You are completely missing the point cashin.
It doesn't matter that I lost money on this one hand. I decided from past actions that most of the time here I'm ahead and that this villain is going to keep betting away with whatever he has. I was right on both counts.
If he had flipped his cards over when he bet on the turn are you going to do anything but call him? are you going to even contemplate raising? No you aren't. Not a chance in hell!
He hit a miracle river. So what. Yeah it really really sucks but if my opponents always have to get insanely lucky to take money from I'm doing something right. I'll let this guy and anyone like him bet away with his tens until he has nothing left to bet with cause if we both sit down and play these same starting hands the same way enough times that's what is going to happen.
Don't be results oriented. If you made the right decisions you played it well if you didn't then you played it poorly. Winning or losing a single hand is completely irrelevlant to if you played it well. Pushing him out of the hand by raising would have been a massive mistake on our part and the fact he sucked out on a 2 outter doesn't change that fact.
