Just like smd said above, losing a hand is part of the game--many times when you are way ahead. The only thing you can do is try to keep the pot smaller so you can hold off getting stacked. The A on the turn woulda slowed you WAY down. But still....part of the game bro. Sorry about the hand.
Completely disagree... this hand is the definition of a suckout. When a losing hand (not counting legit draws) is all in against you and wins, that's a suckout.
Also, you DEFINITELY want to get stacked here. You are a huge favorite to win... he has only 5 outs. You won't get him in a better situation than this to get your money in. But like everyone says, a 20% chance to win is a win every 5 times. If you do it 5 times, you'll probably lose one.
