That bad beats happen online and live and to poker pros as well as "hobby players" is nothing new. However, some bad beats are worse than others. Todd Brunson, son of the living poker legend Doyle Brunson, has been quite active on Twitter lately. A few days ago, he was bored and asked his followers to ask him questions. One of the questions was "What is the sickest bad beat you ever had?".
Todd answered that it was a hand in which the flop came 2-3-10 and he had 4-6. The turn card 5 gave him the nut straight and he and his opponent went all in. The opponent showed 5-10 for top two pairs and Todd was only 1 card away from taking home a pot of $2,000,000. But unfortunately a 10 completed the board and his opponent took home the huge pot with a full house. But even though Todd lost a huge amount of money in the pot it seems like has plenty of money left as, according to himself, he has won about $25 million dollars on live poker during his career.
