That is really tough. It never ceases to amaze me how peopel with AA thing if they lose its a bad beat. AA while a great card to start, once other hands join in it starts to lose its value the longer the hand goes on (in my humble opinion). However, what cannot be assessed is the relative position of each player in the hand or tourney to determine whether its a pretty bad loss or a fait acomplis! If you were both all in then its a flip of a coin! Keep smiling and move on to the next game.

Posted by thefly131: Well postflop it s a bad beat. You could only be beaten with 1 card.
But still it happens sometimes.....
I once lost with quads vs a higher quads
I had 66 (checked on BB)
I pot raised, one player calls
on the turn a K
I pottraised again and mu opponent raises to allin
I call and he shows 99
on the river he gets a fourth 9 and wins the pot
That's even worst ! Dark side is luck factor, right. We can't do anything, just watching and get hurt and never stop think why should get that one ? And next time you will in lucky side, Have you been get it ?

Am I going to be the first writing this was a runner runner? I think I am… I know AA is a lot stronger than 77, and after the flop gives each one triples, that turns it even harder, but it only shows that anything can happen when waiting for the cards on a Hold’Em game. For more that we know and study and read on the books, we always have to wait for the table cards to be considered winners or losers of each hand. But of course it’s sad when something like this happens.
Even in omaha hi it's an (almost) impossible fold when your top set becomes a full house. That's a cooler, a setup or whatever u wanna call it. This kind of very unlucky hands are the reason why having atleast some kind of bankroll management is important. But I prefer losing to that than losing to some retard shoving a flush draw.
