First reason I can live with it.. I goto a 6x up right at the start of the tournament, so this hurt my stack but i am still very strong at 90BB.

Second reason, its a Freeroll and I can handle these beats in a FR, I welcome them there to help me run better in other games.

My plan going in is flop the set or get out, flopped a full house and looking for action for whichever multi-pot monkey has one of the Jacks.. hopefully two of if possible. I could have shoved on the flop since that bet committed him but if he is fish enough to put 1/2 his remaining stack in, im confident it is going in on the turn.

I put him the rest in and I dont see him folding, put him on a jack or any pair really.

He shows the Jack which is fine with me.. Didn't really look at that window as I had another table going, went back and saw my stack cut in half, looked at the replay and saw him river the jack!

From the flop I was 77% favorite
From the turn I was 84% favorite
He had 7 cards to help him, 1 Jack, 3 Queens, 3 Fives.

Now, the result itself doesn't deserve my personal badge of bad-beatness, since you have to have single digit probabilities and this is clearly 14% or so, but the sheer fact it was Quad Jacks that did it, the 2% card that helped him really burned. I could have handled a flipped boat.

So not a massive beat on the numbers, close but not a terrible one --- just that Jack, woo!!!!
