And he goes all - in with 150.
It was a turbo table ( so I did not have much time to think )
I figured out that the best move is to call with so many outs.
Turn : 2 . River : K . NOT giving me either a flush or 2 pairs.
Do I suck ???
Or it was right to move all in?
Sorry, but you suck. Not for calling the all-in necessarily, but for not folding to his first raise on the flop, or at most flat-calling it.
You re-raised with 3rd pair and a low FD - this is not a hand you want to get into a raising match with. You lose most times.
Think about what he could be holding that make him want to raise the flop instead of just calling your bet (other than AA). AK/AQ/AJ diamonds suits this, and beats your flush draw. Any pair over the board. Top two pair or trips. Heck, there's now a whole host of hands to beat you. Two pair or trips are your only really good chance, and what are your odds of hitting 5 outs?
Having said that, once you've re-raised and he pushes all in, you're pretty much committed by the pot odds
. His push would usually mean (to me) that he doesn't have 2 diamonds.
Still, I think you should be check/calling this flop, and seeing another card before committing.
