remember, you can't get bad beat if you don't get your chips in with the best hand.

This first one, however, does NOT qualify for one. Yes, you had the best hand for part of the hand, but when your last 650 went in... you were behind. If your chips don't go in when you're ahead, it's not a bad beat.

Raise the flop, shove the turn here. Slowplaying bottom set will get you into trouble more often than you think.

Thanks for the clarification and advice JWK24.

before you act there is $280 in the pot that means you bet 280+ 80+80 or 420 at least to reduce field
before the 33 acts there is $760 in the pot thats enough to make it worthwhile for 33 to steal all the dead money out there
in other words 3 guys limp raise with $200
you should know by now players will easily call your $200 bet
that vastly improves pot odds for anyone acting afterwards
to me a bad beat exists when you play hand correctly
this hand you played incorrectly
you were inviting the 33 to do what he did
had you gone all in instead of betting $200 then 33 would have had to bet all in after investing only $80 to two players who went all in
you and the KK
but with 3 or 4 players limping out $200 each it means its an easy all in for 33
tougher all in for 33 if AA + KK went all in and others folded
see the difference ?

both AA and KK were greedy and wanted others to enter the pot
which led to both KK and AA losing

when you had 66 and flop was 99 6 you did same thing you invited others to enter pot
you had a flopped boat and your concern would be that some one had a 9X and would fill up by river
instead you checked to invite others to invest
once players invest they never let go allowing them to out draw you
your bets should be designed to get value and to stop others from drawing out on you
redesign the way and the reasons you bet and you may improve your winnings

its ok to lose correctly\
it sucks to lose by incorrect play

my idea is to maximize and by betting 420 it will drive the 33 out and will be HU with KK, i know AA will have lesser equity with 3 way pot but it has a +EV? right?

Is it the right idea to conceal your hand and let them put their chips in the middle if you know your ahead?
