I'm not talking about money, I'm just talking purely statistical.

Here's mine.
I was playing here in a live game I scrouged up from around the dorms. There were a few drunk people, and couple of very loose players, and one or 2 who thought they were pretty solid. I get :10c :Jc in early position. I limp in and so do 2 drunks and one solid guy.

Flop comes :Kc :8c :7c

I don't want to be put on a possible slow play, so I bet about 1/2 the pot. The drunk guy to my left shove all in. I think for about 4 miliseconds and call.

He flips :6s :6h

OK.....well.....whatever. I have this hand locked. Here comes the turn..

:7h

Yes, the only card that can save him is a 6! Here comes the river...

:6c

I couldn't believe it. I looked up the odds of this on cardplayer.com and as it turns out, I was 97% to win on the flop.

What is your worst beat?

He actually had a 4 outer (6 or 7 gave him a boat).

I've had a couple true one outers take away pots from me. The one I remember the clearest was from about a year and a half ago in one of my last sessions at DJs.

Playing with the ususal early crowd which consisted mostly of old farts trying to spend a few hours away from home. A couple were reasonably good (mostly lucky) but there was this one older than dirt regular that we called grandpa. He was the original calling station. He'd call down any amount of bets on any pair and but if he bet, you better have the nuts to call him. Classic calling station guy.

I had raised preflop with QQ and hit a Q high flop on a board that was someting like Q82r. I opened and got a couple of calls including grandpa. The turn was an 8. Grandpa fired a bet. OK he has an 8 in his hand. I just called hoping to keep the others behind me in. They folded, so I figured I missed a bet (grandpa would have called the riase). The river is the unbeliveable case 8. I didn't have to call to know he had an 8, but I did just in case he forgot what cards he had been betting. He flipped up 87o for the rivered, runner-runner quads.

I've had a few one-outer beats since then, but that one is the one that sticks in my mind. Not a huge chunk of coin (in a 3/6 game), but it was still an very improbable beat.

I've only had one bad beat in my life.
I flopped quad Kings and they were snapped off by quad Aces.
