Poker phrase about an improbable loss on a hand of cards. Means that you started the hand way ahead but got outdrawn, thus you suffered a bad beat.
Many casinos and card rooms offer extra incentives and jackpots for very bad beats (such as losing with four of a kind).
Playing Texas Hold-Em'...
I have 2-3
You have A-A
Flop comes A-2-K
Turn is a 2
River is a 2
In this hypothetical, I put a bad beat on you since your three Aces was way out in front of my pair of 2's after the flop.
