As far as bad beats go, they don’t get much worse than this.

For those of you who are unaware of the rules in poker, allow me to explain.  Mabuchi has four-of-a-kind with aces, which is pretty much one of the best hands you can have in Texas Hold’em Poker.  One of the few hands that can beat it is a Royal Flush, which just so happens to be what Phillips is holding in his hand.

If you told anyone that the last hand you had at the World Series of Poker was four aces, they would probably think you won the event.  Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case for Mabuchi.  And for those of you wondering what the chances of two players having four aces and a royal flush on the same hand are, the answer is one-in-2.7 billion.
