5 outs if I see it right with 2 streets to come, thats about 20%, I wouldn't call that a bad beat really.

For me, a bad beat has to be single digit probabilities from when it goes in.

I know people love to say "that isnt a bad beat" but when its pair over pair, its not so bad.
Try Ace vs King flush or Full House vs Full House.

Its bad luck for sure but you will see this result 1 in 5 times, a bad beat is something like set vs pair and the river improves the pair to a higher set.
