Poker Dictionary – Bad Beat


The world of poker is a vast one. The game is fun and complex at the same time. As you dive deeper into the game, you will realise how huge the poker world is. You will always find something new to learn every day. One thing that is sure to always keep you on your toes is the vocabulary of the game.

To equip you with all that there is to know in poker, we bring to you poker terms with their meanings, uses, and importance in our poker glossary section. In this article, we shall discuss a poker term that is commonly used in poker conversations – Bad Beat.

What is a bad beat?

A bad beat in poker is when a strong hand loses the pot to a stronger hand. When a considerably strong hand loses to a hand that was unlikely to win, it is said to be a bad beat. This can happen when a player makes a strong hand on the flop or turn. However, an opponent makes an even stronger hand on the river to unexpectedly take the pot. 

Example of Bad Beat

Player A hits a full house on the flop. Since player A has a full house, he/she plays aggressively because a full house is a strong hand to play with. However, Player B  hits a flush on the river. In this case, Player A, who had a strong hand from the start, will lose the pot to player B. Hence, player A is having a bad beat.

How to deal with Bad Beat?

Bad beats in poker are inevitable. If a player faced a bad beat, it does not mean he/she made a strategic error. Bad beats can be mentally and psychologically demotivating for players, however, it is important to remember that it is just a game. One can make up for the loss by playing strategically further in the game. It is also important to not let the bad beat affect the rest of your game.
