Brag, Beat, Variance (BBV)

Terms used to summarize a story told on poker forums, usually written after the story to serve as cliff notes. The explanation following the word Brag is usually the highlight of the story. Conversely, the "Beat" is the lowpoint of the story. The "Variance" response is usually an unexpected, or unintended, occurrence. Made popular on 2p2.

Example: Brag: Went to Vegas, met some pro poker players. Beat: Lost a lot of money playing poker with them. Variance: They know who I am now, but it's because I lost so much money.
