat, but I would call it a cooler.

Your bet sizing is a bit large, and there were hands that could have been ahead of you on the flop even though you held bottom set. granted, I am not folding bottom set here very often at all, but you may well have been really badly out flopped.

Both your opponents flopped pretty darn good here too, one with bottom 2 pair and one with top pair and an open end straight flush draw.

I am just as likely to not fold the open end straight flush draw with top pair as I would be your bottom set, so you cannot blame that guy for sticking around.

the guy you gotta question is the one who shipped over you on bottom 2 pair. That is a hand that will be good a lot of the time, but with all broadway cards versus a UTG open raise and c-Bet, it loses a TON of it's strength.

So to be really honest, it was the guy with QT who made the "mistake" by over valuing his holding here and shoving that set you up for a big loss. I would not blame the guy with the top pair and monster draw for stacking off at all (he is actually a race to your set), and it is going to be hard for you to find a fold of bottom set when you did not get RR'ed pre flop at all.

The ONLY way you might have gotten away is if you credit someone here for maybe holding the straight, and see the jam AND the call of the jam as a tiny door way to fold your set...but again, that is a REALLY SMALL doorway to try fitting through...

So this is really just a cooler, and not quite a "bad beat", since the guy who did win had every reason to stick around.

hope it helps.

I'd say it's a cooler too. Really all 3 players had a right to be in the hand and while you were slightly ahead pre flop, you were never an overwhelming favorite (and actually came in last of the 3 in the end). The hand with the most equity on the flop was the eventual winner, with KJ of diamonds.

These types of hands are unfortunately going to happen.
