It's say it's more of a cooler than a bad beat. Everyone's going broke with two pairs on that flop.
It's technically a bad beat for villain, because he never put money in the pot with the worst hand (he was ahead pre-flop, and only lost on the river), but it's not as if you had complete air on the flop, and hit a runner-runner or something like that. Then again, losing to a 2-outer is pretty brutal, as villain was way ahead on the flop.

He's probably thinking "I am in the small blind and I was forced to put nearly all my stack in. I only have 301 chips left, which is less than an ante. I should therefore be putting it in with any two napkins at this point, as I have a small chance of quadrupling up".

Either way, 16 out of 10,000 people for me is pretty good.

Hi BrendanA2013!

It's not a bad beat because AJ was never ahead in the hand. AQ was always ahead. It's definitely a cooler though.
