The poker gods can be cruel sometimes. You can make all the right moves at all the right times in a hand, got it all-in as a massive favorite, and watch your opponent get bailed out by the deck. As you probably know, this is what the jargon calls “bad beats” or “suckouts”. Another type of bad beat is the so-called “coolers”, when your really strong hand runs into an even stronger one. As much as it hurts to live through any of those, they are part of the game we love, poker. So, PokerStars decided to post a compilation on their YouTube channel of the most painful bad beats their streamers had to live through. This video features Ben “Spraggy” Spragg (quite a few times, actually), Lex Veldhuis, and Parker “tonkaaaa” Talbot.
