I know its frustrating when you don't get paid off but it's much better than losing your whole stack with AA \ KK when you have given other players value to call and outdraw you.
Your right, i don't want to have to many people seeing the flop and giving them a chance to out draw me. Thanks for the advice, i hope it goes well and i start getting paid off more often. It is very frustrating not getting paid off, but i just got to deal w/ it and hope i don't make to many mistakes.
