Same thing happend the day before when I had TpTk and villain shows 9 high.
Separate topic, but I'm going to hit on it because you brought it up. The situation you had would more than likely happen to you if you played with the guy for even 1000 hands if you were stacking off with top pair medium kicker... that is more than likely a terrible play in your case and I can say that without seeing the HH.
Back to topic. For me, it really doesn't have all that much on getting info on villains, because I already have my notes on the regular fish that pay me off, so it doesn't matter how long I sit down with them in a given session. It more comes down to getting onto a good table and getting your mind into the game. That will not happen in 10 minutes.
