Runner Runner

A runner-runner refers to improving a hand on both the turn and river to make the winning hand. Although a rare occurrence, when it does happen, they tend to be runner-runner flushes or straights. It is a bad beat in the truest sense of the word and when a player catches the perfect runner-runners it can make the losing player go on massive tilt.

EXAMPLE “I had my opponent crushed with a flopped straight but he made a runner runner boat to win a decent sized pot.”

In this hand, you can watch Olivier Busquet come from 0.4% to win a hand in runner-runner fashion at the EPT super high roller in Barcelona.
