Committee for the Removal of Bad Beats

I am starting a new committee. It will be for the replacement of the word "Bad Beat". The committee believes that bad beats only happen when you outplay your opponent so badly that all he can do is cry and pray to god for a miracle. It would be better to call these episodes "Outplaying your Opponent", however, this is not as catchy as Bad Beat. So the purpose of this committee is to come up with a snazzy word that has a lot of synergy going for it. It will then replace the word "Bad Beat" and eventually cause harmony in the world of poker. All suggestions are welcome.

Actually, I don't think we have to get rid of the term if we just enforced its proper usage.

If you played your hand poorly trying to increase the pot and let the guy suckout on you... that's just your fault... Now if I let you suckout on me... well that's a bad beat.

Taint check. When you get all that money in good and you lose it's just the poker gods doing a taint check to let you know they still run this motherfucker. TAINT CHECK!

How about the Twist of Fate? Or, if you want something more positive, how about Golden Gloves, this way its golden, but it just ends up hitting you in the nuts.
