I've heard people say that it's all luck. I've also heard that experience with the game is still your best bet. I've seen drunks win hand after hand and old pros make dumb mistakes when the cards are going against them. Why is it that some people contract incurable diseases and miraculously go into remission? Why can a guy who barely made it through high school find a job that enables him to climb to the top of the financial heap? Is it luck, or is it something else?There are nights when all one can do is lose, and others when a five dollar bill pays off the big one in a matter of minutes. Nevertheless, one keeps hoping that it's more than a twist of fate. The inevitable question of some higher power that's on your side is ever present. Do only the good people win?What follows in Bad Beat is a fairy tale of six individuals in a poker game. Or, is it really a fairy tale? Do love and generosity make some people more eligible to hit what has come to be known as a "bad beat?" Is it simply a matter of being in the right seat at the right table at the right moment? Winning is more often a matter of luck, and the biggest question remains what is "winning" after all. Who are the real winners? You decide. Place your bets.
