Todd Brunson's $2 million bad beat

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.

Now that, would be hard to take. However I think when your opponent has a hand of two pair and up it makes it easier to console yourself.

I think you shouldn’t think he is lying when saying we won about $25 million, he isn’t saying how much he lost, this doesn’t mean this $25M are the total of profits of his career. And that bad beat, that sure is a bad beat, straight against full house, and, worst of all (hate when it happens to me) beaten on the river. His was worst because of the amount in question. $2M, gosh…

Yeah, really sick and inevitable. As comparison should ask him, how many $ he won with hit nut ? look like he had luck in poker like his father. But I never saw him had high rank at WSOP. Is he good at MTT ? or just ring game ?

2 million on one hand! Hard to believe this type of stuff takes place. Wether I had 25 million in winnings I guess I'd be just like him in remembering that hand. Just sick!
