Poker Glossary: Bad Beat

This is something that all players are likely to experience from both sides throughout their career. Generally, this is when a player manages to win the pot by a fluke. Essentially, there is always a favourable hand and a bad beat is when the less favourable hand ends up being the winner of the pot.

A simple example would be making a full house with JJ with an AAA board. Another player could be holding 99 and spike a 9 on the turn and the river to make quads.
