I had pocket 8s, flop comes A 8 4, I went all in against A8 and off course he got an ace on the river. He then told me sorry, said I deserved to win that hand and transfered back my $10. This is the first time something like this happens to me! If every player was like that I would be up big time by now.

Wow. Very odd behavior indeed.

Sure, he can be sorry he sucked out on you, but suck outs are part of the game too.

After all, it's not like he was bluffing or went in with garbage and sucked out...
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁

what a guy!

That's the weirdest bad beat jackpot in history--having the money come from the other guy.

I bet he has a great mom, though.

He also told me to be careful not to go on tilt and to stop playing if this made me too mad.

Maybe he was a she, then! That sounds like classic Mom Advice!

I wouldn't have accepted the money. The interesting thing about most games, including poker, is that sometimes the better player doesn't win. If the better player is supposed to win every time then you should be playing War (then again, how can you be good or bad at War?). Bad beats are a part of game. Sometimes the work for you, sometimes against you.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
