A player who often plays weak cards and has overcome significant odds to win several hands determined by the final card dealt; a player who does not fold bad hands and has laid many bad beats.
EXAMPLE: "I enjoy playing Hold'em at the lowest stakes offered in my local casino, where people tend to play worse hands than in the higher stakes games. Even though I hate it when the river rats outdraw me, I know that I tend to earn more when my opponents are staying in with bad hands."
