A literal bad beat

Thankfully, this was not my hand. However, this is the very definition of a "bad beat." A friend of mine sent this to me - he unfortunately was the hero. In a casino with a bad beat jackpot, he would have been the winner! Royal flush over Kings full... that's when you know you run bad!

  1. not in our casinos (St Louis)..

    I believe you need quad 8s or better to qualify (using both hold cards of course)

  2. A cooler? Yes. A bad beat? No. Especially with 4 different full house combos that beat him and the Straight Flush. A bad beat is when you flop quads with two in the pocket and lose, as I did in Atlantic City a few years back playing in one of the only rooms without a Bad Beat Jackpot. FML.
