    You need to be at least level 60 to get this, since the 5M table won't open to you before then. You also need to buy the Lids Shark felt and shark chairs, and play with them. (They're relatively cheap, compared to your buy-in.) I highly recommend Solution for Poker Pro in World Series of Poker: Full House Pro to level up. (There aren't level achievements in the Win 8 version, but you still need to get to the level first.) If you're going legit, chances are you'll be at level 60 by the time you get 5M.

    This one's going to hurt... unless:

    1) You don't mind losing a lot of money,
    2) You and a friend both have 5M, or
    3) You have 10M+ and play with an alt.

    A "bad beat", if you don't know, is when you have a great hand and you get trumped by something better. An example is if you have a King-high flush, but your opponent has an Ace-high flush. Or a higher straight. Or quad 9s over quad 8s... you get the idea.

    So the point is that you have to LOSE at the high-stakes table on a hand where a random is probably going all-in, since they know they have a good hand.

    Safer to do this with a friend, or with an alt. Since it could take a while to get a Bad Beat, a turbo macro would work fastest. Both players turbo A (check) every turn, and go to the showdown every time. Eventually you'll both get a great hand at the same time and one of you will get the achievement. Eventually. It may still take a while.

    Any player can get this achievement as long as the felt/chairs are there. You don't have to be the host or own the stuff yourself. If you're playing with a friend who's hosting with the felt/chairs, you can win it at that table.
