Bad Beat Diaries – The Bad Beat For One Drop

$25K Satty winner Connor Drinan gets flushed out.

Sometimes a somewhat standard bad beat takes on epic proportions depending on the spot that said beat comes in. For Connor Drinan, winner of the $25K satellite to the Big One For One Drop, his bad beat of a lifetime came on the biggest stage of the year – the $1M buy-in One Drop.

According to PokerNews, Connor and One Drop competitor Cary Katz got their stacks in the middle, both turning AA face up. Katz found himself freerolling Connor after the flop brought two hearts and, well, you know the rest…

Drinan busts the One Drop holding AA and Katz holds on to take 8th place for a $1,306,667 payday.
