re: Poker & Laying Down Pocket Rockets
Thanks for the help, yeah - it was limit.
I'm a big newbie at this and looking to improve my game, I later regretted it and wanted to make sure I wasn't regretting it for the wrong reasons.
I had my KK's cracked three times as well as lost twice with AA in the same day, so was very weary of boards like that. Tilt, I guess.

That flop is not scary (and we have a straight draw), and the 8 only makes one hand.
I didn't even see the straight draw! Also, by preflop betting, do you mean everyone was betting hard, thusly they had more chances of having high/made hands(ie, a pair)? This is an interesting way of looking at it that I've never thought of before.
