Bad Beat Of The Year Award
This is my favorite bad beat (so far). It was January(or February) at Badger Bowl, and we played Omaha H/L Pot Limit. We were just learning the game, but had a lot of fun. I had a nice starting hand: Kh,Qh,Ac,2c. Turn 10d gave me a nut straight. With one more heart on the river I could make a nut flush. There was four players in the hand, so I bet the pot thinking if another low card comes I can at least chop, if not scoop the pot. Other three idiots didn't have much. All three were just drawing to a nut low(bad habit for PLO). Well, poker gods have their way of having fun. River was 4h, that made my Ace high flush, and a nut low for other three, and a staright flush for PeteZa. So my odds from: scoop 65%, and win high 98%, down the drain, and I got $0.
