Dude... Seriously... Great on winning and great on breaking your string of bad luck but dont come to a poker community and admit that u got lucky on the turn and turned around after winning and left the table.
No offense my man but serious lake in poker etiquette.
If u worded it wrong ok but i think that in this situation with a big pot you have to see a round of blinds or something.
Those guys were probably cussing u big time if u scooped and ran before the next hand.
I know i would
Ok, I'll admit that it was a lack of etiquette to leave the table right after I win bcz it's a huge image of "hit n run" or "hustle and roll". But I left the table for several reasons.
Reason 1: Guys with Kings and Queens were mad at me. They're not gonna be happy. Guy with Kings was already starting talking shit about me "can't believe this guy puts up all of his chips on a draw and sucks out" One asian old man and one old caucasian lady who weren't even IN the hand were already giving me a mad-dogging look against me like I can already read their mind of what they're thinking about me "wow, this guy's a fish and won a huge pot"
Reason 2: While I'm up, it's better to save it, take a break, and then join different table with 300 again and have better bankroll management than to lose 1600 which includes all of my hard work I donked hard for plus my initial money.
Reason 3: People were hating me in that table when I hit my flush on the turn. I already have enough hate by the whole table for donking out. I only feel bad for guy with pocket Kings. Guy with Queens shouldn't even be mad bcz whether I won or not, he never would've won anyways bcz he was behind kings the whole time. And the guy with 56h, I was ahead of him the whole time. If there's someone who should hate me, it's only the guy with Kings who should be mad.
Reason 4: My roommate barely got even for his money and wanted to leave while he was even.
I left about 45-50 bucks or so for the dealer since I left around 10 yellow chips(each yellow chip was $5). That's MORE than enough. I have to wait about 2-3 rounds till I become big blind. But I hit my adrenaline when I won the huge pot and I couldn't stop myself from enjoying the huge pot I won. At least I didn't celebrate or scream when I hit my nuts and won. I celebrated with my friends after I got out of casino. I have manners and etiquette of not celebrating when sucking out.
