So here are the rules

You post your Bad Beat here - and it has to be when you are all in preflop

You pokerstove the actual holdings of all players involved.

The player with the highest preflop equity who gets bad beat wins.

I was just discussing this hand, which is my opening entry, in live training railing PSOSOP



Pokerstove gives

84.623% equity





Can you lose with better!!

Technically correct - but I was as all-in as I could get - given I had the 2 opponents also in the hand covered.

So perhaps I should specify the hand involved has to have all players involved other than the largest stack all-in preflop.

Or to put it another way - any hands with post-flop action are discounted.

Hi Ed,

Since tightening up my opening range I've lost every tournament. I better start loosening up again.


One of my loses today. Equity 64.645% against 17.279% and 18.076%.

Hi Five

(do you see what I did there!)

It's not pretty I agree - but 64.645% - you can do better than that! - its a standard beat imo!

We are looking for 85% to 90% equity down the tubes here!

So - bad luck all

You won't find anybody here more pedantic than me - so I really appreciated the comment!

And if you have to get bad beat I always prefer it to be a totally incredible bad beat - most bad beats are not really that bad - 60/40 - 70/30 - 75/25 still only 3:1 I want to see an 87%13% favourite lose - then I will be impressed...

I have been trying random hands versus AA in pokerstove and havent got over 86% yet

How about lowest equity win? This is what I did to someone else here.

Me 3.467% against 10.109% and 86.424%.

Nearly your target 87%.

I remember seeing you post that - and thinking what a lucky bee you were there...

percentages all good too - opponents had massive equity!

BUT

YOU WON THE HAND - DOH!!! So no good here...now if the opp posted...

91.716% is the new leader then - but that looks pretty standard to me - four flush cards on the board to an opps suit we don't hold is a harsh but regular beat imo...

Any higher than 91.716% out there?

The winner will be the first person who goes through their hand histories and finds they were beaten with AA by an A with a 6,7,8,or 9 kicker the same suit as one of their aces. 93.5% preflop equity down the drain.

If you get it in with AA vs KK and KK, you'll have 96,5% chance of winning
I think this is the worst bad beat possible.

Btw, i had a hand where i got AA in preflop vs AA and lost. Pokerstove gives me 50,0000% equity, but only 2,17% chance of losing. Should i post it or not? (couldnt find the hand replayer on the new site)
