The Worst Bad Beat In WSOP History?

The WSOP Main Event is underway in Vegas, but despite an expected 8000 or so players and millions of hands to be played, they will be hard pushed to top the ridiculous bad beat suffered by Bryce Yockey…

By: Andrew Burnett

The brutal hand occurred when play was four-handed in the $50,000 Poker Players Championship, one of the most coveted titles in the game.

Yockey, dealt the second-best hand in 2-7 Triple Draw, 3-bet Josh Arieh out of the small blind and watched on as his opponent proceeded to call bets and draw cards on each round.

From being a 99.843% favourite to win, Yockey watched on in disbelief as Arieh proceeded to turn over the winning hand.

"No fucking way! You made a wheel? I got number two...oh my god dude, that’s insane", a shell-shocked Yockey stated as he watched his bracelet dreams disappear in what may have been the worst bad beat in living memory.

…but it will take something special to top a 0.16% chance romping home!
